The world's hairiest man is to undergo plastic surgery after failing to win a part in a television drama.

Yu Zhenghuan, 32, has 96% of his body covered with a thick layer of black hair, reports Zhejiang Online.

He was confident of landing a lead role in a production of Chinese classic Journey to the West which tells how a monkey helps his Buddhist master.

"I thought I was the best candidate, as I look like a monkey and my nickname is Monkey Man," said Yu.

"I read through the book and found professional hair dressers to make me into a real monkey man. But I failed the audition because I am not good looking enough.

"I am going to have surgery to get rid of the hair and facial plastic surgery to make myself look more like a pretty monkey, and let the director regret his decision."

Zheng Quan, president of the hospital, said Yu probably suffered from hirsutism, a disease caused by a hormonal imbalance.

He says that it will take three to five sessions of treatment to remove Yu's body hair, then a course of plastic surgery to enlarge his eyes, and reduce the size of his nose and lips.

Yu first found fame aged just seven when he was a child star in a movie entitled Monkey Boy's Treasure Safari.

"I love acting but a lot of people believe I only got success because of my thick hair, which is not true. I just want to prove to them that I have talent and I don't need this hair to be someone," he said.
