Bobo Chan Man-Woon is a former Hong Kong singer and model. She was also an actress in several movies and TV-series.

Life & Career[edit]

Bobo's first movie role was in 1999's Tempting Heart. In 2001, she debut her first CD, titled Shine. Between 2003 and 2005, she joined TVB and was featured in four of their dramas before parting ways. In between 2005 and 2008, Bobo reduced her involvement with acting and focused on other projects until the infamous leak of Edison Chen's scandal photos affected her career.

Photo Scandal[edit]

In January and February 2008, explicit photos were found online involving Chan and Edison Chen. Compromising pics of Bobo privately posing nude, performing a fellatio, and intercourse with Edison were leaked over the internet. The scandal also involved Gillian Chung, Cecilia Cheung, and others.[1] The photos badly affected Bobo's career and personal life: strong public scrutiny, cancellation of media contracts, ending all product endorsements in her image, and the end of her engagement. Bobo went into seclusion along with those involved in the photos for over a year in hopes to return when public scrutiny has lessened. Unfortunately, even after a year, it remained a permanent scar, constantly haunting their lives and careers.

Retirement[edit]

Eventually, Gillian, Cecilia, and Edison made a successful return to the entertainment industry, however, Bobo never returned. Bobo decided to leave the entertainment industry and focus on managing a crystal gem shop in the summer of 2009. In a small public ceremony with some entertainment friends and press upon the opening of her crystal boutique in North Point, she made it clear she'll be leaving singing and acting to start a more quiet existence to avoid causing further trouble to the people most closest to her. Since then Bobo has faded into obscurity as all reports of her has ceased. [2]
