Ruby Lin Suing Hospital for Unauthorized Hymen Repair Ad

Ruby Lin Suing Hospital for Unauthorized Hymen Repair Ad thumbnail

After discovering that her photo was used online in an illustration of a hymen repair surgery, Ruby Lin (林心如) is suing the Beijing Greene Hospital for copyright infringement. The trial began yesterday morning in the Court of Chaoyang.

Ruby believes that a popular actress as herself represents excellent marketing value as a spokesperson. In July of this year, Ruby discovered that  in one of their online articles, the Beijing Greene Hospital, had used her image for the illustration for their hymen repair surgery service without her permission.

The copyright infringement has already lasted for 2 years, and Ruby believes her reputation was seriously damaged.

Yesterday morning, Ruby entrusted two lawyers to appear in court. Ruby is requesting damages for the use of her image without her consent, and is suing for monetary damage. In addition, Ruby expects an apology. Based on accepted celebrity spokesperson fees, the lawyer said she will be suing for $500,000 RMB, plus $100,ooo RMB for mental distress. The lawyer said, “Ruby will never appear in this kind of advertisement (hymen repair surgery). Even if money is offered, Ruby will turn it down.”

During the trial, the Beijing Greene Hospital claimed that although the website has their name on it, it is not affiliated with them. They claimed that they have never administered nor accessed the site.

      “Ruby Lin Suing Hospital for Unauthorized Hymen Repair Ad”

      I laughed so hard at the title, more so with the various headlines about HK artistes claiming to be virgins, etc and my tunnel vision reads “Ruby Lin Suing Hospital for Unauthorized Hymen Repair” and I was like woahhhh what sort of a hospital will do that?!

      Very funny! And Ruby is right to sue!

    2. june says:

      I’m seeing a trend in recent posts…..

    3. Nicole says:

      I can add this to my list of type of news an artiste should aim for when wanting to get on the headlines.
      – Porn loving
      – Think about sex everyday
      – Car shaking
      – Virgins
      Choose one.

    4. Veejay says:

      But she didn’t do it in the 1st place, it was the hospital who use her pic for Ad.. so it can’t be consider as publicity right???

      • Veejay says:

        btw, she looks gorgeous in the above pic. she sure looks younger than her age.

      • Funn Lim says:

        True Veejay. Like I said she is right to sue. And no one wants such a publicity like male artistes certainly doesn’t want to be seen to endorse super small size condoms.

        • Veejay says:

          Sorry Funn, my comment was actually refers to Nicole, I understand Nicole has added the Repair Hymen into the publicity list frm car shaking to virgins.. but i think in Ruby’s case, she didnt publicise it and it was rather the hopsital’s fault unlike those tvb fadans and siusangs who admitted they r virgins and porn watching and etc.. as for TY’s case, I wont blame the reporters cuz if she slept on Him’s lap, teh whole mess won’t happen.. which i consider that is part of her fault.

        • Veejay says:

          *if she didnt sleep on Him’s lap*

        • Nicole says:

          Nah, I mean for other not-so-popular artistes who are aiming to get on the headlines. They can try one or all of the above choices for free publicity!

        • Veejay says:

          Txb is really going insane with all these revealation LOL.. The virgin declaration was the most suspicious one.. I dont believe they are all still virgins..esp Christine Kuo lol.

        • Kidd says:

          Why especially Christine Kuo?

        • joanne says:

          simply because Christine is so sweet and so lovable among all the rare virgins available in hk.

        • Kidd says:

          @ joanna

          I was asking Veejay why she doesn’t believe all are still virgin especially single out Christine Kuo.

    5. sushiroll says:

      whats hymen repair??????

    6. Cloud says:

      I wonder do men even know how hymen looks like when they examine their partner’s genital. Or do they just take them to see a gynecologist and have the doctor confirm that the hymen is still intact?

      • Funn Lim says:

        You can’t actually see it since you know it is inside? I don’t think even women can see it. But a doctor can probe and of course by probing you can feel it.

      • Nicole says:

        I don’t think they examine their partners’ genitals, unless they are the type who gets their doctors to issue a certificate of virginity/chastity or something.
        It may be more like ancient china where they expect to see the blood on the bedclothes the morning after? LOL

      • Gar says:

        Generally I don’t think men will know what to look for if they do examine on their own, as honestly speaking, how many of us know what it looks like anyways if we were to look? We only know what it generates after the “deed” has been done.

    7. meia says:

      Once the CHERRY is popped, no turning back!

    8. Photo fix says:

      Thanks for this wonderful post.Looking for old photo restoration? Are you looking for a unique gift for that special occasion?We have years of experience in Fine Art, Photo Restoration, Retouching and photography.

    9. HeTieShou says:

      I wonder why they even used her photo?? She is not that popular.

      • Funn Lim says:

        She is THAT popular.

      • Nicole says:

        You seem to put down the popularity of people you don’t like. Ruby has 18mil fans on weibo, and is constantly on the top of the most discussed artistes on baidu.
        Maybe not the MOST popular, but among the top 10-20 female actresses? She’s definitely there, even though I still don’t like her acting.

        • star says:

          Wow, that’s a lot! I’ve never heard of her before and thought she was just a newcomer.

