    Definitely Hong Kong, since Jackie Chan is practically the most famous Asian actor in Hollywood, along with Jet Li, Lucy Liu, Chow Yun-Fat, Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh, Gong Li, etc. I mean, look at Rush Hour 1-3. They're all very popular.

    If you're referring to the fame in Hollywood, then Chinese films are the most popular, then it's Japanese. There aren't any famous Korean films though in Hollywood.

    These are some famous Chinese movies in Hollywood:

    ....and many more...But these are some of the best movies I've ever seen.

    In the past Japan was #1 because of Godzilla and their Anime movies. Today I'm not sure, but I think it's still the same Japan they export more than any other Asian country.

    even with today economy china is still wayyy behind in movie and film franchies. All of the chinese cultured movies that went around the world are made by hollywood example crouchin tiger, curse of golden flower, house of flyin daggers, etc..

    comedy and drama are easily Korean at its finest

    horror and fiction/ science/ fantasy are easily japan masters

    unfortunetly for china cencership and lack of film making classes they are unable to make high profit films without half of it being director cuts

    Korea is really popular with their dramas, pop music, and online games. Their electronics such as Samsung and LG are also used world wide.

    Japan is popular with horror movies, rock music, anime and video games. Their eletronics such as Sony and Toshiba are also used world wide.

    China is popular with movies that Jenny listed. I wouldn't say their eletronics are very good. No offense, but all their products are kinda crappy.

    I would say Japanese movies are kinda famous for their horror movies. I'm not really sure about other countries.
