Bangkok Olympic torch babe photo mystery

A reader who recently examined the pictures in this post  -- my live-blogging of the 2008 Olympic torch relay in Bangkok --  swears that the young woman in one of the photos is Gillian Chung Yan-tung, the Hong Kong actress and singer best known as a member of the Cantopop group Twins (alongside Charlene Choi).

I'm not convinced, but the similarity to a photo I found of Gillian on the Internet (right) is quite striking.

This is my photo:

What do you think?


  1. No offense but is your reader kidding? That is definitely NOT Gillian Chung. You and your reader obviously don't know what Gillian Chung looks like. I don't see any similarity either, except that they're both women and both asian. LOL.

  2. Gillian fan,

    It seems we have a difference of opinion. Speaking as an Asian and a woman, I still think they look an awful lot alike!
