Voice Entertainment singer Hana Kuk (菊梓喬) was selected to perform the Cantonese theme song for the Chinese romantic comedy Legend of Phoenix <鳳弈>, which also stars Wayne Lai (黎耀祥). The series—produced by Penguin Pictures—centers on a love story between a general and a traveling artist.
Hana was offered to record the song soon after completing her August concert. “That was the first time I got to perform on my own stage,” said Hana when describing her concert. “I was deeply moved. I used to lack confidence, but under the support of my team and the fans, I get to show off my little universe on the stage. Now, I have the confidence to continue my music dream.”
The theme song—aptly titled “Soar Against the Light” <逆光飛翔>—deeply resonates with Hana’s own thoughts and experiences about her concert. The song marks a new beginning for Hana’s rising career—known for performing sad love songs, “Soar Against the Light” sends a positive message—that as long as one does not give up on hope, light will be seen at the end of the tunnel.
“The director wanted me to run through a dark tunnel,” said Hana about the music video. “No matter where I go, there will be light. I hope those who hear the song can also feel its positive energy. Don’t give up on your dreams. There will be a day of success.”
Legend of Phoenix also stars Viva He (何泓姗), Jeremy Tsui (徐正溪), and Cao Xiwen (曹曦文).
