The Life and Sex Scandal of Chinese Star and Streetwear Icon Edison Chen (Part 3/3)

3659 ratings | 1049382 views
WATCH THIS ENTIRE FEATURE NOW ON VICE.COM: http://bit.ly/1J4nxcQ In February 2008, Edison Chen (aka EDC), a Canadian-born Hong Kong pop star/streetwear entrepreneur, was involved in a sex photo scandal - a series of his intimate photos with various female celebrities got distributed over the internet after a computer technician leaked them online. While netizens were busily distributing the photos through email and forum, the scandal also led to the very first moral debate over celebrity privacy in China's pre-social media era. Before this, Chen was a cult figure to many Chinese youth who were born in 1980s and early 1990s - as he was possibly the only counter-hero icon in the Chinese entertainment industry for introducing hip hop music and street culture to the country's mainstream. After the photo scandal, Chen stepped away from Hong Kong entertainment industry due to overwhelming public pressure, and started focusing on his streetwear brand and more recently, art collections. Almost eight years later after the photo scandal, VICE China follows EDC on a 19-day shoot, revealing his business routines, reminiscing his influences from hip hop music, and talking about the irony of stardom in Chinese showbiz. After VICE aired this documentary in China, video view broke into 40MM in first week - people are showing full support to EDC, and no one's blaming him for being a womaniser anymore - again, the irony.

he's full of himself ! get over yourself bro !
Tommy Zhao (26 days ago)
When I was a kid I thought he was luck sleeping with other celebrities as the scandal being exposed. Now I realize he might had been messing with some more “powerful” people’s “pet” and thus was expelled from Chinese movie industry indefinitely. Anyway, I love his present attitude and it’s cool to see how he has transformed.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what he did. Lol damn, blonde moment.

Before you judge, understand both sides of the situation first and try seeing the point-of-view in both sides. With that said, if I were EDC, I would start a business that deals with the back-end of the entertainment industry. No matter how hard he works, there will always be a stigma on his name. I don’t see him ever getting back into starring in films. Maybe one day but it’s been nearly a decade... he does have a lot of knowledge in that field so maybe signing a 360 deal on a upcoming star and make him a prodigy in the industry to stay relative to the entertainment industry.

It’s crazy that in China a scandal can impact your career so much. Here in the states you almost get more famous lol. Mistakes happens and you learn. Edison, I’m proud of you. I’m glad that your still progressing. You are my first Asian crush and will probably remain my only Asian crush lol. Don’t focus on the negatively. It’s hard but you’ve done great. Good luck in all you do.

Honestly he didn't do anything wrong. He didn't force these girls to take the pictures and videos. He also wasn't the one who released them. All my dudes out there, you know we at least kept 1 vid of an ex or chick you banged.

🤨🤔🤨🤨😶😶😶I know this is old but ummm who is he and I'm pretty sure he forgot his meds, umm I dont remember seeing him in any movie, tattoo dude looking like he's full of it... you know he hired his friend to act like they were paparazzi 🤣🤣🤣
S Palabrica (1 month ago)
I look like I idolize him? Lol I'm not even a fan of him. Your stupid comment just irritates me that's why I responded. Girl clearly you don't know what opinion means. Did you read your comment? If that's your opinion, it really shows how insecure you are with his lifestyle. If you post a stupid comment like that, don't be surprised if you'll find someone who'll disagree with you.
Ericka Edwards (1 month ago)
Brown Gal you look like you would look up to someone like him lol I'm pretty sure you dont have an identity of your own that's why your so concerned when someone has an opinion, hes trying to hard to be relevant I'm pretty sure so do you 😂😂😂
S Palabrica (1 month ago)
Ericka Edwards lol he's sooo much more than you'll ever be. No wonder you don't know him and don't even bother. Its useless with shallow minded people like you, you don't comprehend well. 😂

tomchoi74 (2 months ago)
So he wants a "Lifetime Achievement Award" to prove he is more than a kid with fashion sense who makes musics, etc...." but he doesn't mention what are the things he did "more"? He is basically saying he is financially successful still so he should get the award...

aznnubbyboy (2 months ago)
Still so much hate for this guy LOL everyone just needs to drop it. Good guy bad guy who cares. People don't know how to separate a good actor and his personal life. In the end, he'll be more famous, and what he had done a decade ago still gets people talking about him. He's the one making money. The more you hate the more nedia he gets and the more famous he gets LOL jokes on all the haters. Why can't you just mind your own business and let him do him?
latinsizer (2 months ago)
I read into his sex scandal and all I have to say is who cares?! So he had sex with some girls and people freaked out uuuh lmao. Seriously did people think they were virgins? They handle the situation all wrong, if they were smart they all be having reality shows and making millions ala kardashian style. Oh one more thing, girls love douchebags and this guy is a perfect example. XD

Jhas Jhis (2 months ago)
woooow I previously thought he was just another victim of an unfortunate hacking, Be it his scandal revealed how sleazy of a dude he was but now I know he is BATSHIT crazy....i think he knows it too. Anger management issues, slightly schizo, neurotic, self absorbed, he either has serious mental health issues or is on drugs or both.... I really hope he gets help. I don’t want him to hurt others or himself, man. Ill pray for the lady that has to deal with him.
S Palabrica (1 month ago)
Jhas Jhis Lol your psych study with him is a piece of shit. I think your description is more like about you and not him.

So he was involved in a scandal that stagnated his career and I had to look in the comments to figure out what is was after watching him go on and on and on about his music and business for 75 minutes? WTF kinda "documentary" is this?! Please label these videos correctly -- as ADS.
