After graduating from secondary school, Aaron Kwok worked as a junior staff in King Fook Gold & Jewellery Co. Ltd. as his father wished for him to gain experience in the business with the view of handing over the family business, a small gold retail store.

In 1985, Kwok"s outstanding performance in a pageant show was spotted. He was transferred to the acting department of the talent training course and became a TV actor, where he played a few bit parts in TV dramas.

A Taiwanese motorcycle advertisement in the early 1990s gained him instant popularity and he burst into the music scene with his now famous song "Loving You Forever". The next few years saw his popularity reach fever-pitch, and he was soon ranked alongside the most popular artistes of the time.

In 2004, a string of concert dates earned Kwok a Hong Kong Dance Award presented by the Hong Kong Dance Alliance. Due to this unfounded success, Kwok toured again in 2005, receiving praise from both critics and audiences.
