Multi-talented Hong Kong star Jay Chou is preparing to quit singing and acting to become a full-time director.
After successfully making the transition from pop music to movies, the 28-year-old has recently directed his first movie, Secret - and claims to have found his true calling.
Chou says, "As an actor, I have to listen to the director, even though I may not like the way I have to perform. As a director, I'm very clear on what I want, so I feel more confident.
"As an actor you have to be a very good chess piece for others to play with. I prefer to control others."
