Through his lead role in 2016’s hit youth romance drama, Love O2O <微微一笑很倾城>, Chinese actor Yang Yang (楊洋) shot to immense popularity. Since then, the 26-year-old has enjoyed an influx of opportunities. After finishing filming obligations for the fantasy action drama, Martial Universe <武動乾坤>, Yang Yang will begin filming for The King’s Avatar <全职高手>, where he will be portraying the lead role of “Ye Xiu”.
