Tuesday, 07 July 2020 18:32:00

Popular online platform iQiyi made a splash last week when it premiered a new variety show, “Let‘s Sacalaca!”

The program focuses on surfing, an increasingly popular sport with the younger generation, after it was included in the Olympic Games by the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee. The show intends to provide insight into the skills and charm of the sport.

Celebrities, such as Huang Xuan, Han Dongjun, Qiao Xin and Huang Minghao, are the show’s stars. Viewers can witness the stage, screen and singers as they go through the trials and tribulations of surfing as professional coaches tutor them, while offering public awareness of environmental protection, in particular, marine life.

iQiyi also offers a series of interactive online programs to tackle topics of health care, water sports, beach fashion and this season’s entertainment. Viewers are encouraged to upload their own fashion, fitness and skin care tip videos onto the streaming platform.

Experts, meanwhile, will be invited to share their expertise in sun safety and protection, sports injuries and emergency beach rescue. The interactive programs will be held through September 18, offering viewers fun things to do in the summer at the beach.
