Yu Shuxin, widely recognised as Esther Yu, is celebrating Chinese New Year (CNY) here in Singapore.

And… you might actually have a decent chance of encountering her.

Before I delve into further details of her visit, let me provide a little background information about the actress for those who may not be familiar. Esther Yu’s academic and personal journey has intertwined with Singapore in ways that might surprise many.

Esther Yu is LASALLE’s Alumnus

Surprisingly, Yu has not only been here as a tourist but a student as well. She was born and raised in Shanghai and ventured to Singapore to pursue her degree.

Beyond acting, Yu’s array of talents extends to singing, showcasing her versatile artistry.

Her participation in Youth with You, a Chinese idol reality show in 2020, culminated in her debut as a member of the girl group THE9.

Despite the group’s disbandment in December 2021, Yu’s singing career continues to flourish, especially through the original soundtracks for the dramas she has starred in.
