Who’s in Han Chin Pet Soo – Dancing Girl Yong (Episode 3)

By Ian Anderson

Dancing Girl Yong

As a concubine of an extremely wealthy Chinese Towkay in the 1930s, Soo, unlike her friend Yong, is well up the social scale of local girls in Ipoh.

Yong, however, is known to the club members as a ‘Dancing Girl’ and is happy to dance with any of them, usually horizontally.
