Tencent held its “2019 Star Awards” (腾讯视频星光大赏) ceremony on December 28. A lot of A-list celebrities and popular stars were present. Yang Yang (杨洋), Xiao Zhan (肖战), Wang Yibo (王一博), Yang Mi (杨幂), Dilraba (迪丽热巴), and Zanilia Zhao Liying (赵丽颖) were all called on stage at the same time to accept the VIP Star award.
Everyone had already approached the stage, but Wang Yibo kept trailing behind and turning his head back, seemingly looking for someone. Netizens were curious whether something had happened as the live broadcast didn’t show anything peculiar.
The mystery was solved when netizens posted up fan cams. As it turns out, Wang Yibo was waiting for his “Legend of Fei” co-star, Zanilia Zhao Liying, because she was sitting further away. Wang Yibo stayed behind to help Zanilia Zhao Liying as she was wearing a long dress. He walked up a few steps first and held his hand out for her in case she needed to hold onto him while she walked up the stairs.
