Why is it easy to find Westerners obsessed with Japan and Korea, but not China?

  1. China lacks cultural exports because they focus on their domestic market. Korea has kpop, Japan has anime
  2. China is/was communist (even if its in name only) and USA is staunchly anti-communist
  3. Western media always focuses on lack of freedoms, censorships and human rights issues in China rather than the positive sides of China
  4. China is ‘taking away US jobs’ and an evolving superpower
  5. Chinese tourist’s bad reputation certainly doesn’t help
