Stardom can wait for Quan Yifeng's teenage daughter

Stardom can wait for Quan Yifeng's teenage daughter

SINGAPORE - With her long wavy locks, alluring deep-set eyes and porcelain skin, 14-year-old Eleanor Yu Kaixin is a ravishing beauty.

The 1.65m teenager looks like a cross between Chinese actress Fan Bingbing and Korean actress Lee Yo-Won.

And she is making jaws drop and eyes pop as the ambassador of local celebrity hairstylist Addy Lee's new hair product, addyli, after appearing in a new series of addyli's promotional pictures and commercials.

But do not bet on seeing her in films, television or on the runway - at least not in the next couple of years.

It does not matter that Eleanor - the only child of MediaCorp host Quan Yifeng - is the latest local celebrity offspring to set tongues wagging with her gorgeous looks.

Addy Lee, her god-father and chief executive of Monsoon Hair Group, is against her entering showbiz at such a tender age.

"Kaixin has the X-factor and she's a natural at posing. But she knows very well that her mum and I don't want her entering showbiz right now," he told The New Paper in Mandarin yesterday.

"In fact, Yifeng has turned down many opportunities for her (to appear on TV) over the past few years.

"To me, she's still a kid. She should focus on her studies, because even if she wants to be in showbiz in future, she cannot be a bimbo. I've been in this industry long enough to know that bimbos don't last long, they'd be the first to get eliminated."
