Sun Chung was born in 1940 in Taiwan and graduated from the Film Department of the Taiwan National College of Art, majoring in screenwriting and directing. After serving his mandatory military service, he entered the film industry to work as continuity person and assistant director at Taiwan’s Central Motion Picture Corporation. He served as assistant director on Recalling my Dreams (1967) and My Love for You (1968), both directed by Chou Hsu-chiang, as well as assistant on Home Sweet Home (1970), directed by Pai Ching-jui.

Sun made his directorial debut with Wild Girl (1968), a musical starring Chang Chi and Hsieh Lei. He followed with Master of the Trade (1970), which did well at the box office. At the invitation of Shaw Brothers, he came to Hong Kong, taking advantage of the studio’s resources to explore different film genres and subject matters. His first film under Shaw Brothers was the martial arts film, The Devil’s Mirror (1972). In the next decade he made more than 30 films encompassing different genres such as martial arts, police drama, satirical comedy and modern action. Important works include Cohabitation (1975), The Drug Connection (1976), Homicides-The Criminals, Part II (1976), Assault-The Criminals, Part IV (1977), The Avenging Eagle (1978), The Deadly Breaking Sword (1979), The Kung-Fu Instructor (1979), To Kill a Mastermind (1979) and Human Lanterns (1982).

He left Shaw Brothers in 1982 and directed A Fist Full of Talons (1983) for Eternal Film before taking the post of production manager for Silver Pheonix Company in 1985. His later output as a director included Lady in Black (1987), starring Brigitte Lin and Tony Leung Kar-fai, and City War (1988), starring Chow Yun-fat and Ti Lung. He withdrew from the industry in the 1990s.
