[Feature] Kris Wu graces the covers of all top 10 women & men’s magazines

ELLE magazine revealed it’s cover for the month of May today, and the featured star is none other than the incredibly popular young actor/singer Kris Wu. This comes as big news because it officially marks his completion of having graced the covers of all top 10 women and men’s magazines in China in less than 2 years and 3 months!

A summary of Kris’ achievements:

  • 1st male celebrity to be on the cover of Vogue
  • 1st male celebrity to appear on the covers of all top 5 women’s magazines
  • 1st male celebrity born after 1985 on the covers of all top 5 men’s magazines
  • 1st celebrity to grace the covers of all top 10 women & men’s magazines

And a quote that I feel speaks volumes as to why this twenty-six year old is so successful today: “There are many things, if you don’t pursue yourself, other people wouldn’t care. You must do it yourself, in order to do it well. For example, I want to sleep too. But, once I sleep, an entire day’s time would have passed,” — Kris Wu in the May issue of ELLE

Take a closer look at his magazine covers below (I had only included one from each of the top 10 magazines)! Which one is your favorite?

[Feature] A Comprehensive Evaluation of the Acting Careers of China’s Young Male Actors (Li Yifeng, Kris Wu, Luhan, Yang Yang, Zhang Yixing, etc)

This post was written by 诸葛 from Box Office Bar. Original post here. The post is long and a lot of fresh meats are included but we will only be translating evaluations for the ones who have high box office performances.

Note:

Personal box office is calculated by dividing the total gross of the movie by the actors’ placement in the billing. So it goes Movie Gross ÷ Billing Position. For example Jing Boran is billed second in Lost And Love so his personal box office is the total gross of the movie divided by 2.

Box office numbers included in the calculation are only for movies where the actors have top 5 billing.
