Forbes China has released their 2021 China Celebrity List and Jackson Yee tops the list once again for the second time in a row. He shot up from eighth place in 2019 to first in 2020 having won accolades from the 2019 film Better Days. At age 20, singer-dancer-actor Jackson Yee is the youngest among the top 10.
Wang Yibo whose career continues to shine brightly and currently appears in Street Dance of China S4 has moved up many spots from 9th last year to second though perhaps none can beat comedian Jia Ling in terms of improvement as her ranking has made an impressive jump from 93rd to third. She recently became the world’s highest-grossing female director through the 2021 film Hi! Mom. The top 3 are followed by Yang Mi, Jay Chou, Lay Zhang Yixing and Zhao Liying who were already in the top 10 before. Yang Zi ranks in 8th while Jackson’s fellow TFBoys member Karry Wang Junkai climbs from 10th to 9th. Jackson Wang rounds up the list in 10th. Meanwhile, Kris Wu has understandably dropped off from the list following his scandal. He ranked 8th in 2020.
The 2021 China Celebrity List compiled by Forbes China ranks famous personalities based on multiple dimensions such as their commercial value, projects and influence.
