As we approach the end of 2021, here are the top 10 international male celebrities who’ve entertained and shocked audiences in Singapore this year.
Read on to find out who lands the coveted top spot on this list:
10. Simu Liu
Simu Liu made his Marvel debut in Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings. As Marvel’s most prominent Asian superhero, Shang-Chi made a record US$94.7 million in American and Canadian cinemas over a four-day weekend, making it one of the most successful Marvel films of all time.
Prior to starring in the film, Liu was in the CBC sitcom, Kim’s Convenience.
9. Lee Jung-jae
Perhaps one of the biggest stars of 2021, Lee Jung-jae recently starred as the main character in Netflix’s insanely popular Squid Game.
While it might seem like Lee’s a breakout star in Western media, the truth is, the 1.8m tall talent has been in the industry since 1993. He started as a fashion model before beginning his acting career on television.
The Canadian pop star was one of the top most-streamed artists this year.
Besides releasing some addictive songs, Bieber’s also been collaborating with several brands including Balenciaga and Canadian fast-food chain, Tim Hortons.
Together with Tim Hortons, the singer worked on creating bite-sized Timbits in three new flavours. Timbits are essentially tiny donut balls.
7. Andy Lau
In celebration of his 40th anniversary in showbiz, Andy Lau held a live broadcast to interact with his biggest fans on the Chinese social media platform Douyin in July. Lau also released a new song to commemorate this huge occasion.
While the broadcast was a big success, several of the 60-year-old’s fans from Hong Kong were disappointed that he did not release anything in Cantonese for them.
In September, the veteran actor recorded a mini-concert to celebrate his 60th birthday and performed three songs. The 15-minute concert was uploaded to his fansite, Andy World Club.
6. Song Joong-ki
The South Korean actor mourned the death of his maternal grandmother late last month as he prepared for his return to the small screen in a new drama, The Youngest Son Of The Chaebol Family. Song is probably best known for his roles in Descendants Of The Sun and Vincenzo.

The Crash Landing On You star has had a great year! Not only is he the ambassador for Italian brand Loro Piana, Tom Ford Beauty also announced that he will be the brand’s first regional ambassador in Asia Pacific.
It was revealed in January this year that Hyun Bin was dating his co-star Son Ye-jin.
2. Kris Wu
Actor Kris Wu and several other actors including Zheng Shuang and Zhang Zhehan were recently placed on China’s celebrity blacklist.
According to an official notice by the China Association of Performing Arts, Wu and 87 other celebrities, streamers, and influencers have been blacklisted for illegal and unethical behaviour.
Wu, who was a member of South Korean boyband EXO, was accused of date rape and preying on underage girls after his ex-girlfriend Du Meizhu made public allegations of his sexual assault crimes.
1. Kim Seon Ho
In October, actor Kim Seon-ho was alleged to have coerced a woman into getting an abortion when they were dating. The woman posted the allegation online.
Following the allegation, Kim was dropped as an ambassador for several brands and lost his role in the variety series 2 Days & 1 Night.
The Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha star’s image was soon rehabilitated after his ex-girlfriend clarified the situation and accepted his apology.
