Tse has produced a number of albums, known for their simple guitar riffs. He has also starred in several other acclaimed films, such as Time and Tide and Metade Fumaca and recently in films The Promise and Dragon Tiger Gate, both claimed to be breakthroughs in Chinese film history. He enjoys great success in Hong Kong, and also rumoured to have a range of girlfriends singers/actress Cecilia Cheung, Faye Wong, and Bondy Chiu. But Nicholas recently proposed to Cecilia Cheung and married secretly without notifying both their friends and parents.
Beginning his career with Mr Yeung (a friend of Patrick Tse), he slowly climbed the ladder of stardom, although tough at first he made his name through a numerous range of Cantonese songs, including:(Have to leave),(Remade Man). These songs are also widely sang in many other singer's concerts including Hacken Lee (Lee Hak Kan) and Eason Chan (Chan Yik Sun) which definitely shows the popularity of his songs at that time, and even in present tense. The one thing special about Nicholas Tse in Hong Kong celebrity life, was his revolutionary act. To begin with he is so far the youngest male singer to have held a full concert in the Hong Kong Coliseum, as well as being the first 'young singer' as in that time period which he first stepped into the spotlight many singers were usually in their 30s or even above, in other words he was like an 'experiment' as without him becoming the first success of young idols managers like Paco Wong will not have released Cookies (a group of nine girls) or Mani Fok in releasing Twins (Charlene Choi and Gillian Chung). He was a singer that believed, singers should be passionate about music and made very provoking comments in television shows, and also has a habit of expressing his emotions on stage by smashing his guitar giving him the name "Bad Boy of Cantopop" and "Pete Townshend of Hong Kong".
