Elva Hsiao Supports Kai Ko: “Don’t You Dare Give Up”

Arrested for drug use last week, Taiwanese actor Kai Ko (柯震東) and Jackie Chan‘s (成龍) son Jaycee Chan (房祖名) will be detained by mainland authorities for 14 days. Numerous celebrities have come forth to support the 23-year-old, including his ex-girlfriend of two years, Elva Hsiao (蕭亞軒). Kai and Elva’s high profile romance first made headlines in 2012 and gained attention due to their 12-year age gap.

Elva wrote on her Weibo today, “Don’t give you dare give up, okay? One mistake will not dismiss the good things you’ve done. Your friends are all waiting for you guys to come back. We all still remember the good. Maybe the road ahead is shaky, but you will soon see the light that brings peace. God Bless All Souls. We will all support you!” Elva’s public support for Kai earned the praise of many netizens, who said she is forgiving and understanding.

Giddens Ko: “I am Very, Very, Very Sad”

Giddens Ko (九把刀), the director of the 2011 box office success You Are the Apple of My Eye <那些年,我們一起追的女孩>, the film that shot Kai to instant stardom, expressed his sadness and anger about Kai’s arrest through his Facebook.

“Even until the last moment, I had hoped that everything was not like what people were saying. I could not contact him and I could not find the information about his detainment at his official website. It made me anxious, scared, and very dreadful. Yet, because I did not know of his whereabouts, it left a bit of hope that everything was just a mistake. I kept praying that everything was not true. If I can, I am willing to give up directing for a lifetime to exchange for his upright behavior.”

Giddens continued to say that besides feeling disappointed, he also feels ashamed and angry at Kai. “I really have nothing else to say to Kai Ko. Sorry. I am very, very, very sad. Sorry.”

Kai’s good friend and costar in You Are the Apple of My EyeMichelle Chen (陳妍希), expressed her shock about Kai’s arrest through her Weibo. “He is an idiot,” she wrote.

Bolin Chen about Jaycee Chan: “Wish Everything Goes Well”

Before the arrest of Jaycee Chan (房祖名) was confirmed, Taiwanese actor Taiwanese actor Bolin Chen (陳柏霖), who is close friends with 32-year-old, gave his support to Jaycee through a Weibo post.

“I heard from the news that something happened to my friend. I could not contact him. If it is true, then he has definitely set the worst example for everyone. He deserves to be scolded. He deserves to reflect on his actions. However, while scolding him, I hope everyone will not forget the happiness he was able to bring to everyone, and the dedication and hard work he has done for his work.”

After the confirmation of Jaycee’s involvement, Bolin deleted his previous post and wrote, “Wish everything goes well.”

  1. Sad because Kai Ko had such a bright future ahead of him. He’s actually pretty good looking and can act.

    I find it kind of sad that Jaycee has been using drugs for 8 yrs. It just shows a sad cycle of drug usage. Someone introduced marijuana to Jaycee 8 yrs ago, 2 yrs ago Jaycee introduced it to Kai Ko…agh, pls stop spreading the use of drugs to friends/family.

    A moment of having “fun” can really harm your life, and in this case, their future.

    1. What is harming their lives is a society of ignorance. It’s ironic that people accept alcohol and yet think marijuana is a horrible drug.

  2. It is nice that their friends are showing support, but one should always follow the laws of the country they are in. Just because it is legal in one, does not mean it is legal in all. Breaking the law is still breaking the law.

  3. Ya..Marijuana not a big deal..but it is a beginning..they might end up try cocaine or heroine..taking drugs it’s like playing with fire..once you are not careful..got burn badly..

    1. wrong comment..supposedly comment on another article oops..

    2. Why is marijuana a gateway drug? Because the media continues to portray it as so? What’s the difference between alcohol being a gateway drug compared to marijuana?

      Please stop sharing disinformation like a sheep. Instead of spewing garbage copying word for word from the media do some research and educate yourself.

