voice. Usually talent is secondary to the success of a Cantopop singer in Hong Kong. Most of the time, the image sells the albums, as it is one of the characteristic of mainstream music (Mainstream) similarly mirrored in the United States and Japan. Publicity is vital to an idol's career, as one piece of news could make or break one's future. Almost all modern Cantopop stars go into the movie business regardless of their ability to act. They immediately expand to the Mandarin market once their fame is established, hence pure Cantopop stars are almost nonexistent. Outside of the music sales, their success can also be gauged by their income from various sources. For example, according to some reports, Sammi Cheng earned HK$ (Hong Kong dollar)46M (around US$ (United States dollar)6M) from advertisement and merchandise endorsements in one month alone.

Japan

'''Japan''' or '''''Nihon-koku''''', literally " the State of Japan") is an island nation (island country) in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. The characters (Kanji) that make up Japan's name (Names of Japan) mean "sun-origin", which is why Japan is often referred to as the "Land of the Rising Sun".

Japan is a stratovolcanic (Stratovolcano) archipelago of 6,852 islands (List of islands of Japan). The four largest islands are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku, which together comprise about ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area. Japan has the world's tenth-largest population (List of countries by population), with over 126 million people. Honshū's Greater Tokyo Area, which includes the ''de facto'' capital (Capital of Japan) of Tokyo and several surrounding prefectures (Prefectures of Japan), is the largest metropolitan area (World's largest cities) in the world, with over 30 million residents.

Archaeological research indicates that people lived in Japan as early as the Upper Paleolithic period. The first written mention of Japan is in Chinese history (History of China) texts from the 1st century AD. Influence from other regions, mainly China, followed by periods of isolation, later from Western European influence, has characterized Japan's history (History of Japan). From the 12th century until 1868, Japan was ruled by successive feudal military shoguns in the name of the Emperor. Japan entered into a long period of isolation in the early 17th century, which was only ended in 1853 when a United States fleet pressured Japan to open to the West. Nearly two decades of internal conflict and insurrection followed before the Meiji Emperor (Emperor Meiji) was restored as head of state in 1868 and the Empire of Japan was proclaimed, with the Emperor as a divine symbol of the nation. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, victories in the First Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War and World War I allowed Japan to expand its empire during a period of increasing militarism. The Second Sino-Japanese War of 1937 expanded into part of World War II in 1941, which came to an end in 1945 following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Since adopting its revised constitution (Constitution of Japan) in 1947, Japan has maintained a unitary constitutional monarchy with an emperor (Emperor of Japan) and an elected legislature called the Diet (Diet of Japan).
