88. Devil Beside You 惡魔在身邊 (2005) Taiwanese

Mike He, Rainie Yang, Kingone Wang

Drama Rating: 4/10     Neck Score: A

Another as addictive as crack type deal.  Seriously badly made (but this is 2005) but still so watchable.  Maybe it's because Mike He is super hot and has super sexy hair.  It's based off of a manga, and it the silliest plot ever.  The manga is originally in high school, but to make it less sketchy they put it in college, but you'll still think they are all in high school they way they all act.  She accidentally gives her confession note to the wrong boy, not the captain of the basketball team but to the resident bad boy.  He then uses it to make her his slave/errand girl, but it's clear that this is because he likes her.  Then they find out that they are soon to be step-siblings as their parents are about to get married.  This becomes a big problem when she starts liking him, but doesn't seem to deter him from pursuing her.  The show is badly made, but not badly acted really (well at least the main two actors, can't say the same for basketball captain dude).  It gets way silly, but the chemistry of the main two is no joke and "Make-out Mike" can really kiss.  Seriously, that dude's hair is too sexy in this show.  Makes his neck look soooo goooooood.  They made it seriously in the manga style in how it was done, from the acting styles to the hair, to the special effects.  Maybe that makes it seem cheesier, but the rest is so badly made that it might make it worse when it's just a style choice.  Anyways, it was one of those things where we were like "why do we like this show so much?"  But we had to keep watching.
