THEY ARE THE SAME PERSON! STOP WITH THE JONGIN TO KAI, KAI TO JONGIN!
Jongin and Kai are two very different people.
Jongin is a person, a human being, the boy that trained for years and busted his ass in persuit of his dream. He gets tired, worn out, misses his family, yet keeps pushing forward because this is what he has always wanted - to be an idol, a dancer, famous.
Kai is the idol, what fangirls call perfection, an enigma. It’s the persona Jongin uses when he’s on stage because that’s what he gets paid to do - to perform Kai’s role with flawless precision.
Essentially, Jongin does all of the work behind the scenes while Kai showcases it to the world. It’s the same for every idol. Who you see on stage is not who they are in real life. So… yes… these are two very different people.
