YesAsia Editorial Description

In the 1970s, the Keelung Port in northeastern Taiwan was going through an unprecedented period of activity and development. Many commercial and military ships anchored at the harbor, and big ships came and went, day in and day out. All of this bustle and business was supported by a group of laborers – the coolies. The 2019 Taiwan drama Coolie weaves a sweeping yet intimate story about the lives and struggles of laborers and pier workers during this time. The 30-episode drama was the first series broadcast on PTS Taigi (formerly PTS 2), which was renamed and rebranded in July 2019 as an exclusively Taiwanese Hokkien-language channel.

After a coal mine disaster in the mountain area broke families and closed mine pits, those left jobless could only move to Keelung to seek livelihood. Lin Wen Qu (Emerson Tsai), who lost his adopted father and brothers in the disaster, vows to take care of his sister-in-law Qiu Yue (Grace Lin) and her children. Both Wen Qu and Qiu Yue are determined to work hard in Keelung to protect their family. Whether it's at the mine or at the pier, Wu Qing Feng (Jun Fu) is always the first to step up and speak up for workers. He takes it upon himself to help the orphans and widows who have come to the pier for work. Li Xiu Min (Ikeya Chen) is the daughter of a shipping company owner, but she fell out with her family due to their disapproval of her relationship with miner Wen Qi, the second brother of Wen Qu. After Wen Qi's death, the devastated Xiu Min leaves to live on her own, but she chooses to return to her parents' side when the family company goes bankrupt. Xiu Min's brother Min Hua (Huang Weng Hsing) falls for a bar girl, only to be left heartbroken and penniless. Too ashamed to go home, he ends up at the wharf and experiences the hardships of coolie labor. Moved by Qiu Yue's perseverance, Min Hua realizes the follies of his past actions and becomes a leader in fighting for workers' rights.
