Everybody watch and listen to their own countries' or territories' production, but how many people also like the production from other places?

How popular are the tv dramas, movies and music of JAPAN, HK, SOUTH KOREA, TAIWAN and CHINA in other countries and territories within Asia and other Continents?

Apart from the Korean Wave, how well-known are the pop stars of these places outside of their own countries and territories?

Korean drama are considerebly quiet popular in Indonesia, but most of the people still watch sinetron (Indonesian crappy telenovela), which apperently popular in Malaysia hahaha! China, Taiwan and Japan not so much i suppose, but Taiwanese and China tv series and movies are very popular among Chinese Malaysians.

Are you sure? All the Asian countries mentioned have some audiences in other countries. When you watch foreign movies, tv or MTV videos there are usually subtitles in the local language in different countries across the world. People in Asia also watch Hollywood movies with subtitles as not all of them are good at English. There are specific TV channels in various Asian countries broadcasting in stuff from Japan, HK, South Korea, Taiwan and China. For example, in Mainland China, there are many stuff from HK, South Korea, Taiwan and the US broadcasting in different local TV channels. There is almost none from Japan however due to a strong anti-Japanese sentiment in China. Goto a disco in China and most music are from HK, South Korea, Taiwan and the US, Mainland Chinese music maybe just a quarter of the total.

It is a fact that they have a significant overseas market as well. Famous singers or groups have concerts in other countries across the world with full attendance.

A ton of people who watch these Hollywood movies don't understand English. That's why there are subtitles and dubbing. Korean pop and drama is popular all over East Asia, from Indonesia to Japan.
