Sexy Mainland star Leni Lan Yan suddenly vanished and could miss her new film promotion at any moment. Producer Stephen Shiu Jr. already issued a final notice to Lan Yan's manager. If he did not receive any response by the date line he would reserve the right to take legal action.
Lan Yan vanished after rumors of suicide. Her manager Bobo also said that she could not find Lan Yan and did not know whether she would be able to coordinate the 3D SEX AND ZEN: EXTREME ECSTASY (3D YUK PO TUEN ji GIK LOK BO GAM) promotion. With the new film about to be released, the film company was in quite a panic about the missing Lan Yan and on the 4th issued a "final notice" email to Bobo. It stated that if Lan Yan would not arrived in Hong Kong on the 7th to promote, all flight and hotel booking and interviews would be cancelled. If on the midnight of the 6th no response was received, all arrangement would be cancelled.
The film company finally received Bobo's reply on the 5th and said that she already flew to meet with Lan Yan's father in Shanghai, "wanted dead or alive". Bobo still has no word from Lan Yan. Stephen Shiu Jr. said, "She is one of the most outstanding actresses. If any tragedy befalls her, it's truly sad and regrettable."
Reportedly, the film company has always been upset about Lan Yan making her own self promotion that people mistook for the film company's promotional gimmick. At the same time it was also upset that she was uncooperative with the team and created severe differences. The "missing" case made people suspect if there was more to the story. Stephen Shiu Jr. admitted that if any loss would incur due to her inability to promote for 14 days as stipulated on the contract, he would reserve the right to take legal action.
