Family background[edit]

Hui comes from an influential family in Canton. His great-grandfather was a godson of Empress Dowager Cixi and served as an imperial official during the late Qing Dynasty. Hui's grandaunt, Xu Guangping (Cantonese: Hui Kwong-ping), was married to the writer Lu Xun. His granduncle Xu Chongzhi (Cantonese: Hui Chung-chi) was a founder of the Whampoa Military Academy, while his another granduncle Xu Chongqing (Cantonese: Hui Chung-ching) once served as an education minister of Canton. His name "Benz" was inspired by "Mercedes-Benz", as he was the first ATV actor to drive a Mercedes-Benz to work.

Hui has starred in many notable roles, including the part of Inspector Wong in Running Out of Time in 1999.
