People only know two things about Vincent Wong’s (王浩信) family background—he’s married to the gorgeous Yoyo Chen (陳自瑤) and they have an eight-year-old daughter, Kiu (王靖喬). Not much, however, is known about the TV King’s own family background, until a recent paparazzi report decided to reveal it all in one summary.
Born in Xinjiang, Vincent’s father is Han Chinese and his mother is Uyghur. According to reports, his mother was known for her beauty in her youth. Both of his parents were business owners with good family backgrounds when they lived in Xinjiang. Vincent and his younger brother, Tony Wong (王瑋彤), also had a comfortable childhood. Their parents had the money to send them overseas for school. When Vincent turned 15 years old, his family’s business turned for the worse, prompting Vincent to forgo his education overseas to return home with his family. They then immigrated to Hong Kong for better opportunities. Vincent’s mother started working in the insurance industry, and thrived. She became part of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), a trade association for insurance brokers and financial advisors.
Like Vincent, his younger brother Tony is also in the entertainment industry. Though Tony majored in business, he was adamant to not fall into the wormhole of 9-5 jobs. After his college graduation in the United States, he returned to Hong Kong and auditioned for TVB’s artiste training class in 2015. He was not selected. In 2016, Tony auditioned for Mr. Hong Kong, and was regarded as a popular candidate due to his similarities with Vincent, but had to step down from competing following a kidney stone diagnosis.
Tony, however, persisted on a career in entertainment. After his recovery, he signed with ViuTV as a contracted artiste, officially pursuing his career in acting and performing.
