Hong Kong boy band Mirror’s member Anson Lo’s eagle-eyed fans spotted him wearing a knitted beanie despite it not being obvious in a photo uploaded on Lo’s Instagram story. This might be unusual in Hong Kong’s 30 degrees Celcius weather but common for Lo, who has a penchant for wearing winterwear-like outfits despite the heat. 

With his scheduled packed to the brim, Lo, whose birthday was on 7 July, uploaded a photo of him celebrating his birthday with Anson Kong, another member of Mirror, more than one month after the date of his birthday. However, what captured his fans’ attention was Lo wearing a beanie in the photo, proving that in Mirror, “there is no summer”. 

“I ended work earlier today, and we finally had my birthday meal after many postponements since deciding to do so more than two weeks ago,” Lo wrote. His post invited many fans to comment that they realised he was wearing a beanie in such hot weather. 

Following the initial Instagram Story, the 26-year-old posted another video of him with a nosebleed filter, still in the same outfit, captioning “Yes, it is indeed, a beanie.”

Yes, it is indeed, a beanie

Made up of 12 members, Mirror is a Hong Kong Cantopop boy band formed through ViuTV’s reality talent show ‘Good Night Show - King Maker’ in 2018. Winning numerous accolades since their debut, their 2021 single “Warrior” topped the Ultimate 903 Chart for two weeks, breaking a 15-year record.

The group’s immense popularity brought forth a 334,000-member Facebook group called My Wife Married Mirror and Left My Marriage In Ruins. The starter of the group wrote that “One day, my wife fell in love with Mirror. From then, every day I listen to Keung To’s voice and see Anson Lo’s face. I don’t hate Mirror, but I think fellow men need a group to share our feelings.”

The group is also featured in the New York Times, likened to the hugely popular Korean group BTS, but singing in Cantonese. Credited for reviving Cantopop, Lo and his teammates’ endorsements are seen plastered all over Hong Kong on billboards, buses and subways for products ranging from air conditioners to McDonald’s. Lo and member Ian Chan also collaborated with the Hong Kong Tourism Board to spotlight local attractions during the COVID-19 pandemic in Hong Kong.
