Maybe, however, In Asia, there are lots of stories about somewhat similar to "vampires".

Even Buddhist's,Taoist' scriptures describe some monster-like vampire.

 

I like you lol, you have humility good sir.

I was wondering if you had any local legends and myths about the vampire like creatures or spirits that you could share.  It would be interesting to learn them first hand from someone with “feet on the ground”.  If you come back...

Jiangshi, Which is a Chinese Zombie, That is made from Taoist charm, oriental talisman, has some shared features of vampire. Like ghoul, first made jiangshi has low intelligence. After that, When jiangshi survived long time and obtain 'qi' for long time. It evolves to Vampiric 'jiangshi' and gets inteligence. vampiric jiangshi  sucks blood of victim. 

Secondly, there is myth that one form of a shinsun(仙人 chinese "xian")(man who gets 'qi' lives long time and obtains paranormal power) is similar to vampire. Shījiě xiān (尸解仙—"Escaped-by-means-of-a-stimulated-corpse-simulacrum Immortal", literally "Corpse Untie Immortal"):The lowest level. This is considered the lowest form of immortality since a person must first “fake” their own death by substituting a bewitched object like a bamboo pole, sword, talisman or a shoe for their corpse or slipping a type of Death certificate into the coffin of a newly departed paternal grandfather, thus having their name and "allotted life span" deleted from the ledgers kept by the Sīmìng (司命—"Director of allotted life spans", literally "Controller of Fate"). from(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xian_(Taoism)

Vampire exists in 'plasma form' , As Shije xian replaces their body into material.

That’s interesting, and thank you for sharing that with us.  They do sound pretty similar to western vampires.  In some of the mythos vampires won’t become their fullest self until they feed on the their first victim, they are granted some of the powers like speed, strength and enhanced perception while still being able to walk in sunlight.  I’m no expert on the subject

What do you think of vampires? Are they exist today? Are they exist in our dimension?

They're imaginary beings.

This one is about 10 minutes long if you are interested in the Norse "Again Walker"  It is mostly a Zombie, but has some vampire tropes.

Worth checking out if  you are unfamiliar.

There are "emotional vampires " who provoke strong emotions in people and then drain them of that energy. I've known a couple and they are very exhausting, confusing, and toxic to be around. One of them told me that I was "like a battery to something inside of him that needed a battery... "!! Yikes!
