These two plants were found growing in the wild but they do look familiar.

Will have to agree with Impatiens pallida. Thank you even though i am confused about one aspect. How is a plant reported in US growing wild in Asia?

Same way plants native to Asia show up growing in the wild in the US--someone plants some in their garden, then they reseed and get out into the wild. But there are other species of Impatiens that are native to Asia so perhaps yours is one of those rather than I. pallida.

#1 maybe Strobilanthes. Perhaps Strobilanthes rankanensis or Str. attenuata?,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&biw=1845&bih=1023&wrapid=tlif134964415346310&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=iO9xUN2XN4bhtQbIhYGQCA .

The Impatiens also could be Imp. edgeworthii or Imp. scabrida.
