  • Caoilfhionn Coyne

    I am confused, I thought that I’d finally be older than the Maknae, but sadly I’m less than 3 months younger.

  • cucumbernoona

    he’s 5’10 i-

  • zeberkiewicz

    why here it is written that his father is half German and Brazilian, and the other information is that his father is also half Polish?

  • 박지은

    his height is 181 cm, it was said on their tmi

  • Phift

    He said in the recent interview that his dad is American and his mom is Korean

  • Kitten

    I’m not sure where it said this, but I also heard his mother is half-Chinese? So he Chinese-Korean-Brazilian-German LMAO

  • Angie

    bruh he’s rly one day older and one inch taller than me what is this

  • Yuri ckemek

    Since he was born in Hawaii.

  • Yuri ckemek

    His father is from America but with a german, polish ethnicity. I’m don’t actually remember about the ethnicity, but his uncle stated this information somewhere.

  • Bibihu

    Guys, he’s not Muslim. His family is Baha’i. His dad (Nabil David Huening) is a known figure in Baha’i community. Baha’i people also use arabic names.

  • YoonTaeKyung

    Kamal is an Arabic name not Muslim name. and not all Arabs are Muslims

  • Cara

    To the people getting confused about Kai’s Nationality & Ethnicity:

    He was born in America– US soil therefore he is American by birth. He can’t be Korean-American if he still uses a US passport especially since here in the US, the government doesn’t acknowledge dual citizenship.

    His mom is Korean and his dad is of German & Polish descent which makes Kai half-Korean & German.

    He said that his father is American because he is probably already a naturalized US citizen born in Brazil. His dad is Brazilian by birth but if he renounced his Brazilian citizenship to be a US citizen, he is now an American.

    For Kai’s ethnicity/race:
    He is Asian & Caucasian since his mom is Korean & his dad has German & Polish roots.

    Hope that clear things up a bit.

  • Denise Kyle Besas Pudadera

    I have the same birthday as huening Kai 😁🤡🤩

  • Gigi Calder Tomlinson Cry Baby

    Huening Kai has a brazillian dad and a korean mom, on interview Kai said “my father is american” and he did meant to say that is south american, so it means that Kai is brazilian-korean , korean from mother’s side, brazilian from father’s side

  • Lawliet

    His father is german/brazlian. Since his father has the brazil roots but is german. Other for his mother is korean but has Chinese roots. Plus remember- Hueningai was born in hawaii of UNITED STATES. So, Kai is tentically korean-american. But has German in his blood.
