Happy birthday! Wong Kar-wai turns 59 today

The iconic and legendary director turns 59 on Monday, Jul. 17, 2017.

Wong Kar-wai is celebrating his 59th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed directors of his generation.

Popular director Wong Kar-wai (In the Mood for Love, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 59th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.

Wong, a cultural icon

Born in Shanghai on July 17, 1958, Wong Kar-wai's career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in history. Wong'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 Kar-wai hasn't done.

And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Wong Kar-wai as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 59.

Happy Birthday, Kar-wai, you're the best!
