When we watch dramas, we get a glimpse of their culture, their food, and their best tourist attractions. For instance, the popular drama, 姊的時代, has us dreaming of Taiwan once the pandemic is over. It details the life of three professional women in their 30s who try to find personal happiness outside their successful careers. The main cast of the drama includes Aviis Zhong as Zhou Kai Ting, Ada Pan as Ma Li Sha, Jacqueline Zhu as Wang Qing Qing, Ben Wu as Su Can, Gabriel Lan as Gao Ze Shan, and Jack Li as Lin Dai Yu.
