YouTube has released its list of Hong Kong’s top 10 trending videos of 2018, featuring content created by local entertainers.

The list features both well-known local celebrities as well as a number of everyday users and local creator groups.

The videos on this list are all ranked by the number of views they received in Hong Kong, although the figures used are for worldwide views because YouTube has not revealed the local-only numbers. Let’s get started.
