Louis Cha (1924-2018), the founding editor of Ming Pao Daily, and chair of Ming Pao Group, was Hong Kong’s foremost newsman and media magnate. Under the pen name Jin Yong, he became China’s most beloved author of kung-fu fiction. His Ming Pao editorials criticized China’s Communist Party under Mao Zedong; later, he pivoted towards Deng Xiaoping to participate in drafting terms for Hong Kong’s 1997 handover.

 

Nick Frisch conducted Cha’s final interview, for the New Yorker, and discussed his interlaced legacies in media, politics, and literature.
