Edison Chen Returns to the Hong Kong Music Industry

After his nude photo scandal in 2008, Edison Chen Koon Hei announced leaving the Hong Kong entertainment indefinitely. Although he later explained that “indefinite” did not mean he would quit the Hong Kong entertainment industry, a formal return date was never announced.

The day before, Edison appeared as a guest performer at Famma’s concert. At the celebration dinner last night, Edison revealed that he will release a new album in October. This marks Edison’s official return to the Hong Kong music industry!

Feeling Pressure Upon Return to the Hong Kong Coliseum

As the opening performer at Famma’s concert, Edison sang the song “Imagine,” but changed some of the lyrics. After his performance, he sat below the stage to watch the rest of the concert. Edison appeared engrossed and often stood up to dance. The audience seemed to welcome Edison ’s return and many teenage girls asked to take photos with him.

At the celebration party, Edison felt that Famma’s performance was qualified. Performing at the Hong Kong Coliseum again, Edison felt nervous and immense pressure. Was Edison happy on stage? He said, “I’m just talking.” Regarding the audience’s good reaction to his performance, Edison thanked his supporters and vowed to do his work well. Although he is unprepared to sing and film again, he noted the importance of everyone’s support.

As to changing the lyrics of “Imagine,” Edison denied that his intention was to ask the audience to accept him again. He emphasized that the will not test the audience’s reaction through another artist’s show. When his new music album is released in October, the audience’s reception will be apparent then.

In his new music album, eighty-percent of the songs are in Mandarin while twenty-percent will be in Cantonese. The album will be launched no later than October. Edison revealed that he will be writing all of the song lyrics in English and then hire translators to translate them into Chinese. “I have a lot of things to tell my fans directly, so I have to write my own lyrics.”

Did the release of this music album mark Edison’s official return to the Hong Kong music industry? Edison said, “I don’t know; did I leave before? I am not sure what it means to make a come-back. Let’s see how things turn out. If you say I am making a come-back, then okay, I’m back!”

Earlier, Edison vowed to earn $100 million (HKD) before getting married. He smiled, “I have to earn more money first before discussing marriage further.” Over the last few years, Edison realized that it is difficult to quantify how much money is enough. Money can not purchase happiness nor love.

Was Edison’s girlfriend, Vinci Yeung, aware of Edison ’s impending new album release? Edison laughed and said Vinci did not listen to his songs and did not watch his movies. He considered that Vinci loved him for being himself, rather than his movies and songs.

Jayne: Edison ’s come-back is inevitable. Honestly, I don’t really care about his scandalous past as long as he is able to deliver improved music and film performances. All the female celebrities embroiled in the nude photo scandal have moved on with their lives; it’s time Edison did what he wanted to do with his life too, rather than “hiding” in the United States .

Considering the uninspired wave of the latest newcomers, it’s good to have him back. I prefer watching him in films rather than his music though.

    I personally don’t care at all if he came back or not since I was never a fan of his. However, I knew that he would eventually after things cooled down. I highly doubt that he would retire because of that photo scandal. All of the other actresses have all moved on and have continued with their lives and careers, so he definately would. I am not sure if he is talented or not, but I can say that he is NOT a good role model for kids and teens…

    He should just go back to acting. Seriously, he cannot sing or rap, and his songs are basically crap, as per my opinion.

    Who was it that said he’s going to retired? Here’s a couple of lessons for you Edison:

    1) Don’t make sex tapes. Yeah, I understand that you’re just like normal folks, you have your urges, fetishes, and fantasies. However, one or two sex tapes is “understandable” but a sex tape with each girlfriend…that’s “psychologically unstable.” Ever thought of doing porn, Edison? It’s a win-win situation for you since you’ll get paid for something you love doing.
    2) Please learn how to be a man. Next time you’re apologizing and repenting your “mistakes”, please remember to face those mistakes in the country that you made them. How can you apologize and repent when you’re busy hiding away in Canada or the U.S.?

    I’m not a fan of any of the people featured in this scandal but I just thought that it was unfair that the girls were labeled sluts, whores, and stupid while he was “idolized” for doing the same thing they did. What a double standard society we live in.

      He wasn’t “idolized” to everybody else he was the wrong doing everything wrong, but he’s a victim too. He likes having sex with like a bunch of people, if he’s able to, why not? He wasn’t cheating, it’s not a big deal

    But even though he appears to be a coward to a lot of people, I think he’s received just as much shit as the girls – if not more. Granted, some of the girls were labelled as sluts and whores after the debacle, but look at them now; Gillian’s recently released an album and her sales can attest to the fact that she’s still as popular and strong as ever, while Cecilla has tons of director lining up for her to be in their movies. As least the girls didn’t have people sending them death-threats or throwing feces at them like Eddie did.

    And for the record, not a lot of people idolized him for sleeping with the girls.

    a lot of men sure did idolize him!

    ok so edison went through a few months, maybe a year or so of unhappiness and insecurity with those death threats but these girls involved have to face it for the rest of their lives.

    gillian even said in her interview, it will take true man to accept her past. \

    there’s no WB coming from me. he’s talent-less. hk’s entertainment circle is filled with rubbish already!

    “gillian even said in her interview, it will take true man to accept her past.”

    Like Nicholas Tse who in my book earned the medal for husband of the year for staying with cecilia?

    And why is he back anyway? Why not break into other markets elsewhere?

    To me he can come back but I suspect the whole camera and filming oneself thing? That’s a habit and like all habits, very very hard to break. Can’t say the new potential “photographees” have not been warned.

      I don’t think Cecilia cheated on him, the pictures were taken 4 years before they were posted online.

      I’m sure theres true man out there, but would be harder to find, is out there!!
      Gillian should’nt waste her time about the pass!!

    To Trang,

    He wasn’t idolized, not as far as openly so. He actually received death threats. Yes he went through hell too. To be fair to him, the girls voluntarily took the photos, he never leaked the photos deliberately for any gain or for whatever reason and the girls were dumb and trusting enough not to ask him to delete all contents. And just photos, since no videos were ever released.

    Trang, your comment cracks me up. It will definitely be a win win if he did porn LOL. Don’t care about Edison, never did and never will. He just strikes me as someone who is arrogant and snobbish and not talented at all. Everything that happens is in his hand, so no pity from me. Sorry, dogging tomatoes thrown from fans LOL.

    TO Trang,

    Gosh your comment really cracks me up!! LOL! I think Edison is better off doing porn. He gets paid big bucks for doing something that he really enjoys… I wonder why his soul called “girlfriend” even stayed with him? I personally would be scared to be with a guy like him. With all of the people that he has done it with, I wonder how many STD’s he has… I don’t even want to imagine it…

    Forget it Edison :P. Hong Kong has got another new wonder boy in the form of Aarif Lee since you left. This boy is a lot younger, good looking chap, a decent actor, can sing well, can write and produce songs, well behaved and will be potraying a historical icon in a 32million budget film soon.
