    I would say 1) China(obviously), 2) Mongolia(mostly negative), 3) Japan, 4) Korea(esp today due to K-pop wave phenomenon).

    China is definitely the most influential - China is the oldest (continuous) civilization in the world. It shaped not only its neighbors but many other growing civilizations. I'm obviously not an expert on the region but from an outsider's perspective Confucian-influenced/majority Asian nations are more successful and ordered than their neighbors.

    Confucianism is perhaps the most influential philosophy/worldview in history and you'd battle to overstate the Chinese's contributions to the world.

    History doesn't start with the modern age. People lack respect for old nations this days.

    China is obvious. I don't have to explain myself.

    It's hard to ascertain the exact influence of Mongols in my opinion. In parts of Asia, their influence is mostly negative while in other parts, their influence is positive. There were also pre-Mongol Empire Mongolic polities/tribes.

    I don't find myself particularly attached to modern Japanese culture, but I did in the past. I can't deny that it has influence in the realm of pop culture and how Japanese products are considered to be superior. But the only thing I like about Japan now are some of the girls, namely the personality and their looks.

    There's nothing much to say Korea. They have good marketing skills, a lot of young people and women are interested in K-pop and K-dramas. Unfortunately, this influence has made many Asians, especially Southeast Asians having some kind of inferiority complex towards Japanese, Koreans, Chinese to some extent. I think it's probably some feeling of inadequacy, but I think they need to feel more pride in their own culture rather than pretending and wanting to be someone they're not.

    Vietnam in the past exerted influence and dominance over their neighbors to the south and to the west. But now it's a different story.

    Vietnam still exerts some influence over Laos and Cambodia. Albeit, China's influence is stronger.

    I think Vietnamese grip over those countries was strong in the past few decades but I think it's getting weaker because China is stepping up its influence there.

    1. China = since Ancient era, well-known civilization. Most influential.

    2. Japan = since Modern era, after World War II.

    3. Korea = recent, very similar to Japanese cultural wave, but still not popular as much as Japanese. Limited to K-POP and TV series.

    Philippians 2:10-11 New International Version (NIV) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    1) China (influencing its Asian neighbors genetically, linguistically, historically, etc./Sun Tzu which was quite impressive when considering its time period/ brought in some prominent innovations)

    2) Mongolia (interesting expansive empire that showed how adept and versatile the Mongolians were from a military perspective that had considerable influence in its own right)

    3) Japan (has considerable influence in modern day but not as considerable as much as China and Mongolia)

    4) Korea (... nothing more than a annexed vessel during Sino-Japanese struggles which is nothing more than a "Americanized" incarnation that has some considerable influence nowadays in some respects)
