Yue/Ngok Fei admired Zhuge Liang?

Unread postby Uiler » Sat Oct 02, 2004 4:07 pm

I read in a thread that the great general Yue/Ngok (Mandarin/Cantonese) Fei admired Zhuge Liang? Is this true?

Care to tell us which thread this info came from? It might help us find out. :wink:

I believe it's embedded in the "On the favoritism shown to Shu" thread. There's something about how one of Yue/Ngok Fei's martial arts style was supposedly derived from Zhuge Liang.

Yue Fei also made this amazing calligraphy piece out of Zhuge Liang's 1st Memorial. *me wants*

Yes, that's the thread. Does anyone have any more info on this? I'm really interested in this as I really like Ngok Fei and I really like Zhuge Liang so it'd be interesting to see one's opinion of the other. Yue/Ngok Fei lived in Southern Song so one thing I think that this shows is that the legend of Zhuge Liang (and Shu-Han probably) was in full flower well before the Romance of the Three Kingdoms was written.
