 Biography

Fong Chiung graduated from the urban and environment planning department at the Chinese Culture University in Taiwan. His wife is the eldest daughter of director Li Han-hsiang. He came to Hong Kong in 1974 to work in the film industry. For a time he served as Li Han-hsiang’s producer, continuity person and assistant director, and also learned about editing. He later worked under other directors including Chu Mu, Kuei Chih-hung, Hua Shan, Wong Fung and Law Kei.

In 1975, he went back to Taiwan to direct the Remembrance, starring Judy Ongg, and then wrote the screenplay to The Rising Sun in Storm (1977). After co-directing The Fearless Duo with Joseph Kuo, Fong made a series of martial arts films, such as The Rebellious Reign (1980). His 1981 works The King and the Eunuch (co-written with Li) and The Clan of Righteousness both brought in over NT$10 million at the box office. After collaborating with Tianshan Film Studio on the martial arts film Orders from Forbidden City (1987), which was shot on location on the Silk Road, Fong withdrew from film.
