On September 19, KBS1’s upcoming Sunday drama “Andante” held a press conference.
Kai was asked about his different images on and off stage as well as his character in the drama. He answered, “Thank you for saying that I’m the sexiest idol on stage. I will continue to show my sexy side often. [My character] Si Kyung is really innocent and boyish. I’m very different above the stage and below the stage. I show a cool image on stage but I’m very different off stage. That’s why I liked fusing that part of me with Si Kyung for a different image.”
The singer-actor also talked about balancing filming for the drama with his EXO activities. Kai explained, “It was EXO’s vacation at the time. I gave up my vacation and worked hard filming. I made sure that it didn’t harm group activities.”
Meanwhile, “Andante” tells the story of a city boy (Kai) transferring to a school in a rural area and experiencing the true meaning of life and love. The first episode will air on September 24 at 10:10 a.m. KST.
