The 22-year-old unstoppably popular Chinese singer and actor Wang Yibo seems to be a trending topic on Sina Weibo on a daily basis. On Sunday, a hashtag about him running and giving people high fives captured netizens' attention. 

After taping a Spring Festival gala for Hunan Satellite TV on Saturday, the star, wearing a bowtie and dressed in a clean white shirt paired with black pants, was seen running in a hurry somewhere when someone in the crowd stuck out their hand, which Wang immediately high fived. The person turned out to be a magician who taught Wang magic on the show. 

Netizens theorized that Wang must have been running to catch a flight. Some netizens  said they were warmed by his friendliness and consideration, even though he was in a rush. 

According to reports, the magic show was one of the most-viewed performances at the gala, in large part due to Wang's participation.
