Jung Da-bin and EXO’s Kai headline KBS coming-of-age drama Andante

by chickachunga | January 11, 2017 | 2 Comments


Child actress Jung Da-bin (Flower in Prison) and EXO’s Kai (Seventh First Kiss) have been confirmed as leads for a new KBS youth drama called Andante. Andante is a coming-of-age story about a young man who moves to the countryside one morning and discovers a real live ecosystem. Kai plays the protagonist, a high school student named Lee Shi-kyung, and Jung Da-bin stars as the female lead; details about her role have not been released at this time.



Directed by PD Park Ki-ho (Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek) and written by Park Sun-ja and Kwon Ki-kyung of the popular youth series Sharp (which starred early-career Go Ara, Yoo Ah-in, Oh Yeon-seo, and Seo Joon-young), Andante will be fully pre-produced with an episode count of sixteen. The table read already took place, and cameras will roll shortly. The production company behind Andante is the same one that made High School: Love On, so pretty sure they know a thing or two about adolescence shows.

This project would be Kai’s first broadcast network show. His previous works were web dramas Choco Bank and the Lotte Duty Free-backed Seventh First Kiss. Andante is also a first for Jung Da-bin; it’s her first leading role, where she won’t be playing the younger version of an adult character for once. The “ice cream girl” has grown so much since her Baskin Robbins CF days, and though she’s still quite young at age sixteen, it seems she’s transitioning into leading lady territory. I can’t say much regarding Kai’s acting since I’m not very familiar with any of his work, but he and Jung Da-bin do make one pretty pair.

Andante is aiming to premiere in the second half of the year on KBS.

The youthful fresh faces of Andante’s rookie cast

by tineybeanie | February 2, 2017 | 13 Comments

Kai, Baek Chul-min, Kim Ki-soo, Ahn Seung-kyun

A slew of castings have been confirmed for KBS’s upcoming youth drama Andante, after initially courting EXO’s Kai (Choco Bank) and child actress Jung Da-bin. Kai confirmed but Jung ended up not taking the part, and Lee Ye-hyun (Master—God of Noodle) has been cast in her role instead. The respective friend groups for Kai and Lee Ye-hyun have also been cast, most of them young actors and actresses who are relative newbies with few projects to their name, but maybe Andante will be a chance for them to showcase their talents.


Kai and Lee Ye-hyun play a bickering brother-sister pair whose lifestyle drastically changes as their family moves from the bustling city to the quiet countryside. Unfamiliar with everything at first, Kai’s character struggles to adapt to his strange new school that’s attached to a hospice center, but later he realizes the true meaning of life and love through his experiences there.

Kai is the ultimate antisocial city boy who is a VVIP at his nearest PC Room. He’s the complete opposite of Baek Chul-min’s (Solomon’s Perjury) character, who is the beloved golden boy of their small country town, an elite student with a warm temperament and dreams of becoming a doctor. In contrast, theater actor Kim Ki-soo (Hello Summer, Seagull) plays the troubled school rebel who is threatened by Kai’s arrival because he thinks they’re similar and views him as a rival.

Finally, rounding out the good-looking F4 of Andante is Ahn Seung-kyun (King of Walking), who is set to become the talkative school gossip who goes around like it’s his job to churn the rumor mill. He has an insatiable curiosity about people, and his character is a cheerful student who is supposed to bring a comedic element to the drama.

Kim Jin-kyung, Lee Ye-hyun, Song Ji-hyun, Baek Eun-kyung

In the fearsome female foursome, three very different girls become friends with Lee Ye-hyun, Kai’s younger sister who’s described as a cosplay otaku with a prickly personality. Kim Jin-kyung (Yellow), who is best known for her reality TV presence in Korea’s Next Top Model and We Got Married, has been cast as a mysterious student, who contrary to her innocent looks and cool-girl aura, is so shy she can’t approach her fellow students.

Song Ji-hyun (Vampire Prosecutor 2) will play the class president who has a forceful, direct personality and strong leadership skills. Despite all that, in front of the boy she likes, she becomes a tongue-tied bashful girl willing to do everything for love. Lee Ye-hyun’s desk partner at the new school will be played by Baek Eun-kyung (High School: Love On). Her character is a sweet ordinary girl without any special dreams until Lee Ye-hyun, who sparkles with passion, comes along. During the drama, she learns to ponder her future goals seriously.

KBS’s coming-of-age drama Andante will air in late 2017.

EXO’s Kai Transforms Into A High Schooler For KBS’s “Andante”


On February 7, KBS’s upcoming drama “Andante” revealed a glimpse of EXO’s Kai at the first shooting for the drama back in the middle of January.

In the images, Kai has perfectly changed into the 18-year-old high school student Si Kyung. His face seems to reflect some sort of worry or fear, making fans wonder how the drama will unfold.




On the first day of filming, Kai lightened up the mood with a smooth smile and enthusiastic attitude. Even the director was surprised by his dedication when he saw that Kai had prepared various voice tones for even the simplest scenes. Kai went from sly to innocent depending on the scene, portraying the complicated mind of a high school student.


A source from the production team complimented Kai, saying, “Despite the cold weather and harsh schedule, Kai is continuing to film optimistically, showing his professional attitude. His character will be facing drastic changes later in the drama, so there is still much more that Kai will be able to show us. Please look forward to it.”


Meanwhile, “Andante” is a pre-produced drama that shares the story of Si Kyung, a kid from the city who transfers to a high school in the countryside. As he takes on various unfamiliar experiences, he grows and learns about the true meaning of life and love.

Stay tuned for more updates on the drama!

KBS Releases Adorable Behind-The-Scenes Cuts Of EXO’s Kai In “Andante”

kaikai 2

Kai is endearingly putting heater packs on his face, demonstrating a cute charm that contrasts with the charisma he exhibits on stage.

In January, the cold wave in Korea made it very difficult for the “Andante” cast and staff to film outdoors, but the outdoor shooting was prolonged and Kai had no choice but to deal with the freezing weather. Apparently, Kai has heater packs on his face to prevent his lips from freezing and causing him to mess up his lines.

A source from the production company praised, “Even when he had to wait outside in the cold for a long time, he had a smile on his face and brightened up the atmosphere. He shared his heater packs with everyone and kept talking with the staff members.
