Mark Lee Kok Huang 李国煌 – He never gives up

Mark Lee Kok Huang 李国煌 – He never gives up as least up till now 🙂 He has just received the Best Variety Show Host 2010 Award at the Stars Award. This is a show of his remarkable achievement on hosting, although I feel that sometimes he tried to “copy the style of a great Taiwan host <Jacky Wu 吴宗宪> in hosting, even then he does still possess his own style.

So why do I say that he never gives up, I am not an artiste but I think in the media line it is not easy to move from a “odd job extra” to a famous local artiste :). Mark Lee has surely worked his way from the bottom up. When I first get to know about this name  李国煌. He was acting as a rubbish bin in a Monday comedy <搞笑行动>, a very small role. Then he started getting better roles in the comedy shows and later on into hosting.

Alll these years his hard work had paid off – Here is a list of award he had won.

I believe there is something to learn from here, if you never give up , you will make it one day.

Furthermore, he also started his own businesses and currently has partnership in the Monsoon Group Salon and the Old Town Coffee shop chain. Certainly his path to rich and famous wasn’t easy, his never give up attidtue certanly plays a big role in helping him achieve that.

*most of his news I read online , thus I was not able to find his exact stake in the businesses. But I feel his perseverance in pursing achievement  is some thing that I can serious learn.
