Yumiko Cheng Hei Yee (Chinese: 鄭希怡; born September 6, 1981) is a popular Hong Kong Cantopop singer born in Shanghai. Born Zheng Lieqiong (鄭烈瓊), Cheng was given the Japanese name "Yumiko" by her friends in secondary school. After Cheng signed on with EEG, the name was retained.
Yumiko was originally a member of the group 3T (along with Mandy and Maggie Lau), which released an EP in September of 2002. Yumiko's potential was, however, soon identified by the company and in November 2002, her first solo EP Yumiko The Debut EP was released, followed by DanceDanceDance (舞舞舞) in June of 2003. Her first full-length album One2Three was released in November 2003.
Apart from that, Yumiko has also taken part in various TV shows and a dozen of TV commercials as well as gracing the covers of various magazines on hundreds of occasions.
In 2004, she released her second full-length album, Perfect Date, but her number of appearances has decreased slightly due to health problems as well as strategy re-evaluation within her company. She returned precipitately in June of 2005 with the song "Arabian Market" (亞拉伯市場). Her fourth full-length studio album, Passion was released in April of 2006, which sees a continuation of the Middle Eastern theme in the single "Lupine Girl" (狼女).
Yumiko has also starred in several films, including a special guest appearance in Stanley Kwan's 2005 feature, Everlasting Regret.
