Mr. Xu Mingzhong, a rice dumplings master, has played Ba Jia Jiang since he was 12 years old. He is the most famous performer in Taiwan. Mr. Xu is good at playing the pioneer of the torture of the eight generals. The character is wearing a hat with a ghost king painted face. His shoulder carries with various torture tools. There are handcuffs, shackles, knives, axes, sometimes up to dozens of punishment equipment. In the role, Mr. Xu looks majestic with serious eyes. In the folk custom trampling on the streets and temple fairs, the cannons are like gods touring in the human world.
