EXO‘s Kai is a dancing legend in K-Pop, but despite his deadly charisma on stage, he’s quite the softie in real life. Fans even distinguish between Kai (his stage name) and Jongin (his real name) to categorize his duality. These 12 moments reveal his clumsy yet endearing nature that has us all loving the idol even more.
1. This Is Kai.
If you ever see a perfectly functioning Kai offstage, it’s probably his clone, X-EXO Kai.
2. Athletic? Maybe Not.
God gave him out-of-this-world talent in dance in exchange for having no other athletic abilities whatsoever.

3. Fired On The First Day
Thankfully Jongin’s an idol; otherwise, he’d have a hard time finding any part-time jobs.

4. Don’t Let Him In The Kitchen

10. Accidental Boomerang
Unlike his iconic “Boomerang” stage, where the top of his mic stand flew away, this bouncy green ball came back even when he didn’t want it to.
