Jaycee Chan turns over new leaf in detention
Hong Kong actor Jaycee Chan, son of film star Jackie Chan, who was arrested in 2014 with singer Kai Ko for drugs.

Hong Kong actor Jaycee Chan, son of kung fu superstar Jackie Chan, who was suspected of drug use back in Aug, spent his 32nd birthday in detention on Wednesday and revealed a new outlook on life, ent.163.com reported.

His broker quoted Chan's mother, Joan Lin, as saying that Jaycee Chan has repented and turned over a new leaf, borrowing more than 100 books to read in the last 113 days in detention.

He has also started writing songs and film scripts.

Jaycee Chan seldom read books before, even asking his colleagues to read out film scripts for him, claiming he has dyslexia. His mother said "he has really changed".

Jackie Chan, who is busy on a film shoot, commented in an interview that his son was too "playful and naive" to understand the serious consequences of drug use. Jackie Chan said if he had known about it earlier, he would have beaten his son "to death".
