Liu Xiao Ling Tong

That's China - - That's China 城市漫步 △ -

One may know Liu Xiao Ling Tong for his su­perla­tive per­for­mance in the Jour­ney to the West, but not know who Zhang Jin­lai is. One may know the su­per power of the Mon­key King - his som­er­sault cloud bear­ing hu­man­ity's dream to fly through the air, but may not know that the ac­tor por­tray­ing of the world’s most loved su­per ‘mon­key’ does not even drive a car. In the eyes of the world’s Jour­ney to the West fans, Liu Xiao Ling Tong is syn­ony­mous nd­with Wukong but, in fact, he also played many of the other sup­port­ing roles in the 1986 TV se­ries and, ear­lier, var­i­ous fig­ures such as Lu Xun and Zhou En­lai in a good many big screen cre­ations. He is Liu Xiao Ling Tong, or Zhang Jin­lai, the Mon­key King, as known by the world; and he must be one of the loneli­est peo­ple on this planet, for­ever sit­ting up in his heav­enly throne.
