Biography

Suen Yueh was born in 1930 in Mukden, Manchuria. A year later, his hometown was already under the rule of the Japanese, marked by monstrous Fascist cruelty. His mother died 18 days after he was born and it was his stepmother who saved his life in WWII. After the war, he joined the Nationalist army in 1948, enlisted in the 208th division (a tank division) and went to Taiwan in 1949. In the 1950s, he started his acting career in the Army theatre. After leaving the army, he became a major star mainly playing villains. In 1969, he won the best supporting actor of the Golden Horse Award. His career continues into the 70s, appearing in classic films such as Raining in the Mountain (1979, King Hu) and in traditional kung fu films such as Mars Villa (the advisor).

He accidentally became a Christian in 1981. It was quite an interesting story. He was invited by the church to sing in a concert----he went there and expected to be paid! After the performance, he was given a book and he thought the banknotes were inside it. After arriving home, he read the book that turned out to be a gospel. He believed and was baptized. He became a philanthropist. In 1983, even when he was very sick, he went to Burma and persuaded the Nationalist soldiers who lived there after the Chinese civil war(1946-1949) to live in Taiwan, bringing them medicine and food. His career continued to flourish, winning the best actor Golden Horse by his impeccable performance in Papa, Can You Hear me Sing? (1983), in which he played a deaf-mute old man. After hearing this good news, this very respectable artiste, who once used to make 9 films simultaneously, swore to God that he must devote 8 months a year to become a volunteer social worker.

He was in a number of films from Taiwanese director/producer Chu Yen-ping. 1989 he retired. He wakes up every morning at 4:50, takes part in the morning service at 7:00a.m. and participates in social work during the rest of the day. Sometimes he would also deliver speeches in schools. He would go home at exactly 7:00p.m. to take his dinner with his wife. Although being a devoted Christian, he is not a religious maniac. In 1991, he organized a trip to the Mainland together with Buddhists, Taoists and Muslims in Taiwan to help his compatriots who lost their homes in a flooding. He also joined the anti-smoking campaign in Taiwan.
