I will be away from Hong Kong entertainment indefinitely, and there is no time frame [for a return]

A Decade After Sex Scandal, Edison Chen Grabs The Spotlight Again
After a Decade, Chen is back as an entrepreneur. He is refocusing on the fashion retailer that he co-founded 14 years ago. He was at the height of his acting and hip-hop singing career then. Chen had worked with Cantipop star Andy Lau in the movie Infernal Affairs and was always in the media spotlight.
The Hong Kong-based streetwear company started with a “clotted” selection of lifestyle brands that were unfamiliar to the Chinese consumer. A year later, it launched its private line of products. The business started in 2006, and it brought American rapper Kanye West to Hong Kong for his only stop in Asia. Chen says:
We started out with an initiative to bridge between East and West China and America.
Chen recently spoke at a China-U.S. forum held by Global Students Development Associations on entrepreneurship at New York University, dressed in blue “Inner Peace” plaid shirt from his fashion brand and baggy jeans. It was a different experience for him to speak to an academic audience. He said:
“When I started Clot years ago, I said they were made in China. Everyone was like: That’s horrible.”
