Six-year-old Huahua is a Sichuan Opera enthusiast. After watching his father Zhou Zhenghua, a Sichuan Opera actor, perform on stage, Huahua developed interest on the art form and often pretended to "dance with swords and guns".

Since then, Zhou began to teach his son basic Sichuan Opera skills. He recorded his son's learning process and published them on his social media account "Sichuan Opera Boy Huahua" with hopes to introduce the traditional theatrical art to a wider audience. His account has gained the love of many netizens and raked in more than eight million fans thus far.

This January, Huahua began to study Sichuan Opera systematically under Zhang Lianseng, a renowned teacher of Sichuan Opera. "My teacher has very strict requirements, but I still work hard even when I'm very tired. I like Sichuan Opera. I think face changing is very cool. I want to become a hero in Sichuan Opera," Huahua said.
