Letters | Mirror, Mirror: why Canto-pop boy band are pure love for Hong Kong
- It is hard not to fall in love with these young men given how they have remained true, pure and down to earth even after their rapid rise to stardom
Some people might say it is a crazy situation. After all, they were just a bunch of regular youngsters packaged to be stars. But I can see why everyone in the city is falling in love with them.
Actually, it is hard not to do so. Unlike other stars, who are mostly superficial, boastful and sophisticated, these boys are true, pure and down to earth. The amazing thing is they remain so even after their rise to fame.
Their recent show Ossan’s Love was an instant success. The series is hilarious and sensitively touching. It depicts the romantic relationships among the three actors. Love is something that fills the void of human hearts. The boys made the series a breakthrough in viewership for ViuTV.
For a city with a versatile population like ours, anything can happen. I can only hope that people try to be calm and sensible as they pursue what is good and genuine.
