Yang Yang (simplified Chinese: 杨洋; traditional Chinese: 楊洋, born 9 September 1991) is a Chinese actor. He made his acting debut in the Chinese television drama The Dream of Red Mansions (2010). Since then, he has received recognition for his roles in television dramas The Lost Tomb (2015), The Whirlwind Girl, (2015), Love O2O (2016) and film The Left Ear (2015).

Early life

At the age of 11, Yang was admitted to the Department of Dance in People's Liberation Army Arts College in China.

In December 2007, he was chosen to play the lead role Jia Baoyu by director Li Shaohong in The Dream of Red Mansions. One of the most expensive Chinese TV series produced at RMB118 million (US$17.55 million), the 50 episode drama premiered on July 6, 2010.

Yang featured in The Founding of a Party (2011), a patriotic tribute detailing the process of establishing the Communist Party of China. He continued to build up his filmography, featuring in war dramas The War Doesn't Believe in Tears and Ultimate Conquest (both in 2012), and romance series Flowers of Pinellia Ternata (2013).

On April 29, 2014, Yang ended his contract of 7 years with his company.

2015: Breakthrough

Yang achieved breakthrough with his role in The Left Ear, a coming-of-age film which is also the directorial debut of Alec Su. The film was a box office hit, and Yang received acclaim for his portrayal as Xu Yi. His popularity continued to increase with his appearance in travel-reality show Divas Hit the Road, and he topped the "2015 Chinese Reality Show Star Ranking". He next starred in action-adventure web-drama The Lost Tomb based on the novel of the same name. The Lost Tomb was the most watched web drama of the year, and Yang gained more popularity with his portrayal of Zhang Qiling. Yang then played the male lead in youth sports drama The Whirlwind Girl, which gained one of the highest viewership ratings of the year and established Yang's status as a "ratings guarantor". He also released his first single, "Tender Love".

At the end of the year, Yang won several awards including the Most Popular TV Actor of the Year at iQiyi All-Star Carnival Night 2016; and the Most Anticipated Actor and Most Influential Actor awards at the China TV Drama Awards.

To thank his fans, Yang released the song "Love is Crazy", a jazz/rock single. He next starred in romance film I Belonged to You, which was a huge success and broke box office sales record for mainland-produced romance films.

In 2017, Yang starred alongside Liu Yifei in romantic fantasy film Once Upon a Time.
