20 May – Hong Kong actors Him Law and Benjamin Yuen have been rumoured to be among the names that have posed nude for a businessman taking their photographs.
According to Jayne Stars, Law and Yuen's names were believed to be among the 35 names that were found on a list of male actors, models and uniformed officers that had posed nude for 61-year-old businessman, Lau Ding Sing, who is currently undergoing a court hearing for sexual coercion.
The name list also included several winners and former participant of the Mr. Hong Kong contest.
Police had seized a collection of 16,000 photos of these men, some dressed in uniforms and in underwear while others in completely in the nude. Each photo was attached with the model's name, age, ID numbers, height and even the length of their genitals.
Lau was believed to have amassed the collection 16 years ago, after police had seized 1,000 photos of uniformed personnel from the police, fire, customs and immigration departments.
He was said to have even paid the models to pose in the nude with lucrative amounts of money and promised to introduce them to the entertainment industry if they willingly did so.
A magazine had linked Law with Lau, but the "Mother to Mother" star had denied that he had taken any nude photos and insisted that he has made a respectable living.
Meanwhile, Yuen denied of ever knowing Lau or assisting in any police investigation related to the case.
