Ok, All EXO STAN already know, what’s going on here.. But, atleast this one will become our history.
News, about Kris files for termination of his contract with SM Entertainment was like a nightmare for all of us.
Let’s see about the story from the beggining. Cr.Fy_EXO
On the morning of May 15, Sina.Com reported that “EXO-M’s leader Kris has filed for a termination of his exclusive contract with Sm Entertainment.” The article stated that the news had not yet been confirmed, and then listed a few reasons on why Kris might be filing for a nullification of his contract (none of which have been confirmed by Kris or his lawyer thus far).
After that, various Korean news portals announced the same thing, citing Sina as the source of the news. Upon getting in touch with SM Entertainment, it was reported that SM was not even aware of the lawsuit, and that the company had stated that such rumors “are unheard of.”
However, after a few hours, The Seoul District Court confirmed to eNews that they’d received a lawsuit request under Kris’ Chinese name. (The documents pertaining to his lawsuit can be searched on the Court’s website.) They also reported that the Hankyul law firm would be handling the case on behalf of Kris, and that Cho Bum Suk, the same lawyer who represented Hangeng in 2009, would be representing Kris personally. The law firm’s representatives have therefore confirmed that Kris has filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment for termination of his contract, and they expressed their wish to handle the case as discreetly as possible, without revealing any details to the media.
In response to the Seoul District Court’s confirmation, Sm Entertainment stated that they are “Still looking into the facts regarding Kris’ request to terminate his contract, “that “it is a rather bewildering situation,” ant that they will do their best to ensure that EXO’s activities go on as planned.
On the May 15 episode of M!Countdown, Osen met up with Suho in EXO-K’s waiting room, where they managed to ask him about his opinion on the dispute. Suho stated that he and the other members had a long conversation regarding the lawsuit and that they do not understand Kris’ action at all. He also stated that Kris’ behavior is “irresponsible” and that he clearly was not thinking of EXO (when he filed the lawsuit). He added that the rest of the members do not have issues with the company, and that Kris should “cancel the lawsuit immediately and apologize to the company and his fellow members.”
Regarding the rest of the members’ reactions, Tao unfollowes Kris on both his intagram and Weibo account, while Chanyeol, LAy and Luhan unfollowed Kris on Instagram. Sehun posted a picture of a question mark on his Instagram with the caption “…” while Chanyeol posted a photo of EXO’s logo with the caption “encourage the good, punish the evil.” Tao, however, posted this picture with the following message attached :
He posted the same message on Weibo and stressed that it was indeed he who wrote it:
Finally, Tao’s last Wiebo update:
~ And Some rumors that need to be refuted.
- SM has taken over the members’ personal SNS accounts and is posting on their behalf.
You do not know this. We do not know this. There is no reason for us to believe that this is true. Tao has already expressed his frustration over the fact that people don’t believe it was him who wrote those Instagram/Weibo posts.
- Their manager, Ahreum, was seen holding the boys’ cellphones in her hand. She was the one who updated their Instagram accounts.
No, no, and no. The photo of their manager holding a few cellphones in her hand is old. It was taken last year and she was probably holding onto to their phones for them while EXO was filming.
- Tao’s Instagram post contained some grammatical errors and was therefore written by a non-native speaker/someone who is not Tao.
This is not the first time that Tao has been open and straightforward in his online statuses, and the way he wrote them resembles the ones he wrote before. Also, people make typos and grammar mistakes while writing on the internet all the time.
- Baekhyun said that he got slapped by an SM staff member for not wanting to hand in his phone so they could unfollow Kris on Instagram/post on Baekhyun’s behalf.
This didn’t happen. Baekhyun never said anything about getting slapped/maltreated by a member of their staff.
- Luhan created a Facebook account where he stated that their management took over their personal Instagram/Weibo accounts.
There is literally nothing we can say to make this sound more ridiculous than it already is.
- Tao posted his updates from different mobile devices (an iPhone and an Android) so he wasn’t the one posting them.
Tao has both an Android and an iOS phone. Previous posts have also been updated using both devices.
- Luhan changed his header photo on Weibo to a picture of a galaxy.
Apparently, the header photo on Weibo changes automatically. The picture has no meaning whatsoever.
- SM artists have unfollowed SMTOWN on Twitter.
No, they haven’t. If anyone bothered to check, they’d realize that these idols were never following SMTOWN in the first place, or that they unfollowed the account months ago.
- Chanyeol and Sehun didn’t update their Instagram accounts themselves because they were performing at M!Countdown at the time.
EXO-K’s performance was pre-recorded. They filmed it before the news even broke out. Obviously they had time to do
whatever they wanted after that.
So from what i feel right now, that’s really complicated. The rumors really killing us.
Just one thing that we know, Our Baby Boy Baekkhyun really have a good heart.
While we’re there almost losing hope, he’s still there on Kris Gege insta shining brightly giving us hope.
We know that Everything happens for a reason, But Sometimes We Wish We knew what that reason was.
From now, Let just Hope All the best for our Boys..
