Chinese Actress Tang Wei Falls Victim to $35,000 Scam (Report) – The Hollywood Reporter
Chinese actress Tang Wei, who was banned from acting by the government for a year after her steamy role in Ang Lee‘s erotic thriller Lust, Caution, was swindled out of $34,692 (210,000 yuan) in a telecommunications scam, local media reported.
Tang was filming in the Songjiang district of Shanghai when she reportedly received a fraudulent phone call persuading her to wire the money to a local Bank of Communication outlet.

Tang, whose last movie Finding Mr. Right scored big at the Chinese box office, was shooting the Mabel Cheung-directed The Tale of Three Cities, which tells the remarkable story of Hong Kong star Jackie Chan‘s parents in 1930s China.
Police have recently been advising people, particularly expatriates and wealthy urbanites, to be cautious after a series of telecom-related scams, the Shanghaiist reports. In November 2013, two expats in the Pudong financial district were swindled out of $3.9 million, the biggest scam reported in Shanghai for many years.
The reaction online to the news of Tang’s plight was a mixture of sympathy and derision, with some calling her naive for falling for the scam.
The Songjiang District Public Security Bureau confirmed to local media that Tang filed a complaint over the weekend, but a police press officer surnamed Zhou refused to comment further.

The 34-year-old actress fell victim to the scam while shooting in Chedun town, the news portal xinmin.cn reported. A bank teller reportedly tweeted that she had opened a new bank account at his bank.
While it was not exactly clear how the grift in question was orchestrated, a common con in China is for a scammer, often posing as a police officer, to call up a potential victim and say his or her bank account has been compromised, usually because of a hacker.
The scammer then urges the target to immediately transfer any money he or she has to an account set up by the police. After the transfer is completed, the scammer moves the money to a new account (or network of accounts) that the criminals control.
Tang’s agent said she was not upset by the scam and was continuing with the shoot.
Tang-Wei Hsu 2020-Fantasy on the Universe — Taiwanese American Arts Council
Adventures in self-referential, multi-level spatial possibilities: a new generation of sculpture in public spaces
by Luchia Meihua Lee
We may take the 1965 exhibition New Generation at Whitechapel Art Gallery as the herald of a distinct school of abstract sculpture, whose object was “the totals or unities created by man in his attempt to understand and control the world” [note 1]. While contemporary pop and graffiti in the US, or anime or manga in Asia, are far removed from the scope of the New Generation artists, their concerns for abstraction, for the essence of sculpture, for total artistic responsibility for effect and medium, predicate the sculpture of contemporary artists such as Taiwanese American Tang-Wei Hsu. If Superflat [note 2] is essentially Warholian, then I would characterize Hsu as attempting to catch the whole universe in a welter of symbolic fecundity.
His objects are coated with pleasant, soft, and primitive colors and lines that nevertheless fail to lend stability – indeed they covertly undermine it. Hsu thus develops an open, airy art language, through seemingly conducting a discourse of abstract animation to determine space or the physical world. Even though there is a definite artistic commonality with graffiti and street murals, the antisocial element has been completely eradicated in Hsu’s work. Thematically, he rails against the orderliness of aesthetic limits, stylistically diminishing a principle of symmetrical two dimensional balance, and has blithely deconstructed the division between two and three dimensions, between sculpture and drawing, remanding medium to irrelevance and enthroning content and form that generate excitement regarding the surface of works.
In terms of cultural provenance, Hsu was born and reached artistic maturity in Taiwan, in an atmosphere of global integrated notions of individual recognition. As a consequence, his artistic consciousness ranges from microscopic to universal and has no bounds. Whether in murals or sculpture, Hsu’s concept involves endless and detailed correspondence that ricochets between a child’s dream, scientific imagination, and fantastical allegory. Nevertheless, his architectural background allows him to take a methodical approach to the liberation of symbolic systems.
If we look for the portals of culture, we find that they have been thrown open and thus the sense of art must rely more heavily on artistic imaginative form; by contrast, historically the source of cultural symbols is the mystery of religious ecstasy. [note 3]
The modern skill of deploying self-consciously expressive art for the dissolution of the social hierarchy has empowered and legitimized the moving into the public space that is graffiti, mural, or street art. Yet beyond any art historical trend, Hsu’s mysteriously fluid graphic line – dripping liquidity beyond nature – leaps beyond culture, beyond narrative science fiction. His creative drive is boundlessly infinitizing his art spirit and thus creating his radical self. It is far from the monolithic norm.
When I am saying Hsu has liberated his hand and mind in these works, I do not wish to minimize the difficulty of his art construction in accordance with a systematic or established form or procedure. The images and the objects that are revealed are interconnected in the body of works which gives them context. When following a smooth line, a shape, or color, we are locked into a structure that flows in then out as through an explosion of imagination without effort. Here, we capture a discourse on extensive reinterpretation. Therefore, instead of overvaluing entry on some level and deriving currency from sensationalism, I refer to the 1986 comment by Jeff Koons: “I would like to offer up a term that has had vital currency in the process of my own thinking: contingency. I think that through this procession of contingencies, discourses are being pulled together into the object itself, promoting an awareness if the fact that all meaning are contingent upon some other meaning where meanings are appropriated for their relationship to eternal forces, the larger social schema in which they’re involved” [note 4. ]

