THE concert of popular Canto-pop group, Twins, in Hong Kong in April was cancelled following the recent sex photo scandal involving its singer Gillian Chung, said Nanyang Siang Pau

In some of the photos, Chung was seen in a compromising position with Hong Kong entertainer Edison Chen.  

In the past few weeks, hundreds of photos – believed to be of Chen with a string of Hong Kong starlets, including actress Cecilia Cheung and former actress Bobo Chan – had been circulating on the Internet. 

The Twins concert in Malaysia on June 27 and 28, however, will go on as scheduled, said a spokesman from organiser Genting City of Entertainment. 

“We will inform the public if there are changes,” he said.

He hoped RTM could produce more Chinese programmes in Bahasa Malaysia to attract more viewers and look into its weakness in attracting Chinese viewers.
