Most Overrated Asian Countries

The Top Ten Most Overrated Asian Countries

South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Japan is ostensibly the most overrated nation. However, South Korea is actually more overrated since the disparity between perception and reality is greater. Korea has recently become more popular as a result of their entertainment industry. It has created the illusion of a Korea that does not and has not ever existed. South Korea is more similar to China than K-pop and K-dramas let on. Pollution, unhappiness, corruption, racism, overworking, social exclusion of foreigners, and a generally depressing environment is all-too-familiar to Korea. I highly encourage you to read more on Korean culture and life in South Korea in order to have an unadulterated view of the overrated nation that is South Korea.

Everyone keeps on saying this is the best country...

Polluted air which they blame on the Chinese, while there are coal plants all over Korea. Technology which they pretend is their own, but have stolen from US, Japan, Finland, etc. Lastly, not a free country. Bloggers are jailed, newspapers are monitored by the state, dissent gets citizens jailed.
Simply put, this is a country constructed by lies which has never worked hard to achieve anything. They have been propped-up by other countries since the Korean war. Real ignorant racists here, too.

Overrated? Really? I'd say that China is an extremely underrated country because it holds the world fastest supercomputer and good culture, history and great landscape. Many haters are bashing on China. - 50

They are always claiming stuff that obviously is not theirs. - reniero

This is problely the stupidest list I've ever seen I mean overrated countries that's retarded and offensive

Stop having children. Just...that's enough. 1 out of every seven people on earth is Han Chinese.

What the hell?! It's already illegal to have more than one child there!

And really? What's wrong with that?! It's pretty great being Han Chinese, thank you VERY much. Now scoot your racist butt away, please and thank you! - keycha1n

Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

Japan is an overrated joke besides Sony and Aiwa.

Anime/manga are all predictable, pretentious cliche-filled piles of garbage. Fights are 99% talk, every damn tree is always cherry blossom in bloom - and all the girls have H-cup breasts and mouse-squeak voices.

No offense but, Not everyone who likes Japan only likes it for anime and manga. Most people like it for It's culture and scenery. Stop being biased, It's annoying - MLPFan

Modern Japan is an amazing country. The Japanese are polite and courteous people. They are only listed third here due to the jealousy of other Asians in undeveloped neighboring countries.

India is overrated because of its green forest, beautiful mountains, tall buildings, monumental structures, tea gardens, metropolises and smart cities along with an efficient tourist system

The British ran all India with an official staff of just 2,000...but look now. Millions of Indians in charge and what a bloody mess!
