Nick Cheung talks about his new film "Taste of Crime" in Shanghai.

Award-winning Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung was in Shanghai today to promote his latest offering “Taste of Crime.”

The cop flick, both directed by and starring Cheung, will hit cinemas across China on April 28.

It tells the story of an undercover cop who risks his life fighting against a mysterious crime gang.

The protagonist of the film is in self exile, but after spending some time reflecting on his responsibility, he decides to return and do what he can to stop the crime.

Cheung said he also had a real-life experience in “self-exile.”

“My acting career didn’t have a bright and shining start,” Cheung recalled. “I spent around half a year traveling in Africa to get my passion back and face up to my challenges.”

Cheung’s credits include Best Actor awards at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Taiwan’s Golden Horse Awards and the Asian Pacific Film Festival.
