Flirty and brazen

Flirty and brazen

She was a relatively unknown Hong Kong model-actress.

But 26-year-old Liddy Li has become a household name overnight - for all the wrong reasons.

Since Monday, she has been high on netizens' search engine list, with many labelling her "homewrecker", "shameless mistress" and "cheap woman".

One netizen even said: "You must be fame-hungry because you cannot make it in the industry, to resort to doing such a despicable and shameless thing."

The reason behind these insults?

Li was recently revealed as the third party in Hong Kong director Oxide Pang and Malaysian actress Angelica Lee's four-year marriage - and she was evidently not shy about flaunting her "other woman" status in public.

On Monday, photographs of Li and Pang on a date were splashed all over Hong Kong tabloids, showing the pair kissing, holding hands and flirting out-side a theatre.

The news of their affair sent shock waves through the Asian showbiz industry as Pang, 48, seemed to be enjoying a blissful union with Lee, 38.

The couple had attended Hong Kong actress Charlie Young's wedding in Singapore last November, smiling and holding hands.

How they met

They fell in love after meeting on the set of the hit horror movie The Eye in 2002, which Pang co-directed with twin brother Danny Pang and which she starred in.

They dated for eight years before tying the knot in 2010.

They have collaborated on other movies like action flick Out Of Inferno (2013), mystery thriller Sleepwalker (2011) and horror flick Re-cycle (2006).
