Did You Know That…?
 As an accomplished screenwriter, Wen Yu-fang is a three-time winner of the Golden Bell Award for Best Writing for a Television Series, for her contribution in TV dramas “Wayward Kenting (我在墾丁*天氣晴),” “Falling (含苞欲墜的每一天),” and “Shards of Her (她和她的她).”



After graduating from Shih Hsin University (世新大學)’s Department of Radio and Television Studies, Wen Yu-fang discovered a new passion for theater and subsequently enrolled in NTU’s M.A. Program in Theater. Upon completing her studies, she crossed paths with Wang Shau-di (王小棣), a film and television director, writer, and producer, during a screenwriting workshop. Invited by the director, Wen embarked on her career as a screenwriter, debuting with the script for the television series “A Young Doctor in the Big Hospital (大醫院小醫師).”


To write the story of “A Young Doctor in the Big Hospital,” Wen immersed herself in the world of medicine by conducting field studies in hospitals and nursing homes. Continuing her quest for diverse perspectives, she journeyed to Burkina Faso, a country in West Africa, collaborating with a Taiwanese medical team to craft the screen adaptation for “45°C Main Dans La Main (45度C天空下).” Later, she traveled to Miaoli County in central Taiwan to interview a family of florists to write the script of “Banquet (赴宴),” a story addressing environmental conservation, indigenous struggles, and the legacy of the White Terror. These experiences brought the screenwriter immense joy and a sense of accomplishment.


In 2023, Wen won the Golden Bell Award for Best Writing for a Television Series with “Shards of Her (她和她的她).” Through this work, she aims to shed light on the trauma endured by victims of sexual abuse, hoping to foster greater awareness and understanding. Despite acknowledging the solitary nature of a screenwriter’s journey, Wen emphasizes the importance of continual engagement with society and individuals in the creative process. Reflecting on her profession, she describes it as bittersweet, as it entails an ongoing dialogue with oneself.
