TAIPEI, Taiwan — A popular Taiwanese television drama, “The Way We Were (16 個夏天),” will be broadcast in Spanish in El Salvador, starting on Dec. 4, according to Taiwan’s embassy in the Central American country.
Airing the series abroad is part of the government’s efforts to promote Taiwan’s TV industry and introduce Taiwanese culture and people to foreign allies, said Florencia Hsieh (謝妙宏) while unveiling the series in San Salvador on Nov. 24.
The series, which spans a period from 1998 to 2014, focuses on love and friendship and is set against major events that occurred in Taiwan during the summers over those 17 years.
Its five major characters reflect the values that are important to Taiwanese, such as friendship, forgiveness, loyalty, and cooperation, Hsieh said at the promotional event on Nov. 24, according to a statement released by the embassy. [FULL STORY]
