I'm studying Japanese originally because most good games are from Japan. But I really like Japan's culture of respect. I don't study Korean, but I can differentiate Korean from Chinese and Japanese, unlike most Americans.
To be honest I don't know what got me into asian culture, but because of my interest in the culture it got me to want to learn it more in depth, learn the language, find some entertainment, and even try the food. My sister brought home her Korean roommate two christmas' ago and I got to try a dish called 불고기 I believe it was.
I guess it's hard to differentiate 3 countries people. Especially for westerners. I heard that westerners did not know a lot about Korea in the past. I remember that in the movie, there were Chinese characters on the wall in Korean people's room. Film maker might not know Korea has own language. :D
