F-Stop - "BEHIND THE SCENE" FOR PUBLIC VIEWING

By Gere Ladue

"Hungering for more explanations about the disappearance of Joey Wang? Besides the two rumours reported in the last issue, there is another story about Wan'gs recent screen absence. This one says that Wang was carrying on a hot affair with a popular Taiwanese actor (Wang is herself Taiwanese) who just happens to be married, and the little homewrecker is being booed and boycotted by the Taiwan filmgoers, who reported stayed away from GREEN SNAKE in droves. Since the Taiwanese release of HK films is big money for producers, they can't afford to have a film fail there simply because of an actor, and Wang has been sent on vacation until things cool down. No word on wheher the adulterous Romeo received thesame treatment from fans, but I'm betting he didn't -- his devoted wife probably didn't even divorce him, let alone grab a kitchen knife".

F-Stop - Putting the Pieces in the Puzzle

By Gere Ladue

"Oh that's right, I did promise sinners too: not too many on this go-around. Sally Yeh keeps finding herself in the middle of other peoples broken romances, at least in court; recently she was not only supposedly mentioned in Mrs. George Lam's divorce complaint, but also found herself subpoenaed to testify about a former boyfriend's harassement of her in his latest ex-girlfriend's battery suit. Speaking of supposed homewreakers, still no screen appearances by Joey Wang Tsu-hsien, but her photo is slowly starting to show up again in a few magazines".

F-Stop - A LOOK AT SOME WESTERN MISCONCEPTIONS & MISUNDERSTANDINGS ABOUT HONG KONG FILM

By Gere Ladue

"Another former beauty queen, Joey Wang Tsu-hsien, aka Joey Wong Jo-yin, has stolen many a gweilo heart in her ghost story getups, and has been given official status as one of Jackie Chan's "little sisters" since their work on CITY HUNTER (that means she is being promoted by Jackie/Willie productions and is probably represented by Willie Chan); she had been making appearances and singing with Jackie for special events. Two concurrent rumors about Wang's recent absence from HK film offer conflicting stories: in one she has sold herself to a multimillionaire as his modern-day concubine and is holed up in a fabulous mansion, waited on hand and foot (hey, don't blame me -- it was printed in a Taiwanese newspaper); the other has her returning to Taiwan to pursue a pop career and starting a heavy schedule of coaching, etc".

What exactly will the subject of your thesis be?

can give u a thorough filmography.
