On May 2nd, EXO‘s Tao appeared for the first time in public since the rumors surfaced that he would be suing SM Entertainment, following in the footsteps of ex-members Luhan and Wu Yifan, making him the 3rd Chinese member to leave the group.
He wanted to celebrate his birthday and his movie “You Are My Sunshine,” and because of that Tao rented out a theater in Beijing, China. He shared his first movie debut with his fans who came to support him.
After the movie viewing ended, he held a birthday party with all the guests and expressed his gratitude for the support he received in the most difficult time in his life and career.
He looked like he had lost a lot of weight, and in the photos we can clearly see he his leg is still swollen. Undaunted, he is currently pressing on daily, and going through tough rehabilitation for his injury, even though he is unable to do any hard exercises for now. When the host asked him about his further diagnosis he said following: “I didn’t expect the prognostic was that bad I always hoped it was nothing serious but I was wrong! I will need some time to recover.”
Tao couldn’t restrain himself from all emotions and he broke down in tears and said: “I will fulfill the promises that I made to all of you. Please give me some time and I will come back and stand before all of you again.”
He didn’t comment anything about his alleged dispute with the company, but one thing he did say: “I have a big surprise for all of you, but for now I need to keep it a secret, soon you will all know!”
Here, we bring you a small glimpse of what occurred at his birthday party.
Are you glad to see Tao happy and recovering? We need to give him some time, and he will return to his fans and his brothers! He even wore his friendship Cartier bracelet with 10 diamonds, the one he shares with the rest of the members.
Get well soon, Tao!
