The Remarkable Story Of Shiga Lin Scandal To Hong Kong Number 1

by

In 2012 Shiga Lin was rocked by a scandal when photos of her with ex-boyfriend K-Chen were leaked online. Although other celebrities have been put in a similar situation, the fact that Shiga was only 16 when the photos were taken caused sensational headlines.

Since then Shiga has brushed herself down,  laid low for a while and then released her single, ‘Gotta Be With You’, which reached Number 1 on the Top 30 Asia Hong Kong chart. 

When The Shiga Lin Scandal Broke

At the time it seemed like Shiga’s world had collapsed. At a tearful press conference, that won’t be forgotten by those who attended, a broken and emotional Shiga had to confess private matters that no young woman would ever want made public. “I admit I have dated the young man in the photo. We have taken intimate photos before. At the time, I only took those photos because I really loved and trusted him. As for how these photos leaked, I really don’t know nor will I go find out.”

Sensing a sensational story and scandal the journalists pressed her even further and asked her if she had sexual relations while they dated. Baring in mind she was only 16 at the time the photos were taken, Shiga revealed that during their one-year relationship, they “did everything that a couple would do”.

For most young women this would probably have been too much to handle and many would have chosen a life of obscurity, where their private lives are not splashed over the front pages of newspapers. To compound the matter Shiga even had to admit other photos may exist. “These things will happen when a boy and girl are dating. (Will there be even more erotic pictures?) In my memory, they isn’t. I don’t think I will go further on how this incident happened, I just feel very disappointed, really unhappy and it’s very sudden”.

However, during the same interview Shiga gave people a glimpse of her inner strength when she said, “I admit I liked to go play and party as a teenager, done a lot of ignorant things and wasted a lot of my time. In the recent years, I really want work hard on my jobs. This incident has worried my family, friends and company, I really want to come out and bravely face the things I’ve done.”
