Cheung, affectionately known as Gor Gor (Cantonese for older brother), had leapt to his death from the 24th floor of a hotel in Hong Kong on April 1, 2003.

He was 46 years old.

In 2003, 46-year-old Cheung fell to his death from Mandarin Oriental Hotel, leaving a note saying that he was suffering from depression.

The singer-actor debuted in 1977 and became popular throughout the 80s.

He won multiple awards for acting and singing, gaining fans across Asia and around the world.

Recently, media outlets reported about a doppelganger who looked like the late Canto-pop star.

The lookalike is a bus driver and many netizens speculated that Cheung faked his death to leave the pressures of being a superstar while some said the doppelganger is a reincarnation of Cheung.

The bus driver’s features, facial expressions and physique remind them of the late singer-actor.

Photos of the bus driver were uploaded online two years ago but have recently reappeared on social media.

“I’ve seen Gor Gor (Cantonese for Big Brother),” another netizen said.

Chinese media has reported that the bus driver is contented with his honest living. -/TISG
