K-pop no more? How Mirror led a Canto-pop comeback: as Korean and Mando-pop dominate, the 12-piece Hong Kong boy band became an icon of local pride

Following Covid-19 struggles and political upheaval, the 12-piece united Hongkongers with upbeat lyrics from hit songs like Ignited, Warrior, and One and All

Mirrors rise is reminiscent of 1990s stars like Andy Lau while local pride grows following the citys record-breaking medal haul at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics
