YesAsia Editorial Description

From the makers of Vampire Cleanup Department comes the boxing film One Second Champion! The closing film of the 2020 Hong Kong Asian Film Festival, Chiu Sin Hang's first solo directorial effort refreshes the classic underdog redemption storyline with a supernatural twist. Singer Endy Chow stars as the late-blooming boxer with a one-second advantage. One Second Champion co-stars singer Lin Min Chen who appeared in Vampire Cleanup Department, Thai star Chanon Santinatornkul from Bad Genius, and director Chiu Sin Hang.

Besides starring in the film, Endy Chow and Chiu Sin Hang (from band ToNick) also composed and performed the theme song Origin Of Time, which won Best Original Film Song at the 40th Hong Kong Film Awards.

Endy Chow x ToNick
Chiu Sin Hang, the lead singer of Hong Kong band ToNick and occasional actor, has developed a respectable second (or third) career in filmmaking. He made his co-directing debut in 2017 with the well-received Vampire Cleanup Department, and his first solo directorial feature One Second Champion grossed a very respectable HK$17 million, ranking fifth in box office among Hong Kong films in 2021. Besides directing and acting, Chiu Sin Hang, or Hangjai as he goes by in ToNick, also brings his music into film by creating the theme songs.

For One Second Champion's theme song, ToNick joins forces with the film's leading man, Endy Chow. Composed by Endy and Hangjai, "Origin of Time" won Best Original Film Song at the 40th Hong Kong Film Awards. Characteristic of Endy and ToNick's music styles, the rousing pop rock number's sound and message fit in with the film's underdog story about a struggling, washed-up father who utilizes his ability to see one second into the future to become a boxer for the sake of his son.

Written by Cheng Man, the song's lyrics highlight the struggles of living and having your rough edges grinded down by time. "Origin of Time" refers to one's original dreams and intentions that must be guarded and fought for even as the years go by, so that there are no regrets when you look back later, no matter the results.

Mellow yet spirited, "The Origin of Time" doesn't have a particularly catchy or distinctive melody, but the entire song is constructed and arranged very effectively. Endy and Hangjai's voices have similar yet different vibes that blend together well, especially in the chorus of overlapping vocals. The song builds up from a quieter start to a fuller band sound climax, ending with the final fist-pumping declaration that we can "create the universe in one second." This is a song to belt out loud for self-motivation on rough days.
