    • Synopsis
    • Boy bands are everywhere, in magazines and commercials, on the radio and television, and in the movies. People’s reactions to boy band music range from amazement and awe to disgust and hatred, but it is an undeniable aspect of popular culture, doing its part to fulfill the dreams of teenage girls and line the pockets of music industry masterminds. Yet how much do we really know about boy bands? What is it like to belong to such a group and what happens behind the scenes? Following Conroy Chan, Andrew Lin, Terence Yin, and Daniel Wu, The Heavenly Kings divulges everything that Hong Kong’s star-making machine is afraid to tell. Shot from a fly-on-the-wall perspective, this documentary details the rise, fall, and ultimate success of an unlikely modern-day Asian boy band comprised of established actors who cross over into the music industry as "Alive". From learning how to sing and dance to developing their own marketing strategies, the entire process is laid out for all to see in this no-holds-barred film. The Heavenly Kings will take you along on a crazy, frenetic, and oftentimes hilarious journey to the peaks and the bowels of the entertainment business. Is it reality or is it Alive’s twisted point of view? Watch and decide for yourself.
