China’s legendary kung-fu master Wong Fei-hung (who lived between 1847–1924) was brought to life during Comic Fiesta 2017 with the cosplay by 27-year old Justin Wong.

The large crowds that were with Justin all the way were amazed at how well he, dressed in traditional Chinese garments, brought the character to life showing off his breath-taking kungfu stretches and moves to Wong Fei-hung classic theme song titled “A Man Should Better Himself” played loudly on a recorder.

The kungfu master practitioner said he always admired Wong Fei-hung and his kung fu since growing up as a kid.

“I have always liked kung fu since I was a 5-year-old kid. I grew up watching all the Wong Fei-hung martial arts movies. I fell in love and started practicing the fighting styles practiced by Wong Fei-hung. So when I heard about the ACG event, I knew I had to cosplay it,” Justin told Citizen Journalist Malaysia (CJMY).

Justin said he has been regularly keeping up his king fu practice as much as he can to train his mind, body and maintain discipline.
