Evolution of the Hong Kong beauty in films

Since the 1980s, Hong Kong has been a cradle for a number of influential female celebrities who have integrated as part of Hong Kong culture, contributing to the peak of the special administrative region's entertainment circle.

Once nicknamed as "China's cultural desert", elements of traditional Chinese culture combining western cultural influences have shaped Hong Kong in every facet of lifestyle, spanning from the music available to TV dramas, films, books, food and what many people consider to be aesthetically pleasing.

In 2017, the return of the classic movie A Chinese Odyssey Part Two: Cinderella to the big screen, as well as the reshooting of The Legend of the Condor Heroes, strike a chord with Chinese movie-goers.

To a majority of Chinese generations, born between 1970 and 1990, the golden-twenty-years (1980-2000) marks an unforgettable period of Hong Kong culture. During this period, a large number of influential TV dramas, films and musical albums were produced.

The classic role from a certain movie, the melody song from a certain album all call wake up our best memories.
