Learn Chinese in China


need help in finding this folktale

Recommended Posts


I am looking for a folktale that I heard long time back. There was an very ugly looking king who never left his palace. Then a mask maker made a very handsome mask for him wearing which the king started going out. But the mask maker became greedy and started blackmailing the king for money or he will reveal the secret to the world. Once king was outside and the greedy mask maker snatched out the mask from the king's face, but now the king became handsome from the outside as he felt handsome from the inside. 

The actual story is quite interesting, but i only remember this much from what i heard. Could it be possible for you to help me in finding this folk tale.
