         Monkey King Actor's Absence from Big Gala Riles Public

For CCTV's Lunar New Year's  eve gala that herlas the Year of the Monkey, one "monkey" is widely considered by Chinese to be indispensable.He is Zhang Jinlai, better known by his stage name, Liu Xiao Ling Tong, meaning The Little Six —Year —Old, which marks the age he made his stage debut some 51years ago.

Zhang started as Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, in the 1986 television adaptation of  "Jounery to the West". The 25 episodes fantasy series, though filmed with the crude special effects of the day,was aired every summer, familiarizing several generations with the charm of the world's most idolized monkey.
While the public had long deemed it a no—brainer that Zhang would be a shoo—in for the nation's highest—rated variety show, Zhang recently divulged that he was invited to the Opera Show instead, which i sa companion show with a much lower viewship. It also implies that he would not be on the all important gala.

Some surmised that Zhang was not invited by the CCTV gala because at 57, he is considered too old. That is unusual for a show that resorts to
"Thanks for the Memory" appearances as a hallmark. Zhang's image as the Monkey King will linger long in people's memory—with or without the hoopla of a TV gala.
