Who is the Father of Pauline Chan’s Son?

By on October 7, 2012 in NEWS, Scandals


When late Hong Kong actress, Pauline Chan (陳寶蓮), committed suicide by jumping from the window of her Shanghai apartment in 2002, she left behind a 15-week old son. For years, the media could not figure out who the father was, until recently. Now at 10 years old, Pauline’s son is beginning to resemble more and more like the late Taiwanese tycoon, Huang Jen Chung (黃任中).

When Pauline Chan turned 17 years old in 1990, she joined the Miss Asia Pageant hosted by Hong Kong’s ATV station. Alhough Pauline failed to win a title, her busty figure gained the attention of Hong Kong’s soft porn industry. Pauline eventually became a popular local sex symbol, and appeared in more than 25 Hong Kong Category III films.

Huang Jen Chung is the Father?

In 1992, Pauline met Taiwanese tycoon Huang Jen Chung, who was 33 years her senior. When Pauline was rumored to be the third party in Huang’s marriage, Huang stepped up to defend her and explained that Pauline was just his goddaughter.

However, Huang and Pauline’s intimate behaviors were eventually exposed by the media. Huang later had to clarify that he and Pauline “had slept on the same bed over 50 times, but nothing sexual happened.”

In the late 1990s, Pauline had a career meltdown and took a habit on taking drugs and frequenting nightclubs. It was reported that Huang was very heartbroken of her behavior, and decided to send her to Great Britain for college, hoping to “tame her fire.” However, Pauline dropped out of school due to academic probation, and spent all of her money on other commodities. This angered Huang, and he decided to end their relationship.

In 1999, Pauline went to Taiwan to beg Huang to get back with her, but he refused. Pauline jumped to her death on July 31, 2002, from her 24th floor apartment window. She was 29 years old. Pauline left a suicide note, which mentioned postpartum depression as a reason for taking her own life, and gave her blessings to Huang. She also asked everyone to seek her son’s father. Huang was devastated by Pauline’s death, and in a 2002 interview with the Taiwanese media, he admitted that he had been sleeping every night with a portrait of Pauline placed on his bedside drawer. Huang passed away in February 2004 following a long battle with diabetes. He was 64 years old.

At the time, the father of Pauline’s son was rumored to be a 25-year-old disc jockey from Taipei. However, no one was able to contact him. Now, 10 years later, the Hong Kong media is beginning to speculate that the father of Pauline’s son may actually be Huang instead, for his facial features resemble the late socialite closely.

Pauline’s Son Cared by Faye Wong’s Manager

Pauline’s son was adopted by Faye Wong’s (王菲) manager, Huan Jie (寬姐), who had known Pauline for over ten years. After her death, Huan Jie immediately adopted the 15-month-old boy, allowing the infant to survive under the odds and grow up with maternal love. Huan Jie took great care of him throughout the years.

Since Pauline’s son was born prematurely, he was often sick, and when he was a few years old, he was contracted with serious pneumonia. Huan Jie went to great lengths to provide for her son’s medical fees. Allegedly, Faye Wong also helped out in the medical costs, and provided for his educational costs as well.

Recent reports indicated that Pauline’ son does do not do very well at school, and is slightly rebellious. Huan Jie once posted on her Weibo, “Today, my son skipped school but was discovered by his teacher. She took him back and asked him for an explanation.” Her son’s witty response to the teacher’s question was, “Mom didn’t have time to eat breakfast with me this morning. She also didn’t say that I have to behave well today.”

The single Huan Jie is also the manager of Taiwanese actress, Cheryl Yang (楊謹華), singer Faith Yang (楊乃文), and a prominent film and concert investor. As a result, Huan Jie has little time to spend with her son. However, she will often bring her son to concerts and film premiere events, and will try to free her weekend schedules so she can spend more time with him.

    Tragic set of circumstances…we can start to see that her child is having problems adjusting without her biological mother. It is unfortunate that her lifestyle and career choice lead to her demise.

    This is sad but at least her son was adopted by a good person that actually took care of him. There are many other children that grew up under even worse circumstances and still managed to live a nice and successful life. It just depends on each individual, the guidance they get,and many other cirumstances as well as their personal choices in life.

        Too bad his estate did not provide for the upbringing of the child.

        I agree and if the child was is son, that is sad that he was unable to inherit his late father’s estate. However, looking on the bright side, it could have made him a stronger and more independent person. I agree with Fox that he is probably really lonely.. I feel bad for him that he lost both of his parents at such a young age.. Very sad indeed…

        It’s a double standard. He could have married an average looking emotionally stable woman,but unnatractive men want the young beauties despite personality disorders.

      It’s sad indeed if the son looks like his rumoured father instead of his late mother. I think Pauline is beautiful even though her looks are more on the sultry, seductive type, and I think in those times, plastic surgery isn’t that common, so her assets are prolly all real & not plastic.
      Such a waste for her to end her life so young and tragically. I still remember her in Stephen Chow’s movie wearing a bra that shoots fire.

    I think it should be written as “against the odds” not survive “under” the odds.

    Pauline is lucky to have such a great friend who cared more about her child than she herself did.

    Anyway I actually forgot about her until this article appeared.

      It’s a little unfair to say that Pauline didn’t care about her son. Postpartum depression is a very real and tragic part of many women’s lives and I don’t think her suicide had anything to do with how much or how little she loved her son.

        One must have strong faith in themselves inorder to go thru this postpartum depression, I was thinking of something else than staying unhappy and depressed over petty stuff after I gave birth to my bb, no one care for me either.. all around me were busy and I had to look after my own kid even during the 1st mth after gave birth..but I maintained a strong mind so i won’t think anything disaster.

        I’m sorry but to say that Pauline gave me an impression that she was spoiled and pampered with luxury stuff and sweet talks, so when this tycoon guy dumped her, she couldn’t take it and that’s how she took her life away. If she was strong enough and believe in herself, she wouldn’t wasted her life just like that.

        She was basically forced into being a porn star to help her family make ends meet… I’m not surprised that she sustained some damage along the way. People like her deserve pity, not judgment. We can’t ever truly know what was going on in her life.

        I think the old man is an ugly coward and spineless man if he really didn’t provide anything for the child despite admitting he kept Pauline’s photo. Whether or not he’s the real father, if the cause of her suicide is because he dumped her, he should at least make some provision for her son especially since he’s so rich anyway. Pauline must’ve found it hard to snap out of post-partum depression – with no work, lost her looks/figure after delivering her child and thinking of another dependent, so she took what she thought is the best solution to her problems.

    What a tragic tale of a young and desperate woman. Also Faye Wong and Huan Jie grew even bigger in my eyes after reading this.

    Huan Jie and Faye Wong are indeed compassionate and generous to undertake this task. From the above info, it’s a little sad that the boy is not performing well at school and is slightly rebellious….just like the movies isn’t it** While HJ meant well in bringing up the boy instead of him ending in an orphanage, children brought up under these circumstances need a lot of guidance and understanding because HJ has to be both mother and father. To complicate matters HJ is unmarried (I suppose) and as a busy businesswoman (more so in the entertainment industry), I wonder if she had provided a nanny who could share the guidance bit. Yes, it is lonely for the boy but he should not have a chip on his shoulder and behave as if the world owes him something. It’s sad to loose both parents but there’re others worse off than him and he should be grateful. He’s only 10yrs old and most vulnerable to influence. It’s not too late to ‘turn’ and guide him otherwise he’ll end up with bad company.

    I wonder what the deceased Huang’s family has to say. Has HJ done a DNA test. ??
