One half of popular Mandopop duo, Twins, Chung and Charlene Choi Tsoek-jin had come back together to perform after a brief split over the Edison Chen photo scandal back in 2008.

Chung and Choi were also rumoured to be starring opposite each other in a web drama “Female Forensic Scientist JD” (女法醫JD), according to reports at the beginning of the year.

The pair, together with the film crew who are not from Mainland China and fellow casts, had reportedly flown to Malaysia to film at a hospital in Selangor.

Chung also made headlines recently after a sudden split with her husband of less than two years, who claimed that she doesn’t love him.
