I admire Andy Lau not for his good looks but more for his business acumen and his persistence in his singing career. I heard him sing in his first album and I thought to myself that if this guy can really sing, anyone can sing! But he worked on it and eventually he became one of the most popular singers in the last 2 decades. Yes, he can sing now! And for that I kowtow to him. This guy has got what it takes to be a success! And succeed he did!
