Corey Yuen is a Hong Kong action director, film director, producer and action choreographer. He was a member of the Peking Opera Schools and one of the Seven Little Fortunes. Yuen is perhaps best known as Rubber Legs’ student in 1979 kung fu comedy film Dance of the Drunk Mantis.


Yuen was born in Hong Kong and was one of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao's best friends during their days in the China Drama Academy Peking Opera School. They spent those days training in a harshly disciplined style under the watch of Master Yu Jim-yuen. He would go to appear as an extra in Hong Kong action films during the "chop socky" era of the 1970s.
