At that time, he was fascinated with the popular puppet shows on television. Hence, he has determined to learn, promote and spread this traditional culture and founded Jin Yu Yuan Puppet Theatre in 2008. He has applied the computer animation technique in the photo studio in addition modern laser technology, Sichuan face-changing, marionette flying stunts to the open-field shows and recreated large-scale wooden puppets shows.
