Yeung Gor is often compared to his villainous father, Yeung Hong, but other than their superficial similarities, they did not really have much in common...either in biographies or personalities and temperaments. Yeung Gor did, however, show some similarities to his grandfather, Yeung Teet Sum, whom he never knew:
1. Both were devoted husbands. Yeung Gor famously waited sixteen years for Little Dragon Girl; it should not be forgotten that his grandfather spent eighteen years (although somewhat stupidly, because he could have found her much sooner via Yau Chui Gei) searching for his wife, Pau Sik Yerk.
2. Both were judgmental hotheads whose tempers often got them into trouble.
3. Both seemed to be men ruled more by their hot passions than their good sense; they were impulsive.
4. Naturally, both were courageous and heroic.
Ironically, Yeung Gor probably knew nothing about who his grandfather was (perhaps not even his name). It was difficult enough for Yeung Gor to get information about his father from the people who'd known him, let alone his grandfather. Did Muk Lim Chi, Gwok Jing, Wong Yung, Yau Chui Gei, Wong Chui 1, or Ohr Jen Ngok ever tell Yeung Gor anything about his grandfather? Did Yeung Gor ever learn of his grandparents' tragic fate?
