Joey Wong () Falls from Grace
The gorgeous goddess Joey Wong (), once the queen of the golden age of the HK film industry, was recently seen in Vancouver, Canada.

Hong Kong based Taiwanese-born actress, now almost forgotten from the memories of her fans during the past 90s, attracts the attention of her old fans.

She celebrated her 50th birthday on Jan. 31, 2017.
Wong never forgot to say to her old fans through SNS "Thank you very much to my old fans for loving me. I will always love you!"

Once there was a rumor that she became a nun, now people say that she turned to the Buddhism after she was completely retired from her TV or movie appearance.

Reports say that in Noverber of 2016 Wong returned from Vancouver to Taiwan to attend the funeral of her father who died of stomach cancer.

Chinese media reported that Wong became a Buddhist nun at a temple on the suburban Vancouver in June of 2009.

Wong retired in 1994 at 26 years old. She has been spotted in Canada with a head full of long hair.

She retired because of her involvement with a HK married man named Peter Lam. Her meteoric rise to fame as an actress was due to him too.

The man married with children, divorced his wife to pursue her. This scandal gave her a negative image in Hong Kong. Peter's mother vocally criticised Joey publicly.

After this scandal Wong reunited with her ex-boyfriend Chyi Chin in Taiwan. They had broken off when she got entangled with Peter Lam. Ex-bf Chyi Chin was 7 years older, a singer and spent 3 years in jail during his teen years.

Joey had been suffering from emotional depression for a very long time which could have led to mental issues now. There are even cruel rumours that said she had given birth to a daughter who is deaf and whom she gave up for adoption nearly 20 years ago.

Young, naive, gullible and unlucky in love... the two men she was involved with contributed to her downfall.

In happier times with this bad gangster boy! They were supposed to get married in 1999, when on the eve of marriage she found out that he had a 7 year old son with an wife. Love indeed is a gamble of emotions.

They became romantically involved in 1985. Finally broke up in 2002. Wong had to leave Taiwan to get over her sadness and she went to Canada.

Joey Wong Cho-Yee (AKA Joey Wang, Wang Tsu Hsien () was born on Jan. 31, 1967. She is a Hong Kong based Taiwanese-born actress.

She was raised in Taipei. She completed her secondary school education there. She was enrolled in the drama program of Guoguang Arts School (now National Taiwan College of Performing Arts (Chinese article). She has an older brother, a younger brother and one sister.

Her father is a basketball player and he encouraged her to become a professional basketball player when she was fourteen. Shortly thereafter she shot a TV commercial for sport shoes which drew the attention of a film producer who made her the leading lady of film It'll Be Very Cold by the Lakeside This Year.

This movie attracted the attention of producer Mona Fong of Shaw Brothers and she invited Wong come to Hong Kong to make her first Hong Kong movie Let's Make Laugh II, opposite Derek Yee Tung Sing.

In 1987, she portrayed a beautiful ghost in A Chinese Ghost Story and her beauty and grace made her a film idol in Japan and South Korea. She made a dozen movies in the following years playing similar characters, either ghost or vixen, gliding across the screen.

In 1989 she went to Japan to star in the TV series A Woman From Hong Kong. Later she also made commercials and published photo albums.

In 1992 she made her singing debut with the Japanese and Mandarin CD single, "Hold You In My Arms Forever". In 1993, she appeared as the White Snake in Tsui Hark's Green Snake, a revision of the Madame White Snake legend told from the perspective of the younger Green Snake, though White Snake remains the romantic lead.

Wong expressed a desire to retire from film making in 1994 and stayed away from the limelight until 1997 when she returned to the silver screen in the Japanese movie Peking Genjin (Peking Man) and released the companion CD single "Who Are You?".

In 1998 she released the extended Japanese CD Angelus and her first and only full CD, in Mandarin, Isolation a.k.a. Isolated From The World.

She returned to semi-retirement after the release of Isolation, but returned once again to films in 2001 with Peony Pavilion, then once again announced her retirement.

In 2004 she appeared in Beautiful Shanghai a.k.a. Shanghai Story and reportedly appeared in a Taiwanese TV series with on again, off again beau Chyi Chin.

It was reported that she enjoyed her return to films and reportedly signed a multi-film contract. However, the unexpected suicide of her friend and former movie co-star Leslie Cheung caused her to withdraw once again from the limelight.

In September 2005, coinciding with the worldwide release of Beautiful Shanghai (Shanghai Story), she once again announced her formal retirement. She currently resides in Vancouver, Canada and is studying English.

Joey Wong was also very well known for the relationship with Chyi Chin, who was a Taiwanese singer. Their relationship lasted about 16 years, from 1985 to 2002. Now they remain friends