The Summer Olympics in Photos
Delayed by a year by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics are finally drawing to a close. For athletes, it is the culmination of five years’ hard work. But it’s not all blood, sweat, and tears. In between the moments of fierce competition, there are the flashes of laughter, camaraderie, and heartfelt — or sometimes heart-shaped — joy that make it all worth it.

Hong Kong to Make Investors Trade Stocks Under Their Real Names
Hong Kong’s securities regulator said investors will need to register their real names with the city’s bourse to trade stocks from the second half of 2022, a move that tightens personal identification rules on the exchange in an effort to prevent misconduct.
Financial institutions will be required to submit proof of their clients’ identity to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange to place, buy or sell orders, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) said in a statement Tuesday.
Currently, investors are not required to register their real names on the exchange, with the exception of Chinese mainland residents who trade Hong Kong-listed shares through the Stock Connect program.
In December, the SFC initially proposed implementing the real name identity requirement by the first quarter of 2022 at the earliest, but now has decided to delay after receiving public feedback that called for more time for preparation.
The identification requirement will also apply to over-the-counter securities transactions in the first half of 2023, including those for ordinary shares and real estate investment trusts, the SFC said.
“We consider that the implementation of the regimes will significantly enhance Hong Kong’s surveillance against market misconduct and support the development of Hong Kong as an international financial centre,” the SFC said in the statement.
The regulator said in December that a lack of transparency in the market made it costly and time-consuming for authorities to identify problematic trading behaviors.
The new identification requirement will not apply to IPOs as they only involve subscriptions of shares but not trading, the regulator said.

