Directing one film does not mean you are qualified to be a director forever. A director is always searching for a balance between his own interests and that of the market.

Lee Kung-lok was born in Hong Kong in 1970 and studiedpainting at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1991. He entered the film industry in 1996 when he was introduced by friends to work continuity on the Stephen Chow comedy Lawyer Lawyer (1997). He began serving as assistant director in 1999 but as the film industry continued to slump, he switched to television, working as production assistant. He also produced “making-of” features for the productions of the film company China Star, where he met fellow “making of” helmer Wong Ching-po.
Lee partnered with Wong to form Red Flag Production and produced the independent film Fu Bo (2003), which they codirected. The film, which dealt with issues of life and death through the work of a morgue assistant, received positive reviews and was shown in many international film festivals. He then co-directed with Daniel Yu All About Love (2005), which did well at the box office.
In 2006, Lee was invited by Andy Lau to take part in the FOCUS: First Cuts program, directing his first solo effort My Mother is a Belly Dancer (2006), about a housewife who dared to pursue her dreams. He then went to Beijing to direct the urban romantic comedy My Ex-Wife’s Wedding (2010), which was adapted from a best-selling novel. The next year, he adapted actorplaywright Jim Chim’s stage play MicroSex Office (2011) to film, co-directing it with Chim. Lee’s latest directorial effort is the 2013 Category 3 production Naked Ambition 2 (2014).
