1. Start with a caucasian model - skin is pinker compared to asian skin tone
2. Desaturate a bit, and shift white balance towards a cooler tone (or his camera just got it slightly off due to the mixed lighting anyway)
3. Slightly increase magenta in tone curve

That's how I could simulate that, but that's with a caucasian model. Getting that skin tone with an asian model will be much harder.
