Get To Know Hong Kong's Bright Young Things
Kadin Wong, 17
The son of actor Michael Wong and former model Janet Ma, Kadin has inherited his mum’s good looks and his dad’s famous charm. An aspiring bodybuilder, Kadin has a wardrobe full of Gymshark and claims to never skip leg day.
Cheryl Chan, 19
Adventurous, ambitious and analytical, Cheryl is pursuing a dual degree in computer science and economics at Brown University. If that challenging degree isn’t enough to persuade you that Cheryl is one smart cookie, she also excelled at her demanding summer internship at Microsoft. The daughter of Michelle Ma and Christopher Chan, the managing director of Fancl, it’s no wonder Cheryl has such flawless skin.

Like Ashlyn, Marissa is based in the US, where she attends the selective Massachusetts high school Northfield Mount Hermon. A fashion fanatic, Marissa makes everything look stylish from her chunky knits and oversized hoodies to her current obsession, denim jackets.
Nicholas Lo, 15
The son of TVB independent non-executive director William Lo and his wife, Josephine, Nicholas is a Kim Kardashian-obsessed fashion lover. He turned up to our photo shoot in a black Saint Laurent cape, telling us that the best fashion era was “the hippie era, duh,” and the worst mistake was “BAPE, in general.”
Jonathan Cheung, 17 (left)
Ever since he first kicked a ball, Jonathan has been obsessed with football. Now at boarding school in the UK, Jonathan trains day and night in the hope of following in the footsteps of his hero, the Argentinian soccer star Lionel Messi. Like the professional athletes he idolises—and his brother and sister—Jonathan loves to experiment with bold fashion choices when he’s off the pitch.
Jasmine Cheung, 20 (middle)
Currently a student at Northeastern University in Boston, where she’s studying international affairs with a minor in economics, Jasmine is an outdoors enthusiast and music lover. Like her brother Justin, Jasmine hopes to forge a career focused on making the world a better place. For now, though, she’s focusing on getting good grades.
Justin Cheung, 23 (right)
The eldest son of Cindy Yeung, chairperson of Emperor Watch and Jewellery, and film director Alfred Cheung, Justin is following in his father’s footsteps and recently graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he studied film. He’s now using his degree for good by directing Yaya, a documentary about the exploitation and abuse of domestic helpers in Hong Kong.
