Derek Yee is celebrating his 62nd birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed directors of his generation.
Popular director-screenwriter Derek Yee (Shinjuku Incident, Protégé, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 62nd birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Yee, a cultural icon
Born in Hong Kong on December 28, 1957, Derek Yee's career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in history. Yee's not just a great director, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Derek hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Derek Yee as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 62.
Happy Birthday, Derek, you're the best!
