Everybody interested in Asian culture now watches K-dramas and occasionally listens to K-music, although among this crowd Japanese anime and manga is still the preferred entertainment medium.



Wrong. Not samsung, but Psy
or 9Muses or After School..haha......overall, it will be a permanent flavor for Asia.

Things are relative. Of course there are always more male engineers in any country.
However, if you go to any graduate program of Electrical engineering, mechanical engineering etc. in the US, you will find most if not all female PhD students are Chinese.

When I studied (engineering) in the US, all female professors in the departments I stayed in were Chinese, ALL.

That is true. Outside China there are a lot of asian women studying engineering.

But you have to take into account that engineering is a very good career to take if you want to leave China. With engineering compared to business it is much easier to get the first job and the visa.

In China where engineering is not that much better career than business, then you will find the same trend as in the west.

It is true that fewer women like engineering than men do, but there is another reason:
In China different departments have different "admission scores". Students also need to choose either the "science path" or the "arts path" and take different exams. Engineering departments admit students from the science path exclusively. Business major admits students from the arts path, or both.
In the science path, there are more male top students than female top students, so much more male students succeed. In other words, most female students are just not good enough to be accepted.

The Japanese are actually much more similar to Germans in temperament and ethics than to the British.

Both Japanese and Germans are not only reserved and strongly proud of their own culture; they also share similar work ethics in terms of aiming for perfection, accuracy and precision. That's why both countries deliver some of the best technology in the world.

Both also shared similar historical patterns. Like Germany, Japan was new to the scene of colonialism and was eager and ambitious for more territorial and economic gains in the early 20th century.
