Explanation on why Eastern Novels Have Harems (My Opinion)

So some one I Know asked me why do a lot of Chinese novels have harems. So this is my Opinion if you think this is wrong feel free to share your ideas. 
So first you must understand is that China's past culture is way different than western culture. When we write western fantasy novels we draw inspiration from the middle ages example knights of the round table / Dragons. SO it makes since that they draw inspiration from their history in the past where any one who was important had a harem example on wiki the Imperial Chinese Harem System. And the fan service is just a side bonus. So even though some times i can be annoyed why reading the harem genre when I think about this approach it makes since to me.
