He was friends with basically everyone in TW-ent from the veterans to the newbies so many many people paid a visit on the first day of his memorial service. I expect those not here to come in the coming days. Going in solemn and coming out teary eyed was everyone present including ex-girlfriend and still bestie Rainie Yang, also high school classmate Tiffany Ann Hsu, Janine Chang, married couple Xiu Jie Ke and Alyssia Chia, Kid, Ming Dao, Tony Yang, Blackie and his wife, Gui Gui (Wu Ying Jie), married couple Kun Da and Alice Ke, and even disgraced star Show Luo showed up after hours when the media was gone so as to not cause a distraction. I expect even more stars to arrive in the coming days including Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo (who already sent a giant flower arrangement), Joe Cheng, Bolin Chen, Gwei Lun Mei and more are all friends and/or worked with Xiao Gui in his nearly 20 years in the industry.
