Hong Kong starlet Gillian Chung in sex photos scandal

Update: Explicit Link not for the underaged of Edison Chen photos gallery
Updated 02-Mar-08

Yesterday, the Commercial Crime Bureau detectives made a shocking breakthrough. Among the computer files of Edison Chen, they found a set of brand new obscene photographs never seen before. The females were not just the previously known Gillian Chung, Cecilia Cheung, Bobo Chen, Candice Chen, Mandy Chen, Rachel Ngan and Vincy Yeung. The police now have far more than the previous 1,300 photographs and dozens of female stars are involved.

Yesterday was the third day that the police spoke to Edison Chen, who went to the Wanchai Police Headquarters at 2pm and left at 9pm.

Previously, the people who had already been arrested had a total of 1,300+ photographs plus some previously unreleased video clips. The video clips depicted sexual intercourse among unidentified persons.

With the explanation from Edison Chen, the police have confirmed that 467 of the already published photographs as well as another batch of photographs not yet released were all excerpted from video clips take by a video camera. A small number of photographs were taken by a digital camera. Edison Chen has identified the females in those photographs and video clips.

Edison Chen was very cautious in his statements, as he conferred with his lawyer on every sentence that he said. This was why progress has been slow.

What did you expect anyway? There are 467 photographs out there already. They are either female-only poses, or else they involve foreplay between Edison Chen and some woman or the other. The photographs show up as a a series. That means that were either taken by a high-speed digital camera set to take rapid photographs, or else they were excerpted from a digital video clip. Regardless, it is hard to imagine that Edison Chen was only interested in photographic poses or foreplay alone. There had to be photos depicting full sexual intercourse.

As for why the other photographs or the video clips have not show up yet, there are unsubstantiated speculations (which are useless because they have not been supplemented by even the most meagre of evidence):
(1) the mastermind Kira has achieved his goal of extorting HKD 5 million from the interested parties (oh, HKD 5 million is too little money? How about HKD 7 million?
(2) the mastermind Kira has been located by the triads and exterminated with extreme prejudice

Hong Kong Actor Chen Quits, Admits Web Sex Photos
Chen, 27, who returned to Hong Kong from the US on Thursday 21-Feb-08, apologized profusely for the photos and said he would take an indefinite break from the Hong Kong entertainment industry after fulfilling his outstanding contracts. This is after admitting he took the raunchy celebrity pictures that showed him posing in bed with several other female entertainment stars.
``I am deeply sorry,'' Chen said at a press conference in Hong Kong today. ``I admit most of the photos being circulated on the Internet were taken by me. I would like to apologize to all the ladies and their families.''

"These photos were very private and have not been shown to people and were never intended to be shown to anyone," the 27-year-old said in a calm voice amid a flood of camera flashes from the hundreds of reporters gathered.

"I have failed as a role model. However I wish that this matter will teach everyone a lesson."

He added that he would dedicate himself to charity and community work.

"I've decided to do this to give myself an opportunity to heal myself and to search my soul."

Statistics over Gillian Chung's appearance at the TVB charity show to raise money for the victims of the snow storms in China.
As of (02/19/2008) noon, TVB received almost 400 complaints against Gillian Chung, of which 370 opposed her appearance, 7 asked that she not appear on any TVB program and 6 asked that no Twins songs be broadcast.

Meanwhile at the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority, about 1,900 complaints were received concerning the TVB charity show and the appearance of Gillian Chung in it. Of course, the program itself isn't indecent or obscene, so these complaints cannot result in any TELA action.

Previous complains & actions:
2000: Telecommunications service provider Sunday ran a commercial about a female ghost in a taxi which scared certain viewers. TELA issued an severe warning and the commercial was discontinued. 1,921 complaints were received.

2005: Joyce Zheng, the daughter of Lydia Shum, played Snow White in the Hong Kong Disneyland open ceremony show. The complaint was rejected by TELA as frivolous. 343 complaints were received.

