For Cantonese drama fans, Lee Hong Kum was a respectable senior. I always saw her acting when I was watching Hong Kong TV drama during my childhood years. Lee Senior was a great actress who played her roles naturally. The Justice of Life, a drama during my primary school years, was the most impressive work for me. She played Alex Man’s mother in the drama and people addressed her Aunt Ming, while Stepthen Chow greeted her Aunt Pretty. During my Year 3 and Year 4 at NTNU, I was always reviewing these Cantonese dramas before bedtime. This was how I comforted my Cantonese soul deep in my heart.
Stepthen Shiu Senior said Lee had had a very smooth and successful acting career throughout her lifetime. This is a very accurate comment because she had so many works. A kind lady, Lee was the good friend of many artists and the godmother of some superstars. Ray Lui felt heavy to bid her farewell but was glad that she left the world peacefully. Alex Man said Lee Senior was suffering from very serious dementia when he visited her and she could not recognise him. Alex kneeled and bowed to his godmother when leaving.
Rest in peace, Lee Senior. Thank you for your good works for the viewing and appreciation of younger generations. The juniors should really learn from your successful acting life.
