Hangzhou, China, August 15, 2023: A new movie is setting the scene for the new Asian Games sport of break dancing, or breaking, at this year’s Asian Games in Hangzhou.

As an Asian Games-themed movie, “One and Only” was shot in Hangzhou in its entirety. With the Hangzhou Asian Games as the background and the new sport of breaking as the theme, it was directed by Dapeng, written by Su Biao and Dapeng. Chen Zhixi served as the chief producer. 

Starring Huang Bo and Wang Yibo, the film tells the story of Chen Shuo (played by Wang Yibo), a young dancer with passion and in pursuit of a dream. Under the guidance of Ding Lei, a street dance veteran and coach (played by Huang Bo), he overcomes many obstacles and shines on the stage he loves. 

By creating a breaking-themed Asian Games movie with Hangzhou characteristics, the general public can feel the charm of the Asian Games and the beauty of the city inside and outside the stadium.
