Yip Wai Man

  • Once Upon a Time in Triad Society (Chinese: 旺角揸Fit人) (1996)
The story of a gangster "Ugly Kwan" (Francis Ng)'s rise and fall in the Triads. This is a sort of spin-off from the Young and Dangerous series. While Ng is basically reprising his role as Ugly Kwan from Young and Dangerous 1 and the priest from the series (Lam) makes an appearance, their ends don't mesh with the Y&D storyline.
  • Once Upon a Time in Triad Society 2 (Chinese: 旺角揸Fit人2) (1996)
Not a continuation of the original, the sequel stars Ng in the role of Dagger who has a reputation for being good with fighting. In reality his reputation has been overblown by rumours and he uses his wit to get out of lethal situations.
  • Portland Street Blues (Chinese: 古惑仔情義篇之洪興十三妹) (1998)
Portland Street Blues is the first spin-off to the franchise, providing a different contrast to the familiar Young and Dangerous films with more character development. This time, the story's focus centers on "Sister 13". In a triad underworld dominated by men, the film tells the story of how she faces the trials and tribulations of rising to become the Hung Hing's branch leader of Portland Street, and her willingness to forgo a heterosexual relationship. The film also gives more details and insights on the rival Tung Sing triad and the mutual friendship between Sister 13 and Ben Hon.
  • Young and Dangerous: The Prequel (Chinese: 新古惑仔之少年激鬥篇) (1998)
Showcasing the earlier years of Chan Ho Nam (Nicholas Tse) and Chicken (Sam Lee), this prequel tells of their time during their willingness to follow Hung Hing's "Uncle Bee". The film co-stars Shu Qi and Daniel Wu.
  • The Legendary 'Tai Fei' (Chinese: 古惑仔激情篇洪興大飛哥) (1999)
In another spin-off, after Tai Fei obtains branch leadership status of North Point in Young and Dangerous 4, he discovers he has a son. Worse yet, his son is a member of the hated Tung Sing triad, now dealing in narcotics.
  • Those Were The Days... (Chinese: 古惑仔之山鸡的故事) (2000)
This semi-prequel/spin-off follows the life of Chicken before he joined the Hung Hing triad. The film co-stars Gigi Leung as Chicken's childhood friend.
  • Once a Gangster (Chinese: 飛砂風中轉) (2010)
Once a Gangster is a 10th year anniversary spin-off parody. This film does not directly follow the mainstream plot. The film is an action comedy. Both Ekin Cheng and Jordan Chan are starred in the film as "Sparrow" and "Roast Chicken."

Famous quotes containing the words man and/or yip:

    In two or three hundred years life on earth will be unimaginably beautiful, astounding. Man needs such a life and if it hasn’t yet appeared, he should begin to anticipate it, wait for it, dream about it, prepare for it. To achieve this, he has to see and know more than did his grandfather and father.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    If the book is good, is about something that you know, and is truly written, and reading it over you see that this is so, you can let the boys yip and the noise will have that pleasant sound coyotes make on a very cold night when they are out in the snow and you are in your own cabin that you have built or paid for with your work.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
