Yee, 20, snagged the top position last year thanks to the critically-acclaimed romantic crime thriller Better Days (2019), which won him him several awards and nominations, including the Best Newcomer awards at the Hong Kong Film Awards and Asian Film Awards last year.

Yee, a member of Chinese boy band TFBoys, followed up Better Days with two well-received movies - A Little Red Flower (2020), in which he plays a teenager suffering from cancer, and Korean War epic The Battle At Lake Changjin, which also stars Chinese action star Wu Jing and is directed by Chen Kaige, Tsui Hark and Dante Lam.
