A word melee is brewing among fans and muggles ( someone who is a greenhorn to K-pop fandom land). Exo's Kai handler, SM Entertainment has a statement on a non-cable TV drama 'Andante' that is upcoming. The Exo idol teams up with Jung Da Bin for the first time. Megged under a coming of age genre, the presentation will cast him as a young high school student who leaves for the countryside. There, he finds a uniquely separate new experience. Airtime is set for middle 2017.

As the skeletal working plot is not enumerating specific details, fans are concentrated on Kai's ability to nail the character.The issue created a word battle royal that intensified into netizens running in a rampage.Surprisingly as well, the disclosure on the idol regarding a lead role caught many followers in disbelief. Besides, patrons of the artist have diverse reactions to the lead role being considered.

Does this ring a bell to the actor at all? Will he heed the fans' advice not to even contemplate doing it? While KBS maintains that the role is still in discussion, the drama team underwent a script reading previously according to Hancinema. Any muggle may not give significance to the brouhaha at all. But, to anyone well abreast with K- pop culture, the acting part means a lot to the fandom land.

The reasons were strong in the following per Allk-pop (collated as a reference for discussion). Note that the fans' arguments give a very strong stand on why they do not support him acting on public television.The growing discussion against the actor taking a lead role in Andante, netizens rant, are due to his lack of skill in acting. The only time he was seen doing the act, they continued, is on two web dramas '7 First Kisses and 'Choco Bank' where he reprised no other character but himself.

Some followers carried on the fact that him taking the role will be unfair to other artists who have spent time working and honing their acting skills. Some followers just don't desire him to take an acting vehicle geared for public drama production, period.Because of Kai's celebrity status gaining a lot of supporters, he is an idol who can boast of a huge following which is not doubted. Yet, a substantial number of the very same fans say he should not go on with the role. They are solid in saying that an artist's following should not be a guideline for his  handlers to even consider an acting venture.

As an artist, Kai has been a vocal since the group was on inception in 2011. He is an indispensable member of his group's successes since they debuted in 2012.Early on in his career, he had expressed not wanting to be an actor. As a young boy, he had always dreamed of becoming a ballet dancer. according to Inquisitr.He has skills in dancing that are very valuable in the crowd's promo ventures employing a point dance. Nevertheless, upon his father's prodding, he took on a pop audition that puts him as a crowd drawer in Exo's vocal performances.

Fans who hold on to his journey from being an idol to a lead actor, nonetheless, have all the generous words for him, One follower puts an end to the discussions in another perspective: The Law of Attraction - "What we think we become.Trying to Blowout someone else's candle won't make yours shine any brighter." It does lead to another question: What's in Exo- Kai that fans don't demand him to go into acting?
