Australians - Broadly yes, though Chinese hate them now.
Why do the Chinese hate Australians , now? Is it because the Aussie gov. put a stop on the Chinese house shopping spree? I heard that they were buying everything, from houses, condo to vineyards

The British has lots of stereotypes about the Irish. It's hard to be considered the most likeable people when your next door neighbors don't think so.

Yes, and Australia called them out on genocide in Xinjiang, oppressing Tibetans, threatening aggression against Taiwan and destroying democracy in Hong Kong. The Chinese went wolf warrior and now they hate Australia and are telling their people not to spend money there. It's all rather petty.

The British have stereotypes about every country they colonised, attempted to colonise, and then some......It's not for nothing they are among the least liked on earth.

If you're going to be guided in your analysis of this matter by the British.....It causes me to question the basis for all your other opinions about other opinions.

Peruvians like Colombia and consume a lot of their culture.

For the rest it's more part envy, part rivalry - like family. Gran Colombia was a 4 nation country like the UK. Venezuelans, Ecuadoreans and Panamanians dismiss Colombia much like Scottish, Welsh and Irish dismiss England but at the end of the day they're tied to each other whether they like it or not. Relationships and cross border familial ties run deep. Opinions should really be formed outside the " family" sphere. They're less sensitive and complicated. Even within Colombia cross-regional rivalry is hella fierce! Like 5 Catalunyas vs Castille.

Am I the only who suspects OP meant to say "likED" but ended up with "likeable"? I'd understand 'likeable' as someone who is easy to be liked: Neil Degrasse Tyson, Dalai Lama, Obama etc while "liked" is someone who is just liked per se, aka: British soccer hooligans just 'cause they're English but not because people like Liverpool/alcoholism etc.

K-pop culture is largely a made-up world. No one in real life looks like that (naturally) or acts like that.

Not at all, don't confuse political narratives with ordinary people's opinion.

Relatively uneducated Chinese consider all westerners the same. They don't care whether you are Australian or American.
Educated Chinese can separate government from people well.

Unless you intentionally talk about politics, nobody even cares where you are from.

As a Briton I can categorically say that the Irish people I've met have been kind, friendly, charming, funny, lovely people. There is a portion of Irish people that are still playing the 'victim' card and the Irish government have not been very pleasant over the 'Brexit' thing, Politics can be so divisive but people tend to be similar the world over, looking at every region on the planet you can see that being 'neighbours' is never easy but personally I like having the Irish as neighbours, the people themselves don't look down their noses at us the way the French tend to, you could certainly have worse neighbours anyway :-D
