Thailand gets a glimpse of “Love Fun Taiwan” through the fun-filled trip of Yepun Thanat Thanajirachai in Taiwan. The Thai rising star is often mistaken for a Korean idol. As a first time visitor to Taiwanese cities outside Taipei, he is most impressed by the island’s perfect fusion of not only fashion and classics, but also tradition and innovation.
In India, “Love Fun Taiwan” is presented by Bollywood actress, model and TV host Pooja Bhamrrha. After visiting Taiwan for the first time, she finally understands why everyone says: “The most beautiful scenery in Taiwan is its people!”. She adds that this journey has made her believe more in “fate”.
For these international TV hosts, Taiwan is their top choice among international destinations. This resonates among travelers as well, especially now that the pandemic lockdowns have already been lifted.
“Love Fun Taiwan” recreates the serendipitous discovery of Taiwan by Portuguese sailors in the 16th century as brilliantly translated by veteran producer Michelle Lee into visual narrative. As a multi-time International Emmys judge, Lee shares her experience and expertise with select production teams from the three Asian countries for this project. It’s really a creative collaboration as each of the TV directors from India, Thailand and the Philippines have been given creative freedom in visual storytelling with their own unique style and breathtaking cinematography. This feature makes it more engaging and engrossing with catchy and penetrating music scores arranged by Golden Melody Award winner Huang Shao Yong. It’s a visual feast that truly satisfies all the senses.
Transforming the beauty of Taiwanese culture into a gorgeous kaleidoscope, “Love Fun Taiwan” aims to capture not only the viewers’ eyes but also their hearts. The team behind this project hopes that it will give love and healing to everyone. They also beam with pride of the production teams from the three countries that produced four (4) special features each, airing in major networks in the region: India’s Zee TV, Thailand’s TV and CNN Philippines. With one special edition jointly produced by all the production teams from the three countries, all these will complete one season of showcasing the love and fun of Taiwan premiering on the country’s first all-English streaming platform TaiwanPlus, this coming February 4 – before streaming on LiTV, Taiwan’s largest OTT platform.
