Ken Hung Cheuk Lap is a Hong Kong cantopop singer. He started his career after earning a second place in the EEG Singing Contest (aka 25th annual New Talent Singing Awards Hong Kong Regional Finals). During 2007, he went to help in the office for about 3–4 months cutting newspapers because Mani[who?] said he was too shy. Then he finally started recording songs. First song that came out was "Love.gutless" (愛.無膽). His singing tone was similar to Eason Chan and therefore compared to so that song became a hit and led to his rise in popularity throughout HK.[citation needed] And because of that, his first CD used the name of the song.[citation needed] His logo is 'little froggy', Ken said that Mani gave him that logo because she want him to sing like a frog, loud and clear.[citation needed]

During 2008, he suffered his first bout of hydrothorax, which stopped him from working for most of 2008 until the filming of Love is Elsewhere. However, the problem returned late in 2008, his condition deteriorated and he was hospitalized. He had to cease all work including the filming of the drama Prince & Princess 2 in Taiwan. He was later released from the hospital. He is now working on the promotion of the movie Happily Ever After.
