About:I thought of making a webpage in English for Hacken in May 2005. I know that there are many Hacken fans that can't read Chinese and live overseas (I am one of them!), so it's very hard for them to keep up with Hacken's news. This webpage will allow English-speaking fans from all over the world to know what Hacken's doing and also get to know other Hacken fans. This webpage also has a lot of information about Hacken's life and personality. That's why I named the website Hacken Lee ID*, it's about Hacken's identity---you can learn about what kind of person he is. The more you learn about Hacken, the more you will like him! :) He's not only a great singer, he is also a very good person, from whom I have learned a lot of valuable life lessons from. I hope that this webpage will help fans keep up with Hacken's news, concerts, etc. Also, it would be great if non-fans coming here become new Hacken fans after learning more about Hacken. That would make all the staff members and I VERY happy!
Support Hacken forever!!

Also, Hacken was born in the year of the Goat: 1967.
(information compiled and written by Kate)Hacken's girlfriend Emily Lo Suk Yee was Miss Hong Kong 1992. Her birthday is on November 16. She is 6 years younger than Hacken. Emily likes to keep a low profile and is rarely photographed with Hacken except when she goes with him to certain functions, concerts, friends' parties, or Japan on holiday, for instance. They met when he was one of the hosts and guest performers for that year's pageant. Emily was already a fan of Hacken's, and he also seemed to like her. According to one of Hacken's long-time fans, Rou, "Emily remarked during the competition that she actually had fans cos hacken had told his fans that he thinks highly of her and believes that she could win the crown . . . when she had completed her obligations as Ms HK and made the decision to leave showbiz, she also commented that her biggest gain from showbiz was knowing Hacken, even though their relationship then was still under wraps." Emily and Hacken have been a couple for about 14 years now, and they are practically husband and wife, though they have not gotten married. Hacken keeps postponing the wedding because he wants to focus on his career before he starts a family. But right after he won the JSG Most Popular Male Singer award in January 2006, Hacken finally announced on-stage that he will be getting married this year! He will probably have time to get married July or later this year.
Hacken has said many times before that without Emily's support, he would not be so successful today. Besides helping Hacken, she spends her time learning various things. According to Rou, "from whatever little hacken mentioned abt her, in recent years, she had got a golf teaching license, learnt foreign languages and taken up courses [such as Chinese medicine, last year]. In recent years, she has also become his fashion consultant. A lot of people think that Emily is a tai-tai with an easy life cos hacken's earnings these few years is sufficient for her to enjoy life. But in a rare mention of her in an interview, hacken defended her by saying "Emily is actually very busy, She has to arrange all my clothes for my performances, scout for sponsors for me on top of her own work. But I never interfere with her work. I only tell her 'If you want to work, you work. If you want to play, you play. a person is happiest without any financial burden. As long as you are happy, I will support you.'"
Some of Hacken's songs from 2003 and 2004 were related to or directly about his relationship with Emily, such as "Together Long Will Get Married" (and some other ones on the Everlast CD!) (about a couple that have been dating for many years but still haven't gotten married), "3001 Nights" (about a couple together for 10 yrs and how she supported him during his rough times), and "You Cannot Sing" (about how, in Rou's words: "although she does not know how to sing, she always gives him inspiration for his songs". so sweet of him to dedicate this song to her!). Hacken was very emotional when recording the song 3001 Nights in 2003. According to the DAILY BASELESS BLAH, he said "It's been awhile since I got teary eyed when I recorded a song. The lyrics really cut close".
We've been together for 10 years.
We have found hapiness, right?
Even if I dont say anything touching,
our story is still far from being dull
travelling on the edge of cliffs, or snowy grounds,
as I start to lose my energy,
you were there for me. And so, I will not give up.
Thinking back to the days when my heart was too broken to love again,
in the cruel cold, you were there to smile for me.
You brushed away the snow, and started to heal me.
Back when I was not desired by anyone,
you never left my side.
Now I know that you had cried in those days,
but you did no dare to tell me.
To this day, I can finally raise my head with pride,
and you act as if you have never cried in the past.
You know me too well.
From the day you met me on,
you take it upon yourself to never let me hurt again.
(you know me too well.
As if you and I were a result of our past life, you will be by my side this lifetime)
You Won't Sing
Why Fuzzy but like a back shadow
Calming going To the back Give me whistle noise
Actually you should 10 years ago
Have world's appreciation Turn to shining start
* I'm the one on the stage You're the huge person off the stage
Standing beside the stage give me good luck
Everything experience Only scare can't do without you
Can face the whole world Only because of you Sacriface for me
# Actually you know at the beginning What you have given up to follow me
If you Give me up You're achievement will be much bigger
Actually you won't sing Using love to get me though
When I'm On high points In low points
Can still Have more energy to sing Every song
Repeat * #
Never open mouth Quietly clap
But I know Who's with me Without a word dueting this song
Actually you won't sing Put the feelings in the song
If you Don't look at me
Will there be another person to sing love songs to
Actually you won't sing Using love to get me though
Let me when I'm in hard times In stress times
Can still Face the universe
Totally without any worries to sing My song
