By Lauly Li  /  Staff reporter

Wei denied the reports, saying the company met its goal of producing eight TV series in two years.

Q Place Creative will launch an internal review to utilize its resources more efficiently and create quality content, Wei said.

“We did not ‘withdraw’ our investment. We will continue to support good screenplays and the training of actors in Taiwan,” she added.

In an interview with the Chinese-language Apple Daily in July, when A Boy Named Flora A was at the height of its popularity, Tung said he did not invest in films and TV dramas to make a profit, including his personal investment in director Hou Hsiao-hsien’s (侯孝賢) movie The Assassin (刺客聶隱娘) last year.

“I want to encourage people who wish to shine their creativity in arts and culture,” Tung said. “I hope Taiwan’s soft power in art and culture can help Taiwan to expand its reach further in the world.”
