I'm not happy with the font used for Japanese characters and would like to change it. I'm using Emacs 27.1 on Ubuntu 20.04.1. I did not have that problem with the last version(maybe the default font changed?).

M-x describe-char I found out that the font used for ASCII chars is:

-DAMA-Ubuntu Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-24-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1 (#x44)

the font used for japanese characters is:

-GOOG-Noto Sans CJK KR-normal-normal-normal-*-17-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#xA9BD)

With M-x menu-set-font I fount my desired font for Japanese characters:

-GOOG-Noto Serif CJK SC-light-normal-normal-*-24-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#xAD03)

But selecting it there sets the font for all characters. How can I set the font for Japanese characters only (in my init.el)?
