A discrepancy regarding a writer’s birthdate

Hi everyone

A Chinese movie writer who, according to google, passed away in 1991, has the birthdate of November 8, 1968 on his page, which makes him eight years old when he wrote his first movie!

Ying Wong seems to be a rather common Chinese name (let alone with altered transliteration...), and I cannot trace your Google information. Do you mind sharing the link?
Anyway, this is an obvious case of homonymy.

Certain examples of movies written by underage people do happen, but, as Vincent said, it also happens to be a common name.
