Career[edit]

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. Photos of Chan performing fellatio on Chen 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. Eventually, Gillian, Cecilia, and Edison had returned to the entertainment industry, however, Bobo never returned. She had quietly left the industry and used the remainder of her resources to create and maintain a private business in jewelry.
