Elkie Chong: From Hong Kong Child Actress to K-pop Star

Lately, classic TVB medical drama The Hippocratic Crush II <On Call 36小時 II> is being re-broadcasted late at night. In addition to goddesses Tracy Chu (朱千雪), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), and Mandy Wong (黃智雯) attracting viewers, Elkie Chong (莊錠欣), who played Lawrence Ng‘s (吳啟華) daughter in the series, is also a huge draw. Elkie went on to become a member of the Korean girl group CLC after the show finished airing in 2013.

At the time, Elkie was only 15-years-old when she played Lawrence’s arrogant and spoiled daughter, Yannis, who suffers from heart disease. Despite her young age, she acted naturally and successfully portrayed her role well. Even costar Kenneth Ma (馬國明) praised her dexterity and diligence.

Elkie also has a good relationship with the actors in the series. Earlier this year in January, she met up with Tracy, who starred as Lawrence’s love interest in The Hippocratic Crush II. Tracy couldn’t help but shower the former child actress with praises. She expressed with happiness, “Though she has grown up, she maintained her modesty, kindness, and talent while pursuing her dream. I’m so proud of her!”

Currently, the 21-year-old Elkie is becoming even more beautiful. She is no longer the little child actress with the round face. In addition to the changes in her appearance, Elkie also made developments in her career. In 2015, she became a trainee of a Korean entertainment company before joining and debuting as a member of CLC in 2016.

On top of being CLC’s lead singer, Elkie recently participated in her first Korean drama The Rich Son <富家公子>, which won her many fans. She is the first Hong Kong person to have such a heavy role in a Korean drama. Elkie once said that the feeling of being on stage is the biggest reason she is pursuing an entertainment career, so her current achievements stem from her love for the stage. It can be said that she is the glory of Hong Kong.

        Yes she speaks Korean. She also speaks Mandarin really well. I saw her in the Chinese drama, A Little Thing Called First Love, but she doesn’t play a big part in there.

          @oktang she sounds like a smart girl who can learn more languages than her own. Unlike others only wanted to speak their own language that’s it. I know some Chinese people who lived in the United States for many years but still don’t know any English at all I’m thinking they’re lazy to learn it or just don’t want to learn it either way.

        @joyce yes, it definitely looks like she had a nose job. Its so much straighter and thinner! Very Korean style nose-job. guess she has to do it to keep up with being a K-pop star.
