On November 8, Sina TV revealed photos of the former EXO member posing on set. As you can see, Tao has made quite the transformation as the sword-wielding Monkey King. It's reported his makeup and prosthetics for the role takes at least 4 hours every time he films.

Tao said in a recent interview, "Though the special makeup is hard on me, I'm happy I get to play two roles."

The drama, a remake of the 2013 movie of the same name, entered filming this past July and is scheduled to premiere in December.

I'm pretty sure the monkey king is not a sword wielding monkey.

He isn't. Those pics are of someone else holding the sword against his neck and he's just touching the blade
