Fong Sai-yuk

Fong Sai-yuk
Chinese 方世玉

Fong Sai-yuk or Fang Shiyu was a (possibly fictional) Chinese martial artist and folk hero from Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province. He was first mentioned in wuxia stories dating from the Qing dynasty (1644–1912), such as Shaolin Xiao Yingxiong (少林小英雄; Young Hero of Shaolin), Wan Nian Qing (萬年青) and Qianlong You Jiangnan (乾隆游江南; The Qianlong Emperor Visits Jiangnan). His father, Fong Tak (方德; Fang De), was a wealthy merchant, while his mother, Miu Tsui-fa (苗翠花; Miao Cuihua), was a martial arts expert. Fong was also associated with Hung Hei-gun and the Five Elders of the Southern Shaolin Monastery.

Stories about Fong have been adapted into films and television series since the 1970s. The most notable ones are the 1993 Hong Kong film Fong Sai-yuk and its sequel, which starred Jet Li.
