CS tells you more about him.

>> Lee was unemployed for six years after his graduation while his wife Jane Lin worked as a molecular biologist. At home, he spent his time writing screenplays.

>> He is a very good cook. Once before leaving for a film shoot he made 100 dumplings and kept them in the freezer so that his wife and kids could eat them when he was away.

>> When Lee was once asked why he made films on different subjects, he replied, “If we had a choice, we'd have many lovers instead of sticking to one marriage. I don't get to do that in life. I have been married to the same woman. I love doing different types of film.”
