KO One (Traditional Chinese: 終極一班, Simplified Chinese: 终极一班, pinyin: zhōng jí yī bān) is a Taiwanese drama which aired in 2005. Before this drama was aired in the Taiwanese channel GTV, not many people were interested in it due to the storyline and the unfamiliar cast. Despite the new encounters, the ratings of "KO One" had exceeded expectations. Although the scorings for the drama were not very high, this hit drama still brought fame to the four leads (Jiro Wang, Wu Chun, Calvin Chen, Aaron Yan), who are part of the then newly-formed Taiwanese boy band called Fahrenheit. This drama also brought fame to the new Taiwanese artist, Tank who wrote and sang the opening and ending theme songs. The original soundtrack was the best selling soundtrack of 2006, selling more than 60,000 copies in Taiwan within the first month, defeating the soundtrack sales of the more popular dramas It Started With a Kiss and The Prince Who Turns Into A Frog. zh icon [http://ent.163.com/06/0331/17/2DIEMSCE00031NIL.html] .

The sequel, The X-Family, started airing in Taiwan on August 8, 2007.

Synopsis

Zhong Ji Yi Ban is a class in Ba Le High School designed especially for the delinquents and rejects that other high schools would not accept. Even so, everyone in the class is loyal to the leader, Wang Da Dong (Jiro Wang), who is KO.3, and would die for friends. Another KO. 3, Wang Ya Se, also called Ya Se Wang (Calvin Chen), and KO.4, Ding Xiao Yu (Aaron Yan) soon join the class and out of some fortuitous events, their lives become tied together and they become best buddies. Another student, Lei Ke Si (Danson Tang), who had been gone for a whole semester, rejoins the class. Although Lei Ke Se seems like a weak kid with only good intentions, Ya Se suspects Lei Ke Si is KO.2 because legends say that KO.1 and KO.2 are capable of concealing their true identities.

At the same time, incidents start to occur and the culprit always leads to Ya Se. But Ya Se is being framed by Lei Ke Si, who is actually the real culprit. Lei Ke Si makes Ya Se look bad so that Da Dong won't believe him when he says that Lei Ke Si is KO.2 . Soon, An Qi, who is Da Dong and Lei Ke Si's childhood crush, appears. This forces Lei Ke Si to reveal his true identity and fight with Da Dong (for An Qi). After Lei Ke Se leaves KO One, Xiao Yu starts to crush on An Qi. Both Da Dong and Xiao Yu fight over An Qi, but Da Dong doesn't realize his crush on the teacher of KO One, Tian Xin (Melody) until An Qi tells him. Soon, An Qi returns to America and strange things started to happen. Two more new girl-students join the class, and one of them has a crush on Ya Se. Although he is cold and refuses to accept her due to her behavior as a gorilla, he eventually changes and falls in love with her. At the end, Lei Ke Si returns to tell the gang how to defeat their enemy Hei Long. In the final battle, Da Dong, Ya Se, Xiao Yu and Lei Ke Si combine their powers and finally defeat the evil roaming around them, but the fight triggers a big explosion that causes both forces to lose their powers.
