Anson Lo

What is the first thing that comes to mind when speaking of Anson Lo? Is it what his fans call him, “Master”? A petrol station trainee? Without a doubt, Ling Siu Muk from the hit drama Ossan’s Love has captured the hearts of many people. Anson is hugely grateful for this, but the drama also posed a great challenge. It was most difficult for Anson to express the mixed emotions of this character. While it was equally hard for Anson to grasp the high-pitch of the theme song, the interlude Unloveable Leader reveals Anson’s tender side. With the recent release of Megahit, the “Master” hopes that this fast-paced number and MV will bring joy and get his fans dancing along!
