A Chinese media network names Zhao Luisi (趙露思), Esther Yu (虞書欣), Song Zu’er (宋祖兒) and Guan Xiaotong (關曉彤) as the four most popular actresses born after 1995. Meanwhile, Leo Wu (吳磊), Liu Haoran (劉昊然), Dylan Wang (王鶴棣) and Wang Yibo (王一博) are voted as the most popular actors born after 1995.
Based on data from TV stations, streaming platforms, blogs and social media, Zhao Lusi comes out on top with a score of 62.14%. The actress was notably praised for starring in this year’s hit drama Love Like the Galaxy <漢燦爛．月升滄海> and Who Rules the World <且試天下>. The two dramas were collectively watched 13 billion times.
Entering the entertainment industry five years ago, Zhao Lusi found her breakthrough after starring in The Romance of Tiger and Rose <傳聞中的陳芊芊>. Last year, Zhao Lusi starred as the second female The Long Ballad <长歌行> but Zhao Lusi received just as much attention as leading star Dilraba <迪丽热巴>. With her sweet image, Zhao Lusi, quickly shot through fame and is one of the most followed stars on social media.
With her rising fame, Zhao Lusi’s appearance fee is also enjoying a healthy raise. It is reported that Zhao Lusi’s drama appearance fee has increased from 12 million yuan to 20-30 million yuan. The actress’ event fee and endorsement fee increased to 2.8 million yuan and 8 million yuan respectively.
Zhao Lusi’s Competition
While Zhao Lusi has two dramas to air next year, industry experts predict that Esther Yu is Zhao Lusi’s biggest competition. Esther had an eventful year and her appearance in Love Between Fairy and Devil was a success. Next year, Esther will be appearing in The Legend of Sword and Fairy 6 <仙劍奇俠傳6> and My Journey to You <雲之羽>.
Many netizens were surprised to find that Song Zu’er’s ranking edged out against Guan Xiaotong. Netizens consider Guan Xiaotong as a stronger actress after having previously won Best Supporting Actress for her role in To Be a Better Man <好先生>. After starring in Twenty Your Life On 2 <二十不惑2> and Hu Tong <胡同>, Guan Xiaotong appears to be turning her focus to variety programs.
Most Popular Male Actor
Twenty-two years old actor Leo Wu is voted as the most popular actor born after 1995. Starting his acting career since he was 150years old, Leo has been working hard to shred his child actor image. In his first break, Leo found success after starring in Love Like the Galaxy.
Meanwhile, 21-years-old actor Liu Haoran’s acting career has a promising start after setting a record for receiving the most nominations at the Hundred Flowers Awards. The young star has a cumulative box office sale of 10 billion yuan.
Wang YIbo who shot to fame after starring in 2019’s drama The Untamed <陈情令> sits at number four in the popularity ranking. While some fans are disappointed with the ranking, netizens argue that Wang Yibo had a mediocre performance in this year’s drama Being a Hero <冰雨火>.
