The Jing Roles

The Jing Roles

Only "painted face", or jing, usually has facial makeup. They are all male with a rough, bold and uninhibited character. They speak loudly, shout at the slightest provocation and, if irritated, may use force.

The jing roles are divided, too, into the "Singing-oriented" type, or wen jing, and the “martial” type, or wu jing.

Actors impersonating jing commonly paint their faces in various styles that range from a single color to bewildering combinations and patterns.
