Don't let young people blindly pursue acting stars. Performing stars cannot be strong. Why do young people worship show stars? Come with money and come with more money. In this outbreak, the scientific and technological circles of the industry have donated in units of billions. Except for Han Hong, the performing arts stars donated enthusiastically, and sports stars have not seen a few donations! . Those who have become famous before have emigrated. The rise and fall of the country depends on education, technology and medical care! Therefore, it is necessary to establish doctors, scientists, teachers, and soldiers admired by the whole people! They are supporting the backbone of the nation!
