China is very big in Sci-Fi fiction. There are probably millions of Chinese Sci-Fi fictions published online in mainland China for the last ten years, and thousands more are being published every year. Maybe the best ones are found in this website, but you have to know Chinese though.

www.qidian.com


Kickstarter has a program to translate some of the best Chinese Sci-Fi fictions into English. Some of the works they have already translated are


"•"The Fish of Lijiang" by Chen Qiufan (2013 Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Awards Winner)
•"A Hundred Ghosts Parade Tonight" by Xia Jia (2013 Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Awards Honorable Mention, 2012 Locus Recommended Reading List selection, and reprinted in The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy, 2013 Edition, Rich Horton ed.)
•"Grave of the Fireflies" by Cheng Jingbo
•"Pepe" by Tang Fei
•"Spring Festival: Happiness, Anger, Love, Sorrow, Joy" by Xia Jia"

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-translation-p

Others like The Three-Body Problem triology Sci-Fi fictions will not hit US bookstores until at the end of year 2014.

China has a huge number of internet writers. Some of the works are very long.

This here is a mix of scifi and fantasy and its funny how many parallels one can find between fantasy and reality, particularly involving themes such as world gubbermint.

Very much recommend checking out One Piece episode 283 english dubbed of course.

South Korea has made some fantasy/sci-fi type films over the past few years.

India also has some Bollywood films that are sci-fi oriented (Ra.One, for example).

Most of those are poorly written, tbqh.
Maybe some Korean online games? Idk if they're counted as "fiction" but they've made tons of online games(most of them are terrible yet addicting from what I've heard as I don't play any), perhaps a couple of them are more on the sci-fi side?

The ones I've read are poorly written at very least, have you read any of those? Those um, "e-books", written in Chinese are mostly pretty damn horrible, like at the level of Twilight or 50 Shades of Grey.
I forgot that I happen to read those like a few years ago when I posted my previous post, then I remembered when Bettafish mentioned it, and I'd say that's perfectly logical.
I've never read The Three-Body Problem though. And I know there's this guy Ni Kuang who is pretty famous, but I'd say his stuff are more fantasy than sci-fi.

I do troll a lot when it comes to China, I can't help it since there are several Chinese nationalists here and they all have "irrational" defensive attitude.
