Wong Cho-keung (15 March 1952 – 5 April 2017), better known by his pen name Wong Yee or Wong On, was a HongKonger writer of martial arts heroes and science fiction novels. He graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and once worked as the Assistant Chairperson of Hong Kong Museum of Art. Apart from his literary endeavors, he was also a painter and a musician who played the piano and the guqin.
In the 1990s, after its golden age, martial arts heroes fiction was increasingly under attack by the general public and was losing its previous aura. However, the emergence of Wong infused new life into the martial arts heroes genre.
Wong has combined science fiction with traditional Chinese culture (metaphysics, philosophy, etc.) to create a new style of work. Currently, his popularity has resulted in some people describing this phenomenon as flurry of Huang sweeping through China.
Upon conclusion of his longest novel, Datang Shuanglong Zhuan, Wong has commented that he would like to follow in the footstep of Louis Cha and to revise and improve his released novels.
There are some Hong Kong television series adapted from Wong's novels, such as A Step Into The Past (2001), Twin of Brothers (2004) and Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion (2006).
Wong's works give readers a sense of modernity. The vivid text and the bright rhythm make the plot appear like a dynamic picture, which appears in the reader's mind, making people look like their own experience. As a master, he increased his life and death to the height of "Tao", and integrated justice and evil into his philosophical theory, and expounded his views on all things in the world with the language of philosophical charm and the thought of all things. What really gives these novels the soul is the most Chinese philosophy and traditional culture. He has a very extensive experience in art, astronomy, history, metaphysics, and the number of five lines of art. He is able to study the Zhouyi, the Buddhist theory and the ideas of each family, so that he can still run the traditional spirit of Chinese swordsman when he manages the creative subjects and characters.
Wong died in Hong Kong on 5 April 2017 from a stroke while in hospital at the age of 65.
