BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA Chen, in 2006 The New York Times today brings word of a sex scandal that has been burning up the East Asian media for the past two weeks, but which is only starting to generate heat here. The story so far: Edison Chen, a B-list movie star in the states (The Grudge 2!) but an A-list star in his native Hong Kong, took compromising photos of himself with a slew of Asian actresses and teen idols and put them on his computer. According to a police report, Chen left his laptop at a computer repair store, where the machine's memory was copied. A few days later, the photos made their way to the Web (an employee of the store has been arrested, but not charged), and as is the natural progression of these things, they quickly metastasized online faster than prudish Hong Kong censors could have them taken down.
