Devil Beside you is what got me into watching dramas. I loved how Mike He and Rainie Yang were able to show the pain of falling in love with someone you're not supposed to as well as the cute and goopy moments. Don't let the fact that they end up becoming step-siblings throw you off. I think that's what adds the most charm. I was honestly touched by this show...enough to buy read more it and watch over and over again.

I've read many great reviews about this drama but I guess they're giving it a lot of attention that it shouldn't have. Yes, the drama is cool but you can't possibly have high expectations because you may get disappointed.
Anyway, the story is nice and different which matters the most, the actors were great plus they had one of the most awesome chemestries out there and let's not forget the great supporting read more roles.
I had fun while watching this drama this is one of the Taiwanese dramas that i don't care about the language while watching it because i was so focused on the great events.
If you're hesitating about this one and haven't watched it yet then you should give it a go but don't get your hopes too high.

Similar plot..in both series the main leads end up living together because of some circumstances ; one of them can't stand the other one; both series start with "a letter of love", both girls are naive when it comes to love, etc.

Same main actors, similar plot. If you watched one of them and you liked it, def check the other one as well.

    Every TW-Drama with Rainie Yang has a guy with a super bike ...
    "Devil Beside You" is one of the best Taiwanese dramas ever made. The cast is show, Rainie Yang and Mike He starred in some great scenes.
    I saw this drama because the majority who watched it recommend. "Devil Beside You" really is a good drama, fun, action and tears!

    OH MY GOD THIS ONE'S A CLASSIC!!! I think it has a target generation (also because of the advancement of the technology lol), but this has one of the best romance out there. Who doesn't ship Mike He and Rainie Yang right??? Love them both, but love them more together <3

    Another one of my first dramas..I came to this series because of its manga (Akuma de Sourou) which by the way is absolutely fantastic and has been one of my favourites for years. You can read it online on many sites..

    While watching this in 2005/2006 I was really obsessed with Mike He..now seeing it after so many years I feel that the quality is lacking..still..I have fond memories about it and keep coming back to it once in a while. Although It Started with a Kiss has a similar plot, I would love to see a Korean remake for this one as well.

    I've finished it like a week ago and it's still on my mind :3 It is really really cute, mike and rainie have such good chemistry! but the whole story itself wasn't the best.. in the beginning it was all exciting and you were wondering what is going to happen but from there on it kinda goes downhill.. kinda like a slice of life but then pretty bad? what made the drama good with no doubt are the actors and their chemistry! honestly I love the cast, it was fun to watch them and with no doubt ahmon and qi yue are probably one of my hardest ships ever haha. I gave it 7,5 because of the actors and their characters but I didn't want to give it 8 or higher because the story itself could've been way better!

      If you like manga you should give that one a try. It's really good, I actually dropped the drama cause I have a hard time with the acting haha.

      hey different strokes for different folks...I do better with reading than watching, I get antsy and bored and have a hard time sitting down....unless I have a project. But yeah if you ever get the fancy, the manga is super good.

    I've watched this movie and they look great together. Even if they want to make him looks like a bad boy, you can see it's a good one ;), he is very talented and she is cute like japanese cartoon :p

    This is literally the first [East] Asian drama I watched. It's been almost 10 years now. Thanks a lot for being the gateway to my kdrama addiction and ruining my life.

    Such a classic and good drama with 7.9 rating?? LOL this deserves at least 8.5. Seems like dramalist ratings are higher mostly for the newer dramas? This drama might be old but I still remember it being really good, with very high re-watch value. They should really consider remaking it just like something about 1%.

      Lol! I gave this drama a 10. But it was one of the first dramas I watched and so I loved it. I probably have seen this over 10 times already now. I never mind going back to watch this, but I will admit that it has some problems. It has its own share of flaws and it is very dated.

      But I still love it, so even though I see the things that I did not notice before I can't rate it any lower.

    This drama was one of the second dramas I watched after BOF and these are one of those oldies that are definitely goldies. These remind me of the good ole days when dramas might not have a great budget to have special effects, extras, or grand or elaborate stages and scenes but they stuck to heart of a good plot, strong characters, and an overall great story.

    I think 7.9 is a sad rating for such a good drama. This is one of the oldies and should be viewed in the context of the time when it was released-- without being compared to contemporary dramas. It's at least a 9/10 imo.
