Yi Yangqianxi stands in the rain while weeping uncontrollably. “You know, I always keep to the side of the road as I walk and sit in the back every time I take a bus because I hate making contact with people. I am afraid that I’d die right after I open myself up to someone,” he says. This is just one touching scene in the upcoming film A Little Red Flower (《送你一朵小红花》), in which Yi Yangqianxi plays Wei Yihang, a teenager who is diagnosed (诊断) with cancer. The film tells the story of Wei and another girl fighting cancer together. Actor Hu Ge spoke highly of Yi’s performance on Sina Weibo. The trailer (预告片) has caught the interest of Yi’s fans concerning his new role: Will Yi Yangqianxi’s portrayal (扮演) of Wei differ from Xiaobei in Better Days (《少年的你》)? Moviegoers will find out in theaters on Dec 31.
