EXO's Kai showed a more mature and serious side in the September issue of Nylon. The star posed in a barren studio while modeling cardigans by brands like Saint Laurent and Love Moschino.

During the interview, the popular idol talked about his love of books.

"I mostly read fictional novels, but not self-improvement books. They're boring. I like the fun of imagining when reading fiction." He said. "You watch movies, you see the story and what's visually planned, but you can imagine things while reading books. Even if the same characters are portrayed in a novel, I like that each reader sees a different image."

When asked about the kind of impression he likes to leave on people, he explained, "Every person sees me differently. Some think of my dance, other focus on lines, some focus on my emotions and then there is my strength. I want to be the Kai that everyone thinks of. I want to freely leave the thoughts of the people who watch me."

The star also discussed his presence on stage and how he choreographs routines. He revealed, "Overall, I feel comfortable and free on stage. Moving my body is the comfortable part, but the emotions I feel are new every time. There are dances that I perform happily and have fun, and then there are dances that I do to relay a message or feelings."

Recently, Kai, along with SHINee's Taemin and f(x)'s Krystal, modeled winter apparel in the August issue of W Korea.
