Gillian Chung talks sex photo scandal: Edison Chen wrote her a long apology letter on the plane

When the Edison Chen photo scandal made headlines in Hong Kong over a decade ago, I was 11 years old, somewhat perplexed by what I was seeing in our media. I am a fan of Gillian Chung, and I remember feeling it was odd that she had to apologise and endure so many professional consequences for doing nothing wrong. I wanted to say something about it, but I was an year-old girl, a bit too obsessed with pop stars. So I kept silent. I look back and I am heartbroken that she had to be persecuted by an entire society that is shameless in its victim-blaming. Years went on, and Gillian is now happily married with a healthy career ahead of her. I wish with all my heart that she has found peace after this turbulent period of her life.
She is a member of the Cantopop duo Twins , along with Charlene Choi. She initially grew up in a single parent family until her mother remarried when Chung was in high school, but also has a surname of Chung. In , Chung was contacted by one of the model agencies she worked part-time with when she was in Hong Kong. She became a contracted artist and underwent training before making her debut. The name was supposed to enhance her business skills.
Twins singer Gillian Chung has revealed that she, like actress Cecilia Cheung, bumped into an apologetic Edison Chen on a plane after the rapper's sleazy pictures of the women were stolen and circulated online. Unlike Cheung - who made peace with Chen on a flight from Taipei to Hong Kong on Mother's Day in - Chung did not know how to face her former boyfriend and asked to change seats so she would not have to sit behind him, the singer was quoted as saying. According to Sing Tao Daily and Nownews website, which cited Chung's interview with a magazine that was released on Sunday, Chen noticed her on the flight out of Hong Kong but did not disturb her. Instead, he wrote his former girlfriend a long apology letter on the spot, and had someone pass it to her later.
