Chinese actor Liu Xiao Ling Tong coming to Vietnam
Posted: Jan 04,2011

Chinese actor Liu Xiao Ling Tong will travel to Vietnam for several cultural activities from December 24 to 30. (SGGP online)

He is very popular for the role of the Monkey King (Sun Wukong) in a very popular TV series “Journey to the West" in the 1980s.

The actor, accompanied by officials from the Beijing International Radio Station, will arrive in Hanoi on December 24 and leave the capital for Ho Chi Minh City on 28.

Vietnam is the first destination in his Southeast Asia Tours in the New Year 2011.

The actor will have exchanges with students of the University of Social Science and Humanity and other primary and secondary schools, and offer his signature at Fahasa Book Stores during his visit.

This is Liu Xiao Ling Tong’s second trip to Vietnam; the first visit was in 1998.

Liu Xiao Ling Tong, whose real name is Zhang Jinlai, was born into a renowned artistic family in Shanghai in 1959.

His great-grandfather Zhang Tingchun was even considered "better than a living Monkey King”.

His father, Zhang Songyi, stage named as Liu Ling Tong or "Six Years Old Kid", or famously known as "Nan Hou Wang" (the Southern Monkey King), has been acclaimed by Chinese leaders including late Chairman Mao Zedong and premier Zhou Enlai.

The actor won the title of “Best actor” at the Sixth Golden Eagle Prize, the highest honor in the TV production industry in China, for Journey to the West as Sun Wukong in 1988.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
