Zhang Jie breaks Jay Chou's riddleby kelvin@multistars - 8th March 2010

Zhang Jie really reads Jay Chou in a unique way! He can tell just how many points Jay Chou is giving based on "mm", "aiyo!", "aiyo, not bad!".
There are two people Zhang Jie is most thankful to since becoming an artist, one is Yaming Li and the other is Jay Chou, because before he joined "Nan Quan Mama", he was initially signed to Yaming Li, he revealed that Yaming Li is a very strict agent, he doesn't care about your feelings whatsoever, he doesn't know how many times he's been shouted at by Yaming Li, he got shouted at so much he thought he couldn't sing, but he didn't have it that bad, Andy Chen was worst off, just standing next to Andy Chen listening to him getting shouted at, he couldn't bare it and wanted to escape home.
Due to the hellish training imposed by Yaming Li, after joining Nan Quan Mama and switching to Jay Chou as his boss and teacher, he felt like he went to heaven.
Zhang Jie said, Jay Chou gave them a lot of creative room, plus he didn't shout at them, even though it felt like heaven, but being in heaven too long, it makes you quite helpless, because you can't find your direction at all, you don't know which direction to focus your energy towards. A good thing was after knowing each other for a while, he slowly broke Jay Chou's body language code.
For example, he completes a piece of music and takes it to Jay Chou for him to listen to, if after listening to it Jay Chou only says "mm" and leaves, then that means it has failed, but if he says "aiyo!" after listening to it, it means he gives it at least 60, if after saying "aiyo" he adds in the phrase "not bad!", then it's even better, it means he rates it 80.
So every time he takes some music for Jay Chou to listen to, he would especially observe Jay Chou's reaction, from Jay Chou's reaction he can see how many points the song he wrote got.
