It Started with a Kiss (惡作劇之吻 in traditional Chinese and 恶作剧之吻 in simplified Chinese) is a popular Taiwanese drama which aired in 2005. It was based on 10 volumes of the Japanese manga series Itazura na Kiss (Mischievous Kiss) by Kaoru Tada and stars Taiwanese idols Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin as the leading characters. The show was one of the highest rated Taiwanese dramas of 2005.

Yuan Xiangqin (Ariel Lin) is a naive but optimistic high school girl. Ever since she met Jiang Zhi Shu (Joe Cheng) at the freshman orientation, she's fallen in love with the genius with an IQ of 200. After two years of having a crush on him, she finally musters the courage to confess to him at school with a letter. Zhi Shu is not impressed, and his cold-hearted rejection immediately turns her into the biggest joke of the school.

Misfortune comes in a pair: that evening, the new house she has just moved into with her father collapses in a minor earthquake. She and her father are instantly left homeless. Fortunately, her father's old high school friend extends a helping hand and invites both of them to live at his house. Little did Xiang Qin know that the kind Uncle Li is actually the father of Jiang Zhi Shu! Because of the unexpected turn of events, the two of them begin living their lives under the same roof.

Xiang Qin discovers Zhi Shu's childhood secret from his mother(She used to dress him up like a girl), and blackmails him to tutor her in her studies. With his help, she manages to get accepted into a university. On the night before Zhi Shu's university entrance exam to Tai Da University, Xiang Qin gets drunk and inadvertently tells him that she wants to go to the same university as him.

When Zhi Shu came down with a flu on the day of his university entrance exam, Xiang Qin decides to accompany him but faints. Zhi Shu sends her to the hospital, thus missing his entrance exam. Xiang Qin blames herself when she found out. However, later it was discovered that Zhi Shu had missed the exam intentionally - mainly because of the conversation the night before and also, he did not want to attend Tai Da. They eventually go to the same university.

Xiang Qin's admirer, Ah Jin (Jiro Wang) from high school is very determined to marry her and become a successful chef. In order to do so, he becomes the apprentice of Xiang Qin's dad (who is a chef) and gets a job as a cook in the university's cafeteria in order to hone his skills while simultaneously being near her. There, Zhi Shu becomes classmates and friends with a pretty and smart girl called Pei Zi Yu (Tiffany Xu). Xiang Qin begins to feel jealous and tries to get in between Zhi Shu and Zi Yu all the time. Later, Zhi Shu's mom comes up with a plan to make Zhi Shu jealous and encourages Xiang Qin to fake a relationship with a junior student. At the same time, Hao Qian (an upperclass man) who is Zi Yu's admirer asks Xiang Qin to pretend to be in relationship with him to make Zi Yu jealous. Zhi Shu misunderstands and becomes extremely cold towards Xiang Qin, but then Zhi Shu figures out Hao Qian's plan and ends up being closer to her instead.

Zhi Shu becomes tired of living under the protection of his parents. He decides to move out to live on his own and living on his own expenses by working as a waiter. Xiang Qin manages to make a nuisance of herself by going often to his workplace, and by coincidence (or not) Pei Zi Yu works there too. Xiang Qin decides to follow Zhi Shu from his workplace and find out where he lives. To her horror, she finds him walking with Zi Yu after work and going into the same house. Crushed, she cries bitterly and isn't herself. Finally, through her friends' help and Zi Yu's sister, she manages to find out the truth on that matter, but she continues to bring more problems to Zhi Shu.

Zhi Shu's father suffers a heart attack when Zhi Shu tells him he wants to be a doctor. It had always been his father's plan and dream that Zhi Shu will one day inherit and take over his business, although Zhi Shu had no interest. Due to his father's hospitalization, Zhi Shu temporarily takes over the company. Xiang Qin also help out by working in the company. She manages to make a client regard very highly of Zhi Shu, and he ends up getting introduced to the client's pretty, elegant and intelligent granddaughter, Hui Lan. As Zhi Shu is afraid of losing partnership with this client which could result in the company's financial crisis, he decides to date and gets engaged to Hui Lan. Xiang Qin is crushed and decides to date Ah Jin, her admirer.

Ah Jin had asked Xiang Qin to marry him. She hesitated and asked for more time to think it over. She shares this with her friends, who in turn purposely talked about the proposal in front of Zhi Shu. Zhi Shu becomes agitated and for once in his life, he did not know what to do. Hui Lan, sensing his agitation and that his heart did not belong to her, prompted Zhi Shu to rethink their engagement. He left her to find Xiang Qin, hoping that he was not too late. He eventually finds her and finally proposes to her.

In the end, Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin get married at the place of their first date in a rather unusual but amazingly romantic wedding.

A sequel, which will focus on their lives after marriage, has already begun filming. It will be aired in Summer 2007.
