Stage presence and performance are just as important (if not even more important) criteria as vocals and rap, and with EXO, Kai has added this essential part to what has made them one of the best boy groups in K-Pop history. Unique and captivating facial expressions, sleek and beautiful dance moves, a magical gaze that fascinates you and keeps your eyes glued to him, these are some of the qualities that Kai possesses, qualities that make you realize, this level of skill wasn't learned, he was born to perform. Still in doubt? (We wonder why you'd be anyways) well, here are 7 incredible stages that proves that he is truly the performance king of K-Pop. 1. "Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony" [embedded content] This has to be the grandest and biggest stage of all stages. An opportunity to perform at the Olympics, in front of thousands of home crowds as well as representatives from across the globe. EXO was selected to perform at the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang and they lived up to their title "The Nation's Pick", delivering a truly breathtaking performance that reminded everyone that they truly had the 'Power'. Kai opened the performance with a thrilling and beautiful set dressed in traditional Korean wear. His performance proved just how versatile his dance style was and his ability to truly entertain a crowd even with just a cymbal and drum. Plus he gave us one of the most iconic ballet-type spins that still leaves in our minds rent-free till this very moment. 2. 'Love Shot' - SBS Gayo Daejun 2018 [embedded content] One of the most iconic performances in K-Pop history, so iconic that fans and even other idols still talk about it to date. Think Beyonce Coachella's 2018 opening scene, that level of iconic. Again, the idol opened up the group's performance with an amazing dance set, delivering what we can only describe in words as the moment when you see a waterfall for the first time, it was beautiful, refreshing, amazing, and you just can't help but keep staring, basking in all its glory. Plus, he had a rose in his mouth which was as thrilling as it gets. 3. 'Tempo' Stage [embedded content] If K-Pop idols are thought "Facial Expression 101" we are sure this stage would be one of the chapters. His sheer determination and passion came seeping through with this stage. His aura, his movements, his presence, everything was all on point, serving what many would call one of his most dominating and best stage performances ever. 4. 'Obsession' Stage [embedded content] There is something quite thrilling and captivating about Kai in a crop top. Showing off his toned abs just made every move he made exaggeratedly marvelous. Asides from his charming visuals and his captivating stage presence, his body control was also equally amazing. His ability to bend his body while pulling off those incredible dance moves was quite remarkable. And he does it so effortlessly. Kai was rightfully an 'Obsession' as we were caught paying attention to every single detail of this performance. 5. 'Mmmh' Stage [embedded content] Kai is a true definition of performance art, he delivered one of the most unique stages with his hit song 'Mmmh'. He left nothing to our imagination as we were served with every aspect and variation of his style and charm. It was the quintessential Kai, we know and fell in love with but with an even more grown and matured twist, something that yet again is quite unique and distinct to him alone. 6. 'Monster' Stage [embedded content] 'Monster' was one of those moments that marked Kai as one of the greatest performances in K-Pop. It was a career redefining moment for him, his group, and K-Pop culture. His stage performance was even more thrilling, giving fans goosebumps moments as he solidified his stance as a true-born performer. 7. 'Ko Ko Bop' Stage  [embedded content] If 'Monster' marked him as a bonafide performer, 'Ko Ko Bop' pushed the ink further as he continued to remind everyone why he was one of the best performers in the industry. Asides from his intricate, intense yet graceful movements, his captivating facial expressions, and charms draw your attention and focus on him. Are you excited about his comeback this month?
