He says he wants to treat others well but he’s awkward when it comes to expressing himself.

Kai sometimes imitates Chanyeol’s knee-slapping reaction outside the camera.
At one fan signing, Kai promised a fan that he’d marry her in the future. The fan was a four year old…
This is an account from Kai’s friend who went to Seoul Arts High School with him: Jongin’s in love with the school store. He’s always buying “쫀쪼니,” a snack that the school store sells. Jongin looks like the type to be really popular among the girls, but in reality, there weren’t any girls actually following him around because they liked him. & The time he was filming all those teasers for EXO, all the guys in class were saying things like, “Woah! You’re finally debuting!” Jongin would say that he was so happy that he could die. Even the teachers teased him, asking him to sing or dance in front of the class. Jongin acted all shy, but he still did what the teachers asked him to do and slightly showed off. Ah, right! All the fans are noting how broad Jongin’s shoulders are, and yeah. Whenever we all needed to line up for something, the kids who stood next to him were really uncomfortable because Jongin’s shoulders would be bumping into them kekeke. Jongin’s also really good at running and he likes P.E. class, but he hates the heat. One time, he drank “Narangdeu Cider” for the first time and it was love at first sight. From that day on, he only drank that drink, and would make silly puns like “Do you want to drink with me?” (“Narangdeu” implies “Drink with me” in Korean.) Pics of the drink and 쫀쪼니 (the snack Kai always bought) below:
At the Golden Bell Concert, Kai’s back was hurting again. Before their stage, Suho was trying to help Kai out by telling him to lean on him. Kai shook his head and told him to stop because the fans and everyone else were looking. Suho reluctantly agreed, and throughout the perf, Kai was smiling like nothing was wrong.
Kai can be really dull and nonchalant with his fanservice. But if you catch him in his good mood, oh my god. He can go from repeating the fan’s name over and over again, saying “____-ah, I love you,” to telling corny jokes, etc.
About Kai’s dog, Monggu, he first took him home after being told it was was a toy poodle. He later found out that Monggu’s just a poodle, not a toy poodle. LOL He was lied to. Jjangu, on the other hand, is a toy poodle.
This is an account from a fan who supported Kai from even his trainee days. During his trainee days, Kai had a couple fans. Unlike Suho who was warm and caring to his fans, Kai was really indifferent to them. He just simply nodded and walked away when his fans would excitedly greet him. So a lot of people thought he was a pretty uncaring person. In reality, even if Kai acted that way, it seemed like he secretly took note of each fan and made sure to remember their faces. This fan saw him in the bus when he was heading home after practice. She wanted to talk to him but decided against it because of his usual cold demeanor. But then he went and greeted her first, and he had even remembered her name. Turned out he could be really playful and childish once he gets comfortable with you.
[PREDEBUT] ONE OF JONGIN’S MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASSMATES DESCRIBED HIS PERSONALITY AS “CRAZILY WEIRD/FUNNY.” HE SAID THAT JONGIN USED TO DRAW ONE PIECE AND DIGIMON ON THE CHALKBOARDS ALL THE TIME. EVEN IN HIS NOTEBOOK, JONGIN HAD HIS OWN COMIC STRIPS WITH THIS BUNNY CHARACTER CHANTING WEIRD INCANTATIONS. JONGIN’S OLD CLASSMATE ENDED HIS ACCOUNT WITH: “AH, THE KID WHO WAS KNOWN FOR HIS DANCING, THE ONE WHO TAUGHT OUR WHOLE CLASS TO DANCE TO WG’S ‘TELL ME’…HE’S ON TV NOW….”
