Taipei - Has Taiwanese actor Kai Ko been nabbed for a drug offence?

Not many of his co-stars today were believing the bare-bones rumour last night that Ko, who shot to fame playing a charming schoolboy besotted with his classmate in 2011's You Are The Apple Of My Eye, had been nabbed for taking drugs in China.

But the mystery today deepened after his manager said Ko, 23, had remained uncontactable hours after the rumour broke on the Chinese Tianya online forum.

Even calls and messages to his boss Angie Chai and Giddens Ko, who directed Apple, went unanswered.
