Wyman Wong in The Lion Roars (2002) Wyman Wong in United we Stand and Swim (2001)
Wyman Wong Wai-Man was born on May 21, 1969. In the early nineties he somehow ended up as a DJ after going to HK Commercial Radio headquarters to pick up a prize he won through a radio contest. That became his full-time job until he officially left the radio station in 1998. Sometime during his stint as a DJ, Wong started writing song lyrics and appearing in films. He’s taken some rather quirky movie roles over the years, like the “Foster Mother” to Sammi Cheng in Killing Me Tenderly (1997), and was more recently cast as Cecilia Cheung’s traditional older brother in The Lion Roars (2002). In addition, he had a small cameo in Tsui Hark’s Knock Off (1998) and the HKMDB lists him as one of the co-writers for Sleeping With the Dead (2002).

But while Wong's film roles are generally of a comedic nature, his best song lyrics are about raw emotion and heartbreak. They range from cheeky and unconventional, like Tat Ming Pair’s “A Forbidden Fruit a Day”, to desperately sad and fragile, like Candy Lo’s “Garbage”. His landmark work is likely Amanda Lee’s “(You Will Not Have) A Happy Ending”, a scathing and violent song to an ex-lover punctuated with the image of a dagger through the heart. The song put both Wong and Lee onto the musical map and he’s since become one of the most prolific and popular HK lyricists behind Lin Xi (AKA: Lam Jik). (Yinique 2003)
