I've heard it said that family obligations are stronger in the Far East than in the US (and Europe?), making audiences more likely to ask about family members and thus making Conveniently an Orphan more common than 'mere' Parental Abandonment (i.e., non-discussion of a character's parents). Is there any truth to this? If so, is there enough truth to it to merit mentioning this tendency in the article?
