Singapore actress Jayley Woo will no longer be signed to Mediacorp full-time, taking on any future roles with the broadcaster on a project basis instead.

Woo, who said she is taking acting classes and "will focus on improving my craft", added: "There are some opportunities to collaborate with China but it is still not final at the moment.
