Donnie Yen Chi Tan in THE MONKEY KING (SAI YAU GEI ji DAI LAU TIN GUNG) played Sun Wukong. Aside from the mighty red armor look, he also had the humorous "Bima Wan" official costume look. This was the cutest time in his film career. "Cute Pretty Monkey is not easy to play, before the performance I had to do a lot of monkey related research." During the shoot he almost played every scene half kneeling, which made his waist especially tired.
In the film Sun Wukong was given the "Bima Wan" title to be a minor heavenly horse official. Sometimes he would grind his teeth and stare and sometimes he would be in deep thought. Yen Chi Tan performed the pleased with himself expressions thoroughly. "During research, I watched documentaries, the DRAGONBALL animation, and went to the zoo to visit monkeys. (Stephen) Chow Sing Chi's Sun Wukong performance was also my important analysis target."
