Almost all mahjong rules have a very similar rulesets, the major difference being the scoring.
Some have very distinctive features like dora or jokers; beside that, it's mostly fine-prints.
Unfortunately, very few rules have an authoritative rulebook. Others, like Hong Kong, vary from one players' group to another.

So, beside scoring, there are probably more differences between two Hong Kong house-rules, than between Hong Kong and Zung Jung.
