Fans Triggered Because Of Kai’s Skin Color In New EXO Dolls

Kai’s is significantly darker than the others!

A new set of EXO figurine keychains has been announced for pre-order, and fans are excited to get their hands on this limited-edition swag.


Some EXO-Ls have noticed, however, that Kai‘s figurine is significantly darker than the other members.


Many fans are furious, annoyed, and downright confused.

  • “I’m not mistaken right? Kai is so much darker than the others…”
  • “Is that really Kai on the bottom right?”
  • “If you’re going to make the dolls, at least make them right. Why is Kai like that?”
  • “I can’t tell who is who. Why is Kai so dark?”


Despite the uproar from EXO-Ls, the company distributing the figurines (D & C Group) expects the line to be a hot seller.

“Since their debut in 2012, EXO has lead the way in the global K-Pop wave. D & C Group will become a cornerstone of global K-Star figures, and will grow with the K-Pop wave.” — D & C Group Representative


Standing at 7 cm (2.76 in) the figurines will sell for 19,800 KRW (approx. $18.61 USD).
