The sex scandal aftermaths thus far…

Bobo Chan, one of the Hong Kong female celebrities embroiled in the recent sex scandal involving Edison Chan had her wedding called off with wealthy stock market investor Phillip Kam. It was rumored that Bobo’s future mother-in-law was extremely displeased by Bobo’s implications in the scandal and gave pressure to her son Phillip to cancel the wedding. Bobo Chan already retired from the entertainment business earlier to get ready for her marriage. Who would’ve thought that this sex scandal would dash her dreams.

Gillian Chung of Twins was rumored to have attempted suicide twice already now since the sex photo incidence. She, along with the other allegedly involved females, have not appeared in public since the scandal. EEG, the record company of Twins, have denied these rumors and stated that Gillian is just recuperating from an illness. Gillian was supposed to appear alongside her ‘twin’ Charlene Choi at a Chinese New Year Eve event but was absent.  Charlene assures fans that Gillian will heal and be back.

Cecilia Cheung may be the luckiest out of these women since her marriage to pop star Nicholas Tse seem unrocked by the scandal.  The couple also recently welcomed a son into their family and Cecilia’s mother-in-law, Deborah Lai, had expressed support publicly.  She also denied any rumors of divorce between the couple.

More Edison Chan Sex Photos Released

By on February 6th, 2008 | Hong Kong Entertainment

The drama continues as more new sex photos were released on the web. These photos showed explicit oral sex between purported Hong Kong celebrities Edison Chan, Gillian Chung, Bobo Chan, Cecilia Cheung, and also Yu Chiu now. Many photos also included women who were not known public figures involved in sexual acts with Edison.

The catch-me-if-you-can poster released these photos yesterday – clearly flouting police authorities that they haven’t caught the main culprit yet – stating that there are more photos to come, including a promised 32 minute video of Edison and Gillian. He/she is quoted:

“Rumor: video will coming out soon, and also the 4th pic is fake
32 mins video of E & G.
Coming out soon.
believe it or not.
I am not in hk , so i dun give a sh*t.
the 4th pic is fake, she is a Jap AV
here u are
the video clip is in media’’s hands,
the co-worker alrdy got the copies,
cannot get thu it now, be patient just wait ”

The poster is aliased as “Kira”, from the Japanese manga/anime Death Note, who plays a cat and mouse game with the police. In the manga, the character Light (a.k.a. Kira – derived from the Japanese pronunciation for ‘killer’) is able to kill people by just writing their name in notebook called the “Death Note” and no one knows his true identity. Where is our “L” when we need him??

Edison has also been getting a lot of bad rap in this scandal. It has been rumoured that he was dropped from an upcoming movie and some online polls show that a lot of the public place more blame on him over the actual person(s) who posted these photos.

Many were also stranded at railway stations for over 40 hours in the freezing weather as no railroads were running and chants of “wo men yao hui jia!” (translated: “we want to go home!”) were heard from these stranded passengers who want to go back home and reunite with family in time for the Spring Festival next week.
