When did Mirror start?

Mirror started in 2018 after they all individually participated in the talent show called Good Night Show – King Maker

If you haven’t heard of the show, the premise is that male contestants compete with each other throughout the show in various types of performances. Aside from competing, they also train to become better performers side by side. 

That said, only one will be the winner of the prize – one million dollars.

Anyway, the member named Keung To took home the crown. Meanwhile, Ian Chan took the place of 1st runner up and Lokman Yeung was titled 2nd runner up. 

Of course, these 3 eventually became part of the boyband Mirror, along with 9 other people who competed. 

As you can see, even though one person was named the winner, the other members still garnered a lot of recognition from the public, which helped them rise to fame. 

How did Mirror come up with their group name? 

Mirror members say they came up with their group name as a way to represent how their collaboration creates endless possibilities. This is with the help of both collective creativity and as individuals working independently to achieve their own goals. 

What are Mirror’s most famous songs? 

Mirror’s most famous songs are Warrior, Ignited, and Boss. 

Warrior is the first single they released in 2021. It shows a lot of their progress as a team and just proves why they deserve a spot with the top artists in Hong Kong. 

If you’re particularly fond of the K-pop music scene, you might be familiar with the composers, by the way: Van Del Prete and Hwan Yang. 

Van Del Prete has worked on a lot of famous K-pop songs released by Twice, Aespa, and more. Meanwhile, Hwan Yang is an award-winning producer who has also worked with other K-pop groups like NCT 127. 

Anyway, the song is about doing your best to create your own path. It’s a lively, upbeat song that would make you can’t help but dance to it. 

Ignited has a mature sound compared to their other songs. However, it’s also quite funky with a catchy chorus. 

Even though it received some criticism for being out of style (both the music video and the music), Mirror was able to get a spot in the top ten at the Chill Club Awards and the Ultimate Song Charts Awards with it. 

Boss is an inspiring song that’s all about finding pleasure in your job, which could eventually lead you to becoming your own boss. Lokman Yeung and Alton Wong’s rap skills certainly take center stage in this song.

Now that you’re more well acquainted with their popular songs, you might also be interested in their other songs! As of writing, they just released their first English single called Rumours

You can watch it via Youtube here. We wouldn’t be surprised if this one eventually ranks higher than their other top songs! 

What awards have Mirror received? 

Mirror has received several awards over the years such as these: 

  • Best New Artist (Silver award) – 2019 Top 10 Chinese Gold Songs Award
  • Top 10 Ultimate Songs (Ignited) – 2020 Ultimate Song Chart Awards

What other boy bands in Hong Kong can you recommend aside from Mirror? 

If you want to dive in more into Hong Kong boy bands, aside from Mirror, we recommend Error. 

Like Mirror, Error’s members also participated in the Good Night Show – King Maker in 2018. That same year, they debuted with the single called 404, which is actually a parody of Mirror’s single In a Second
