The Edison and Gillian Scandal

By Butterboom Writers  /  January 30, 2008

The biggest Hong Kong entertainment story of the year.


By now if you have eyes and ears or just an internet connection you’ve read/seen/experienced one of the biggest sex photo scandals in Hong Kong starring actor/singer/clothing designer Edison Chen (陳冠希) and Twins star Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐). If not, you can read it in English here (if you want to see the NSFW photos Google it).

Our take: the photos are fake! We’ve seen tons of these with American celebs to know when it’s been faked. All we can say is that we are finally seeing some local talent in Photoshop, unfortunately its for breaking the law, but hey, what else were you going to talk about during Chinese New Year anyway?

UPDATE 1 FEB: OK we know when we’re wrong, we’re 98% sure these photos are real now and that our buddy Edison must have forgot he had them on his pink MacBook when he took it into the shop to get fixed.

For those of you reading this not from Hong Kong, Taiwan or China – Edison is like our Justin Timberlake and Gillian is like our Mandy Moore. So imagine what would happen if photos like these leaked out in the U.S. And we now know these weren’t used for blackmail so we’re still awaiting more news.