2007: The RTHK program was criticized for being biased and promotional for homosexuality. TELA thought that the program content was unfair and biased and issued a strong advisory to RTHK. 22 complaints were received.

(Gillian Chung)Ah-Gil and (Charlene Choi)Ah-Sa singing Ah-Gil’s and Edison’s Theme Song “相愛六年”. It is Ah-Gil first TV appearance since the whole scandal. Many viewers were against Ah-Gil and demanded that her performance should be ‘cut’ off from television. Ah-Gil will be appearing in 西九龍中心舉行的馬術活 next Saturday. Already, a group of fans called the ‘Awaken Fans’ have expressed a ‘Letter to Ah-Sa’ telling Ah-Sa that they have been very hurt by Ah-Gil’s action and have decided to abandon Twins. Taiwan fans are also angry at Twins because they have not gone to Taiwan to promote their new Mandarin Album as promised.

18thFeb 2008Vincy Yeung Rejected Edison Chen Marriage Proposal

East Asia Music & Edison refused to set a date on his eventual return to Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong police and his management company combined forces to force a timetable on Edison’s return. But it was rumoured that he suddenly made a change in plan to go to Vancouver instead.

The media revealed yesterday that Edison Chen had been actually proposing to Vincy Yeung all this while in Boston that they should get married, not once but at least four times. He hoped to use the marriage as a base to turn over a new leaf and even sought to threatening slitting his wrists to “force” Vincy to accept. But following discussions with her family, Vincy rejected his proposal firmly.

It’s believed that instead of flying back to Hong Kong today, he has gone to Vancouver, Canada to help his mother move to another place (avoid the media glare) and also take temporary refuge for some relief.

His refusal to return to Hong Kong now stems from the fact that he could be hunted down by the triads upon his entry and also possible prosecution (victim -> accused) by the police for his involvement in the scandal. Edison has made some very powerful people in HK very angry. Vincy's father and uncle is said to have links to several HK triads and is probably not very happy about the whole affair

For many days, Edison has proposed many times to his girlfriend Vincy Yeung. It was to show that he has changed his ways. He even engaged in cutting (specifically his wrists) to threaten his girlfriend into marriage. Vincy refused the marriage proposals after consulting with her family.

Edison is the target of public angst. The sex pictures were leaked onto the internet on the early morning of January 28th.According to reliable sources, Edison left on a plane to Boston on that very day.

Full Version: Edison Sex Scandal: Alleged - Feud between Management Company - Edison's Father Owes Debt

The sex picture scandal is not stopping. A mysterious going by the alias “Kira” are leaking these pictures because he couldn’t get the ransom money. Also, Edison Chen father (陳澤民) had substantial debt was cited as the reason behind the scandal.It is said that the photos did not become publicly available until they fell into the hands of his father's creditors and were leaked onto the Net, the report said. There are also rumours that involved Hong Kong’s two largest artistes’ management companies, EEG and China Star, feuding with each other. It can be seen by the order of release of the nude pictures. The first female star was EEG’s Gillian Chung. Then it was China Star’s “traitor” Cecilia Cheung. Afterwards, it was Albert Yeung’s niece, Vincy.

According to Taiwan’s ETtoday online news report on February, the two companies had several clashes. People noticed that this scandal was directed at EEG and Albert Yeung. Edison had several roles: singer, idol, clothing store owner and the tabloid boyfriend of Gillian, Cecilia Cheung, BoBo Chan and others. He was also the son of a wealthy businessman, and boyfriend of Albert Yeung’s niece. The last two identities are key reasons to the sex picture scandal.

