Have you ever heard someone say that they were born in the wrong generation? Usually, people say this when they have a fondness for all things vintage. This ranges from music, films, fashion to even morals and love! After all, some people just like to be old-school romantics.

In addition, it is quite common for people to feel more connected to the bygone era than the present. Such people precisely are called old souls. Furthermore, old souls are also people who have inherent wisdom and are mature beyond their age in ways one wouldn't readily imagine.

Here are 5 K-Pop idols who we believe are totally old souls.

Something that became more than clear on the latest variety show "Honeymoon Tavern", is the fact that Kai is definitely someone who longs for the kind of love you see in classic old movies: the type that gives you butterflies and feels like a thousand fireworks going off in the sky. Even when it comes to things beyond love, he's still a person who enjoys and glorifies the old way of things. His beautiful mind is truly a wonder.
