Hong Kong actress, singer and film director Charlie Young initially received recognition for appearing in a jewellery commercial with Aaron Kwok. Since then she has participated in the music videos of artists such as Hacken Lee, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Jacky Cheung and made a number of films. In 1994, Yeung made her first collaboration with director Tsui Hark in the film 'The Lovers', for which her performance received widespread critical acclaim and catapulted her into stardom.
Between 1994 and 1997, she was arguably the most popular artist in Hong Kong with major endorsement offers and movie roles. At the height of her popularity in 1997, she called it quits and retired from the industry to start an image consultant business with her Singaporean lawyer-boyfriend in Malaysia.
In 2004, after a failed relationship and business, she made her comeback as the lead actress in Jackie Chan's New Police Story, following which she collaborated with Tsui Hark in the martial arts movie 'Seven Swords' alongside Andy Lau. She has also actively involved herself in several social service ventures with her friends Valen Hsu, Gigi Leung and Angelica Lee, as they formed "Hope Foundation", a non-profit organization to help children in need, and later formed "Save-a-Smile".