Maggie Q (李美琪) is latest victim
Edison Chen's sex video with America-born actress Maggie Q is allegedly leaked. The video reportedly showed a naked Maggie Q was lying on her stomach on bed while Edison Chen engaged sexual acts from her back. A link on Hong Kong Discuss Forum has already been killed. Right after Gillian Chung, Bobo Chan, Cecilia Cheung, Candice Chen, Mandy Chen Yu Ru, and Rachel Ngan, Vincy Yeung Maggie Q is the eight female artist involved in Edison Chen

Netizens reported today that a video of Edison Chen and Maggie Q involved in sex acts had surfaced on the web. It was rumoured that the sex tape showed up on a Hong Kong discussion board. Also a NAUGHTY picture of what seems to be American-Vietnamese actress Maggie Q emerged on the Internet yesterday, and netizens have quickly linked it to the ongoing Edison Chen sex photo scandal in Hong Kong.Hawaii-born Maggie, 29, who had started out as a teen model, starred in the Hong Kong film Gen-Y Cop with Vancouver-born Edison in 2000. Maggie Q was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to an American father of Polish, French Canadian and Irish descent, and a Vietnamese mother.

It looks like Maggie Q is yet another victim. The phoenix tattoo she is famous for, seen in Balls Of Fury, certainly matches the recently released saucy picture (top).

Even though her name came up early in the scandal, Maggie told the Hong Kong media last week through her manager that she would not give any comments because she is currently in the US and has not seen any reports so far.

But, she is slated to return to Asia next month to promote her new film Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon. It opens here on 3 Apr.
She stars in:-
2007 1)Live Free or Die Hard ,2)Balls of Fury, 3)The List
2008 Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon

Perhaps Edison can do his own explaining when he returns to Hong Kong by the end of the week.

Vincy Yeung (楊永晴), Edison Chen new victim of scandal video ?

Vincy Yeung, the niece of EEG founder Albert Yeung, is the acknowleged girlfriend of Edison Chen who has been dating her since 2005 and announced their 'official' relationship in his personal blog by referring to an anonymous girlfriend as 'V' in 2007.(Vincy is the daughter of Ricky Yeung (楊超成), brother of tycoon Albert Yeung (楊受成), the boss of Emperor Entertainment Group who is said to have numerous triad affiliations.)

During the summer of 2006, there previously had been photos of Edison and a young girl shopping taken by the media. From sources, this young girl is Albert Yeung's niece, Vincy. Vincy goes to an international school and keeps a low profile with her life. Up until now, she only appeared on the front page when going out to dinners with her family. The two of them are within the stage of passionate love; as their sentiment get stronger, Edison held Vincy's hand, and the two went to Causeway Bay for Japanese food, disregarding passer-bys. Afterwards, they even drove to Kowloon Peak. Because school has recently started for Vincy, her times of meeting Edison have decreased.

During the prior month, Edison was seen twice near midnight, driving his car and escorting Vincy back to her home at Kowloon Peak. The prior time that the media have photographed him in the same car is when he was escorting 2R's Rosanne Wong back to her home at Robinson Road. We can see that Edison doesn't mind being a driver when he's with his girls. His love also cannot be blocked; on his blog, he has numerously expressed his love towards 'V'. 'V' obviously refers to Vincy. On his blog, he frequently writes about 'V'. He gives her flowers, expresses his love through photos, and hopes to taste the luxuries of Japanese foods with her. The blog is full of love and sentiment.

On Taiwan Hsu Si-di & Kevin Cai's entertainment show the same year,2007, Edison Chen disclosed that he planned to marry Vincy Yeung and that his previous playboy and womanizing habits have stopped because of his love for Vincy.

Edison's Blog: Gillian Chung, Cecelia Cheung, Bobo Chen,Candice,Cathy and Rachel, Edison Chen current girl friend, Vincy Yeung is said to be the latest girl has her sexy photo posted up. Rumours also said Edison has been beaten up. Before that, 400 plus new photos leak out. That include more exposed photos from Gillian Chung, Cecelia Cheung and Bobo Chen videos. Besides, there are news said more photos will be posted and that include Jolin Tsai, Elva, Maggie Q and Joey Yung. Latest Update: Edison sent his PC to different companies for servicing not 1 According to Hong Kong media reports Edison Chen had previously sent his personal computer to more than two companies for servicing. Aside from those computer technician who are in reprimand by the police, there's also possibility of another group of people with access to these photographs. According to reports, those involved did not relate the circumstances surrounding the case to the police which made the police's job even harder in accessing the number of source involved.

