How do you describe your feelings for iconic teen sitcoms like Saved By The Bell, Boy Meets World and Family Matters? Love. They shaped our adolescent years and guided us to a brighter adulthood. Andante plans to be one of the first in the next generation of teen sitcoms. From a popular leading man to an unforgettable story, KBS is ready to bring you a story to shape the next group of young people.

Let's take a look at why Andante will be one of the greats.

1. Music fans are already rooting for the star!

The leading man, Kai, is from the popular K-Pop group EXO. Asia is in love with this chart-topping group, and they brought their K-Pop tunes stateside in recent years. EXO is known for many hit singles like "Growl, "Call Me Baby" and "Monster". A portion of the viewing fandom secured. 

2. The young cast promises to grow-up together.

This coming-of-age show is about a mysterious high school being introduced to a city boy. Since the series is based in the remote country, everyone in the show will probably learn how to communicate with each other on a more personal level. Adulting the old-fashioned way. 

3. Andante will be full of laughs and heart.

What is the one thing many sitcoms miss in every episode? The ability to tug at your heart. It may be full of laughs, but the real life emotions of everyday life are, sometimes, non-existent. K-dramas always have a good dose of actual real-life drama and have the ability to bring tears to your eyes because the characters are so relatable.

4. Leading lady, Kim Jin Kyung, could be South Korea's next Tyra Banks.

The 20-year-old model has not only posed for posh fashion magazines like Korea's Vogue, W and Elle; she was the runner-up for cycle 3 of Korea's Next Top Model (OnStyle). Tyra is an inspiration to many with her entrepreneurial spirit and sober lifestyle, and the future is bright for this hard-working lady as well. 

5. Kai's adorable web series, Choco Bank, was a hit.

Almost 3 million viewed Choco Bank the first week it was released online. The 23-year-old singer's leading man debut was in one of the best feel-good dramas of 2016. The public couldn't help but love it! Since Andante promises to include all the feel-good aspects we adore, we should all anticipate stellar ratings for his first network series too.

Which of your all-time favorite teen sitcoms do you think it will surpass? Also, what are you looking forward to seeing the most in Andante this fall?
