Húng Lao was born and raised in a small town in Vietnam called Hung Yen. He's always been a funny, energetic, humoristic person who believes in karma and has high faith for humanity. Despite his rough childhood due to being an orphan, he still had his loving and caring older brother Sum Ting Wong by his side. He's always been a kind of guardian angel for Hung, always protecting him from the bullying teenagers in high school.
Things were different back then. Hung was only a teenager, a lot has happened since those days. Hung got split up with his brother during his work trip to Chernarus. It was at this moment that Hung realized; being a reporter was the worst mistake he could've ever made. Hung arrives in Chernarus with high hopes of the new promotion he was promised if he got some good footage of what was going on over in Chernarus. What he didn't know, was that this would possibly be the last time he would see his brother.
The day after Hung arrives to Chernarus all remaining flights were canceled. Hung's plane was one of the last planes to land in Chernarus before the outbreak started to spread massively. Ever since the outbreak Hung has been staying on the run, moving from town to town and from coast to coast looting, scavenging, staying clear from people; being afraid of getting attacked by the infected. He hasn't really seen any living people, or civilisation for months now. All he has been running into is the dead.
