Mat Yeung Ming (born 27 February 1981) is a Hong Kong television actor best known for his roles as Lui Ting in Screen Play (2000), as Wan Po-yu in The 'W' Files (2003), as Tin Hoi in Be Home for Dinner (2011), and as Senior Inspector Jasper Kong in Master of Play (2012).

Career[edit]

In September 1998, Yeung signed a management contract with TVB after graduating from the company's 17th Artiste Training Class. He was given his first major role in the comedy-drama serial Screen Play (2000), where he portrayed Lui Ting, a character based on Nicholas Tse. Yeung was pushed by his company to compete in the male beauty pageant Mister World in 2000, and was misplaced. Yeung returned to Hong Kong and played a few more minor roles afterwards, before winning another major role in youth drama Aqua Heroes and mystery/adventure drama The 'W' Files, both which aired in 2003.

In 2005, his career was interrupted when Yeung was arrested for DUI and criminal damage.[1] He was sentenced to 150 hours of community service,[2] and became the first TVB actor having to retake acting classes again.[1] To make ends meet, Yeung opened a clothing retail store in Mong Kok, Hong Kong in 2006, but the store closed down within a year of business. He tried another business with selling Chinese mitten crab, but the business went bankrupt within three months.[1]

In 2011, Yeung's career was revived after a successful portrayal of Tin Hoi in the sitcom Be Home for Dinner. He was nominated for Most Improved Male Artiste at the 2011 TVB Anniversary Awards.
