Jay Chou expresses interest in hosting his own show

The multi-talented Jay Chou is successful in just about anything he does, but would he make a good talk show host? It's hard to say at this point, but President Chou is apparently interested in expanding his career into hosting.
At the opening a new clothing store, Jay Chou frankly admitted, “What kind of new challenge do (I) want? That would be hosting! Because being a host is the only thing in showbiz that I haven’t tried yet. I think it’d be fun. There's just one idea in mind, which is to support (my) friends as the focus. Like getting a few guys from Nan Quan Mama, let (my) friends try it out, and guest host for 2 to 3 episodes.”

The star was asked if he is serious about becoming a host., to which he responded, “It depends on which network has the courage. Of course I’m willing to (start a show)!” He revealed that he has in fact been in discussions with two networks already, but declined to name them.

President Chou said he hopes to do a show that combines elements of dancing, such as inviting celebrities as instructors. On whether he would invite his “good friend” Jolin Tsai, he said, “(We) won’t unite anymore. After the big sensation created from last time, it should be put to an end.”
