Google Taiwan unveiled its 2019 Year in Search rankings today. Which keyword topped the chart this year?

The winner goes to The World Between Us (我們與惡的距離) — a popular Taiwanese television show that explores many of Taiwan's social issues. Not only did the show trigger a huge wave of online discussions this year, but it also became the most-searched keyword.

Tina Lin, the executor director of Google Taiwan, said Taiwan's 2019 searches involved a lot of films and TV shows. The World Between Us was the first Taiwanese show to examine the psychological aspect of serial killings. It also provoked many discussions on the struggling journalism industry, mental health, and the death penalty.

The second most popular keyword was "typhoon," given the multiple typhoons that had swept by Taiwan this summer. It is then followed by Han Kuo-yu and several historical Chinese drama series.
