Fans of Chinese dramas can stream the HBO Asia original series – Who’s By Your Side– exclusively on HBO GO from Sunday, October 3 at 9pm. Simultaneously available on the HBO channel (Astro Ch 411), the Taiwanese series premieres with two episodes followed by a new episode every Sunday.
Directed by Golden Bell-winning director Peter Ho, Who’s By Your Side stars Kaiser Chuang as Zhi-Sheng, a low-esteemed and debt-ridden car mechanic, and Vivian Hsu as Yong-Jie, his kind and optimistic wife who holds two jobs to make ends meet while helping to pay off his debts.
When Zhi-Sheng makes baseless claims about his wife’s infidelity, it surprises Yong-Jie’s step-sister Yong-Qi, played by Ning Chang, and arouses her long-repressed insecurities about her own supposedly perfect marriage to Hao-Yuan, played by Ivan Chen, who comes from a wealthy and respected family.
The 10-episode, one-hour series explores relationship issues and marital challenges and depicts painful dilemmas for the characters through a unique lens on their daily lives. Other cast members include Lu Hsueh-Feng, Ellen Wu, Michael Chang and Chiao Yuan Yuan. Check out the trailer here.
Who’s By Your Side is presented by CYNC Design, distributed by MM2 Entertainment; produced by YD Entertainment, Deepwaters Digital Support and Win Win Entertainment. Written by both Peter Ho and Chiang Yu-Chu.
