One of Damian's Taiwanese dramas (1988)
《八月桂花香》
Some videos were uploaded by me, some from users in youtube. Just note that youtube cannot be viewed in China.
It's yet another "soap opera" teary drama. All of the actors and actresses really played their roles well!!
The DVD may be quite difficult to get now. Probably only in Taiwan (Somehow they don't export overseas).
However,if u have TTV world (台视国际台) channel on cable, they always re-broadcast Damian's dramas


Main Theme
This one is sung by Roman. It's extremely popular, probably really well-suited for the drama.
Title:尘缘

Sub-Theme
At the end of all the episodes, they have a trailer for the next episode. The sub-theme sounds very sad too!
It's called 餘恨 sung by 陳亮吟

sub-theme from another episode

The dvd was out somewhere in 2006, so they've even had advertisements for it. This shows how popular the drama really was!
I heard that sales for TTV dvds were not so good in general [not just Damian's dramas, it was for all dramas they were selling], hence they've stopped selling DVDs over their website :( I guess piracy also affected sales.
Anyway,here's the ad

Here's 2 trailers from the TV station

Episode 3
Should be from ep3, can't really remember. 雪岩 (Damian's character) likes this girl who is in the opera. This part shows him playing a small role.

Damian looks cute with the Chinese opera drawn whiskers on his face. 

It is really too bad that the station no longer has a store that sells this drama.  I have to put it on my list of things to hunt for. 

Thank you for sharing!

I remember watching 'Scent of Autumn' off tudou web...

The drama is about the business man Mr Wu's (胡雪巖) life story. It had been a long time since i watched this drama, i recalled the youth scenes of Mr Wu were really funny.... but gradually becoming more serious when Wu grew up....

Just read the post on Roman Tam and thought about the famous theme song of this show. I decided to search for Scent of Autumn on the forum and then got here. This show, of course, as well as the song, is so classic that it is a shame that there is no official dvd available to people not in Taiwan. The version I watched was terribly recorded and edited. The quality of the dvd shown in Sharon's post is actually pretty good, compared to the other versions. 
 
As I listened to the theme song, a question occurred to me: how to translate "chen yuan" into English? "Destiny in the Red Dust"? or something else? "yuan" is a concept so peculiar to Chinese language. It is hard to explain it. But the concept of "yuan" is the essential to this show and a lot of Yang Peipei's productions featuring Damian. 

 A few more words on the lyrics of Roman Tam's "Chen Yuan": it is probably one of the most beautiful theme songs existing.

Monkey,
Actually the DVD was released only in Taiwan, because it's distributed by TTV.
I recalled it didn't make much money hence DVD distribution was stopped completely.
Scent of Autumn was the 2nd DVD to be distributed after Oceans of Love.
I have a strong feeling that sales was bad due to piracy~




I didnt really like the design of this set of DVD. Oceans of Love was much much better.
Also, it was quite expensive. ~USD80 at that time.

Wow, thank you, Sharon, for sharing the picture. It looks pretty good to me. They seemed to  charge too much.  That is probably why the selling did not last very long. But I would buy it anyway if I had known about this.Hopefully  one day they will release it again, along with all the other five Damian classics. :)

Sorry, to add on. I meant there were 2 of Damian's DVD.
And several others not by Damian distributed under TTV. 
All of them were rather costly,but the quality was good.

The cost was high, maybe cos' they were new to this distribution line.
If they had passed the distribution rights to other companies, it wil cost less to us.
But then again, I think they wanted to have their exclusive rights so that they can continue to attract 懷舊 customers like me to buy their channel on cable! (think they'll earn more from here)

Did u get Oceans of Love DVD. It is such a nice design!!!

Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to get them. Now I have to wait till they redistribute the shows with Damian in it some day in the future. They seem to underestimate the market and the amount of potential buyers like me.

 I wish I could get TTV's cable! It is so nice to watch Damian's shows on TV.  :[e013]:
