Eight years after his debut, Kai released his first solo album and said, “As this is my first time welcoming fans with a solo album, I feel uncomfortable, nervous and excited. I wasn’t nervous until a moment ago. I had no thoughts but when I got here I was excited and nervous. ”
He continued, “I’ve done solo appearances 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 ‘Millions of sellers‘this year. I am proud and have gained strength through this energy. ”

After seeing the music video where EXO Kai talks about his solo debut, Kai said, “My heart hurts. Watching my first music video made my heart ache and beat faster. Now it feels real. “I asked Baekhyun,“ Is that how you felt? ”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 conveys that Feeling of the artist Kai. ”
Kai stated that the album’s title meant “open” and reflected his desire to open the hearts of the public. For his goal, Kai revealed that he wanted to present his charm, his voice and his dance as well as his diverse sides as an artist and person to the public. He stated that he personally selected all of the songs to be featured on the album while pondering what would best suit his singing tone and what kind of performance he could perform on stage.
Kai shared, “I love EXO’s albums more than anyone, but I’ve tried very hard to come up with songs, dances, and clothing styles that I like a little better from my solo album. The people around me are different. While I’m promoting EXO I’m with the good looking members but now I have dancers so I wonder if people can focus a little more on me. ”
Kai also talked about getting help from his artist friends. Kai revealed: “Taemin First promoted as a soloist, he gave me a lot of advice on how to do things and what to look out for more as a soloist. ”
He continued, “I kept asking Baekhyun questions during the recording. The members helped me a lot right away. Instead of just saying, “Do it well, Waiting“They offered a lot of ideas on how I could produce a higher quality album and what EXO-L would like.” He added, “As each member advertises alone, they learn a lot and think a lot. I am curious to see what synergies will arise if we reunite as EXO after our promotion. ”
Finally, Kai thanked the fans. I shared: “With a grateful heart I prepared hard for our fans. It was a difficult and busy time, but I prepared myself while thinking about fans and I was able to overcome anything. When I first debuted, complacency and the goals I wanted to achieve as an artist came first, but I became sincere because I received so much love from EXO-L and because they spoke to me sincerely. I hope the fans see this as a sincere expression of my feelings. Rookie artist Kai is starting now so please take a good look at me. “”
