Actor Yi Yangqianxi, also a member of Chinese boy band TFBoys, won three major awards - most popular film actor of the year, praiseworthy variety star of the year and most commercially valuable star of the year - at the 2019 Tencent Entertainment White Paper Awards held in Beijing on Tuesday night. However, the star was not able to accept the awards until near the end of the show because he was busy taking exams at university. 

The lateness amused many Chinese netizens.

"Last year, he missed the red carpet because of class, and this year he missed the award due to exams. Life is hard for him," one netizen commented on Sina Weibo.

"We support him! He is a role model for millions of fans. If he escapes the exams for a prize, it would negatively influence young people," another netizen posted.
