A video many fans believed to be lost forever has finally been found, after 8 years!
Well, one very famous interaction between the two stars happens to be from a backstage waiting room, when Taemin couldn't resist filming his bawling friend Kai after EXO's first ever music show win with "Wolf".
But while the behind-the-scenes film of Taemin filming Kai is famous among fans, it was believed that the actual video which Taemin took was lost forever. (Taemin had mentioned in the past that the phone was broken.)
However! On October 8, the long-lost video emerged to the surface!
Here it is, the day that Kai couldn't contain his emotions after his group's 1st place win, seen through the eyes of his friend Taemin:
Netizens reacted with comments like, "Wow I can't believe I'm finally seeing this", "Taemin's laughing is so cute", "They were both babies back then!", "Heol, I thought that phone was broken", "This was Taemin's plan all along kekekeke", "Taemin is laughing so loud while his friend is crying uncontrollably kekekeke", "I never thought I'd see this", "I remember this! I was in high school back then", and more!
So where was this video found, after all these years? It turns out, the video was somehow in the possession of Kai and Taemin's longtime mutual friend, Kwon Ho!
The topic randomly came up during an episode of Kai's ongoing YouTube series 'KAIst', and fans were treated to the legendary clip for the first time ever. Catch the latest episode of 'KAIst' featuring Kai's good friends Moon Kyu and Kwon Ho, below! (The Taemin footage reveal happens ~ 16:16 mark.)
