Kai thanks guard 'hyung' for 'secret service' treament in London, EXO-Ls say 'effortlessly funny'
EXO's Kai will be headlining the London and Sydney versions of HallyuPopFest, the biggest Southeast Asian K-pop festival
Where there’s fame there is a mob. Fans have been tired of K-pop idols being mobbed at airports from Stray Kids’ Han falling and injuring his arm to Enhypen being close to getting assaulted. However, there are instances where the bodyguards go all out from NCT’s bodyguard going viral for being strict with a fan to Enhypen’s guards pushing away stalkers. And now EXO’s Kai thanked the guard 'hyungs' (Korean term for older brother) for helping him when he arrived at Heathrow Airport for the London HallyuPopFest.
EXO-Ls (EXO’s fandom) were over the moon when it was announced that EXO’s Chen and Kai would be headlining the London and Sydney versions of HallyuPopFest, the biggest Southeast Asian K-pop festival. Fans were ecstatic to see Chen for the first time in public at the airport after he returned from his military service. And on July 8, we saw Kai arriving in London for the festival. And while fans tried to be respectful, there was a crowd as the EXO star tried to exit the airport which led to the guards almost picking him up and rushing to his car.

The guards protect Kai in London
While fans did not think much about the guards’ treatment, it was Kai’s reaction to it that had everyone finding it funny. While thanking the guards, the EXO member said, “The guard hyung next to me is really big. I feel like I flew in the sky. I didn’t walk. He took me.” Fans noticed that the guards were indeed huge and had Kai in his arms to the point that his shirt got crumpled. While they too thanked the guards for protecting the idol effectively, they found the whole ordeal hilarious. Many also couldn’t help but laugh at the way another guard was being careful with Kai’s handbag which they guessed was probably empty and just a fashion piece.
