    Default Guo Jing after meeting Yideng

    It was stated that Guo Jing shaved his head to disguise himself as Yideng when Yinggu came to attack.
    So, did he wear a wig after that? Did he roam jiang hu with his shiny scalp? Huang Rong must have thought he looked ridiculous. Furthermore, I'm pretty sure the novel art that appears at the beginning of each chapter showed Guo Jing with a full head of hair.

    The next thing that happened after the encounter with 1 Deng was the deaths of the Gong Nam 5 Freaks, wasn't it? Wasn't there a gap of time between those two events for Gwok Jing and Wong Yung to travel between where they had encountered 1 Deng and where they met with Ohr Jen Ngok and learned about the 5 Freaks' grisly fate? Perhaps he grew his hair back during the long journey.

    Didn't this happen to Linghu Chong too? I remembered he got his hair shaved off by Yilin's mom because she wanted him to marry her daughter (Read this in the translations). Adaptations seem to remove the parts when our protagonists' heads get shaved because that would be very unappealing.

    true it wouldn't be appealing to the actors as well i mean how long would it take to get your hair back after that????? and it would be unconventional when they are not acting.

    Not exactly. HR sent the eagles to Peach Blossom Island to collect 2 Jin Hua Hua for her. A few days later she gets a reply that there is trouble brewing. At this time, the 6 Freaks had just came to Peach Blossom Island, followed by the Quan Zhen 6 and OYF. HYS not wanting to deal with their miserable yapping leaves on a boat and sends a note back to HR written on a rag from his robe.
    Imeddiately following this, the QZ6 followed HYS while OYF and YK conducted wholesale murder on the 6 freaks.

    As soon as HR and GJ left Yidengs residence, they immediately returned to Peach Blossom Island. One of GJ's masters was still alive at the time before finally expiring.

    So it can still be inferred that not much time has passed since then. Furthermore, it would take atleast a year to grow hair to the length that it can be worn in the fashion that they had at the time.
    It was immediately following this incident
