  • Kess Aleir

    This goes to show how one can emerge out of a well known kpop boy group and still be successful. Wishing him all the best in his acting career..!!
    Kris Fighting..!!!!

  • renata

    what a successful solo career!! *__________________*

  • Ren

    I thought he’s only a rapper buy man….. his voice it’s really good.

  • Bantu-hime

    I can’t believe SM just let him suffer with that heart condition. That’s insane. Myocarditis is when the inner layer of the heart is inflamed. The fact that they didn’t take that seriously speaks volumes about their professionalism. I KNEW there was something off with the whole “he just left without telling anyone” bullsh!t.

  • Shree

    To be honest I got to know him during his solo activites and later on i got to know he was an EXO member. And also after knowing him I got to know EXO.

  • Chess Bernardo

    Kris likes playing basketball. He was a team captain of his school’s basketball team when he was 15.

    EXO Korean Showcase’s Official English Subtitle was translated by Kris.

    Kris said he isn’t good in saying something sweet.

    Kris helps EXO with fashion/shopping.

    Luhan said that when Kris talks in his sleep, he talks in Korean, English, Mandarin and Cantonese.

    Kris loved singing in the dorms. Luhan would laugh at him while Tao likes listening to Kris singing.

    Tao and Kris were really close, fans started creating fanfics and photoshop pictures of the two getting intimate. This lead to Kris getting weirded out. Because of this the two became distant.

    Ps. To think of it, Kris is much better off as a solo artist even though I miss the times he was still in EXO. Such memorable times.
