Early life

Keung is the oldest son in his family, being the elder brother of two younger sisters and a younger brother. His father was already separated from his mother before he was born and thus, he has never met his father. Keung's mother was later remarried to a Chung (鍾) surnamed decorator contractor. Because his mother suffered from illness and his adopted father was busy with work at the same time, his younger siblings were sent to a children's home. When Keung was 14 years old, his mother died from her illness and he was sent to the Holland Hostel operated by the Hong Kong Student Aid Society in Kwun Tong. Keung had previously attended many primary schools, ranging from North Point to Kwun Tong. Later, he was enrolled in the Delia Memorial School (Yuet Wah).[1]


While attending secondary school, Keung starting working in a number of odd jobs such as a dim sum waiter at the China Restaurant, a decorator and an acrobat performer. He later became an extra actor since his girlfriend at that time worked in an extra actors' agency. In 1986, Keung signed up for Asia Television's (ATV) first Mr. Television Competition (電視先生選舉), where he won second place as well as the title of "Mr. Talent" (才華先生) and subsequently became a contracted artiste for ATV.[2]

Keung received praises for his satirical portrayal of LegCo member Leung Kwok-hung in ATV's political parody program, Hong Kong Gossip. However, since the audience viewership for ATV has been low, most local audiences only began noticing him after he left ATV in 2010 and began appearing in high-profile films such as Beast Stalker (2008), The Stool Pigeon (2010) and Life Without Principle (2011), for which he was nominated for the Chinese Film Media Awards for Best Supporting Actor.

In recent years, Keung has become one of Hong Kong's most prolific film actors, appearing in over 40 films between 2013 and 2018, playing major supporting roles in many high-profile films such as Firestorm, Unbeatable, Little Big Master, Two Thumbs Up and Trivisa, for which he was nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Supporting Actor and Hong Kong Film Critics Society Award for Best Actor.

In 2017, Keung won the Best Supporting Actor Award at the 1st Profima International Film Fest & Awards in Malaysia for his performance in the action film Shock Wave, winning his first acting award in his career.[3] At the 37th Hong Kong Film Awards, Keung was once again awarded Best Supporting Actor for his role in Shock Wave, while being nominated in the same category for his performance in the film, Concerto of the Bully.

Keung landed the leading role in two of his upcoming films, Tracey and Remember What I Forgot, which were promoted at the 2018 Hong Kong International Film & TV Market (FILMART), which ran from 19 to 22 March 2018. In the former, Keung plays a 51-year-old married man and father whose craving for feminization increases, while playing a Hong Kong film fanatic who suffers from brain degeneration in the latter.[4]

Personal life

In 1999, Keung married former ATV actress, Anna Kam (殷寧).[5]

His wife is known as Kappy King. She competed in the Miss ATV Pageant and was voted as Miss Congeniality.
