Ding Zhen, a 20-year-old Tibetan young man in SW China's Sichuan Province, has captured the hearts of netizens after a photographer posted a video of him on Douyin, a domestic version of the TikTok short video platform. His starry eyes and innocent smile impressed millions of netizens.

Soon after noticing Ding Zhen’s popularity, China’s entertainment companies flocked to his hometown and invited him to make an appearance on variety shows.

Instead of entering the entertainment industry, he chose to become the local tourism ambassador of Sichuan’s Litang County, Ganzi Tibetan autonomous prefecture, promoting tourism in his hometown. “The world outside is big, but I love my hometown and I don’t want to go anywhere,” said Ding zhen.

A promotional short clipDing Zhen's World was released online on Nov. 25, generating a massive number of posts online across China.
