The Lion Rock mountain, located between Kowloon and the New Territories, stands not only as one of the most famous scenic spots in Hong Kong. It has also become a spiritual symbol representing the unremitting efforts of ordinary Hong Kong residents to live a better life.

This attribution owes thanks to Below the Lion Rock, a TV show which began broadcasting in the 1970s, and which, over five seasons, depicted the lives of people in Hong Kong. Its eponymous theme song has profound resonance among listeners and is recognized as a classic piece of 20th-century Hong Kong pop music.
