A native of Wugu Hsiang of the Taipei province, Lu was born as Lin Lu in 1932, and had studies in an agricultural school. Lu went for an audition at Taiwan's Jian Nan Films in 1956, and became the only one recruited. He began his acting career in Taiwanese-dialect films using his stage name Qi Feng. Lu was offered the leading role in his acting debut "Xin Suan Suan", followed by a smooth career. He was widely regarded as one of the "Four Greatest Leading Men" in Taiwanese cinema, along with Ko Chun-Hsiung, Yang Ming and Shi Jun. He was also known as "The No.1 Tough Guy in Taiwan". Lu caught the attention of director Pan Lei in 1967 and was subsequently recruited by the studio. He then changed his stage name to Lu Ping and starred in various Mandarin titles, including "Tomorrow Is Another Day" and "The Fastest Sword". Pan regarded Lu as the "San Chuan Ban" (Mifunese), referring to the veteran Japanese star Toshiro Mifune. Later, Lu joined the camp of director Joseph Kuo and starred in "Triangular Duel", "Iron Man" and "The 18 Bronzemen". He became a production manager in 1977, and co-produced Ming Guan films with Wang Guan-Xiong and Liu De-Kai. Lu also ran businesses on metal and construction materials simultaneously, and he gradually gave up acting to become a full-time businessman.