The photos in question included:

* A girl resembling Gillian Chung (from the squeaky-clean group Twins) with breasts peeking out from her bikini and her legs spread apart. In another picture, a man resembling Edison Chen performs cunnilingus on her.
* A girl resembling Bobo Chan (Edison Chen's ex girlfriend) performing fellatio on him, with his love lollipop in full glory.
* A dazed-looking Cecilia Cheung posing in uniform in one picture, and nude in a bathroom in another.

In a meet-the-fans session, the singer from the Canto-pop duo "Twins" didn't deny the authenticity of the compromising photos of her and actor Edison Chen floating on the internet.Hong Kong female pop duo Twins attend the press conference Monday, Feb 11 after a New Year's Party with their fans. Gillian Chung (L) apologizes in her first public comments for the incident that has sparked arrests and a media frenzy.

The photos first started appearing several weeks ago on the Internet, and were initially dismissed as hoaxes.


They feature singer-actor Edison Chen with a string of Hong Kong starlets including Chung, star of pop duo Twins, actress Cecilia Cheung(Below left), and former actress Bobo Chan(Below right).

Bobo Chan seems to have been hit the worst. After having left show business in 2006, she led a relatively quiet life and was even going to marry her investment company director boyfriend Kam Chi Yiu (金紫耀). The marriage has apparently been called off and now that Bobo Chan is uncontactable, good friend Denise Ho (何韻詩) and ex-boss Nat Chan (陳百祥) have expressed concern.

Edison Chen Kwoon-Hei (Birth name Chan Hing-Wah, Born October 7, 1980 in Vancouver, Canada) Hong Kong movie actor, singer, idol, founder of CLOT Inc., and the CEO of Clot Media Division Limited.Chen had been romantically linked to all three in the past. Media reports say the source of the photos was Chen's computer, and the images were copied when he sent it in for repairs.

Chen apologized to "anyone who has been affected by this strange, strange ordeal." in video.

Reports are now saying that Gillian has attempted suicide following the scandal. And Cecilia's husband Nicholas Tse 谢霆锋 (who used to date Faye Wong 王菲), has threatened divorce, although his father Patrick Tse 谢贤 has since denied those rumours. These pictures which were seemingly taken right before their marriage. The paternity of their children is now in question as a result of Cecilia Cheung affair.

Fans of these celebrities are quick to defend their idols, while internet users protest against alleged double-standards by the police in arresting those accused of uploading the pictures.

About 300 internet users took to the streets Sunday, claiming that the police had failed to investigate other cases of nude photos released without permission.

Police have also clarified that it's not illegal to transfer obscene picture files to friends but putting them onto a public domain, is.Police also added that the nabbed computers contained some 1,300 racy private shots of celebrities, including six women, two of whom had yet to be identified. In the meanwhile, public sentiment appears to have turned against Edison, who is now accused as the culprit in the scandal. The Straits Times reports that in a 'Who's guilty in the photo scandal' poll on the Hong Kong Discuss Forum on Sunday, about 76 per cent of voters said the photographer was guilty and 12 per cent pointed to the ones who uploaded the photos. Police now need only get hold of Edison's computer to verify that he was actually the source of those pictures.

Nude pictures of Chung have surfaced before.
In August 2006, local magazine Easyfinder was slammed for publishing pictures that were taken secretly when the singer was changing backstage at a concert in Malaysia.

Hongkong based magazine publication, Easyfinder, published photos of gillian Chung of Twins changing taken in Malaysia. Being in GuangZhou filming ‘Let’s Steal Together’, Gillian immediately started crying and visuably very upset about it when asked about the photos and the possibility of the photos being published online because she is naked in the photos. EEG’s executive, Mani Fok expressed that she will get legal advice from lawyers and see if it’s necessary attempting legal action in HK and Malaysia.