      1. The report from the Cancer Institute does not state conclusively that cannabis has antitumor properties; instead, it reports that cannabinoids, a compound derived (using either chemical or biological procedures) from cannabis did show some antitumor properties in a controlled test on mice.

        If read further, one would see that the report goes on to say that cannabis actually elevates the risk of developing cancer in human trials. All the report does is to make a very cautious inference of the “evil twin theory” in that if cannabis increase cancer risk then a compound derived from it with an altered chemical structure should have the opposite effect.

        Drawing sweeping conclusion from these scientific reports can be very dicey.

      2. Are we reading the same article?

        Where does it say in the article that cannabis elevates the development of cancer? Please read properly.

        Few quotes from the article that show signs that cannabis show positive affects against cancer:

        “In lung cancer cell lines, CBD upregulated ICAM-1, leading to decreased cancer cell invasiveness.”

        “As a result, a hypothesis that phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids may be useful in the risk reduction and treatment of colorectal cancer has been developed.[26-29]”

        “In addition, both plant-derived and endogenous cannabinoids have been studied for anti-inflammatory effects.”

        “CBD inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell lines, inducing apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner while having little effect on nontumorigenic, mammary cells.[19]”

        “CBD may also enhance uptake of cytotoxic drugs into malignant cells. Activation of the transient receptor potential vanilloid type 2 (TRPV2) has been shown to inhibit proliferation of human glioblastoma multiforme cells and overcome resistance to the chemotherapy agent carmustine.”

        “….leading to apoptosis of glioma cells without affecting normal human astrocytes. This suggests that coadministration of CBD with cytotoxic agents may increase drug uptake and potentiate cell death in human glioma cells.” !!!<—

      3. Yes, we are referring to the same article: A summary on cannabis and cannabinoids by the National Cancer Institute and reviewed by Drs. Donald Abrams and Nagi Kumar. The difference is that instead of reading the entire summary you seemed to have stuck in one section of the article where it reported ONE study had suggested cannabinoids (not cannabis) might have anti-tumor properties on lab mice.

        Below are two studies cited by the Institute in the article on how cannabis elevates risk of cancer:

        A pooled analysis of three case-cohort studies of men in northwestern Africa (430 cases and 778 controls) showed a significantly increased risk of lung cancer among tobacco smokers who also inhaled Cannabis.[5]

        A large, retrospective cohort study of 64,855 men aged 15 to 49 years from the United States found that Cannabis use was not associated with tobacco-related cancers and a number of other common malignancies. However, the study did find that, among nonsmokers of tobacco, ever having used Cannabis was associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer.[6]

      4. @Tarminator

        Thanks for pointing that out. I missed that section of the study and yes, CBD is not cannabis, but CBD is a compound that you find in cannabis specifically sativa and I think you will agree that sativa cannabis contain CBD.

        Regarding the relatively small statistical study, it’s difficult to determine between causation and correlation in studies like that. More human studies are needed and will be done now with gradual legalization of marijuana in USA, so we’ll see what happens in the next couple of decades.


        I suppose chocolate, grapes, etc that have harmful effects to dogs can also harm humans as well then? We are not dogs and cats.

        And why would babies smoke marijuana? lol that’s a ridiculous statement to make.

      5. “And why would babies smoke marijuana? lol that’s a ridiculous statement to make.”

        Not so ridiculous when 2nd-hand smoke is considered.

      6. @MW

        And you know 2nd hand smoking is poisonous how? Let’s assume your assumption is correct but cigarettes are already confirmed to be harmful, should that be banned as well?

        We can argue that cigarettes should be illegal and should result in JAIL TIME since it is already proven to be harmful to our health, right..?

        Open your mind a little, I’m not advocating marijuana usage for children or in front of children but adults should have the freedom to choose.

        I’m open to people sharing new studies about marijuana but I’m tired of people throwing their bias opinions about marijuana when they really know nothing about it.