For Taiwanese athletes, Tokyo Olympics their best ever
Taipei, Aug. 7 (CNA) Taiwanese athletes completed their participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics on Saturday with a record medal haul — two golds, four silvers and six bronzes — that ranked 21st for total medals as of Saturday evening.
Taiwanese athletes shattered their previous record of five medals set at the Athens Olympics in 2004 with two golds, two silvers and one bronze.
A total of 68 Taiwanese athletes competed in 18 sports at the games, which conclude on Aug. 8, and got strong performances from athletes expected to do well, such as world champion weightlifter Kuo Hsing-chun (郭婞淳) and world No. 1 badminton player Tai Tzu-ying (戴資穎).
＊Kuo thrilled at winning Olympic gold, but could be hungry for more
＊Following heartbreaking loss, Tai has special moment with Sindhu
There were also positive surprises that should give Taiwan hope for the future, such as 19-year-old table tennis star Lin Yun-ju (林昀儒), who finished fourth in men’s singles, and 24-year-old judo specialist Yang Yung-wei (楊勇緯).
＊Judoka thanks fans after winning Taiwan’s first medal at Olympics
＊Lin Yun-ju’s bid for historic table tennis bronze falls just short
Taiwan’s two golds were won by Kuo, who dominated the women’s 59kg weight class, and world No. 3 badminton doubles team Lee Yang (李洋) and Wang Chi-lin (王齊麟), who barely escaped their preliminary round group before rolling to victory.
＊For Taiwan’s golden badminton duo, an improbable journey to the top
The four silver medal winners were the men’s archery team — Deng Yu-cheng (鄧宇成), Tang Chih-chun (湯智鈞) and Wei Chun-heng (魏均珩) — gymnast Lee Chih-kai (李智凱) in the pommel horse, Tai in the badminton women’s singles, and Yang in the men’s 60kg judo class. Among the bronze-medal winners were boxer Huang Hsiao-wen (黃筱雯) in the women’s flyweight category, golfer Pan Cheng-tsung (潘政琮) in men’s golf, and karateka Wen Tzu-yun (文姿云) in the women’s kumite 55kg category.
＊Taiwan’s men’s archery team wins silver at Tokyo Olympics
＊Gymnast Lee Chih-kai aiming to turn perfection into invincibility
＊Unlikely golf medalist rides Taiwan’s wave of success at Olympics
＊Taiwanese boxer caps rise from humble beginnings with Olympic medal
＊After bitter loss, persevering Taiwanese takes pride in karate bronze
The others were Lin (林昀儒) and Cheng I-ching (鄭怡靜) in table tennis mixed doubles, taekwondo athlete Lo Chia-ling (羅嘉翎) in the women’s 57kg category, and weightlifter Chen Wen-huei (陳玟卉) in the women’s 64kg weight class.
＊Taiwan wins first Olympic table tennis medal in 21 years
＊Taiwan taekwondo bronze medalist thanks officials for Olympic dream
＊Female weightlifter Chen wins bronze, Taiwan’s second medal Tuesday
A total of NT$208.55 million (US$7.5 million) will be awarded to the athletes in bonuses by the Taiwanese government, according to the Sports Administration.
Gold medalists will receive NT$20 million, silver medalists will get NT$7 million, and bronze medalists will get NT$5 million.

90,000 Tang Wei, Actress: photo, biography, filmography, news
Chinese actress best known for the controversial film Lust.
Tang Wei was born to a former actress and artist. After graduating from high school, I thought of becoming an archaeologist or a lawyer.

