Zhu Houren, 66, also made a separate post on his own Instagram, expressing his support for his son.

“After your child grows up, it’s just like flying a kite, the more you fly it, the higher it’ll soar. And when they turn back to look at us, we’ve [somehow] become smaller and smaller. We might still be able to accompany them for a while more… but those who’ll be with them forever are their friends, their other halves. As parents, we have to learn how to let go…

Joel has never disappointed us, [I’m certain] that he has made his decision after much thought and consideration. Dad… wants to become an old man who’s sensible,” he wrote in his caption.
