Janice Man (born December 29, 1988), also known as JM is a fashion model and actress from Hong Kong.

Career[edit]

Janice Man was discovered by model seekers on the streets when she was 14. Because of this she entered the modeling world at the age of only 14. Her modeling career took a sharp upwards turn in 2007 when she participated in television series such as <<過渡青春>> and movies like Love Is Not All Around. In 2009, August 13, it was announced she signed the contract with Leon Lai's star artist management, A-Music. She later appeared in Hong Kong's Asia Exhibit, Summer Pop Live in HK, and other live concerts. Her fame rose steadily in Asia as she cooperated with Korean Movie Star, Kim Jae Wook, and also shot commercials for Japan's Beauty Warehouse Company, Opaque.

She played one of the four main characters in the 2009 film Basic Love along with Elanne Kong, Rex Ho (何浚尉), and Izz Xu (徐正曦); she reportedly became good friends with Kong during the course of the filming.[1]

In 2011, she won the 30th Hong Kong Film Awards for Best Dressed.

Her more recent accomplishments show a slow but steady turn to more film work, with a critically acclaimed performance in Nightfall in 2012, starring along Simon Yam and Michael Wong.
