The "Mmmh" singer then talked about his early debut days, and what is the most important thing he learned.
He shared that EXO made their debut with the song entitled "MAMA," which according to Kai, "didn't do very well."
EXO Kai unveiled that not only they were not receiving enough response from K-pop fans, but they were also getting a lot of negative comments - which made it difficult for them.
Despite the hardship they were experiencing, Kai realized the most important thing to do back then especially when he was struggling.
He stated that the most important thing he did before was to show everyone that he is a good person and to be a good person in the future as well.
After five years since becoming an SM trainee, EXO Kai finally joined Instagram in March 2015. His account already amassed over 350,000 followers after its launch.
However, Kai suddenly stopped using the account, and in three years, he created a new Instagram account, which he uses up until now. You can follow him here!
