Yeung is another successful singer-turned-actress in 2000s. She started her movie career in 1998 and a lot of her movies did well in the box office. She has been nominated "Best Actress" in the Golden Horse Awards and currently in a race to win "Best Actress" of this year's Hong Kong Film Awards, which will be held on April 17.
