The Tsui Hark directed FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE (LUNG MOON FEI GAP) will be released in Christmas but the costumes of key actors like Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit), Zhou Xun, Chris Lee Yuchun, Kwai Lun-Mei have already been unveiled.  Chen Kun's "the prettiest and the most vicious" Yu Huatian finally showed his true face.  In his flowing white costume he looked rather elegant.

Chen Kun played the villain Yu Huatian in rather extravagant costumes.  The simple looking white costume was made with Thai silk and hidden embroidery.  Chen Kun also had the most costumes among the cast, the most extravagant of which exceeded any female character's.  In addition he not only had many costumes but also luck with the ladies.  Basically every woman in the film including Zhou Xun, Lee Yuchun, Kwai Lun-Mei, Mavis Fan Hiu Huen and Zhang Xinyu all had connections to him.  Chen Kun joked, "During the shoot because of the numerous pretty costumes the female leads often ganged up on me and thought I had enough for a solo fashion show."  Reportedly this white scholar look mainly was used in the desert battle with Lee Nin Kit.  Because the shoot took place in the chilly winter, the costume material was excessive high class and light, under the category 7 northern wind in the desert and the wind machine, Chen Kun was shivering.
