In a recent interview with Sports Seoul, Kai sat down to reflect on the year 2016, his most important experiences in the past, and his thoughts and aspirations on the upcoming year. The EXO member revealed that on days in which he doesn’t have any events or schedules he has 5 hours of dance practice, 2 to 3 hours of acting class, and 3 hours of singing class. He added that his day is usually over at 2AM.
In a shocking confession, Kai explained that he never intended to audition for SM Entertainment, and had originally wanted to become a ballet dancer. His father told him to audition for SM Entertainment, which happened to be on the same day as an interview into an arts school specializing in ballet. Kai originally decided to not go to the SM audition, but his father told him that he would buy him a video game. Kai ended up going to the SM audition.
