In front of the most important crossroads in his life, Ruan Zhaohui chose his favorite Cantonese Opera instead of the most popular movie. Ruan Zhaohui seriously said that he likes Cantonese opera because he likes stage performance, which can truly communicate with the audience face to face. "On stage, I can see the real audience, and the audience can also see the real me on stage. We can communicate heart to heart. I like it and enjoy it. And I don't feel that way when I'm making a movie. " choosing Cantonese Opera means going all the way with hardship. When he was a child, when his companions were playing freely in the open air every day, Ruan Zhaohui had to travel to the theater to practice martial arts, leg raising, waist lowering, somersault and singing "It was really hard at that time. I had been through ups and downs all the time, but I never regretted it.

In 1967, at the beginning of the cultural revolution, Ruan Zhaohui was seriously ill and almost couldn't continue acting. In 1993, when he practiced, the cartilage of his neck shifted and his half body lost consciousness. Fortunately, both of them were cured in the end, and both of them had self-examination and harvest.

According to some comments, Ruan Zhaohui is the only old man who is both a wenwusheng and an Er gang Xiaosheng, but still enjoys a good reputation.

Ruan Zhaohui sighed, "now too many people go to do new things, but they throw away the most fundamental ones, and make Cantonese Opera look like nothing else." "I'm not against absorbing western elements and trying to innovate. I'm in favor of letting a hundred flowers blossom. If we absorb good things and turn them into better things, it's certainly good I do my old play and you do your new play. It's OK to innovate and try anything, but it's not a replacement. That's the most important thing. " when he was young, Ruan Zhaohui was always trying to innovate. He founded the "Hong Kong experimental theatre" in 1971 to try various innovative forms of Cantonese opera. "But after many years of making a big circle, I still return to the starting point in the end, because I suddenly find that the best thing is the original traditional things."

Now I'm going to stick to what I think is the best I think the best and most important thing at the moment is to leave a smooth road for future generations.
