The term sick man of Asia or sick man of East Asia (Traditional Chinese: 東亞病夫 or 亞洲病夫) refers to the Qing Empire in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when it was defeated by Western and Japanese powers and was forced to make territorial concessions. This phrase corresponds to "sick man of Europe", referring to the weakening Ottoman Empire during the same period.
It was also used as a derogatory term for the Chinese by Japanese invaders during the Second World War and the years immediately preceding it, in which Japan occupied sections of China.
The phrase features in the Bruce Lee film Fist of Fury and the Jet Li film Fearless. The phrase is also used in LMF's song 1127, which is a tribute to Bruce Lee.
