It is written in the blogosphere that she was credited as Fanny Hsu in Viva Erotic and Love is Not a Game But a Joke, possibly others. But I'm too lazy to pull out my vcd/dvd at the moment.

In truth, I rarely see it these days except on mainland news site like crienglish or other simular ones. I first noticed it around 2007 looking back at my old news posts.
