Wong began as a director in the mid-1950s, working for the Hsin Hwa Film Company. He later joined Cathay Organisation.
When Cathay Studios was shut down in the early 1970s, Wong continued to establish himself as a filmmaker, making TV drama serials by combining film production techniques with the flexibility of television production, and became a trendsetter in melodrama and wuxia serials.
Wong retired from the television production scene, and in his later career could be seen in appearances and supporting roles in films directed by Johnnie To, Wai Ka-Fai and his son, Wong Jing, who has followed in his footsteps.
