I honestly think you're deluding yourself if you think Noah's background includes some substantial percentage of East Asian-ness. It doesn't impress anyone if he's 1/16th Korean. For all intents and purposes, he is white. You just want to see someone non-white because it would validate your delusion that what they've done with the casting is right. And that rhymes.

What I wonder is, say we find out (which we wont) that he is 1/2 Asian or 1/4 Asian, where does the argument go? What happens to the 'Asian kids can't identify with the character' standpoint? Is that still the case? It would have to be, right? Either you think kids of Asian decent can identify with him now or not. What is actual heritage may be is useless.

Pro-casters don't want Noah to be white, so it's natural that any vaguely ethnic-looking features are going to mean more to them. If they didn't want him to be part-Asian so badly, any fractional East Asian background he might have wouldn't matter as much to them.
