Leslie Cheung (1956-2003) RIP

For those of you who do not know HK actor and pop legend Leslie Cheung Kwok-Wing committed suicide last night in HK. Reasons are unknown at this point, but I would guess it has something to do with the breakup with his boyfriend.

More details I am sure will be forthcoming.

So are they sure it's him? I read in another article that the guy who jumped just had the same surname and last name.

If it's true, this really sucks. He was one of my all time favorite actors.

i thought this is a april fools day joke too but it's official.

i just checked leslie's official site.
i'm still unsure whether i should call Didi Cheung (Leslie's older brother) and send my condolences.

(I was really hoping this was an April Fools in bad taste)

First saw him in A Better Tomorrow, and he was in many of my favourite HK films.

It was a shock when I first heard it this morning. Everyone I spoke with felt the same.
