A CNN article stated that she had been referred to as "China's answer to Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour."[3] Since early 2012, she has written a weekly column called ChinaFile for Women's Wear Daily.[4]

Hung's mother, Zhang Hanzhi[2] worked as a translator and English tutor for Mao Zedong.[3][5] Her mother and her father, Hong Junyan (洪君彦), divorced in 1973. Zhang then married Qiao Guanhua,[6] the Foreign Minister of the People's Republic of China in the 1970s.[5] Hung's mother was later accused of collaborating with the Gang of Four and was placed under house arrest for two years.[3] Hung attended Vassar College.[5] Hung married three times, all of them ended in divorce. Her first husband is the film director Chen Kaige. In 2006, Hung adopted a daughter from Sichuan.[7][8] Hung worked in factories until 1998, when she agreed to take over the publication of Look, a magazine that is now known as I-Look.[9]
