Taiwanese pop singer Jay Chou caused a stir at a cafe in Japan recently when his appearance caused other customers to leave the shop, according to Oriental Daily.

The customers did not recognise the King of Mandopop and he was also mistaken for a Yakuza boss.

The 41-year-old was dressed in a dark print shirt along with a beanie and sunglasses.

This type of outfit is reportedly commonly worn by local gangsters and his appearance raised the alarm.

When he sat down and ordered drinks, other customers started to quickly settle their bills and leave, leaving Chou alone in the cafe.

He is reported to be on vacation in Japan before his concert tour starts in October.

Some of his fans waited in line for four days just to buy tickets to his upcoming concert.

Based on China Press report, 30,000 tickets for his 29 February 2020 concert next year were fully sold out after it went for sale over the weekend.
