Born in 1957 in Hong Kong, Wong had studied at St. Paul's Convent School. Thereafter, he majored in Communications at Baptist College, but dropped out before completion and took up the post as a TV copywriter. In 1972, he worked as a writer for magazines and newspapers. In 1977, he became a scriptwriter at RTV and was involved in several drama series such as Reincarnated and Dragon Strike. He entered the film industry in 1979, working in the creative side of production.

In 1995 he formed a partnership with director-cinematographer Andrew Lau and writer-producer-director Wong Jing to establish BoB and Partners Co. Ltd., the creative team most noted for its creation of the very successful Young and Dangerous which established box-office-record-breaking success. The 'BoB' stands for "Best of the Best."
