Is one of the rare HK performers who have a more loyal following in Japan than in his native Hong Kong. Thus the many Japan/HK co-productions in his work (The Setting Sun 1992, Bakayaro! 1991, No Problem 2 2002.) For the Kung Fu-soccer comedy The Champions (1983), he was promoted as a wholesome, super-athlete version of Japan's pop idol culture. As the norm for idols in Japan, Yuen released several music albums despite his rudimentary grasp on Japanese and pop music. Documented as recently as 2004, Yuen still makes the occasional personalized replies to his Japanese fans.
Longtime friend of Jackie Chan (Rush Hour (1998)) and Sammo Kam-Bo Hung (Martial Law (1998)).
Biao has worn spectacles since adolescence. Although in most movies he does not not wear spectacles he can be seen wearing his own pairs in Wheels on Meals (19834), Mr Vampire 2 (1986), and Hunted Hunter (1997).
Introduced nephew Edmond Fung Yuen-Man to film production. Fung has now directed Futago (2005).
