On December 13, the Okinawa Film Office of the Okinawa Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCVB) reported that they had invited a Taiwanese drama and successfully finished the filming.

From December 4 to 11, a Taiwanese television drama entitled How Is Marriage? was filmed at a chapel in Yomitan and at the Nakagusuku Castle Ruins in Nakagusuku Village, as well as other locations in Okinawa. Taiwan Next TV will broadcast it in May 2013.

Popular actress Tien Hsin who received Taiwan’s 2011 Best Lead Actress Award, appears in the drama. With “marriage” as its theme, it depicts stories of families, couples, love, and emotions. It was shot on locations at a beautiful beach and in a resort hotel.

To promote Okinawa internationally, the OCVB started the Overseas Contents Support Project and provided financial assistance to help film images that will be broadcast overseas.

In the 2012 fiscal year, the OCVB provided assistance of up to 30 million yen for six films. This Taiwanese drama is the fourth project and was granted 22 million yen.