  4. ” “He is an idiot,” she wrote.”

    Ahhhh the love showered on poor poor man….

    1. I know, don’t they usually try acting nice and fake even thou inside they call them losers? hahaha LOL..

    2. She’s just saying what most of his friends are thinking but not willing to say out loud.

  5. People are so brainwashed by rules these days they condemn others for breaking them without even questioning whether those rules really matter.

    Is weed extremely harmful? So much more than alcohol? People use marijuana all the time – for recreational and medicinal use. So if people approve alcohol, i’m really curious why marijuana users are judged for it.

    The only thing these guys did wrong was flaunting the use of this where it isnt welcomed – even if they dont necessarily have a reason for banning it.

    1. It matters if it is illegal when you were caught with it.

      1. Yes, like I said, they were just stupid for using drugs where it’s not welcomed. But is the drug itself that bad – bad enough to warrant it getting banned? I don’t think so.

      2. “is the drug itself that bad …?”

        Hello?!?!? Common sense says that any substance that is capable of making a person (like cancer patient) in pain “stoned” enough to not feel the pain “must” be associated with side effects (like a decrease in short-term memory, dry mouth, impaired motor skills, reddening of the eyes, feelings of paranoia or anxiety, etc.), especially when used long term (like 8+ years). Usage should be a matter of weighing risk vs benefit. Should a cancer patient in severe pain use it? Medical experts will likely say “yes”, which may be the primary reason for revisiting its legality. But, should any person use the substance for the fun of it? Again, weigh the risk vs benefit please.

      3. @MW –

        So…why dont you bring those statistics to alcoholics and to the liquor industry and ban them for consumption? I’m pretty sure people drink for recreational purposes way more than people who smoke. But hey, dont take my word for it. Go online and look up incidences of killed drivers and pedestrians every year due to alcohol and then preach to me about how bad weed is.

      4. Well said MW….
        @Moncheri, MW is just explaining why marijuana is perceived as bad, not saying it’s worse than alcohol. Anyone who forms an addiction to any stuff/habit to the extent they lose control of themselves can be considered bad ie sniffing glue, recreational drugs.
        You have to ask yourself why do you keep justifying the use of marijuana (other than for medical purpose)? Most people who try ‘new’ stuff think they can control themselves but if start feeling ‘edgy’ when they don’t get their fix it would mean the start of an addiction, be it smoking, drinking, gambling, whoring or taking drugs..

      5. @misssy –

        Im not even targetting MW. Its the hypocrisy of it all that aggravates me. People are condemning others forusing marijuana but you dont see anyone condemning ppl for drinking alcohol or smoking cig. And i bet, aside from one or two individuals on here and those < 21, most of you have drank or smoked before. Are you terrible people too? Dont judge others if you yourself arent so pure.

      6. @ MW –

        Most ppl who use MJ only use them occasionally, unlike ciggies which have a thousand additives that makes you constantly crave a smoke. Your fear-mongering without proper research doesnt reflect well on you.

      7. @Moncheri,
        Agreed, and if it were up to me, all other forms of substances (cigarettes, alcohol, etc.) should be banned as well. 🙂

        Have a nice day!!!

      8. “cigarettes, alcohol”

        The former is too big to ban (possible riot) and the latter the US did in prohibition time or something like that that gave rise to violent gangsterism.

      9. @Funn – yeah, but so’s pot these days. even without it being mainstream ppl are already in an uproar about not having it legalized. better it be dealt by the gov’t then by dealers who sourced it from god knows where.

  6. Jackie Chan’s son has always been ugly looking and not popular but it seems he’s not very bright either. He does look pretty awful most of the time, haggard and tired looking I guess drugs do that to a person. But this younger guy, instant popularity and this is the road he’s picked? Shame… really really deserves some time so youngsters should not followed your idols.

