Patrick Kong was born in Hong Kong in 1975. He is a graduate of the history program at Hong Kong Baptist University. Since age 19, he had been writing film reviews and upon graduation, worked as a reporter.

He later become a screenwriter, making his debut with Love Amoeba Style (1997), followed by Portland Street Blues (1998), Loving Him (2002), My Lucky Star (2002), Dragon Loaded 2003 (2003), Men Suddenly in Black (2003) and Super Model (2004). His script for Men Suddenly in Black was nominated for Best Screenplay at the 40th Golden Horse Film Festival.

Kong made his directorial debut with the 2004 romantic comedy My Sweetie. Many of his films feature the love triangle, and he is best known for his romance trilogy - Marriage with a Fool (2006), Love is Not All Around (2007) and L For Love, L For Lies (2008) - which he wrote and directed. The three hits made a total of over HK$35 million at the box office. Commercial success was coupled with critical acclaim when Kong won Best New Director at the 26th Hong Kong Film Awards for Marriage with a Fool.

Entering film at a time of industry decline, Kong had been able to maintain a successful, steady career. His other notable films include Nobody’s Perfect (2008), Marriage with a Liar (2010) and Mr. & Mrs. Single (2011). In addition to romantic comedies, he had also forayed into other genres, such as the 2008 horrorthemed Forgive and Forget. His recent films, A Secret Between Us (2013) and The Best Plan is No Plan (2013), are headlined by young new actors. Besides filmmaking, Kong is also the author of several collections of short stories and a book on his filmmaking thoughts.
