[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] EXO’s Kai talked about his highly-anticipated solo debut! Kai held a press conference for his first solo album “KAI.” The album contains six tracks including the title track “Mmmh.” Fellow EXO member Baekhyun was the MC at the event.
Releasing his first solo album eight years after his debut, Kai shared, “Since it’s my first time greeting fans with a solo album, I feel awkward, nervous, and excited. I wasn’t nervous until a moment ago. I had no thoughts, but after arriving here, I feel excited and nervous. I’ve showcased solo performances at EXO concerts and shows, but I’m nervous and excited because it’s my first time officially releasing a solo album. Baekhyun achieved the title of ‘million-seller‘ this year. I’m proud, and I’ve gained strength from that energy.”
After watching the MV, Kai commented, “My heart hurts. Watching my first music video made my heart hurt and beat faster. Now it feels real.” He asked Baekhyun, “Did you feel this way too?” and Baekhyun replied, “When I first saw mine, I wondered, ‘Why am I so swollen?’ and could only see things like that. Kai’s music video definitely gives off the feeling of artist Kai.” Kai explained that the title of the album meant “to open,” and it reflected his desire to open the hearts of the general public.
