About Ekin

Ekin was born on October 4th, 1967 in Hong Kong. His parents named him Yee Kin. "Kin" means "healthy" in Chinese and his family's wish was that he would always be healthy. Yee Kin is indeed healthy and very fit, although he does wear contact lenses. He is the middle child, as he has an older brother and a younger sister. His father had to work very hard to support the family and Ekin still admires him greatly for the sacrifices he made.

Ekin started in commercials while he was still in high school. After graduating he participated in a singing contest. Although he didn't win, he did attract notice, and soon after enrolled in TVB's Martial Arts School. He didn't enjoy martial arts, so he switched to the Acting School, which would turn out to be a good move. Ekin was soon cast in a number of TVB productions.

Ekin made his first movie "Girls Without Tomorrow" in 1992. He made several romantic comedies before being cast as Chan Ho Nam in the highly successful Young and Dangerous movies, which propelled Ekin to super-stardom.

Ekin has experienced a lot of pressure from the Hong Kong press. They have torn apart every facet of his life. He has only been the subject of one major news story, however, when he left Maggie Sui for Gigi Leung Wing Kei. Ekin told reporters that he was an ordinary guy who had fallen out of love with one person and in love with an another. He has since broken up with Gigi. More recently, he was stalked and secretly filmed by a weekly magazine, the resulting rumors and gossip have caused him to be extremely angry and resentful of the press.
