  1. Although she’s not entirely my taste, she has a nice body and is huge in Chinese-speaking countries – I can’t pick up a Chinese language magazine without seeing her in it!

  2. About time Karen Mok got her due here on Asian-Sirens!

    However Robin, your applaudable cut and paste bio neglects to mention her unforgetable bit-part in Wan Kar-Wai’s “Fallen Angels”–a quirky, endearing role that won her a Hong Kong Film Awards Best Supporting Actress trophy.

    What’s more, first and foremost, Karen Mok is a major pop star in Asia who is much more celebrated for her music than film acting. And while she makes a nice piece of change singing sugary Chinese ballads–a must for any pop star to cut it in Asia–she can crank out some spirited rock songs.

  3. yikes…how come the last pix she looks bad…photoshop on the first one?…she looks like a Thai bar girl in the last pix and a starlet in the first…

  4. First pic, photoshop. Last one, real shot (with some bad lighting).
    Sorry to tell you, but the photoshop girls don’t exist for real. 🙂

  5. dazn..that is why it is always good to see them in person:)….i tell ya, that last shot is not very flatering … it is like nite and day…
