Film

Her role as Mei in the 2009 film, Singapore Dreaming garnered rave reviews for her performance. Mei has been brought up against the favouritism of her parents. Mei is the underappreciated daughter of the family, married to CK, whom she occasionally henpecks. Indignant that younger brother Seng was sent overseas when she was the one whose academic performance was more distinguished, she bears a patent grudge against Seng. Mei's struggle against her family prejudice, career obstacles, financial difficulties allowed Yann Yann to fully display her flair in acting. The acclaim is more amplified by the fact that the producers were unacquainted with Yann Yann, though they used her face as a reference when writing for the character, Mei.

The film bagged the Montblanc New Screenwriters Award at the 54th San Sebastian International Film Festival, and was the first Singaporean film to receive an IFFPA-recognised international feature film award.

Television

Previously only noted for role as Chen Mei Li (陈美丽) in The Right Frequency, Yann Yann has been progressively seen more frequently on local television programmes since 2008.
