An airport technician in Xiamen, China, gained overnight popularity on social media after a video of him walking on the runway shot by a passenger went viral. The technician garnered attention of ample social media users in China for his 'casual' good looks and style and the video amassed over million views on short-video platform Tik-Tok.
However, the airport worker's sudden fame caught attention of his bosses who deducted 10 per cent of his salary for violating the company's code of conduct by walking around the tarmac with his hand in his pocket and his uniform untucked. The company issued a notice stating, "Taking into consideration the influential impact this video has made, the aggravated penalty must be applied."
Meanwhile, social media users are drooling over this technician's looks and are comparing him to South Korean superstar Song Joong Ki who starred in the hit TV drama 'Descendants of the Sun' as the captain of a South Korean Special Forces unit.
Citing the pay cut to be too harsh, some netizens criticised the company for their hard-handedness over the video. But, the technician seems to have no qualms and accepted that he was unkempt while at work. "Honestly, I still feel quite happy because it is not easy to become so famous that quickly. My company did nothing wrong, it was my fault for not keeping with the correct standards in terms of dress code and behavior," he was quoted as writing online by CGTN.
He also wrote, " Please don't bombard the passenger who uploaded the video online. I never blamed her, because she didn't mean to cause me any harm."