Tang Wei is… What is Tang Wei?
Tang Wei is a Chinese actress best known for the controversial film Lust.
1979-2006: Childhood and adolescence
Tang Wei was born on October 7, 1979. She was the only child in the family of a former actress and artist. The future actress graduated from vocational high school in her hometown in 1996. At that time, the girl did not dream of fame and aspired to become an archaeologist or a lawyer.Tang made her decision to enter the entertainment industry after a short stint as a model in 1997. She graduated from the Central Academy of Drama in Beijing in 2002.
In 1995, Tang Wei met Zhu Yuchen (eng. 朱雨辰 ). They were both originally from Shanghai and both majored in drama and acting. By 1998, the couple moved to live together while continuing to pursue higher education. They officially parted ways in 2002, a few weeks before Zhu and Tang completed their studies.
Shortly after graduation, Tang Wei met Stan Lai, a famous Taiwanese American filmmaker. Lai was impressed by the actress and stated, “Some stars cannot be good actors, many good actors cannot be good stars, but Tang Wei was fortunate enough to do both.” Lai began to recommend Tang Wei to some directors and thus knocked out several roles for her, although the girl herself at that time was relatively unknown outside of her hometown.Tan starred in the TV series Police Swallow (2004) and the limited-edition university drama Che Guevara (2004). She later appeared in the television dramas Leaving Quay Street (2005), East meets West (2005), Born in the 60s (2006).
Tang Wei and Ang Lee
In July 2006, Tang was selected from over 10,000 actresses to star in Ang Lee’s Lust (2007) starring Wang Jiazhi (Ms. Mac). For this role, she had to learn Shanghai and Suzhou dialects, as well as receive training in more formal dressing and behavior.For this role, Tang not only won the Golden Horse Award for Best New Artist, but also gained wide popularity outside of China. In March 2008, the China State Administration of Film, Radio and Television (SARFT) ordered the media to ban Lust due to the presence of sexual acts in the film. Following the scandal that accompanied the film, Tang Wei lost numerous advertising and promotion contracts.
Following the success of Lust, Tang and her parents were granted residence permits in Hong Kong.In December 2007, the actress ended her three-year relationship with boyfriend Tian Yu (田 羽).
2009 – Present: Late Autumn and Crossing Hennessy
Because of the Lust scandal, the actress dropped out of the film industry for several years. She was invited to play in Tian Zhuang Zhuang’s The Warrior and the Wolf (2009), but was subsequently replaced by Maggie Q. As reported, the girl did not waste time and was trained in acting at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom.
From November 2009 to March 2010, Tang Wei starred in Late Autumn (2010) directed by Kim Tae Young. In the same year, she starred in another film – “Crossing Hennessy” (2010).
In September 2010, it was announced that Tang Wei had been cast as Mao Zedong’s first wife in Making a Party (2011). However, in 2011, it was announced that her scenes had been cut. Subsequently, Mao Zedong’s grandson, Mao Xinyu, admitted that they were slaughtered at his request, since a woman as vicious as Tang Wei is not worthy of playing the role of Chairman Mao’s first wife.

Tang Wei, 41 this year and a Korean director in 2014. Kim Tae Young got married and gave birth to a daughter in Hong Kong in August 2016, probably because the daughter was born in the middle of summer, so the English name is Summer.
The two photos that Tang Wei posted on IG on the 29th were scenes in which Leto cut her hair twice herself. Summer’s hair is thick, no wonder she’s hot, but the decision is not to braid her braid, but is to cut her.I saw Summer in a plaid skirt, scissors in hand and bowing his head, although his hair covered his face, he was very cute.
When she was a child, Summer’s hair was relatively loose, and now Summer has not only thick hair, but also in the back. Summer evolved into a stylishly dressed little lady and inherited her parents’ long legs.
Netizens 留言 I praised young Summer for being “tough” and “as outrageous as a mother.” However, some netizens reminded Tang Wei that they were worried that scissors might hurt Little Summer.Of course, there are netizens who believe that Tang Isyue should convince Summer to become disabled and act to keep him safe.
After Tang Wei married and gave birth to a daughter, he found a solid foundation for life. Since she and her husband made films, with the birth of her daughter, she came back to life, collecting pine cones, catching ants and stacking stones with her daughter, which became her daily life at home. Faced with wood, rice, oil and salt, Tang Wei felt particularly wealthy.During an epidemic, she once posted a photo of a jump with her daughter to do a rubber band jump. At the time, Summer was still in the back with her head loosely tied, and the sight of jumping was full of innocence. Tang Wei and his daughter also looked like a child’s heart.
Last October, Tang Wei returned with South Korean director Park Chang Wook’s new film “Resolve After Breakup.” which made Tang Wei completely “surprised” and “excited”.
Talking about the fate of Kim Tae Young and his family, Tang Wei previously starred in the romantic comedy “Intended. In interviews, Tang Wei often nodded when asked about the topic” Is there a prepared love “which is appropriate for promoting a new film.
She suddenly broke the news. After she married Kim Tae Young, she inadvertently turned to the “fortune-telling paper” that her parents asked to give her the marriage before marriage. The time, place and characters were appropriate, which made the audience deeply moved.
