Alice Ko has said that many of her roles have had some elements of her own personality, such as Lin Yi-nan in "Night Market Hero" and her confronting unfairness and the youthful innocence of the title character in "Miao Miao." But the one Ko felt the most kinship with was Vivienne Tsai of "Marry Me, or Not?," saying in her 2016 Golden Bell Awards acceptance speech that Tsai's "superficial stubbornness was a protective sheen masking inner vulnerability," hinting at the inner self that lies behind the brilliance she herself shows on screen.

Eric Chen believes that architecture is not just an object to be thought about in terms of floor space and size, but a system and a medium for the formation of networks, as well as something closely related to the cultures, living environments, and styles of ordinary people, so it is worth exploring in greater depth the measures by which we can respond to changes and events through architecture, and perhaps through these responses, in some small way have our own impact on society.
