Drama: Devil Beside You (惡魔在身邊)
Posted March 1, 2007on:
This is probably one of the top dramas out there and one of the first Asian dramas I’ve watched. The plotline moves rather quickly and has contains quite a bit of comic relief. The chemistry between the leads (Mike He and Rainie Yang) is obvious. This is a must for all Mike He fans out there. I bet his performance in this series is what turned many of us into Mike fans in the first place. Definitely a worthwhile show!

Qi Yue (Rainie Yang) is a college student in her second year. Having a crush on the captain of the school’s basketball team, Shang Yuan Yi (Wang Chuan Yi), she writes a love letter to him and prepares to pass it to him. Qi Yue, being clumsy, accidentally hands the love letter to Jiang Meng (Mike He). Jiang Meng, called Ahmon or Ah Meng by his friends is a freshman and the school’s bully, smiles devilishly at Qi Yue as she gapes in shock, dropping the love letter carelessly and running away. Qi Yue soon hears from her best friends that Ahmon is the school president’s son. Being rich and powerful, Ahmon and his gang go around bullying other people to amuse themselves. While walking around school, Yue runs into Ahmon. He shows her the letter and reads the front of the envelope out to her. Qi Yue then realises that Ahmon picked up the letter that she dropped. Ahmon blackmails Qi Yue and threatens to print 1000 copies of the love letter and scatter it around the whole school if she doesn’t become his slave. Unwillingly, Qi Yue is forced to cater to Ahmon’s every desire.
