I'm not really a fan of Kai's acting. But I will definitely be watching this to see him grow :)

Sometimes I wonder how it feels for professional actors to act with bad actors. Does it feel like singing a duet with a tone deaf person?

Well this girl are never gonna find out

If you don't like Kai's acting why bother yourself commenting in this article! It's just so irrelevant that you've already judge him when the drama have not started yet and just keep your opinion to yourselves, if you don't have anything good to say to him because it's just making you bad. Okay? :) I'm an EXO-L as well as Kai biased that's why. I don't have anything bad to say to the haters but guys it's 2017 keep all your hates last 2016 and just move on. Yes, Kai needs improvement to his acting but his not that terrible if you watched his webdramas he's been improving since the day he started acting. :) HWAITING KIM JONGIN! :))

It's not that deep. People are not wrong to say that LEAD ROLES should only be given to people who act well enough to deserve them, which in this case Kai clearly doesn't have what it takes yet. If he can prove himself then boy good for you. Stop thinking that everybody is a hater lmao.

queenbeelove inceszlovesu Wednesday, January 11, 2017

I'm not a hater but like others have mentioned his acting ability isn't very convincing a lead role is a pre filmed drama is a big deal.. maybe he's improved so I look forward to seeing what he has to offer! But I must say he has a LONG way to go before he's at Kyungsoo's level.

PLFOREVER inceszlovesu Wednesday, January 11, 2017

No hate, but just questioning..?... As far as I know, he acted in two web dramas only..... I saw both and the chocolate one, I dropped after few EPs because of his awkward acting..... And his next try in 7 first kiss.... Well, maybe better, but still lots of improvement before he can be called a good actor..... I do not object him continue to act, but just not a main lead at this moment, maybe a second lead or some more supporting role would give him more time to polish his skill and experience, by the way, why ppl cannot express their opinion here? It is not just you are only allowed to leave good comment.

PLFOREVER inceszlovesu Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Also what ppl expect for the main lead is from a good actor, not a potential good actor that is unknown for success, do you get the difference?! Of course, every success depends on the story plot too, maybe if the role suit him a lot, he can show out his ability, that is good.

queenbeelove PLFOREVER Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Yeah that chocolate one wasnt so great but the 7 first kiss was adorable :) but I really wouldn't call that acting

sex scenes pls!

Foggy micki_minach365 Wednesday, January 11, 2017

a 16 yr old actress doing sex scenes? starting them out young nowadays, eh?

chocosoo Wednesday, January 11, 2017

what is SM thinking? are they sure that they would want nini to have that lead role this early in his acting career? the boy still has lots of room for improvement and i don't know what they're trying to pull off. people are harsh when it comes to criticisms and nini is sensitive when it comes to those things. don't want him to get unnecessarily hurt because of a management decision. =_=

micki_minach365 chocosoo Wednesday, January 11, 2017

there are tons of new actors that gets the lead role from time to time, if they have what it takes, they'll be praised otherwise... oh boy, at least they've experienced to be the lead

Myfirstkpop chocosoo Wednesday, January 11, 2017

I don't why not, when other member can. How can he grow if the don't give him a chance. He getting better every drama he returned. I'm so glads for him. You gotta give them a chance to improved ya know!

kimmiefonze chocosoo Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Its not like the drama will be presented for Cannes Film Festival. This is exactly what he needs to grow into a better entertainer. Yes, he's acting is no match to Kyungsoo but there's really no harm in trying.

chocosoo micki_minach365 Monday, January 16, 2017

what i'm basically concerned is the whiplash that he will probably receive from people who can't seem to stop at seeing that people are trying and be happy for them. also, i don't want to discredit his efforts into growing to as good an actor as everyone else is. it's just, for me, too early yet. other idols have gone thru supporting roles before getting a big break (some are even still in the supporting roles). sure, there were others who were given the lead roles early but were they mostly successful? well, if they are then good for them. hopefully jong will be one of those success stories. who knows? oh well, after all these, i'm hoping that sm did something good with this.

chocosoo Myfirstkpop Monday, January 16, 2017

sure, he can! i mean there's gotta be something that they will be doing when exo decides to not promote as a group anymore. but just like every other talent there, it needs to be honed. just like his dancing. though he is a natural, it took him years to be able to give the type of performance that we enjoy now. well it's just my opinion but sm could've taken it easy with him since his first projects wasn't able to impress that much people. just hoping that sm made a good decision that will indeed help jong grow into a better performer.

chocosoo kimmiefonze Monday, January 16, 2017

indeed. the drama is not for some big ass awards but we all know how savage knetz are to idols that cannot reach their expectations. what i'm afraid is that since it's a bit early, he will get too criticized and there will be like some prejudice that will be formed over his acting. so instead of having a big project early to propel his growth into a better performer, it might get stunted because of 'some really harsh' people. as much as we might disagree, they are still performing for these 'people'. their opinion matters and though validation isn't just because of the factor that they contribute, they could still tip the scale.
