Ng Kwee Khim, best known by her stage name Kym Ng, is a Singaporean television host and actress. Ng is one of the three artistes who holds the record for most wins in the Best Variety Show Host category at Star Awards, with four wins. Ng was educated at River Valley High School and did pre-university studies (A Levels) at Tanjong Katong Secondary School. Ng was previously a flight stewardess with Singapore Airlines and began her show business career as a singer. Subsequently, she joined the MediaCorp's predecessor Television Corporation of Singapore in 1995 and switched to hosting and acting. She became known to audiences as host of the popular infotainment programme City Beat alongside Pan Lingling, Lina Ng, Sharon Au and Bryan Wong. Her performance in the programme earned Ng her first two wins in the coveted Best Variety Show Host award at the Star Awards. In 2001, she left MediaCorp and joined SPH MediaWorks. But after four years, SPH MediaWorks merged with MediaCorp and Ng was transferred back to MediaCorp. Although bilingual, Ng is most often seen on Chinese language programmes on Channel 8 and Channel U. She is known for her direct connection with the audience and her bubbly nature. She often hosts "food reviews" and variety shows. Since returning to MediaCorp, Ng has enjoyed success and has hosted more than 150 shows since the start of her television career. In 2005, Ng was approached by director Wee Li Lin to star in the film, Gone Shopping. Her performance was stated by the Straits Times as "(Kym) Ng is a revelation here. Her role Clara, who could have been a self-indulgent bore of a character, is beguilingly shy, naively yearning and sweetly forlorn." The film took two years to complete (June 2005 to July 2007). Ng was quoted on U-weekly magazine that she was mentally prepared that the film would not follow through. The principal shoot of the film commenced in December 2006 to March 2007. In 2011, Ng hosted the highly acclaimed variety show Love on a Plate. The programme won Best Variety Programme and gotten Ng her third Best Variety Show Host win at the Star Awards 2011. It also won a "highly commended" recognition for Best Reality Programme at the 2011 Asian Television Awards. Her performance in Jobs Around the World bagged Ng her fourth Best Variety Show Host win, tying her with Sharon Au and Mark Lee for the record of most wins in the category. For acting, her role as the repressed Luo Na in "It Takes Two" secured Ng her first Best Actress nomination at the Star Awards. It was her second acting performance award nomination, following her Best Supporting Actress-nominated role as Hai De in The New Adventures of Wisely in 1998. At Star Awards 2018, her supporting role as Lu Meiguang in When Duty Calls garnered Ng her first acting performance award win at the award show. The win marks Ng's second acting performance award of her career, after being recognised at the 2005 Asian Television Awards for Best Comedy Performance by an Actress for her role in Durian King. In Star Awards 2019, Ng received the All-Time Favourite Artiste after winning the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award from 1999, 2006–2007, 2012–2013 and 2015–2018 respectively. Currently, she is the co-host of The Sheng Siong Show, together with Dasmond Koh and Denise Camillia Tan.
