How were the members of Mirror discovered?
Canto-pop boy band Mirror was formed during ViuTV’s reality competition show, Good Night Show - King Maker. The twelve members of the group, including Frankie Chan, Alton Wong, Lokman Yeung, Stanley Yau, Anson Kong, Jer Lau, Ian Chan, Anson Lo, Jeremy Lee, Edan Lui, Keung To and Tiger Yau, were once contestants of the show—each possesses a distinctive talent in singing, rapping and dancing.
After the show, despite only three of them receiving an award (Keung To won first place while Ian Chan and Lokman Yeung took second and third place respectively), their talents were recognised and handpicked by TV producer Ahfa Wong (aka “Sister Fa”, who later became the group’s manager) who trained them for stardom.
