These are the times it's difficult not to wish that Anthony Wong was really like some of the notorious characters he played in decades past! :lol: Not that I'd want to see the guy hurt, but if even the threat of Anthony Wong keeps me from seeing another Edison Chen "performance" for a dog's age, I'll be a happy boy.

Wow! Just noticed one of our DB photos of this actress appears to be some kind of papparazzi shot of her in a rather dismal state. Should that be there?

Only glamour shots allowed? :D

As you can see, I submitted it, probably a year ago. I believe it's her police 'mug shot' when she was remanded into custody. Delete it if you think it's outside the line. Frankly, I don't know what's inside/outside the lines (short of nudity, as outlined by Mr Booth two years ago, though we seem to get pretty close to that line. :roll: ) I've recently noticed that other image submissions in our db have been expunged without notice, discussion or explanation (and not only mine). Admittedly, I need a refresher on what should or shouldn't be in our db. Sort of feel like I'm working in a vaccuum, here, and I'm expending needless effort at the same time. :cry:

In all honesty, it doesn't really matter to me. I have no problem with it being there (of course, I don't mind certain racy shots either!). I just wasn't sure if it really was what it looked like it was! Thought maybe it was a random upload. :) Don't know who's deleting photos as they see fit, but that's definitely something that should be run through the forums first. :?

Is there an English translation of the article or a url for a bit more regarding the story behind this? As Brian mentions, AW certainly plays very tough, sometimes out of control characters but does Edison really fear him that much?

I ran the text through Babelfish and Google Translate earlier today and it does seem to suggest something about Chen fearing Wong, but the details seemed to get lost in the wonky translation. :(

re: Edison

Don't quote me on this, but I vaguely recall that Anthony Wong is Edison's godfather or something like that. This from culling 'news' from Chinese sites (and my faulty/questionable translations, no doubt 8) ).

At17 with Rebecca Pan... damn! I wish I could see that. Maybe they'll do an album...

Here's another article... not sure if you posted it already.