  7. This is a life time lesson for him. When you are hanging out with the wrong people – it can ruin your life. I think it’s so stupid that people are WILLINGLY using the stuff that will make them addicted to it.

    1. I think it’s so stupid that people that know nothing about marijuana claim it is addictive.

      1. What?:

        I can understand the people who are using it for medical reasons. You have your opinion and I also have mine, so don’t be a jerk ok.

      2. I was once taught that one joint of marijuana is as strong as a whole pack of cigarettes but not sure how true that is.

      3. Hmmmm. .. Those who are trying hard to convince others that marijuana isn’t that bad probably smokes pot cos they think it makes them hot or take kush cos it makes them feel cool. I’d love to get to know your kids if you have any now or in the future so that we can discuss their thoughts on the matter. Will everyone do it together in moderation as some kind of activity?
        You have your views and we boring safe people have ours.

      4. @ bizzybody –

        I speak for myself who is arguing for mj. I absolutely do not advocate using it, i’m very anti-everything actually. Have i tried it? Maybe. But im not going to encourage anyone to try.

        I just dont think this ‘drug’ deserves the hate that it gets and all because the govt says it’s bad. It’s sheep mentality. If anything alcohol is way worse for us – esp Asians since majority of us lack the enzymes to properly metabolize it and is a major cause of cirrhosis and esophageal cancer – but you dont see the govt banning it. If youre going to judge a drug, judge all drugs, not just one.

      5. Since this article has given rise to the debate over marijuana, I would like to submit some findings on the drug from the American Lung Association.

        Marijuana contains a potent chemical called THC which disrupts/distorts the normal function of the brain. It impairs short-term memory and motor coordination, slows reaction time; alters mood, judgment and decision-making, and in some people can cause severe anxiety or loss of touch with reality.

        Contrary to popular belief, marijuana smoke also contains cancer-causing chemicals just as tobacco smoke. There are 33 cancer-causing chemicals contained in marijuana. Marijuana smoke also deposits tar into the lungs. In fact, when equal amounts of marijuana and tobacco are smoked, marijuana deposits four times as much tar into the lungs. This is because marijuana joints are un-filtered and often more deeply inhaled than cigarettes.

        Marijuana also affects the heart. The heart rate is raised 20-100 percent shortly after smoking, an effect which can last up to 3 hours and put users at an increased risk of heart attack.

        Marijuana is often thought to not be addictive. However, marijuana dependence is the number 1 reason why youth in Colorado and the U.S. seek substance-abuse treatment. Youth are more likely than adults to become addicted to marijuana. About 4.5 million people in the U.S. meet clinical criteria for marijuana dependence.

    2. @ J.H. –

      It’s only addictive if they make it addictive. The people who do get addicted to it normally have addictive personalities, not indicative of the drug at all. Alcohol is the same way. Moderation is the key.

      1. Moncheri:

        It’s true that some people have addictive personalities, but why do we put ourselves in those situations when there is no need for that? Life is tough enough already – why do we do that to ourselves?

      2. Not everyone who has a difficult life need drugs and similarly, not everyone who uses the drug has a difficult life.

        It’s a choice.

        For anything that genuinely wrecks havoc on someone, i wouldnt recommend at all. But for weed, I make an exception. Do you know how much it costs the govt and the common taxpayer to crack down on weed since it’s so common these days? Like in the billions. Rather than preventing the inevitable, because when has prohibiting weed really stopped anyone, i think its better to use that money to educate the public about its pros and cons and let the public decide if they want to use or not. FYI – those who think educational prevention do nothing needs to see the stats on smokers in the U.S. – it’s been on a decline for many years already.

  8. Don’t argue. You think he only takes Marijuana?

    Don’t be naive. He has taken many other drugs.

  9. I agree with Bolin, he definitely set the worst example for everyone.

  10. Both Chen Bolin n elva hsiao must know abt Kai drug habit if he has been doing it for two yrs. especially elva, who was the gf.
