EXO‘s Kai seems to be spending the Lunar New Year with his family. And although the idol clearly is enjoying his well-deserved rest, that did not stop him from gifting his fans a bunch of content.

He uploaded a video to his YouTube channel that showed him talking about his Lunar New Year traditions. And he also uploaded a bunch of photographs taken from the video to Twitter.
The photographs showed off…
His first attempt at making tteokguk, a slice rice cake soup, a traditional Korean dish to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
The envelopes he made so he could give money to his niece and nephew.
And the New Year’s greeting he wrote to fans. And after much deliberation, Kai decided on writing “let’s have peace.”
Kai also took to Bubble (an app where idols can message fans) to share even more photos. He showed himself visiting his niece and nephew to give them money and spend quality time with them.

But perhaps the most heartwarming content was what Kai shared on Instagram.
Although the photographs were not much different than the ones, he uploaded to Bubble, showing him spending time with his family.
Showing they likely spent time at an amusement park together.
Posing for a goofy photograph inside an egg.
And checking on his nephew, who clearly wanted to join in on the fun.
But his caption for his Instagram post tugged at his fan’s heartstrings.
Two of the photographs he included in the post were of his mother taking care of him.
And then the two sharing a warm embrace.
Kai simply captioned his post, “Still a baby to my mom.”
And, of course, he had to reference his egg photographs with the chick emoji.
His fans understandably felt emotional at how Kai continually demonstrates his love for his family members.

And reminisced about how the idol has consistently demonstrated the importance of family no matter how much he has grown.
