He-Sheng Tang (合勝堂) is open for tours from 10 am to 5 pm every day until 12th of November.
The House converted in a Chinese Medicine Shop called He-Sheng Tang (合勝堂) which served as set for the Netflix Taiwanese Serie “A Taiwanese Tale of two cities 雙城故事” open its doors to visitors wishing to take a step further into the series universe until 10/12th.
The 122 years old house located in the famous historical Dihua street underwent a 6 years’ renovation costing about $30 million NTD in order to preserve its unique architectural and historical features.
It is now a private household owned by the same family for 3 generations. The director Nelson Yeh 葉天倫, nominated Best Director by Asian Television Awards in 2016, and the crew borrowed multiple props and accessories from other places to recreate a Chinese Medicine Shop environment.
The series released on Netflix early September this year tells the story of two women, one from Taipei – Nian Nian – and the other (with Taiwanese origins) from San Francisco – Jo – stepping into each other’s life and switching places. Amid the characters’ personal backgrounds and the love stories they are going through, the series highlights Taipei’s unique historical and cultural features as well as the culture shock between those people deeply connected despite the ocean between. A story both touching and funny that will surely seduce the audience and make them want to learn more about Taiwan.
The series received a government grant from the Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture supporting the show’s portrayal of a Taiwanese story with a global perspective.
For the occasion, the production is also holding a photo contest open to all until 10/31st in order to win some prize. For more information please refer to the official Facebook Page.
