The term, literally translated as “top flow,” short for “顶级流量明星” (“top traffic stars”), refers to “showbiz celebrities with a huge following who generate massive online traffic whenever they refresh their social media accounts, or a piece of news or gossip involving them is revealed.” Those who often appear on the top of Sina Weibo’s “Hot Search” list are considered “top traffic celebrities” in China.

I like Jackson Yee. He’s not only cute, but very skilful at dancing and singing and passionate about acting as well. No wonder he is popular with a huge following.
