On November 11 KST, SM Entertainment released the first set of teasers and the announcement of Kai's first solo album. After seeing the teaser, fans have become ecstatic and impressed with SM Entertainment's design team.
From EXO's debut, Kai's name was a stage name composed of the Chinese character '开' pronounced as 'Kai.' The Chinese word Kai means open and he was the first member to be revealed when EXO first debuted.
Now, fans have noticed the same Chinese character on Kai's solo album logo. They have also noticed how the symbol is made up of four number 1s or two 11s. Many fans were also impressed that the teasers were released on 11/11, just as the symbols showed. Additionally, they replaced the "A" in Kai with the Chinese character, so K开I also means "open the door," signaling the opening for Kai's solo.
Fans were so impressed they were sharing what they discovered on various online communities and social media. Many fans praised the SM design team for their creativity and left various compliments in an online community.
