It seems within the past day, rumors about Tao were floating around again, saying that the EXO member would be leaving the group.
SM Entertainment caught wind of this and released an official statement addressing it.
On the 16th, SM told enews, “The rumors of Tao leaving the group are unfounded. There’s no such thing. It’s groundless.”
It all started on Chinese video site iqiyi on the grounds that Tao became injured during January’s MBC‘s “Idol Athletics Championship” and hasn’t been able to perform onstage since the incident. This sparked them to use words from an affiliated person saying that, “Tao expressed that he wanted to cancel his contract with SM.”
Unfortunately, the rumors spread due to a Korean news outlet quoting the false news as a report, thus creating this issue.
Hopefully this has cleared things up for EXO-L‘s. It’s nice that SM came forward right away and made a statement. At times like these, it’s good when companies address any issues head on so fans can rest easy.
