Hong Kong misses Gor Gor Leslie Cheung – 10th Anniversary

6:41pm, April Fool’s DayToday marks the 10th Anniversary of Leslie Cheung’s death. 10 years on, Hong Kong pays tribute to the one of its most talented and greatest stars. At Causeway Bay, Times Square Hong Kong hosts a memorial exhibition “Miss You Much Leslie” (29 March – 1st May) to commemorate the late legend.  Leslie’s ex-lover, Daffy Tong unveiled a 5.5m tall statue of Leslie Cheung. Fans around the world created a new Guinness World Record for the largest display of origami cranes – 1,900,119 of hand-folded paper cranes are housed in a giant red transparent acrylic cube. The exhibition also showcases many Leslie’s collections – trophies, awards and some of the costumes he wore in the movies and concerts.

Over at Central (right outside Mandarin Oriental Hotel where Leslie fell 10 years ago), thousands of fans from all around the world poured in with flowers wreaths and photo-placards. Emotions were high and many came to pay tribute to Hong Kong’s favourite “Gor Gor”. Leslie may have departed this world but he lives forever in the hearts and minds of many. Truly a legend and a day well remembered. Rest in peace, Leslie. (Enjoy the music video below)
