Programme details

Jin Yong Sharing Session Series
Special Programme of Jin Yong Gallery

Topic (I) Savage, Chivalrous and Gentle: Extracts of Films and TV Series Adapted from Jin Yong's Novels and their Associated Collections

Jin Yong is a prominent martial arts novelist, screenwriter, lyricist, author and journalist. He maintained a close relationship with the movie making industry from the 1950s to the 1970s and has profoundly influenced Hong Kong's popular culture. Mr Ng Kwai-lung has long been collecting items related to Jin Yong, including a wealth of articles from newspapers and weekly magazines, as well as advertisements, handbills, stills, novels and comics. As a collector of Jin Yong's works, Mr Ng will introduce some of the items in his collection as he joins cultural critic Mr Matthew Cheng Ching-hang in the sharing session on Jin Yong and his legendary world of martial arts. Participants will learn about Jin Yong's achievements through an overview of his involvement in film making, his founding of Ming Pao Daily News and supplementary publications, movie and TV adaptations of Jin Yong's works, serialisations and compilations of his novels, and comic artists' works based on his novels.

Topic (II) The Fascination of Novels: Jin Yong's Novels and the Origin of Martial Arts Novels
Special Programme of "Splendours of Dunhuang: Jao Tsung-i's Selected Academic and Art Works Inspired by Dunhuang Culture" Exhibition

There is certainly a magnetic appeal to Jin Yong's novels. His unique imagination and writing skill immerses readers so thoroughly in his novels that they often put everything else aside until they finish a novel. Both Jin Yong's martial arts novels and his life are legendary.

Dr Wong Chung-ming and cultural critic Mr Matthew Cheng Ching-hang will help participants discover the unique, almost magical power of Jin Yong's novels, and from the perspective of popular fiction and martial arts novels, they will investigate the origin and development of new-school martial arts novels.

Date 27 January 2018 (Saturday)
Time 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Topic (III) A Wave of Enthusiasm for Martial Arts Novels: Jin Yong's Novels and their Adapted Films and TV Series

As all readers may have their own ideal images of Guo Jing, Huang Rong, Yang Guo, and Xiao Long Nu in mind after reading the novels, no particular actors or actresses playing these roles can satisfy everyone. But most readers want to see Jin Yong's novels reproduced on screen. In Hong Kong, his novels have been made into both movie and TV adaptations in past decades, making Jin Yong second to none in terms of the number and success of adaptations of Hong Kong novels.

Veteran film critic Mr Po Fung will participate in the sharing session with host Mr Matthew Cheng Ching-hang, guiding participants on a journey spanning Jin Yong's novels and their film and TV adaptations for greater insight into the multiple interactions between the adaptations and Jin Yong's novels.

These are part of our collective memory and represent breakthroughs in local animation technology. The theme of this exhibition is the development of Hong Kong anime. The guest curator will introduce to the audience the development of local animation in the past decade, the unlimited creativity of local artists, and the ways in which they pursue breakthroughs and tackle challenges.
