KBS’s upcoming drama “Miracle That We Met” announced that Kai will be joining the cast alongside actors Kim Myung Min, Kim Hyun Joo, Ra Mi Ran, and Go Chang Suk. “Miracle That We Met” will tell the fantastical story of a man who suddenly finds himself living the life of another man with whom he shares the same name and age, but with whom he has nothing else in common.

Kai will be taking on the role of Ato, the young, energetic messenger whose crucial mistake becomes the turning point in the lives of the drama’s characters. After his error proves to have disastrous consequences, Ato suffers various trials and tribulations as he attempts to set things right.

“Miracle That We Met” will be helmed by Baek Mi Kyung and Lee Hyung Min, the writing-directing team behind the hit drama “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.” Screenwriter Baek Mi Kyung is also known for writing “Woman of Dignity” and “My Love Eun Dong.” “Miracle That We Met” is scheduled to begin airing after the end of “Radio Romance” in April.

Contrary to her arrogant image, she thirsts for the love of Lee Do Ha (Lee Sang Yoon) and does whatever she can to earn it. However, blinded by love, honest and bold Soo Bong slowly transforms into a master of tricks.

Lee Seo Won will play the role of Jo Jae Yoo, a musical genius “comparable to Mozart.” His character is described to be musically talented but extremely cold and picky.

I'm so conflicted because I love actor Kai but I want nothing more than for the writer of strong woman do bong soon to be set on fire and be dumped into a vat of gasoline for that homophobic, rapey mess of a shitshow. I guess I'll wait for it to finish before watching
