Two reasons:

1) It was too resource intensive for other regions
2) They changed a lot of the original Silverfrost storyline and characters, and in turn scrapped and remade most of the Silverfrost map. BnS CN helped make the new version of Kang Ryu City and called it Zaiwei. 

I really miss the original version. It was just so much cooler =(
But don't be too upset. Very soon we will be getting 3.0 Gunwoon city. It's not as big, but it's more crowded and does take some aspects from the original Kang Ryu City.

What you haven't seen you cannot miss. There are people completely new to the game for whom the Zaiwei is the real deal and not the crappy version as they don't know any better. :P Besides you don't really spend time that much looking at the city but instead doing dungeons either in your server or cross-server.

It would be nice if Zaiwei still looked like this. It would make the city feel a lot more active. At the moment, the only active part of the city is house of pleasures. This map seems a lot more dense, less spread out making it feel much more busy.

In CN Kangryu is translated to Jiangliu because of phonetics, but the meaning/"name" remains the same, only that it's in Chinese. TW and JP is the same as far as I can remember. In that aspect, "Zaiwei" is just gibberish, and something ncsoft made up. Wouldn't exactly call Gunwon City more crowded, atleast not much, but it definitely is very beautiful. The Kun city in Seorak too for that matter when we get there.

 

While I dislike the new Zaiwei for several reasons, it is a hell of a lot more practical. The old Kangryu was just simply too big and with too little space to actually get around. As a result players got shafted into the few tiny areas with banks and such, which didn't to wonders for the fps. Not to mention the insane fps drops during questing, even if there very little people around.. Even with dragonstreams you had to walk around alot to get to your actual location, which naturally took time since the city was just that massive. You also weren't teleported around during the main quest, and just getting to all the dragonstreams could easily take an hour. Even though the old Kangryu is absolutely more beautiful and an overall more interesting leveling area (since 30%~ of the main quest took part there, and to boot you had some really, really good sidequests there), as far as practicality goes what we have now really is the better option.
