Aaron Kwok to Appear as Ox Demon King in Hong Kong Concert

Aaron Kwok will return to the Hong Kong Coliseum on March 9, 2013 for his “De Showy Masquerade World Tour Encore Live in Concert 2013”. The 9-day concert will reprise successful elements from his Coliseum performance last year. Aaron will also appear as characters from his movies such as Cold War <寒战> and the yet-to-be released, The Monkey King <大鬧天宮>, in which he portrays the Ox Demon King.

In conjunction with his concert, Aaron celebrated the launch of his latest music video, “Secret Language” <天机密语>.  The music video is made up of scenes which Aaron took out from the commercial he filmed with Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) for PCCW Mobile.

Concert Preview

At the launch, Aaron and his dancers also performed a preview from his concert, in which he plays the Ox Demon King in Donnie Yen’s (甄子丹) new movie, The Monkey King. Aaron revealed that the stage for his concert is modeled after the Crystal Palace, which according to Journey To the West <西遊記>, is in the sea. However, not only will the stage be filled with marine elements, it will also encompass aspects of the land and sky too.

Hot elements from Aaron’s concert last year, such as the transformer and the trampoline , will still make their appearances, while new and more difficult stunts will also add more excitement to the new concert.

Aaron’s costumes for the concert will once again be designed by William Chang (张叔平). Having seen the drawings of his costumes, Aaron refused to disclose too much, knowing that William may change his designs anytime, creating a surprise not only for his fans but for himself.

Focusing on Movies

Aaron will put his energy into his movies after his concert performance. Speaking of Cold War 2 <寒战2>, Aaron is excited at the prospect of working with Chow Yun Fat (周润发) again. He said happily, “I saw the news on Weibo and I really hope it’s true! I know Fat Gor has watched Cold War and liked my performance. Though we have worked together in The Monkey King, I would like to pit against him again,” and then added emotionally, “Fat Gor, I’ll wait for you!”

Admitting that he has been disappointed at not being nominated for his performance in Cold War, Aaron nevertheless respects the Hong Kong Film Awards’ committee’s decision and is glad that he still has the support of his fans and Fat Gor.

On Yuan Xiao two days ago, Aaron has rushed home to visit his mother. When he was asked if he brought his other half, Lynn Hung (熊 黛林) along, Aaron declined to elaborate, saying that work comes first and his mother is the most important person to him right now.

  1. “Ox Demon King”

    First, Donnie Yen as Monkey King is already wrong. Now Aaron as the mighty and temperamental Ox Demon King? Isn’t he a bit small and his voice a bit too weak to be that character? Why not cast him as 3 eyes god?

      1. Funn,
        Have you ever watched Aaron Kwok in a live concert?

        I saw him perform once in the USA and he was rocking the stage. 🙂

        Based on character stills of Donnie Yen as the Monkey King, he is barely recognizable. Perhaps this will also be the case for Aaron, as the mask will overwhelm his handsome face.

        Maybe they had another taller muscle man for the 3-eyed god?

      2. Haven’t seen him live but I do know he will be awesome since he dances and such. The description makes the concert having very nice backdrop, etc.

        A lot of actors in JTTW are bare recognisable so eyes and body lamguage is very important. The story is set during the most tumultous time or rather perhaps worst moment of Monkey King. I am afraid Donnie Yen looked like a confused old monkey in the poster as opposed to a cheeky playful and even menacing angry one. Can’t they cast someone else or in HK there is no young action star?

  2. Am I the only one who thinks he can still be cute even knowing he’s hittings 50’s? haha wow…

    1. Nope you’re not the only one! He is more than cute, he is one hell of a hot approaching 50 guy!

  3. He should be the Monkey King, he’s way cuter than Donnie Yen.
    Love his concerts!

  4. Jayne and anyone here ,do you think this movie will be better than Stephen Chow version of journey to the west movies ?
