On April 10th, a practice video of the EXO comeback song, “Overdose,” was leaked on to YouTube. It didn’t take long for SM Entertainment to step up and take action!
The clip featured an mp3 file of the 3 minutes and 25 second long song, as well as a clip of the new choreography. SM quickly shut down the video, as well as any other related content that had stemmed from the initial leak. The agency is taking this very seriously, and has released the following statement, “The said video was filmed for MBC’s Music Core and the song was not a complete version. Currently, we are deleting everything related to the illegally spread video and looking into details of the illegal postings. SM has immediately requested an investigation and plans to go through with criminal prosecutions and claim damages from those who have illegally posted or spread the footage today. The illegal sharing like this is a copyright infringement and is a serious illegal act, and we will be responding strongly to all parties who committed this crime. We are leaving a warning and requesting that there be no second or third illegal postings or sharing after this point on.”
The official release is set to drop on April 15th, and it appears to be most wise to keep it that way. Fans, what do you think of this leak and its repercussions? Share your thoughts with us as we all anticipate the official release!
