Simon Lui in Raped by an Angel 3 (1998) Simon Lui in All's Well, Ends Well '97 (1997) Simon Lui in The Cheaters (2001)

Simon Lui Yu-Yeung is trying to take over Hong Kong... well their entertainment industry anyways. Born in Hong Kong on July 8th, 1964, Lui spent time overseas in North America before returning home and becoming a DJ and an actor at TVB. He started acting in movies in 1991 and has been gradually spreading his creative tentacles ever since, composing music, writing scripts and starting his own production company, Buddy Film Creative Workshop Limited, in 2000.

All told, Lui has been in nearly 100 films (20 in just 1999), most of them low budget, forgettable fare. Some notable entries in his filmography are Play with Strangers (2000), Headlines (2001) and a documentary called How to Get Rich by Fung Shui (1998). Some of the films in which Lui acted and co-wrote are Killer (2000), Paramount Motel (2000), and Esprit D’Amour (2001). He also shared co-writing credits on The Replacement Suspects (2001), though the film was largely a rip-off of the American thriller Albino Alligator (1996).

Without a doubt, Lui has been a major player in the recent resurgence of Hong Kong horror films. He has come to be known as the Ghost King, thanks in large part to appearances in 11 of the 17 (and counting) Troublesome Night films. Appearing in numerous horror films, and penning a number of ghost novels, have made Lui as as identifiable with the supernatural as Helena Law Lan. (Yinique 2003)
