On his travels he accidentally frees Wukong and the Monkey King learns from the Mercy Goddess (Kelly Chen) that he has to accompany and protect the monk on the journey. In addition, a golden hoop is embedded onto Wukong’s forehead that Sanzang can use to subdue his will by chanting a special incantation.
