                                                                              (Cheng Yee Kin, Cheng Yi Kin, Dior Cheng, Noodle Cheng)  

                                                                                                                Actor, Singer

                    Born:  October 4, 1967


                                              Ekin Cheng Yee Kin is one of Hong Kong's most popular entertainers.

                                   He started his career by enrolling in TVB's Artists Training Course, and began co-hosting

                                    the children's program Shuttle 430. It wasn't long before he was starring in highly rated 

                                      dramas. Ekin made his film debut as a nerdy virgin who falls for Carina Lau in Girls 

                                  Without Tomorrow (1992). He soon signed with BMG records and launched a successful 

                                               singing career, continuing to act as he developed his growing idol status.


                                In 1996 Ekin starred as triad member Chan Ho Nam in the smash hit Young & Dangerous.

                                    The movie spawned four other sequels in which he starred, and led to other heroic lead

                                 roles in high profile action pictures such as The Legend of Speed, A Man Called Hero 

                                  and The Stormriders. His films are frequently tied in with current fads in popular culture-

                                      video games, comics, and other trends which tend to appeal to younger audiences.           

                                  Working in high budget releases for filmmakers like Andrew Lau, Jingle Ma and Wong 

                                     Jing, Ekin came to be one of HK's most purely commercial actors, a position which    

                                                        has won him few awards, but many fans all throughout Asia. 


                                   Though his well publicized breakup with actress Maggie Siu hurt his image temporarily,

                                      Ekin has kept a positive relationship with the public. Ever the good guy, Ekin played

                                        the flashy, mustached villain in Johnnie To's Running Out of Time 2 (2002) for a

                                       change in character. With recent roles in big budget action films The Twins Effect 

                                             and Heroic Duo, Ekin's commercial success shows no signs of waning.
