Biography
Her original name was Wong Oi Chi (王愛之) but her mother decided to change her Chinese name to Wong Yuen Chi when she was five. The fact is, that her original name is pronounced almost the same as the AIDS (Cantonese: Oi Chi). Wong won the CASH (Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong) Song Writers Quest in 2000 with her Mandarin piece "It is just misunderstanding and not tragic at all" (是一個誤會沒甚麼可悲).

She signed for Universal Music (環球唱片) in 2004 as an all-round artist (composer, lyricist and singer). On 5 October 2004, she sang with Jacky Cheung (張學友) "I am really hurt" (我真的受傷了) in his live performance and started to become well-known.

In May 2005, her first EP album "Ivana Wong 王菀之" was launched and sales were good. Encouraged, the record company launched a second album "I Love My Name" in November 2005, calling the event "Having Two Babies in One Year" (一年抱兩).

Other than writing songs for herself, Wong has also composed several songs for various artists.

Yeah, agreed with you all who say her voice is too high. I heard her song, 'One Min. Emotional' and it sound like it's about to break the glass or windows >.<
Her voice aint that strong compare to Janice. Even though she compose her own songs I find them boooring. I also heard her singing an upbeat song and ehh...it was quite bad, really want me to turn the TV off. Am not dissing her or anything but just speaking my mind =]

I think her debate album was ok, and that she only scratched the surface, in terms of her writing abilities. I think best new artist will be between her and Janice. Maybe she'll release a new album before the years end. I found her debate album to be kinda a snooozeeeeee.....

Yesterday Ivana Wong was at a 'I Love My Name' function to promote her new album. She also sang a few of her new songs and especially played the piano while singing along to "I Am Really Hurt'. Ivana saw the salesclerk spending their time to place her cds on the bamboo shelves, causing her to be happy.

Ivana's album was released this month on the ninth. That day she recieved alot of fans' complaints that they couldn't get her album. The reason was because the 'little chick' cover was printed late and had only printed 10,000 copies then. That was only half of the amount planned to be printed, causing the fans to be empty-handed.

Ivana is really talented, her talent to compose and write lyrics are just very impressive expecially since she wrote that song for Miriam which was really good and helped miriam get top 10 gold song for almost all award shows in the january award shows. I have to say shes better than Janice in a way because she has a really good and stable voice whereas Janice is always nervous when singing and likes to make all those feedback noises that usually backup singers do. They should award top newcomer female award to both Janice and Ivana because they are truely last years best female newcomers. Her career path is probabley going to be really good since shes able to compose and write songs just like a female version of Justin Lo because they are both talented piano players.

She and Hins are adorable. If they are not dating, they are really understanding friends. They don't care about rumors and are able to perform on the same stage. Along with that, they are willing to be there for each other in front of an audience despite all those rumors and that is just so rare. By doing that, more rumors will surface, but at the same time nothing is kept a secret so all reporters can write is what exactly happened as opposed to making things up.

I agree with Ivana x Hins fans! They're just SOOOO cute! did you see them hug on stage at Chik Chak 903?? SOOO ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! And I love her songs, it's ok if you think they're a snooze, but they're definitely not mainstream HK Pop, you know? Love her style soo very much. Definitely got talent. And those who think she sounds like Faye... just wait til you hear the Ivana x Hins 903 Live Concert... they were singing the Jacky Cheung and Faye song... Oh dear, she sounds EXACTLY like Faye! I was so surprised!

ok... can't resist. you GOTTA listen to the Jacky Cheung concert with her in it. first performance i THINK... but she did wonderfully, AND she played piano at the same time (it's not so easy... >.>)

Ivana is freaking talented. (I'm a huge fan of hers =D and Hins. clapclap I get excited whenever I talk about them... and Leo XD)

Check out video and audio clips of Ivana's interview, click on the boxs to play them. It's probably better to use Internet Explorer. It pauses for a while so make sure you wait and not click on the next audio. It keeps flashing until each audio clip is finished playing so you'd know.

I got to know alot more about her through these audio and video clips. You can tell she a person that's very in arts.

Hi, Everyone,

I'm so happy to have finally found an English forum dedicated to Ivana Wong.

For those who haven't looked her up in youtube, I strongly recommend that you go there. There are so many video clips of her live performances. My faves are:
a) At Leo Koo's concert where they sing the duet from the Wolf Legend musical.
b ) Duet with Hins at her "I Love My Name" promo

What I love about her is the fact that her music is so different from what you normally hear from studio-packaged albums and popstars. I like her first two albums more than her newest one, though. Some of the songs in Poems and Art are starting to sound a bit commercial.

