I was pretty excited to see the first episode of this Drama and I will say that I wasn’t disappointed. The only reason I watched it is because of Kai and I’m totally impressed by his acting. I mean, there’s such a drastic change in his performance that I was taken aback. Like, seriously, his acting in Choco Bank and EXO Next Door was well, you could say simple but watching Andante, I’ve fell in love with Kai all over again.
The plot is about a high school student named Shi Kyung (Kai) who, due to some circumstances moves to a small town and to a mysterious school. Getting through unfamiliar experiences, he realizes the meaning of love and life.
Kai is portraying a typical high school student who is addicted to games, lies to mom on small things, fabricates his marksheet and gets teased by his sister whose dressing sense I didn’t understand. Hats off to Kai for performing well as Shi Kyung. It surprised me when he executed the comical pieces. His dialogue delivery was perfect and I’m actually expecting more from him. Of course, NOT the kissing part which they showed in the trailers because I would kill myself if that scene ever took place (I’m a huge Kai fan and I can’t stand it)
This episode had the laughs, the slight tension of getting chased by bullies and an expectancy that you get as the story keeps going forward. I’m having high hopes for this story because of its plot and I just hope I won’t be let down.
They did show the heroin (Kim Jin Kyung) but it was just for a few brief moments and I rather excited to see how she performs in further episodes. I also wonder what the story of the side characters are because rather than the main story, I look forward to the different point of views; the drama and the feelings highly differ.
I think people should definitely give this drama a go because of its simple yet mysterious plot. If you do watch it, let me know your thoughts in the comments!
(Since its just the first episode, giving a rating would be unfair, right?)
Then, see you in my next post!
