I’m not sure how I ended up putting these two together but if being at least six-feet tall, dark-haired and insanely good looking is a criteria, then both of them definitely make the cut. At ages 23 and 24, William Yang Xuwen and Vin Zhang Bin Bin have an exciting future ahead and this year saw their careers reaching new heights.
Yang Xuwen became a wuxia hero when he played Guo Jing and even landed the the 2017 Chinese Drama Newcomer Award, his first ever, alongside Legend of the Condor Heroes co-star Li Yi Tong and Princess Weiyoung’s Yukee Chen.
Vin Zhang on the other played the tortured second lead in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and he was so charismatic that many fans fell in love and empathized with his character in spite of his villainous tendencies. It seems he’s also moving up to leading man status and will appear as the Emperor of the Qin Dynasty in the upcoming historical drama The King’s Woman.
