General Monkey is the embodiment of "Sibilmyeonbosal," a Buddhist saint with 11 faces. "Sibilmyeonbosal" has 11 different faces to be able to correspond flawlessly with the many gods that come to see the Buddha Amitabha. The sad face helps comfort the sad and the smiling one helps the happy to share their joy. "Sibilmyeonbosal" is a warm-hearted and amicable god. "Sibilmyeonbosal" came down to Earth and was able to truly understand and learn about the human heart by mimicking people's facial expressions using thousands of faces.
