Deng Lun (鄧倫) is currently one of the most popular actors in China. His popularity skyrocketed after 2018 drama Ashes of Love <香蜜沉沉烬如霜>. Currently, the 26-year-old star can be seen in variety show, I Want to Play Basketball <我要打籃球>.
Deng Lun and Bryan Chang (張書豪) were named captains of each team. Other celebrity participants include Jeremy Lin (林書豪), Lin Yifeng (李易峰), and Du Feng (杜鋒).
During the competition, Deng Lun was very unhappy that the referee did not call the opponent’s illegal use of hand and had instead penalized his team for a foul. He stood up for his team and loudly shouted, “You cannot treat my team members this way!”
Many netizens praised his actions, leaving comments like, “I like Deng Lun’s passionate attitude and his appeal for a fair competition”; “Protecting his teammates and seeking competitive fairness, Deng Lun is so manly!”; and “This is not a variety show in Deng Lun’s eyes; this is a real basketball game that needs to be played fairly!”
