TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – HBO Asia's latest TV show, "Adventure of the Ring," which features stories set in Taiwan, will be released on Dec. 13.

The series is directed by Kitamura Toyoharu and adapted from the mathematician and author Lai I-Wei's (賴以威) novel "Ring of the Day," according to Warner Media. Taiwanese actors Chris Wang(王宥勝) and Allison Lin (林予晞) are the leads, while Denny Huang (黃柏鈞) and Amber Fang (方季惟) play supporting roles.

The story begins with Wang, an actuary, losing the ring with which he planned to propose to Lin, a flight attendant, on the Taipei metro. The show is composed of eight romantic episodes of this sort, according to the Taipei Film Commission.

Wang visited many actuaries to capture the role. "I went to talk with them in their offices,” he said. “Then I got to know more about their love lives and work situations. Then I discovered that their thought processes are different from ours, which proved helpful for my performance.”
