On tvN’s variety show Honeymoon Tavern, which aired on the 9th, EXO’s Kai discussed how his views on retirement have changed.
During dinner, Kai said, “We (the group EXO) talked a lot about how idols only last five or seven years, and I used to joke that we wouldn’t last ten years, but we’re now in our tenth.” Tak Jae Hoon surprisingly asked back, “You’re already in your tenth year?” and SG Wannabe’s Lee Suk Hoon was startled and said, “I can’t believe you’re already in your tenth year! Wow, time flies by so fast. There isn’t much of a difference between you and me. For me, it’s just been 13 years.”
Kai continued, “I thought I would retire at the age of 29 when I was 20.” Lee Suk Hoon replied with understanding and humility, “I understand where you’re coming from,” and added, “But now that you’re 28, you might think things would stay the same at 38. But you see, I’m already 38 years old.” Kai answered, “What was I thinking?” and agreed with Lee Seok Hoon, saying that his thoughts on retirement had changed from when he was 20 years old.