The photo showing Gillian in a bra half-naked photos was published by HK magazine Easyfinder issue 761 (also put on their website), the photo appears to have been taken through a peep hole. To date the HK licensing authority TELA have received over 100 complaints from people enraged by this violation.
EEG gave a serious claim that they are extremely angry with this way of non-permitted filming because ever since this report came out, it has caused great disturbance and pain to Gillian and her family. The magazine not only refuse to abide to any professionalism of any kind, they take pleasures to reveal secrets in exchange for higher sales and greater popularity. It is a shame that this is happening to a civilized society where human rights are respected. An online petition has been started support Gillian among Twins Fans.

Gillian Chung Yan-tung has filed a writ against Easy Finder magazine for publishing photographs of her changing her costume backstage during a concert in Malaysia. Via womendiary.netThat photo has caused an outrage.

This incident shows how fake the Hong Kong entertainment scene is. Even Hollywood actresses

have learned not to brag in public that they're virgins and preach to their fans how to be a good catholic parent-obeying robot.

Thanks Edison for sharing these photos. The take home message is that Asian women need to learn to shave their hairy privates and that no matter how innocent they look in public, they're all naughty school girls in private :) How come they're all sucking in those photos?

That's an image that'll have a long lasting impression on the public and non-Asian opinion of interracial relationships with Asians - as Borat would say "high five!"

Until proven otherwise these women were not coerced and appear to enjoy the act. Of course they weren't expecting the public to see their privates but Edison was a known player - so whaddaya expect?

I have no sympathy for these girls, they're not victims, they're just stupid. It's their stupidity that has captivated a nation.

Lessons well Learned!!

As more and more lewd photos exposing the promiscuous behavior of certain artiste celebrities are uploaded and circulated in the internet community, teens and youngsters who have hitherto been adoring fans of those involved in the saga might be induced to think hard on whether their blind devotion and passion towards their idols may have been misplaced. Whether or not the parents of those kids are sensible enough to grab the opportunity to gently guide them out of their misguided belief that fame and fortune that celebrities so often represent are the only ends in life and whatever means to achieve those are justified, will be a defining moment for society. Somehow, kids need to be told about the ugly realities beneath the glamour of the entertainment industry, which this recent scandal has accidentally unveiled and blown up.

The female celebrities in the saga may not be the only ones who are regretting their conduct and foolishness (of allowing the photos to be taken at all). How would the scandal make their mothers and families feel? Wouldn’t they be feeling the same regret, disgrace, shame and anguish as their daughters, on top of remorse about ever letting their loved ones to pursue fame and wealth in the trade of no morals? Stories about aspiring starlets offering sex services to entertainment company bosses in order to gain a singing or movie contract are not uncommon. Promiscuity among artistes is not unheard of. Despite all this, they were still willing to let their daughters take the path of no return. Once the idea of selling one’s body to achieve fame and fortune is accepted, one will begin to have in the subconscious a low esteem of one’s body. The woman celebrities in question were most likely taking a careless attitude towards casual sex or having their sex photos taken for that matter. Perhaps they don’t love or respect their own bodies enough to care. If only their mothers had thought about the consequences, they probably would have had second thoughts about consenting to their daughters entering this industry.

Money and fame do come at a price. At the end of the day, it is up to the individual to judge whether the price to be paid over certain deeds is too much. Hopefully this saga will remind all mothers to love their daughters a little more and to teach them how to respect and love their own bodies more.

Another lesson that can be drawn from the scandal is that as much as casual sex is not condemned by society, to the extent that it hurts intimate personal relationships of perpetrators, engaging in it does carry possible adverse consequences, especially when it is made public. How would the photo expose make the boyfriends/husbands of the female celebrities in question feel?
