Since ancient times, cultural exchanges between China and the countries belong to the Chinese character cultural circle have been very frequent. Among them, ancient Chinese popular novels have an important influence on the culture of the countries in the Chinese character cultural circle. Water Margin, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Journey to the West are all great representative literary works during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. They are deeply loved by the people of Japan, South Korea and Vietnam. But these three countries have different emphasis on their acceptance. Japanese have a deep love for Water Margin, Koreans have a crush on The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and Vietnamese love Journey to the West. The differences in the acceptance of representative works of ancient Chinese popular novels in different countries reflect the differences in national psychology and cultural identity under different geographical conditions.
