Vincent Ng Cheng Hye (born 6 December 1975), also known as Weng Qinghai, is a Singaporean martial artist and former actor. He is best known for acting in Chinese-language television series produced by MediaCorp Channel 8.

Acting career[edit]

Ng joined MediaCorp after reaching the finals of Star Search Singapore in 1997. His first foray into English-language television was in the 2002 Channel 5 series Heartlanders in which he played one of the lead characters. As he was one of few artistes with any formal training in martial arts, he was frequently cast in period and wuxia television series or as characters requiring fight scenes. He left MediaCorp in November 2007 to concentrate on running Wufang.[1][2]

Martial arts career[edit]

After obtaining a certificate in engineering from a Singaporean institute of technical education (ITE), Ng competed in and won the 1995 World Wushu Championships (USA).[3] He continued to juggle martial arts with acting commitments even after signing with MediaCorp full-time. In 2004, he founded Wufang Singapore, a martial arts school.[4][5] He choreographed and performed the 2006 National Day Parade martial arts display. He published and released his first exercise and fitness book, TEN.[6]

In 2011, Ng was nominated for the Spirit of Enterprise Award in recognition for his work in wushu training.[7]