Hopefully, her contract with Universal will be renewed if it hasn't already, and she'll get to put out more albums.

Dear me, I love Ivana so much, her singing is so good, its almost unbelievable.
I would tell my dad that this person (Ivana) sings better when she's live then Miriam/Hacken on CD. She is so talented, the way she controls her voice. Her songs are so addicting too, Thunder&Lightning, and Painters Passion?

She and Hins are so nice to each other, I don't care if they are dating or not, but they are such good friends. When Hins had his first concert, Ivana stopped her dinner with parents to go on stage to give him a big hug and flowers, like, that is real friendship!!!

Hins&Ivana, the couple that writes songs!!!! So sweeet, just like Kay and Louis, they should get married if they ARE dating. (Who knows?? Maybe they are planning it right this moment)

All of her songs are very good, despite the fact that most of them are slow and soft melody songs. She should try to be brave and have some fast-paced songs, instead of just focusing on slow (Vincy too)

I LOVE IVANA WONG~~~~

This thread is still on page one? Aren't there any English-speaking Ivana fans?

Here's the theatrical video for her new single, The Mask 面具MV (鬧交版)

作詞:王菀之 作曲:王菀之 
編曲:褚鎮東

路太遠 試試兜圈
望更遠 智慧的開端
沿途話虧損 傷心會軟
心愛需要挑選

若怕痛 試試婉轉
並永記 愛侶鋪的磚
從前是相戀 現在計算
為何明明共聚問候沒
半句太過心酸

*曾挽手避開幾多次雨水
 仍記得那天掌心印在這裏
 熱情漸褪去 才明瞭全是
沒有火花的允許
 若說穿 其實當初不登對
 留盡多少的眼淚 活得幾歲
 若必須面對 面具掩飾空虛*

在這晚 吃了一餐
望兩眼 慣性的餐單
然後望清水 靜默以對
為何明明共聚問候沒半
句太過唏噓

REPEAT*

Wo...
為習慣以一世相許
無論曾避開幾多次雨水
來承認幸福根本不在這裏
讓全部過去 來從頭尋覓
最愛讓痴心寄居
若說穿 其實不捨得失去
才學懂分開去睡 活於堡壘
命註定的一對 最後各有所取

Her voice isn't what i prefer but it is a good voice. I notice that even if her voice is whispery. she is on cue and hits her notes correctly 100 % of the time thus far.

Yes it is confirmed, Ivana has now joined East Asia. Wow, seriously, EA has wayy too many female singers, but with A-music as part of EA...who will they promote? Up & comingwise, EA has Janice, Jill, Charmaine Fong, and now Ivana. But the new singers have to compete with also..Sammi, Miriam, Hocc for promotion.

Congrats to Ivana on winning her first gold medal for Best Songwriter at the Chik-Chak Music Awards.

It was a very emotional evening as her best friend, Hins Cheung, won 3 awards and publicly thanked her while he was on stage, receiving one of the awards.

i felt sooo bad for ivana yesterday night for the JSG Top ten gold songs.....
stupid hosts...trying to fool around with the singers...>:(
well, for most outstanding singer award, they called up Ivana's name, but while she was giving her speech, they found out that they called the wrong name and it was supposed to be HINS! and they made her feel sooo embarrassed and bad...>:( i rly dislike amigo chui...he was so mean...to stephy and to ivana....and then when HIns got the award, Ivana was all humble and said that it didn't matter and that she would present the award to him, and when he had to sing, he invited her to sing with him and being such a supportive and great friend......
but as you know, Ivana does not sing R&b so it was indeed very embarrassing for her....
But in the end, she got one award, which was the best singer/composer award, and the hosts told hins to present it to Ivana and he got to just dance for her......haiiii.......I feel so bad for Ivana, she truely has talent!

Yes, kei_two, that was a very embarrassing moment for Ivana. I don't think it was the 3 hosts who set it up, though. I tend to believe that it was the executive producer. Tsang, Chui, and Yu may have known about it, but I doubt they would have had the guts to pull something like this off without the exec. producer's approval.

TVB's just jealous that Chik Chak got the authentic and heartfelt speech from Hins Cheung when he thanked her on stage. Of course, TVB can't be left out of the action, so they orchestrated this. It was hilarious, though, when Ivana said, "No matter. It wasn't deliberate." That's when Tsang laughed really loudly, which kind of indicates that he knows this was no accident. Ivana is a great sport though, playing along with it with such class.

Kudos to all the other artists who got on stage with her to support her.
