The show Remove the Combat Vest was selected from a show of the legendary story entitled Tablet of the Crowded Bed, which depicts the story of Great General Kuo Tzu-i. When Kuo Tzu-i returned to the city of the emperor after suppressing the An Shi Rebellion, the emperor intended to help remove Kuo Tzu-i’s combat vest in the presence of all the officials in the palace to show commendation for Kuo Tzu-i’s glorious feat. After encountering several refusals from Kuo Tzu-i, the emperor finally assigned Li Bai and Gong Jing to remove Kuo Tzu-i’s combat vest on his behalf.
