HONG KONG actress Cecilia Cheung and singer Gillian Chung are trying to make a comeback after having been involved in a sex photo scandal that rocked Hong Kong show business early this year.
Sin Chew Daily reported that advertisements featuring both of them appeared on prime time television in China recently.
Commercials and movies starring Cheung and Chung were almost completely dropped from the screen after hundreds of photos – believed to be those of Hong Kong actor Edison Chen with a string of Hong Kong starlets including Chueng, Chung and former actress Bobo Chan – were found circulating on the Internet.
According to certain websites, some people supported Cheung and Chung returning to show business as the incident had happened a long time ago.
“They are still young and should be given a chance,” they said.
However, another group of people said Cheung and Chung should focus on community work instead.

The volunteers would go to Beijing this Saturday and stay there for four weeks.
