Hong Kong's very own revolutionary, Leung Kwok-hung, aka Long Hair, has recently been the star of a stage show entitled May Be Long Hair, May Be Ernesto Che Guevara, at the Hong Kong Arts Centre.

As the name implies, the play is Long Hair's homage to his hero, whose iconic image is always emblazoned across his T-shirts. Long Hair is seen chanting, singing off key (Power to the People by John Lennon), and protesting on stage - sometimes with his shirt off.

About his hero Che, Long Hair says: 'Che is a tragic hero, but I am just comedy. I am not a hero, I am just a revolutionary. I am just a dwarf on the shoulder of a giant.' Still unsure of the differences? Simply refer to this handy chart.
