TFBOYS (Chinese: 加油男孩, 加油少年), also known as The Fighting Boys, is a Chinese boy band that consists of three members, Karry Wang, Roy Wang, and Jackson Yee.
TFBOYS is considered as one of the most popular Chinese boy band and is regarded as a pop cultural sensation in China.
Since their debut in 2013, they have won many major music awards and earned combined more than 100 million Weibo followers. The sales of band merchandise average more than $17 million per month. Their success was attributed to their fresh, school boy looks, which filled the void of young male idol groups in China; as well as their “wholesome and boy-next-door” image. Their impact has extended beyond the music industry, with their members appearing in films, television shows as well as commercial films.
Due to their image, the group has won a large number of “mother fans”, a group of women in their mid–20s to 60s whom have developed maternal instincts for the boys.
They are also supported by the government; the group was featured three consecutive years (2016-2018) on the CCTV New Year’s Gala, and the Communist Youth League’s official Weibo account often promotes the group’s activities. On the International Children’s Day in 2015, the Communist Youth League released a video featuring TFBOYS singing “We Are the Heirs of Communism”, the song of the Young Pioneers.
They have been selected as a brand ambassador of China’s 2020 Chinese Mars Mission.
