EXO‘s Kai has just won the “Best New Male Entertainer Award” at the 1st Blue Dragon Series Awards, growing out of his adorable nickname “Variety Sprout” and becoming the newest “Variety King.” To celebrate, we’re here with 10 of Kai’s funniest moments on variety shows.
1. The Whisper Game
The Whisper Challenge is Kai’s greatest enemy, but he has his 40+ million views “Inside the Panty” video to thank for his breakthrough into the variety entertainment world.

4. EXO Ladder Season 3
The funniest and most wholesome way to mess up during the Frying Pan game.

This Netflix variety show is a must-watch, if only to see Kai’s heart blacken as he learns tricks from his senior cast members.

It’s the way he apologizes to the slice of bread afterward that makes this tiny tantrum adorably hilarious.
7. The Lottery in New World
The foreshadowing of this tweet was completely on point.
