Taiwan makes 'soft power' play with telenovela

Politically ignored Taiwan practices soap opera diplomacy, in Spanish

source: Los Angeles Times


A promotional spot for a culture-bending telenovela recently aired on Spanish-language KJLA-TV channel 57.

Car headlights illuminate a pair of shapely legs in high heels, followed by a shot of a plainly dressed woman at home, speaking anxiously into a phone. Her husband frowns at a computer screen, and in the background, a presumably nude woman sleeps on a couch covered only by a blanket. All the actors are Taiwanese.
