Why are the Western, Korean and Japanese culture so popular but not the Chinese culture?

The CCP is more concerned with expanding their economic progress than nurturing their entertainment industry for soft power.

Western culture – Hollywood

Korean culture – Kpop

Japanese culture – anime

Chinese culture- Wuxia

Ok, so Wuxia isn’t exactly something… that’s widely promoted to foreigners or anything. It also lacks the modern day cultural elements because its tied to Ancient Chinese culture- something that no longer exists. The CCP also makes no effort at all to promote any of its entertainment to Western or other Asian audiences at all – they focus on the large domestic market.

That’s why Chinese culture isn’t as ‘popular’ – the government simply doesn’t see it as a top priority to push its soft power, given its large domestic market.
