Taiwanese actor Chen Bo Lin, who is a good friend of both Jaycee Chan and Kai Ko, has been widely speculated to be embroiled in the drug case that is reported to involve at least 120 celebrities. In response, Bo Lin's company stated that the artiste is willing to cooperate with relevant authorities to prove his innocence.

After news of the drug case broke, Bo Lin expressed concern for his buddies on Weibo: 'Everyone makes mistakes. I pray for the best.'

Apart from taking up the Ice Bucket Challenge, the In Time with You star has since kept a low profile. Bo Lin, the ambassador of a Chinese green tea brand, was scheduled to attend a fan meet in Hefei, China this weekend. However, the organiser has pulled the plug on the event quoting 'unforeseen circumstances'.

The official announcement read: 'Due to unforeseen circumstances, the fan meet originally planned to be held at Hefei Anhui Grand Theatre on Aug 23 has been cancelled. We deeply apologise for any inconvenience caused.'

While speaking to reporters, a representative from Bo Lin's company said that recent reports and public pressure have taken a toll on the artiste's well-being. 'We hope the media will refrain from excessive speculation. Thank you for the concern,' he added.

Korean singer-actor Kim Hyun Joong has been accused of domestic abuse and assault by a lady claiming to be his girlfriend. An acquaintance of the woman claimed, 'They have been dating since 2012' and had no problems with their relationship until this May, when she claims to have been assaulted due to 'woman problems', implying that a third party may have been involved in their relationship.

According to Korean media Dispatch, she was hospitalised for two weeks in May after sustaining injuries to her face, chest, arms, buttocks and back after he hit her with his fists and feet. Two months later, she was attacked once again but this time more severely, with fractures to her right ribs causing her a six-week hospital stay.

The woman, who is yet to be identified, shared that from May to July, the vicious circle of him hitting her, apologising and her forgiving him has been repeated but she finally decided to sue him as the situation has since worsened.

Hyun Joong's alleged girlfriend has submitted evidence to the police to prove their relationship and the extent of her injuries. The police have yet to make a statement but if convicted, the maximum sentence he will face is seven years in prison and a US$10,000 (S$12,500) fine.

Taiwanese actor Kai Ko receives the highest penalty for celebrities and will be banned from China

According to Taiwan media reports, Taiwanese actor Kai Ko finally met his family members in the detention centre after his 14-day detention, his parents, brother and manager Angie Chai visited him yesterday.

Kai and his mother hugged and cried, while his father told him to take responsibility and face the matter bravely. The 23-year-old apologised repeatedly to those who were present and was sorry for letting his family, company, sponsors and fans down. Kai was also worried that his saga will affect movie earnings (Tiny Times 4) and the reputation of his company.

A Chinese character 'Zheng', which means upright, was written by Kai on the wall of the detention centre, a method he uses to count the number of days he has left in the detention centre.

In addition, The State Administration of Radio Film and Television of China has announced that Kai will be banned from the China media industry. Insiders revealed the ruling set by authorities to be the harshest for celebrities and may therefore end their showbiz careers.

It is said that Chinese movie Tiny Times 4, who features Kai as one of the male leads, will remove his parts in the film before releasing it in cinemas. As filming has already ended and Kai has a considerably large role in it, writer-director Guo Jingming has yet to make a response on this matter.

Co-starring as Kai's girlfriend in the movie, Amber Kuo clarified through her manager that she has not received any news and will continue to work as usual.

Besides the movie, Kai faced pull-outs from more than 10 endorsements including KFC China. Due to contractual terms, another chewing gum company will investigate the matter before deciding on Kai's endorsement.

On Wednesday, Japanese-Taiwanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro took on the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness and funds for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig's disease.

In the video, the 40-year-old did not utter a single word and expressed his thoughts via subtitles. His manager later explained that Takeshi used water from a dehumidifier for the challenge, so that clean water would not be wasted. With hopes that everyone would take initiative to care for the less fortunate in society, the actor chose not to nominate any celebrity.

At the same time, many artistes around the globe have also taken part in the charitable cause. Dressed in an extravagant fur jacket, Hong Kong actress Carina Lau was complimented by netizens on her poise, even after getting drenched by a bucket of ice water.

Another celebrity who gained widespread attention for the Ice Bucket Challenge is Hong Kong singer-songwriter G.E.M Tang. As the 23-year-old wore a white t-shirt, the bikini under her top was 'exposed' after she got soaked with water. The video on YouTube earned over 650,000 views in less than 24 hours.

Reportedly Wong Jing's daughter Ada Wong Chi Hom caught the eyes of director Lawrence Ah Mon (Lau Kwok Cheung), who invited her to make a film that required nude performance. Wong Jing was upset after finding out and blasted online, "Last week some guy thought highly of my daughter Chi Hom and invited her to make a movie. he stated that it will require daring nudity. When the silly girl got there reporters were already there, before she even agreed she has already been in magazines for several days. As a father, I don't object to being sexy because it is a part of the physical performance. Yet this move is obviously swindling through 'Wong Jing's daughter stripping'! Kid, I have known that trick since I was 8, go further away for your con. This time my poor parenting and you fooled you, I will let it go. If you try it again I definitely will treat you to crap. Mark my word!"

Wong Chi Hom yesterday mentioned this on her Commercial Radio interview. She said that she understood that her father was intense about protecting her and she felt it was very sweet. However, she felt that her father might have been a little excessive. She understood that he might have hard feeling, but she admitted that she worried he might have scared off other directors. She said that she never agreed to make this film and she did not meet director Lau Kwok Cheung. Was she ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) and Ko Chen-Tung's drug case is still under investigation. The detention house declined to make an exception for Jacki Chan and Joan Lin to see their son. Although when Fong Cho Ming's mother was rumored to be present when his home was searched, actually both Joan Lin and Jackie Chan were in Hong Kong. Cho Ming who would call his mother everyday vanished. They were worried that their son was kidnapped, never imagining that actually he was in detention for drugs. Both were shocked and heartbroken. Cho Ming yesterday was able to see his lawyer for the first time, but he repeatedly asked his lawyer about his parents' health and worried that he would affect his friends.

By the most conservative estimate, Cho Ming would have to be detained for at least 30 days before he would have a chance to see his family. Thus even as a delegate of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Jackie Chan still has not been able to see his son. He and Joan Lin could only form a legal team in Beijing for their son, hoping to be able to save him.

Last night Taiwan TVBS reported that Joan Lin did not find out about her son's arrest until Public Security informed her. However she still would not give up on her son and hoped that he would reform. The report even quoted Joan Lin's reply on the matter. She only very politely said, "Thank you for taking care of Fong Cho Ming. Thank you for taking care of my son!"

According to TVBS, yesterday a fb post from someone claiming to be Fong Cho Ming and Jackie ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

TVB alumnus Raymond Lam recently denied upcoming participation as a judge for ATV's Miss Asia Pageant.

 

As reported on Mingpao News, the actor, who appeared at the press conference of his new series "Line Walker" on 19 August, was confused when asked about ATV's Executive Director Ip Ga Bo's invitation to become a judge for the upcoming Miss Asia Pageant.

 

"That's so funny. I have not heard any news about this and have not contacted anyone about it. It might have been a mistake. There is no such thing," he said.
