Among both Hong Kong and mainland showbiz circles, Yeung is far less to be an eye-catcher, so does her singing. Yet, her easygoing and happy nature proves to stand out all these "disadvantages" and builds herself a unique style of her own. Directors see her as the right person for playing a happy-go-lucky, somewhat careless girl, the kind of sweetie who, in spite of often making mistakes, still attracts an excellent man with her goodness.
2003 was a breakthrough for Yeung, as both her acting and singing made a great leap forward. She acted in a series of popular movies like Dry Wood Fierce Fire, My Lucky Star, Love Undercover I and II, Sound of Colors and Anna in Kungfu-land, all did pretty good at the box office. Her album also sold well.
At the traditional Chinese Lantern Festival, Yeung launches her hit again in
comedy Elixir of Love (Hua Hao yue Yuan). This time, the 30-year-old singer-actress is an ancient princess, who was born with a kind of odor that prevents her from finding a husband, despite her beauty and wealth. She stars with 'good man' Richie Xian Qi, who plays a spoony gardener. The two begin a touching love affair. The role is a big challenge for many female artists, as most of them take maintaining a beautiful image as a priority, but this is not a problem for Yeung, who never turns down a movie for such reason.
Yeung is also a safe partner for Hong Kong actors, as she was seldom linked romantically with them.
As for the year ahead, Yeung's agenda is fully booked. It is certain that she'll continue to bring us more laughter.
