EXO’s Kai Was Not Jealous When SHINee Taemin Debuted First
EXO’s Kai shared how he felt when SHINee’s Taemin, who is the same age as him, made his debut.
During February 16’s broadcast of SBS Special- 10,000 Hours of Determination EXO’s Kai reminisced the moment when his friend and co-trainee SHINee’s Taemin made his debut.
They were both SM trainees who would spend all night at the dance studio practicing. Kai revealed that once he found out how good of a dancer Taemin was, he wanted to learn from him and together they advanced their dance skills.
Kai said, “Taemin debuted first as a member of SHINee. Some ask me if I felt jealous since we’re the same age, but I was learning from Taemin at that time. I knew that I wasn’t prepared to make a debut.”
Then he added, “Taemin came to visit me when I was practicing alone. I felt really good then. Because I felt like I wasn’t just learning from him now, but also sharing tips.”
