Whatever Happened To … Joey Wang (Wong Tso-Yin)

Retired from the entertainment circle since her appearance in the 2005 Mainland film SHANGHAI STORY, Joey Wang (Wong Tso-Yin) has reportedly been living in Vancouver, Canada studying English and practising Buddhism.  Lately, her name has resurfaced in the Chinese Joey Wang (Wong Tso-Yin)media because, according to rumours, Wang is supposedly interested in a comeback after hearing of the rumoured HK$4.5 million being tossed at Brigitte Lin Ching-Ha to entice Lin to make a comeback.

However, a recent report in Xinhua Daily suggests that a return to the entertainment circle is not in the cards for one of the more famous “It Girls” from the late-1980s/early-1990s.  According to Taiwanese singer Chyi Chin — Wang’s former boyfriend with whom she had an on-again, off-again relationship that lasted for 16 years — the devoutly religious Wang is more likely to become a Buddhist nun than make a comeback.  While Chin has not spoken to Wang personally since the summer of 2008, he has recently had a conversation with Wang’s uncle.  Relaying the details of the chat, Chin revealed that Wang’s aged grandparents are not doing well and that Wang has gone to the Mainland’s Anhui province to visit them.

    She’s in Canada, you’re in Canada, right?

    I saw a recent pic of her somewhere and she looked a lot different and I probably wouldn’t recognize her anymore.

    If this means she’s finally found her inner peace, then I wish her nothing but the best.

    Such a beautiful woman with so many set backs in her love life. What a shame.

    It is a rumor said that Joey Wong
    had become a nun in a temple of Vancouver,
    It is true or not (had she shaved her head)?

    thanks for the info!
