After disappearing from showbiz for 12 years, netizens have spotted Taiwanese actress Joey Wong in the past month in Yang Ming Shan and Dan Shui, Taiwan. Yesterday, a netizen by the username “augustpaul” posted several photos of her in a train on a forum.
The photos, which went viral, were uploaded with a caption: “(These) look like the photos seen in the news, but I doubt it is her. Maybe someone could not sleep at night and decided to be her.”
Netizens felt that her face was “out of shape” and suspected she had gone through a blotched plastic surgery. They even commented: “I cannot handle this picture at all.”
Journalists then phoned Joey’s mother, who admitted that her daughter, who has moved to Canada, did accompany her on the train but did not respond to plastic surgery rumours. She also assured that both she and Joey are well and thanked the public for their concern.
The 47-year-old was also seen attending an activity at a temple on September 13 and shared a Buddhist song she had recorded, which her mother also confirmed.
But she denied that Joey was a devout Buddhist and said, “Buddhism is good but she did not undergo any religious ceremonies, everyone has their own religious beliefs.”
