Taiwan star Ko Chen-Tung was arrested for marijuana in the Mainland on August. After his release he returned to Taiwan. Yesterday the Taipei prosecutor's office called him to court for the second time. He said during his interview that the prosecutor permitted him to pay for his own treatment. He said, "I can't have another violation, I know that too."

Ko Chen-Tung yesterday with his management company team went to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office for the final trial. The scene in comparison to the chaos last time had more understanding between the media and the prosecutors, without any pushing and bumping. They silently permitted Ko Chen-Tung to step into the office for the trial. With mixed and heavy emotions, Ko Chen-Tung quickly went to the hearing.

Ko Chen-Tung said that the prosecutor in court asked him to confirm the test result and agreed for him to pay for his own treatment. With the result and his own testimony he was not required to supervised rehabilitation. This meant that Ko Chen-Tung did not have to be held at the rehab center for treatment and would only be required to return to the hospital for scheduled urine tests. As long as he did not have another violation during the period he would not have a record, which was the biggest gift for the 23 year first time offender.

He continued, the court atmosphere was very good. His eyes were blood shot because he has been tested since Monday to now, but now he got up and went to bed earlier ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Hong Kong "Occupy Central" movement continues in various regions, as police and civilians conflicts continuously erupt. Yesterday morning the police ordered several hundred police officers to take back Lung Wo Road, which protesters occupied earlier. A protester was subdued and cuffed with plastic zip ties. 7 officers were suspected of taking him to a dark corner and beat him over 4 minutes. The media caught it on video and suggests police brutality. Calls for the police to investigate have risen. Artists Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Denise Ho Wan Si, Stephen Au Kam Tong are upset. Chau Sun angrily says, "Does the police still have the trust of the people of Hong Kong?" Priscilla Wong Chui Yu is shocked and saddened. Violence is not permitted. She hoped the police would give an answer to the people of Hong Kong. Wong Jing supported the police, claiming that someone tossed urine on the police on duty. (The Civic Party claims it was water).

Wong Chau Sun posts on facebook, "The police has the right to enforce the law, but does the police have the right to drag people to a dark corner and brutally beat them?......" Then he posts, "Councilman Leung Ka Kit, you says that the police has to have the trust of Hong Kong people, do you feel that the police still can get their trust?......."

Hong Kong actor Kent Tong recently revealed that he will not be attending Barbara Yung's 30th anniversary memorial service.


As reported on On CC News, the actor, who was blamed for the actress's suicide back in 1985, said that he would not want to steal the focus from Barbara's family due to their past relationship, and that he prefer to move on and focus on his own family.


"I have thought about Barbara so for so many years, but continuing to do so will be unfair to my wife," he said.


Kent added, "There are so many things that happen in one's life. And while it would be impossible for me to erase what happened in the past, it's also important to focus on what I have right now."


The actor, who is making his comeback through TVB's upcoming series "Lord of Shanghai" alongside Wayne Lai and Anthony Wong, stated that the tragedy has helped him gain a more positive outlook on life.


Kent also dismissed past rumours saying that he left TVB due to the negativity surrounding Barbara's death, saying that the real reason has nothing to do with the tragedy.

 Hong Kong singer Khalil Fong has recently dismissed rumours of romance with fellow singer, Fiona Sit, saying that they are not more than close friends.


As reported on China Topiz, the singer, who was in Singapore for his Soulboy Lights Up World Tour recently, laughed when it was mentioned that Fiona called him her 'bosom friend', and said, "That sounds about right."


The Mandopop star stated that while he does spends a lot of time with Fiona, he does not know all of her secrets like it was reported in the media.


"Everybody must have some secret that they cannot reveal. I don't think she would share her deepest secrets with me, or anybody for that matter," said the singer.


Khalil added that though he finds it funny that his fans would always urge him to date the Cantopop singer, it also gets annoying at times.

Lam Chi Wah confident with "Tiger Cubs 2"

With the clash between the police and the Hong Kong students right through the Occupy Central protests, the major concern for TVB should be that the portrayal of righteous police in its new series, "Tiger Cubs 2", might rub some people the wrong way.


However, producer Lam Chi Wah believed that the viewers are smart enough to enjoy the series without comparing it to what is currently happening in Hong Kong.


As reported on Mingpao News, Lam stated, "I don't think people will have some negative emotions watching the heavily armed characters in the series. Viewers are rational and will understand that the show is just for entertainment purposes."


He continued, "The show is about the three-dimensional look [of the Hong Kong elite paramilitary officers from the Hong Kong Police Force], not a general showdown between good and evil. Both parties, the SDU members and the criminals, have descriptive backgrounds. It's not just an action series, but it also has a psychological side to the story. There are subplots about the friendship among the members as well."


Asked if there would be scenes involving tear gas, a subject which has been considered sensitive to protesters after experiencing such occurrences last week, Lam said that "Tiger Cubs 2" has similar equipment, though it has a different ability to cause loud noise and blinding light that targets brief visual and auditory disturbance. However, it ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
