Matthew Ko Kwan-yin (born 20 May 1984) is a Hong Kong actor.

At the age of seven, Matthew emigrated to Toronto, Ontario, Canada with his parents. He returned to Hong Kong in 2004 and worked as a model. In 2005, he became the first ever winner of Hong Kong's Mr. Hong Kong male beauty contest and subsequently signed a contract with TVB.[1] Ko speaks fluent English, French, Cantonese and Mandarin, despite immigrating to Toronto (which caused him to forget some, but after his return to Hong Kong he picked it up again).

In September 2014, Ko left TVB after his contract ended[2][3] to later sign with Catchy Tone Artists in Mainland China.[4]
