FUCK YOU 2019. Seriously. I cannot believe I am writing about two Asian celebrity deaths in the same week. One is already insane and painful, two just confirms this is one of the worst years ever in blogging about East Asian entertainment. News reports have confirmed that Taiwanese-Canadian heartthrob actor Godfrey Gao (Gao Yi Xiang) has died. He was 35 years old and judging from his fit physique seemed to be in the prime of health and life. He was filming a variety show called Catch Me for China’s Zhejiang Television which was a two team chasing show that was filmed at night. At 2 am during filming he suddenly called out “I can’t handle it anymore” and collapsed. CPR was done on him by paramedics on the scene and his heart stopped for 3 minutes. He was transported to the ER and pronounced dead shortly thereafter. It was reportedly a massive heart attack. Rest in peace, Godfrey, I don’t even know what else to say. My heart is just wrecked right now.
