Why are English people interested in learning Asian languages?*
There could be a lot of different reasons why. I find the Asian scripts intriguing.
I think it is because of the great adaption of Asian communities to the Western lifestyle including English culture. As you probably know, this is how a multicultural society can be build up successfully and peacefully. On the other hand, native western people integrate to the migrants cultures by learning their languages, enjoying their food and respect their beliefs. From my perspective, western guys not only interested in languages but food and girls :) in fact many western men are interested in a long term relationship with Asian chicks, in particular, Koreans and Japanese ones.
For them Asian languages is totaly different thing. There are no letters, intonation is crucial and so on. In additional, it`s just very different culture: West-East. So, why not? )
