She is Korean. She is a Korean. Is there any difference in the meaning between them?

She is Korean is the correct way to talk about her nationality. She is a Korean- we are missing some sort of noun at the end. For example- She is a Korean girl, she is a Korean actress.

She is Korean is correct but after she is a Korean, you should say something. For example: she is a Korean student.

As GuideDogSaint said there is no rule about this. Bit there are some nationalities where there is a single word (like a Canadian) and others where there is not (a Korean *person*). To me using the Asian ones like "a Chinese", "a Japanese" or "a Korean" sounds rude. Others, like "a French" or "a Spanish" don't sound rude, they just sound wrong. I'm not sure why.
