Dr Louis Cha is a world-famous Hong Kong journalist, community leader and literary giant. In 1955, he published his first martial arts novel The Book and the Sword, in New Evening Post, under the pen name Jin Yong coincidentally. The novel was an instant success, and he went on to create 15 extremely popular martial arts novels, ending with The Deer and the Cauldron in 1972. Jin Yong is the most influential Chinese martial arts novel writer in the 20th century, with readers across the globe.
Jin Yong's martial arts novels have inspired producers of movies, TV series, radio dramas, stage dramas, video games and various cultural and creative products, deeply influencing the development of popular culture of Hong Kong over the past decades, and even becoming a type of common language for Chinese readers around the world.
The Gallery features more than 100 exhibits including early editions of Jin Yong's novels, invaluable manuscripts, documents and photos introducing the early career of Dr Cha (Jin Yong), the creative process behind his martial arts novels and the impact the novels have had on Hong Kong's popular culture. Through the interactive exhibits in the gallery, visitors may also enjoy excerpts of films and TV series adapted from Jin Yong's novels, along with theme songs, and to discover more about the knowledge embedded in his martial arts novels.
With a view to ensuring a comfortable environment for visitors to enjoy the exhibition, we will adopt admission control on site when necessary. Your kind understanding and co-operation are much appreciated.
