Taiwan singer turned actor Richie Jen says he has fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a director, with romantic comedy "All You Need is Love".

The 49-year-old was not only the script writer and director of the film but also plays the leading role alongside Taiwan super star, Shu Qi.

Jen says his film should give audiences that warm, fuzzy feeling inside just like his music.

"Movies are dream factories. I want to make your dreams come true, and feel blissful afterwards. I hope that my films, just like my songs, and my music. My music is very simple, but it is sincere, very pure and moving."

The movie is about a rich girl played by Shu, who escapes to Peng Hu, an outlying island of Taiwan to run away from problems at home.

There she meets the owner of a bed and breakfast Inn - played by Jen - who is struggling to make ends meet.

Together they revamp the guesthouse, save it from bankruptcy and fall in love.

Richie Jen began his career as a pop singer in Taiwan in the 90s and his subsequent success opened the door for him to try acting in television and movies.

"All You Need is Love" is in theaters now in Taiwan and the Chinese mainland, and will be released in Hong Kong on September 10th.
