郭富城 (Aaron Kwok) is one of the 4 Heavenly Kings of Hong Kong Pop Scene in the 90s and early 2000s.
A Hong Kong local boy, he joined the local TV station, TVB, as a dancer. He is known as a very talented dancer and appeared in numerous music videos of different stars such as 陈慧娴, 邝美云, 梅艳芳, 周慧敏 and 陈百强.
It is ironic that later he would be as famous if not more famous than some of these stars that he played a small background part in their career.
His big break came in 1990 when he was the actor in a Taiwanese
motorcycle TV commercial. The commercial was for a motorcycle 光阳机车 DJ1-RR model. His handsome looks, wet hair image and electrifying attractive eyes sent tons of Taiwanese girls crazy and he became an overnight sensation in Taiwan.
For your pleasure, I have found the video (郭富城 光阳DJ-1RR 电单车 广告) in YouTube and sharing them with you. How one’s life change due to one moment:
And this Taiwan YouTube discuss his amazing launch of his career after many years of “quiet unknown”
In 1990 and 1991, the good look sensation then released 3 very well received Chinese albums in Taiwan. These were 对你爱不完, 我是不是该安静的走开 and 到底有谁能够告诉我.
Not withstanding the quite comical pronunciation (remember this is a Cantonese guy trying to sing in Mandarin), his songs quickly became household songs and he enjoyed tremendous success in Taiwan.
