Second sighting reveals a more youthful Joey Wong

Former Taiwanese actress Joey Wong gave commuters a shock with her bare-faced mug on the train while she was back in Taiwan recently, according to Chinese media reports.

Fans were in disbelief over the 47-year-old's dressed-down and unglamorous-looking appearance, and commented on her "dull-looking eyes, odd-shaped face, and aged looks".

The 80's screen goddess, famous for her role as a kind spirit in "A Chinese Ghost Story", was later spotted at Taiwan's Taoyuan airport.

Wong was catching a flight back to Vancouver, where she has been living since retiring from showbiz about a decade ago.

The actress once again did not have a stitch of make-up on but wore a pair of black-rimmed glasses.

According to Xinhua, this most recent appearance showed Wong in a more flattering light, and drew comments that she looked much younger than her 47 years.

Clad in a flowing white top, jeans and sneakers, netizens said  "it is almost as if the Xiao Qian (her character's name in A Chinese Ghost Story) of yesteryear had resurfaced".

The latest sighting of Wong has sparked renewed interest in how former screen goddesses like Lin Ching-Hsia, Lin Fengjiao, Angie Chiu, Carol Cheng and Maggie Cheung look like now.

Unfortunately for them, a comparison of before-and-after photographs show that time has not been kind to the former beauties, reported Chinese entertainment sites and Xinhua.
