should he be blamed for the pictures which were stolen by others? is his behavior to take photos of his sexual life with female stars punishable, or the guy who put these photos online? If think deeply, he and those sex partners were singles at that time, and he took photos with the admission of those ladies. no law regulates that a man can only have sex with only one woman when they're not married, and cannot take pictures during the process. it's all about the moral standards only. audience may feel sick when seeing their faces onscreen while thinking about those pictures. that's the only reason for their temporary disappearance. hope now people forget about their past and treat them as normal stars.


global times

Two years after his public announcement to "step away indefinitely" from the Hong Kong entertainment industry due to a sex photo scandal, Edison Chen has broken his silence, speaking exclusively with the Global Times about his plans to return to the showbiz world in full force. Chen also made his first public appearance in Beijing since the scandal, attending the launch last Tuesday of Adidas Originals' new line A039.

"With now as the best timing and me in my best state, I am ready for my come back," Chen said.

According to Chen, he will start recording a new album by the end of the month, with hopes that the first single will be released in time for summer. Taiwanese musicians including rapper MC Hot Dog and possibly Jay Chou, will contribute to the album, according to Chen, differing from his previous hip-hop-styled releases.

"The album is to reflect my thoughts and feelings over the past two years," Chen said. Despite confessing that music is not his true passion, he explained that he would continue to release albums because music is one of the few ways in which he can truly express himself.

"There were times that things I said in interviews were misquoted or misinterpreted by reporters or the public," Chen commented cautiously, adding that he can only deliver what he really wants to say to his fans and the world correctly and faithfully with the lyrics he writes.

He added that he will write most of the lyrics on the new album, but only in English and then his assistants will translate them into Chinese.

Chen also revealed that his new film would start shooting before the end of this year, which he will both star in and produce. The production will be his first attempt at producing and therefore "a huge challenge." He said that he has been talking with many directors and has decided to make a low-budget film.

"Of course I want to make big-budget blockbusters, but I am too young and inexperienced for that," Chen added thoughtfully, "I think I'd better start with small-scale ones and move on to bigger productions later."

Though declining to answer questions directly related to the sex photo scandal, Chen admitted that he is different from two years ago, before the infamous incident took place and almost ruined his otherwise successful career.

"I feel older and more mature," said the 29-year-old Chen, who used to be known for his bad-boy charm. He compared his change to the new line of Adidas A039 sportswear that was being launched, which has added more design elements to its previous pure sportswear collections.

"Two or three years ago, I was like the old line which focuses on one direction and is more obvious. I wish for the new me to be more sophisticated and mature."

Edison Chen is a Hong Kong-based Chinese-Canadian actor, singer and fashion icon. He is also the founder of fashion brand CLOT. In early 2008, intimate and private photographs of Chen with various women including actresses Cecilia Cheung and Gillian Chung were illegally distributed over the Internet. The scandal created massive public and media attention and resulted in Chen's absence from showbiz altogether until recently.

In Edison Chen, I see a MONSTER and I see EXPLOITATION.

No doubt, he and the ladies are all singles at that time and they can PLAY however they wish.

But that bugger, ONE guy did that to so many women.  Question is, did the women he seduced and sexually exploited for his sadistic pleasure know what he did or had done, not just to her but also to the other women who are her colleagues and friends; and his "best friend's (now) wife"?

If the women knew and willingly engaged in the trysts with him, then Ihat's fine since they are adults and all willing parties.  But it seems that wasn't the case.  The women DID NOT know he was exploiting them.  He never really loved them, he only wanted SEX from them.  If the women were telling the truth that they did it for love (not surprising at all), then he had CHEATED the women.


no law regulates that a man can only have sex with only one woman when they're not married, and cannot take pictures during the process. it's all about the moral standards only.


That's right, there is a limit to what the law can do and be an effective law.  Many things and the rest are really up to the PEOPLE in question.  His victims could have sued him but that would be tough and she/they would have to take the stand in court and answer many embarrassing questions.  Such publicity is no good for their career in the showbiz, and they have already suffered so much, in betrayal and career, after the exposure.  Enough!, they let him go and suffer silently (though angrily too), but that shouldn't be mistaken for their "willingness" to be exploited by him had they known he was such a cad; a scoundrel!

I am glad the Hongkong people are decent people who have low tolerance for this kind of irresponsible misbehaviour.  They condemned his acts and gave him the SHUN.  The Hongkong people have a HIGH MORAL STANDARDS, indeed.  They think for their future what as a people they want to be and be with.  It is also their way of protecting their children, who they aspire and how they should conduct themselves and be the future responsible adults.

Perhaps, that's the reason why his pictures were exposed.

I am thankful for the guy who exposed the pictures.  Yes, he breached the privacy laws and should be punished rightly.  But without the exposure, we will never know nor can tell the truth about a person, if he deserves our respect.  It is easy to CHEAT others, but once you are exposed it is the end.

Hope that's a warning to all.  How we behave affects others and will be rewarded or punished accordingly.

Too many jealous people making the bad comments

I believe the pictures were taken before her marriage.

Anyway, I don't like her very much; a bit of a junk to me !
