Why fake a space walk?
Wind back the video to 1:18 minutes, when Zhai crawls out of the hatch. Look in his visor. There is a wide-angle view of the hull of the spaceship. What do you see? There is an obvious three-row array of some kind of lighting system or some other spaceship equipment. It is not studio lighting you can see in Zhai’s wrist reflection, it is a reflection of some equipment (possibly a small light array for the camera) attached to the hull.
But in this day and age where space access seems as easy as buying a ticket to russia, why fake it?

yes i know they have a space station,
But there are things in that video that just don't seem right, i looked at the video and the times in the text you quoted and i saw no rows of lights
do i think that China or anyone else might fake a EVA for public consumption just incase something went wrong, yes, yes i do.
does that mean they didn't do it? no, i'm sure they did. But the powers that be wanted to have a perfect show and aired a pre recorded version

The claim has as much validity as those that man never walked on the Moon and is based on the same sort of nonsense.

No they didn't.

But what about the bubbles?
What about it?
What about the positioning of Earth?
You mean like on the Moon? Same sort of nonsense. With no atmospheric drag, and in a weightlessness condition, a flag will wiggle for a long time from the slightest touch.
what about the flag seemingly blowing around in the wind?
The object at 3:03 shows acceleration
