Chinese business magazine CBN Weekly has released their list of top 100 bankable stars for 2018. Compared to last year, this year sees Yang Mi moving from 3rd to 1st. Kris Wu and Dilraba Dilmurat come in 2nd and 3rd while Luhan who was last year's top placer was bumped down to 10th. Karry Wang is the youngest in the top 5 at nineteen years old.

One new entry that stood out to me is Nine Percent member Cai Xukun who rose to stardom after winning the most votes in the hit reality show Idol Producer early this year. He skyrockets to 20th place for his first time making the list. Lay Zhang who was the nation's producer in the same show is in 5th.

See complete list here. It's amusing that the article literally states most celebrities probably wouldn't want to be near the top, clearly alluding to the crackdown on tax evasion that resulted in Fan Bingbing's fall from grace. She is noticeably absent from the top 100 despite previously ranking among the top 5.

  1. you know before i know their marriage wasnt doing well and i was thinking it's hard juggling a successful career with a family esp when her husband family is in Hongkong but her career is mainly in the mainland. after the divorce, she gave an interview saying that she doesnt have to announce to the world when she spends time with her kid. she doesnt get on Weibo to announce she's back home and will play with her daughter. they just head for different ways imo it's better this way to clear up all the rumors so they can do their own thing. i'm sure they know best

  2. hope we get to see more and more ladies get on the top 10 ....Great job to YM, Reba and ZD ^_^
