Simultaneously available on the HBO channel, 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.
