Probe into HK pop star nude photos

29 August 2006. Bangkok Post

Hong Kong (dpa) - Hong Kong leader Donald Tsang announced Tuesday that a government review would be conducted into a magazine's publication of semi-naked pictures of a leading female pop star.


Chief executive Tsang said he would hold talks over the regulation of covert surveillance in response to the row over the sneakily-taken pictures of 25-year-old Gillian Chung.

Chung, one half of the highly successful pop act Twins, is suing Hong Kong-based Easy Finder magazine for unspecified damages over the pictures which were taken backstage during a concert in Malaysia.

The pictures of Chung were published on August 22 and show her fixing her bra during a costume change in Genting, Malaysia, less than a week earlier.

Tsang, speaking about the incident for the first time, said Tuesday he shared the public concern over the pictures and wanted to review the former British colony's covert surveillance guidelines.

He told reporters there was a need to "strike a balance between press freedom and privacy" and said he would launch the review in recognition of public concern over the photographs.

Publication of the pictures triggered an immediate wave of condemnation from entertainers, political parties, women's groups and media organizations in Hong Kong.

More than 2,000 complaints have been lodged with the media watchdog the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority and complaints have been lodged with police and an obscene publications bureau.

The magazine publishers, who have not responded to the furore or apologised to Chung, saw sales of the magazine rise by around a third and had to organise a second print run after copies sold out.

Chung is partnered by Charlene Choi in Twins, one of a number of top Canto-pop acts whose sickly-sweet pop songs sung in Cantonese are hugely popular in Taiwan and mainland China as well as their home city.

And here is the magazine page:

By British tabloid standards, pretty innocuous.
But well, in Asia...

It seems to have calmed down to a degree in the UK because of all the court cases for invasion of privacy.
Still bad enough though.

She actually just readjusted her bra, nothing else, as seen on the left side of the picture.
Well, I guess she's not the kind wearing a bikini on the beach...

Shes a pretty celebrity, she knew what she was getting into. As humans we deserve privacy, in reality you kiss goodbye to privacy. She will most likely accept a well deserved payment. Then hopefully shows us the rest....

It would be different if she had a hairy ass or something to hide, she is getting free promotion! maybe she owes the magazine money now??  ;)

Wasn't she cute crying like that because her dignity had been violated...  ;)

Back in the news again...

Edison Chen (陳冠希) is at the centre of a media storm after explicit photos allegedly showing him in bed with rumoured ex-girlfriend Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) surfaced on the internet.

I just don't understand this obsession with stars that let something slip. I started getting hundreds of referrals to this thread today, even though it's nowhere on Google... people are obsessed with this lame story. I just don't get it.

Any pictures?  :(

Wow...if what I found were them, they're some pretty serious photos...

It's a very serious story here in China.  Edison Chen's laptop with over a thousand explicit photos showcasing most of his girlfriends and ex-girlfriends either naked or fornicating.  For the virginal sweet angelic ladies like the Twin girl, it's devastating.  And I've seen some of the pics... they are explicit!  But China's doing a good job of sweeping most of them off of the net.

here's a little story with a couple of fuzzed over pics:

Link... but no image linking.

I've never seen anything like it... this thread is NOWHERE on the search engines, yet it's generating more traffic to a single thread than any other before. I can only begin to imagine how much traffic is going to sites with a higher ranking for these search terms.

The girls must be total morons for letting him take those photos. It's obvious they know they are being photographed. These days, could anyone actually think such photos would never find their way onto the Internet?

I love some of the blog comments: "OMG, she's so hairy! OMG, he's so small!"

"I admit that I was naive and very silly, but I've grown up now," Chung said

Was she far younger than now when the pictures were taken?  :(

She apologized to her fans for having such pictures taken of her (she does not exactly say it was pictures of her but well it seems to be pretty obvious some are indeed of her... )
Anyway, she should not apologize
At least not to her male fans, they probably do not mind.
And let me add, I'm not a fan of her... :(

She's part of that bubbly cute s#*t that is fed to the masses...
So much so that over the last couple of years a few pop singer girls
that wear no make-up, have short hair and wear the un-sexiest clothes
imaginable have been very popular...
so now that's a part of the pop culture here... both are nauseating...
I'll take a grown woman any day... and sexy to boot...

She's not exactly my type, but if I were single I wouldn't exactly kick her out of bed for eating crackers.
