 Liushi Lei Lei talks about Jin Yong: he will continue to write Jin Yong. He never thought he would die.


Beijing News: what are you doing when you see the news of Mr. Jin Yongs death? What was the reaction at that instant?

Liushen Lei Lei: I am eating dinner with my relatives and drinking porridge. I was a little confused when I saw it, and then I walked around the house myself, not knowing where to sit, and then sat down on the toilet, as if it was safer. I sat on the toilet for nearly two hours. I used to be a journalist, running a lot of unexpected events, but this is the first time it seems that an unexpected incident is not their own treatment, is related to themselves, it seems that the feelings of the parties.

But the sad one must be the family of the old man. My mood is different from Wei Wan and Li Yangbings farewell to Li Bai and Du Fu fans. They are very lonely like their idols, because no one at that time understood their significance, but hundreds of millions of Chinese are in memory of Jin Yong, like Jin Yong, so everyone is sharing.

Beijing News: have you ever thought of the time when Mr. Jin Yong died? Have you envisaged what you want to say at this time in advance?

Liushi Lei Lei: never before. I have thought about what he would say, but I never thought of his death. And I imagined that I saw him like this, maybe a lot of people, there was no chance to meet alone, maybe mixed in a lot of people, maybe a few words in a hurry, and there was no chance to finish, and he couldnt hear, and I thought about it.

Xin Jing Bao: Before the Six Gods Talking about Jin Yong became a career, what did Jin Yong give you the most and what influenced you the most?

Liushen Lei Lei: the background of my three views is laid by Jin Yong. The two things in Jin Yongs novels are very valuable to me. He has two sentences, one is called the great chivalrous man, for the country and the people, such as Guo Jing resistance to foreign invasion, such as Zhang Wuji resistance to riot, this is the feelings of the country, this is a value in his book, a master heart. Another sentence is, pity my world, there are many troubles. This is the God slaughter dragon in the Ming religion of the song. It is in his book that apart from his country and humanity, he is compassionate to all of his creatures. This compassion is a first-rate writer, something that a first-rate thinker should have. So Jin Yong, I think he is Balzacs outer body, Hugos soul. Family and humanity, which are very valuable things, were not read by many writers at that time.

Xin Jing Bao: Although you have talked about it before, but at this time, I would like to ask again, why do you think Jin Yong has such a great influence?

Liushen Leilei: There are too many aspects of influence. I cant say a few words clearly. You say imagination, right? Vivid plot, deep characters, right? Ingenious stories, exquisite writing, and his deep learning and so on. But in the end, there are several facets that are more impressive than other writers. One is human nature. His excavation of human nature is ahead of others. Another country, as I said earlier, is that you will be infected by the feelings of his country. This is something rooted in Chinese people.

Another is humanitarianism, and you can read his compassion for people. This compassion is not only for those who have been persecuted, who have lost their lives in the war, who have been mutilated, and who have been poisoned, but for all the people he writes. For example, those who are distorted, such as those who are distorted by revenge, Lin Ping-zhi, you are frank, and those who are distorted by love, Ah Zi, He Hongyao. And those who are distorted by power, who have power, will change, such as the unbeaten East, Hongjiao, and so on, he has a kind of pity for them. This is where he is above the rest of his age.

In the literary world after our reform and opening up, we have ruffian writing, writing with that kind of scar, writing with the peasants, right? But what do we have? We have no scholar-bureaucrats to write, no literati dare to say I am a scholar-bureaucrat, I write with the feelings of home and country. But Jin Yong is a scholar-bureaucrat writing, sometimes really after many years look back, wow, so he has such a value, this is far from saying.

Xin Jing Bao: You havent met Mr. Jin Yong, and he probably doesnt know your nickname, but how do you feel about your relationship with readers of Jin Yongs and Jin Yongs novels?

Liushen Leilei: It was fun when I started to write this name. I never thought about what it would be like to write, nor about how to interpret Jin Yongs novels. Maybe thats fate, so that I can get in touch with Mr. Jin Yong in this way, shamelessly.

Xin Jing Bao: Jin Yong has such a great influence on you as a post-70 generation. Do you think he will continue to influence our next generation or the next generation of youngsters?

Liushen Lei Lei: I think so. The way he reads will change. There wont be as many people reading his original works as before. They may watch more TV plays first, and then some of them are interested in the original and will read the original. But this is a normal phenomenon. After becoming a classic, there are not so many people reading it. For example, how many of us actually read A Dream of Red Mansions today, or how many of us have actually seen Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo today, right? Its unlikely that there will be a secondary school hand-book phenomenon again, but it doesnt matter, the classic exists in this way. Beijing News: so will you continue to talk about Jin Yong and Jin Yong in the future? Liushi Lei Lei: this does not affect. You can see that 1300 years after Du Fus death, thousands of later generations annotated Du, a thousand families are annotating his poems, Cao Xueqin left several hundred years, how many people are studying the Dream of Red Mansions. This does not affect. Source: Beijing News Editor: Qian Yue Xiao _NBJ10675
