Early life

Pang was born in Hong Kong in 1973. At the age of 15, he started using a video camera to direct short films with his elder brother.[1]

After graduating from high school, he studied abroad in Taiwan for half a year, before returning to Hong Kong where he worked for Hong Kong Asian Television Limited as a gag show writer. He later wrote his first novel, and served as a columnist for various newspapers and magazines.[1]


In 1997, at the age of 24, Pang began 18 months of research for his first novel, "Fulltime Killer". The novel went on to become extremely popular, selling more than 100,000 copies in Hong Kong. It was then reworked as a radio program and later adapted into a feature film in 2001.[1]

While Pang was still a television and radio host, he decided to fulfil his dream of being a film director. Pang directed the horror film, Ghost, which featured in the Tribeca Film Festival 2010.[2]

Muse Magazine film critic Perry Lam has praised Pang for 'often demonstrat[ing] a Kafkaesque talent for seeing the absurd in the mundane realities of everyday life.'[3]

His feature film Love in the Buff opened the 36th Hong Kong International Film Festival, in March 2012. The film is a sequel to the successful romance Love in a Puff. Both star Miriam Yeung Chin-wah and Shawn Yue Man-lok.[4]
