EXO’s Kai Was the First to Arrive and Last to Leave as SM Trainee
EXO’s Kai shared his experience of pouring his all into his trainee life.
In February 16’s episode of SBS’s SBS Special-10,000 Hours of Determination, the EXO member revealed, “I probably spent over 10,000 hours practicing.”
“As a trainee, I always practiced, unless something special came up,” said Kai. “Even during Korean thanksgiving or vacation, I came to the practice room. I was the first to arrive and last to leave. I don’t think I ever saw anyone leave later than me at that time.”
Even after debuting, Kai often came to the dance studio alone to fine-tune his dance moves, and consistently built muscles in order to perfectly pull off certain dance movements.
“The time I spent on practice goes over 10,000 hours. It may have gone over 20,000,” added Kai. “If you work hard for more than 10,000 hours in your field, you can achieve your goal.”
