Forbes has announced its 30 Under 30 Asia list for 2019, and there's some familiar names in there for Asian entertainment fans!

The list chooses 30 people under the age of 30 for 10 different categories - the individuals are chosen as the most influential and up-and-coming in their special field.

In the Entertainment & Sports category this year, Forbes have included K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, former 2NE1 leader now solo artist CL and Singaporean pop band The Sam Willows.

Among the film names is Mr Sunshine star Kim Taeri and one of China's biggest actors right now, Liu Haoran, Taiwanese musician and actress Nana Ou-Yang, along with Chinese director Bi Gan.

Other notable names are Korean DJ Peggy Gou, 88rising's Joji, Korean gamer Faker, and Japanese dancer and choreographer Koharu Sugawara, who you may recognise from Taemin's "Move".

Congratulations to all!
