Edison Chan's sex scandal

Much has been said about Edison Chan's juicy news lately. The actors involved are now in the middle of a scandal as naughty pictures of their intimate sexual acts have somehow been leaked onto the Internet. The scandal over the photos has dominated headlines in local newspapers , the international news as well as the celebrity blogs the past week.

The scandal started after pictures were taken from Edison Chen’s laptop by a technician who was repairing it. I guess it's all about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. There were a total of approximately 1,300 pictures. The naughty images included Bobo Chan , Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi, Edison Chen, Gillian Chung, Joey Yung, Yu Chiu, Vincy Yeung, Yumiko Cheng, Mandy Chen, Rachel Ngan, Candice Chan, Jolin Tsai, Maggie Q and possibly more.

On 21 February 2008, Edison hosted a press conference in Hong Kong in which he admitted being the author of most of the photographs. However, he also claimed that the photographs were distributed illegally and without his consent. He publicly apologised to the actresses involved and also announced his retirement from the Hong Kong entertainment industry.
The way I look at it, Edison must be feeling frustrated, upset, painful and angry over the entire episode. I was just wondering whether those young starlets will survive or sink with him. Well, what has been done cannot be undone. It is sad indeed, but things move on, nothing stays the same anymore.
