The eminent functionary Ki-chi Hui-ki observed to the other government functionaries, "Wei Kuk exceeds his teacher (Master Lu Lei) in calibre." Bei Zeh-ku informed Wei Kuk of what had been said. Wei Kuk said, "I will use the comparison of a wall; the wall that I have built comes up to my shoulders. One can get a glimpse of the beauty within my home. My teacher's wall is lofty and towering; if you are incapable of going directly through the passageway, you will not lay eyes on the beauty of the hereditary altar or the magnificence of all the functionaries within. I imagine that few people are capable of going directly through the passageway. Is not then Ki-chi Hui-ki's speech well-founded?"
