Jing Yong’s fault ~ 金庸的错

A variety show hosted by popular Taiwanese host Zhang Xiao Yan.

One of the questions was as follows: Multiple Choice Question. Gunpowder is discovered by Taoist priests while practicing alchemy. May I know when did we start having fireworks?

Me: Song Dynasty!
Uncle: As if you know the answer that well. Are you sure it date back that long?! Shouldn’t it be nearer, like Qing Dynasty or something?

Me: Song Dynasty! Because I remembered that in Jin Yong’s Return of the Condor Heroes, Yang Guo had arranged a firework performance during the Beggers’ meeting at Xiang Yang City to celebrate Guo Xiang’s birthday! If this is the wrong answer, then it is Jin Yong’s fault!
