Quan Yifeng wrote on facebook that Li Nanxing has been her first very idol in Singapore since she was 16 years old, even though she felt that he was leading her ex-husband Peter Yu astray at one point.
In the online posting, she related how she had once saw a crowd at Orchard Road during her teenage years. From afar, she spotted a tall figure who turned around and smiled slightly, mesmerising her.
Since then, the veteran actor has been her idol, reports Omy.
However after she entered the showbiz industry, Li Nanxing displayed odd behavior and there was a lot of negative news about him.
At the same time, he also participated in vices such as drinking and gambling with Peter Yu. This led the actress-host to be unhappy with Li at one point and she even scolded him.
However, she later realised that Li could not be blamed for leading Yu astray. Even though both men owed a huge amount of debts in the past, Li overcame his vices and went on to become a successful actor.
Quan added that Li has changed a lot since, choosing to maintain a silent facade most of the time even amidst rumours of marital problems.
Recently, she finally addressed him as 'Big Brother' for the first time, and took the initative to approach him for a photo.
