Synopsis:

Rising Taiwanese idols Joe Cheng (The Rose) and Ariel Lin (Love Contract) jointly present the romantic drama It Started with a Kiss! Like many other popular romantic TV series, this TV adaptation of a Japanese manga was very well received in Taiwan when it was broadcast in 2005. The story starts with a high-school girl with a crush on her classmate who has an IQ of 200. She confesses her love to him, but that only makes her the laughing stalk at school. It turns out, however, that their parents are actually very good friends and, due to various developments, they end up living under the same roof. What will happen to them? Maybe everything just starts with a kiss!

 

Trivia:

The series was based on the Japanese shoujo manga "Itazura na kiss" (Mischievous kiss) by Tada Kaoru. The are 23 volumes of the manga. There is no ending for the manga; the series was still running in Margaret when the author passed away at the age of 38 from a brain aneurysm.

Itazura na Kiss (TV Asahi, 1996) is the Japanese adaptation.

The filming of It Started with a Kiss lasted one entire year. Some scenes were filmed in different seasons, which resulted in many goofs.

The director, Qu You Ning, made two cameos in the drama: One as the fat, middle age woman on a bus who accuses Ah Jin was taking advantage of her and another as Zhi Shu's boyfriend in Xiang Qin's imagination.

The sequel is set to air in September 2007 due to the show's high ratings in Taiwan.

Really good drama with Ariel Lin and Joe, but unfortunately not continuing after the sequel They kiss again. Too bad.