        • KD says:

          She is from Taiwan right? I think she is cute but her acting is not that great.

        • Nicole says:

          @Star do you watch china series? Ruby is always leading in them and even produced her own series, so she’s definitely not a newcomer :P

          @KD yes she’s from taiwan. I don’t like her acting either. She hasn’t improved much even after 15 years !

        • star says:

          Very few haha. Probably the reason. :D

        • Nicole says:

          @Star maybe you can watch Mei Ren Xin Ji that stars Ruby
          Because there’s sammul and myolie in it too
          And they look good in it ;p

        • Funn Lim says:


          You must be young then! She was a sensation together with Vicki Zhao back in Huan Zhu Ge Ge time. She was very very young. Died down a bit and now resurface back again. She was once extremely popular, now she is back to very popular.

        • star says:

          Thanks for the recommendation. :D Maybe I’ll watch it during my holidays. It was broadcast on Starhub earlier but its title sounds like BTROC which puts me off cause I don’t really like palace scheming type of dramas.

          Oh! I didn’t know she was inside even though I chased after the drama and even bought their stickers which were available everywhere then (couldn’t understand why I like them so much now) but I was very young then, around 10 I think. The only actor inside that I know is Vicki Zhao because my mum mentioned her a few times.
          So Ruby Lin is Ziwei?

        • star says:

          Thinking back, I really find the drama quite lame. What kind of father is the emperor by always wanting to chop off his children’s heads for some minor things (I suppose, forgot the story). It’s not like they murdered someone or whatsoever. For all the sequels, it is just repeating the same plot over and over again.
          I can still visualise the scenes with them caged up and paraded through the streets or with the wooden head lock and then someone will surely come and save them.

        • Funn Lim says:

          Yes she was ziwei. HZGG was great, the rest are rubbish.

        • Nicole says:

          haha, it is very similar to BTROC. There is the very sickeningly good character, Charmaine’s/Ruby’s character. And the nauseously evil character you can’t believe others can’t see also exist!
          But the series is nice to watch for the realistic sets, and luxurious but not gaudy costumes.

        • skinnymocha says:

          ^ Haha, at least Ziwei had a personality. Sam Ho was way too preachy…

          Ah, my favourite thing about HZGG was the father-daughter relationship! Okay, the dragging them off to be executed time and time again part was pure melodrama, but aside from that, I found their moments together (especially Xiao Yan Zi and the Emperor) very sweet.

        • Nicole says:

          @skinnymocha, Oops I was comparing BTROC to Mei Ren Xin Ji bc star said they looked similar :P Not HZGG. I loved that show. Haha

        • Funn Lim says:

          Maybe MRXJ did copy a bit from BTROC since it is a YZ production but I don’t see any huge similarities other than best friends turning enemies which is by the way like DJG which BTROC copies from. MRXJ by itself is even more dramatic and sometimes harsh and to me is a much better show than BTROC. Per episode, at least 1 person must die and usually a woman.

        • skinnymocha says:

          @Nicole: Ah, sorry~! I only watched MRXJ for the Myolie/FSF part because the rest bored me quite a bit… I do prefer Yang Mi in serious roles as Gong and Chinese Paladin 3 were huge turn-offs.

        • Nicole says:

          Ruby is quite a monotonous actress, so I found MRXJ quite boring as the story mostly revolved around her. I think MRXJ did copy somewhat from BTROC, but Yuzheng likes to add in tons of frivolous details and subplots.

          @skinnymocha haha, those are the parts I watched intently too. They are so cute!

        • Funn Lim says:

          I personally think MRXJ is much better than BTROC. There aren’t too many unnecessary subplot except for that Myolie-William Feng part which is unnecessary. I hate Yu Zheng but MRXJ has a little Yu Zheng in it but not too much.

      • Hannah says:

        Agreed with Funn and Nicole. Ruby Lin is popular. She may not be as popular as before, but she’s still popular!

        • HeTieShou says:

          I guess being popular has nothing to do with good acting skills. But hey that has been the case for many others and has been that way for awhile.

        • Funn Lim says:

          Nobody says she is a good actress being equal to she is popular. But she is popular.

        • Nicole says:

          Why will anyone think popularity equate acting skills. Fahrenheit can’t sing. but they are popular. Big hoopla?

    10. joanne says:

      I believe 100% that they are still virgins. The reason is because they all are pure christians (christians gals are prohibited to lie so they don’t lie)

      • star says:

        ” The reason is because they all are pure christians (christians gals are prohibited to lie so they don’t lie)”

        I don’t believe that there is anyone who has not tell a lie before, it’s just the severity of the lies they made. Even denying some rumoured bf/gf when they are in fact together is considered as lying, so obviously these ladies lied before.

      • irene says:

        Hmm..I know one ex colleague who is a self professed Christian.

        Punched a man who tried to tackle his wife in church. Acted like a family man.

        But behind back, he asked another colleague whether he is interested in prc women. Can ‘bao’ one for $500.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Sorry but celebs are known for lying through their teeth and just because they are Christians does not mean they are virgins.

    11. Hannahh says:

      poor Ruby. She def have right to SUE!

    12. joanne says:

      How can ruby sue? If she does, dat clearly is a genuine admission of her wrong shameful doing and the whole world will be laughing at her!
