Born and raised in a wealthy family, Ying Ying Chung had planned to pursue a career and lifestyle in music and arts, yet the plan did not go as expected. A phone call at age 26 forced her to return home and take up the never-thought-before Koi breeding business in the hopes to alleviate the family debt. Currently as the general manager of Sing Chang Koi Farm, Ying Ying has accumulated over 11 years of experience in Koi breeding, yet she still humbly calls herself as a trainee at the Koi Farm.
As many traditional Taiwanese industries were facing growth stagnation, the Koi business was no exception. Ying Ying decided to try her luck in the international market, and brought her fish to compete in overseas exhibitions. After several adverse incidents and clashes with her competitors, Ying Ying managed to pull through. Now, known as the Queen of Taiwanese Koi, she was awarded with 4 Koi Championship titles, and 11 Koi related awards in Holland in 2010.
Ying Ying once said during an interview, “I used to see eating the rib eye steak as the happiest time of my life, but now my happiness comes from challenging myself to the impossible."
