Derek Yee Tung-sing , born in 1957, is a former Shaw Brothers actor from Hong Kong, currently a film director and screenwriter. The youngest member of one of Hong Kong cinema’s most prominent families, the son of producer Yee Kwong and famed character actress Hung Wie. He is also the brother of stars David Chiang and Paul Chin Pei.

He joined his brothers at Shaw Brothers in 1975, and achieved stardom with his role in “Death Duel”. Yee has starred in over 40 movies in Hong Kong between 1975 and 1986, during the time when Shaw Brothers Studio were still producing movies. His face gorgeously suited the Wuxia genre, and he characterized many swordsmen who are young, handsome, but also highly gifted.

After Shaw Brothers Studio was closed, Yee turned to screenwriting and directing and has made a career out of making films like People’s Hero (1987) starring with Ti Lung, Protege (2007) starring with Andy Lau, and Shinjuku Incident (2009) starring with Jackie Chan.
