In the 1980s, Hong Kong blossomed with brilliance with superstars shining bright. The speaker was fortunate to have grown together with Hong Kong's pop culture at that time. While the golden years cannot be replicated, this lecture looks back on how television, movies, pop music, fashion, disco culture, and city magazines accumulated cultural momentum, which may open up more possibilities for Hong Kong culture.
