Four Heavenly Kings (Hong Kong)

Four Heavenly Kings (四大天王) is a Chinese term created in June 1992 by Oriental Daily News to refer to the four biggest male superstars in Hong Kong at that time: Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung, Aaron Kwok and Leon Lai.[1] They dominated entertainment not only in Hong Kong but throughout the Chinese speaking world in the 1990s, having very successful singing careers (in both Cantopop and Mandopop) as well as acting careers well into the 2000s. The 1990s is sometimes called the "Four Heavenly Kings Era" in Hong Kong entertainment.[2]

The term Four Heavenly Kings originally refers to 4 gods in Buddhism.
