Tommy Lu Chun-ku (aka Lu Chun) was born Wong Chun-yeung in Kinmen, Fujian, in 1946. He moved to Hong Kong in 1962 and was accepted into Cathay Organization’s actors training program in 1970, signing an actor’s contract the same year, taking the name Lu Chun. Cast in the company’s major production, the wuxia flick The Inn of the Goddess broke, the tall, brawny Lu was touted as the next leading man of the action genre. However, Cathay folded due to budgetary issues shortly after announcement of the production. Facing an uncertain future, Lu joined Yangtse Film Company, making well-received appearances in My Millionaire Sister (1971) and The Invincible Iron Palm (1971). In the following year, his leading performance in The Invasion (1972) garnered much positive reaction. His later turns in movies such as Blind Boxer (1972) and Stranger from Canton (1973) solidified his leading man status.

In 1972, Loo took his first step towards working behind the camera, moonlighting as assistant director. He co-directed Trail of the Dragon with Chan Lau in 1974 before directing Tough Guy (1974) on his own. He then changed his name to Tommy Lu Chun-ku and directed action films such as Prostitute Loves Police (1977), Stranger From Shaolin (1977), The Stowaways (1979) and The Dragon and the Tiger Kids (1979). In 1979, he joined Shaw Brothers and helmed wuxia flicks, including The Master (1980), Ambitious Kung Fu Girl (1981), The Lady Assassin (1983), Holy Flame of the Martial World (1983) and Bastard Swordsman (1983). Leaving Shaws when his contract ended in 1984, he reverted back to his birth name, Wong Chun-yeung, and directed contemporary action films such as The Haunted Madam (1986), Killing Angels (1989), Devil Hunters (1989), The Dragon Fighter (1990) and Fire Phoenix (1990).

Lu left the film industry in 2000.
