EXO-L‘s and Kai-stans alike, the moment we have all been waiting for has finally come! Kai will be making his official acting debut. To make the news even sweeter, he has landed the lead role!
While Kai appeared in the EXO-focused web drama, ‘EXO Next Door‘ earlier in 2014, it was a small part that only left his fans wanting more. It seems like their wishes have been granted!
The new web drama is currently titled, ‘Choco Bank‘, and contains six 10-minute episodes. The plot will focus on Kai’s character, Kim Eun Haeng; A young man in his early twenties, fresh out of college and looking to start in the business world. It seems like this will be a family-based, corporate drama, although the full plot details have yet to be released.
Filming is scheduled to begin next month- which happens to be the same time that EXO will be touring in North America. Kai will definitely have a busy schedule in February!
I love that more EXO members are finally branching out and doing new and exciting activities! While D.O. is quickly becoming a major player in the acting world, Lay has also made his mark acting in China. Chanyeol and Suho have also been busy acting in various projects. Baekhyun will be filming soon for the movie ‘Moon Lovers‘, Xiumin recently made his debut in the web drama, ‘Falling for Do Jeon‘, and Chen recently starred in the musical ‘In the Heights.’ The only EXO member left to make his official acting debut is Sehun. If his adorable portrayal of himself in ‘EXO Next Door’ is any indication, we can hope for his debut soon as well!
