Many fans who were at the airport witnessed this and because of the sudden deterioration of his health, the other members all have cancelled their flights and seems like they will decide when to leave once Lay recovers.

The members are said to have been on their way to the Hokkaido concert on October 12th and 13th.

His name is B Free and he’s done things that are making me hate him more and more.

1.He refers to EXO Sehun and BTS as ‘gay’.
2. Criticizes people for illegal streaming and gets caught downloading pirated copies himself.
3. Claims that the Korean military service is the “Biggest waste of time in the world”
4. Criticizes idol rappers and than features on Mino’s stage at Show Me the Money

There are more. I really wish he would stop his SNS activities. Some say he’s a good guy in person but he told BTS that they look gay in person and than claimed that they plagiarized when they didn’t.

The rapper in question, BFREE has also been previously under fire for calling EXO’s Sehun “gay as fuck”. He later deleted the tweet.

Posted:Monday May 18, 2015 @ 2:45 a.m PST

With unsettled lawsuits still in the air between former EXO members Kris and Luhanand SM Entertainment, a final decision to settle with an appointed arbitrator has been made.

According to the judicial pool on May 18th, the Seoul Central District Court ruled and appointed an official arbitrator and is forcing compulsory mediation for the contract nullification lawsuits against SM Entertainment by Kris and Luhan.

If a settlement offer is not accepted by the warring party, the justice department may take the authority in their own hands and force a reconciliation settlement using the compulsory mediation system.

The justice department stated that if both parties, Kris and Luhan vs SM Entertainment, both do not voice an objection to this ruling within the next two weeks, the compulsory mediation will act as both a settlement and a final ruling.

Both Kris and Luhan’s attorneys stated to Star News, “We are currently reviewing the compulsory arbitration forwarded to us by the justice department, but we cannot release any detailed information regarding the case.

SM Entertainment, on the other hand, have not made any comments regarding the compulsory mediation ruling. However, they did state that, “When [these stars] have no concrete reason or proof to give up [their career] and are hiring the same attorneys to use the same exact tactics to [leave the group or company], it just shows that once they have debuted and promoted with the group and have gotten popular as a celebrity, they begin ignoring all contracts made with that agency and the agency’s interests to leave for their own benefit.

Both Kris and Luhan and SM Entertainment have been battling a difficult lawsuit, followed by multiple other countersuits, and may finally be reaching a settlement after the Seoul District Courts have come to the decision to appoint an arbitrator to force a mediation of reconciliation.

News started spreading on Chinese social networking platform Weibo that EXO‘s Chinese member Tao might be leaving SM Entertainment.

A gossip Weibo page started the rumor on the night of March 2nd, which wrote, “EXO’s member Huang Zitao nullifies his contract with SM Entertainment and signs with Huayi Brothers. He will also star in the movie version of ‘My Sunshine’ (aka He Yi Sheng Xiao Mo/ Silent Separation).”

Although it is true that Tao has joined the casts in the Chinese movie which will be released on May 1st, there has been no official statement that Tao has left SM Entertainment or has signed with Huayi Brothers.

The manager of Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming denied the rumors, stating, “False news could also be sold as widely-spread news, looks like some organization is having some plans. We should just quietly film a good movie. @Huangxiaoming @Huangzitao.” He also attached a photo of a Chinese character that read “Go away.

Huang Xiaoming is signed under Huayi Brothers and is also acting alongside Tao in the same Chinese movie, hence was rumored to be the one who connected Tao with a contract in China.

Not only have Tao and Huang Xiaoming spent much time in China together, when Huang Xiaoming went to Korea on a vacation with girlfriend Angelababy, Tao also accompanied them to go shopping.

“Tao contract nullification” has also been trending on Weibo, as many are currently discussing the topic.

Meanwhile, EXO is preparing for a comeback and is expected to introduce their comeback track at their upcoming concert EXO PLANET #2 – The EXO’luXion.

Kris (Wu Yifan) Former EXO Unable To Find a New Entertainment Company

Former EXO member Kris has yet to sign with any label or agency contracts after leaving the group and pursuing his career in China, despite approaching some of the largest Chinese entertainment companies.Industry officials estimate that Luhan, who also recently filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment for the nullification of his contract, will also face similar obstacles as Kris.

It has been five months since Kris filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and left to China. However, Kris is currently unable to find a new entertainment company.

According to Chinese industry officials, Kris first approached YUEHUA Entertainment, one of the top entertainment company in China, but was rejected when trying to land a contract. Kris later also met with Huayi Entertainment, but it seems that it wasn’t easy for him to get a contract. It seems that even the large companies, having the ability and power to shed Kris’s image as a “deserter” and make him a star, are hesitant in signing with him.

Because China doesn’t have South Korea’s idol developing and marketing system, China’s few large corporate like entertainment companies have a great deal of influence and power in the industry. But it seems that the two largest companies’ decisions not to sign with Kris will be a bump on the road for him in chasing the dream to become the “second Hangeng”. Former Super Junior member Hangeng (Hankyung) has reached the peak of his stardom in China after filing the same lawsuit against SM Entertainment back in 2009.

In a statement, SM Entertainment revealed, “The report on EXO and an incident at Nanjing airport is false. There was a small conflict between the on-site airport employees and bodyguards, not EXO managers, and because of safety problems while EXO members were going out of an airport where fans had gathered. However, everything was solved at the airport without incident.”

Amidst the first concert in the Seoul World Cup Stadium for “SMTOWN LIVE WORLD TOUR IV,” recent couple Taeyeon and Baekhyun were seen as a duo onstage during performances.

Performances for either group had included both title track and album tracks hits. All in all, Taeyeon and the rest of Girls’ Generation had performed their debut song “Into the New World,” along with “Hoot,” “Kissing You,” and more hits. EXO too had performed “Let out the Beast” and “Growl.”

During the concert, the couple was soon seen to be standing side by side, though only for a short time. Taeyeon, who had come out first to the stage, was reported to have looked calm and happy. On the other hand, Baekhyun, who had joined her not long after, had said to the audience, “A lot of fans have come to see us. Please watch over our performances until the end. Thank you.”

All in all, the couple was seen live for the first time since the scandal first broke out nearly four months ago. Nonetheless, they looked comfortable being seen together, and as there are no reports of any trouble from the fans, it seems SONE’s and EXO-L’s have begun to accept their relationship.

What do you think of Taeyeon and Baekhyun as a couple now?

Since news broke out of EXO Baekhyun and Girls’ Generation Taeyeon’s relationship, EXO has been on tour and Baekhyun had not released a message to fans.

Now, he has left a message to fans on Instagram.

 

Hello, this is Baekhyun. Although it’s very late.. I’m leaving these words here to tell all the fans that I’m sorry for the disappointment and pain I’ve given you. 

I’ve written and erased my words many times, but I felt as if I was just making excuses and didn’t have the courage to express my heart and resolve the misunderstandings.. I also thought that just saying this would also be meaningless.. So even now, I’m worried and my heart is uneasy that you might be hurt again because of this post and that I might regret putting this up.. But, I really wanted to express my sincere feelings so I’m writing this post. 

I’m so sorry that I caused pain to fans who have always been precious to me. And I’m sorry again that I hurt you more through the misunderstandings that came from this situation. 

I wish that.. our fans will no longer hurt.. Although I’m really undeserving, I will do my best to slowly approach you all again.. And EXO is a name that is so precious to me. I want to tell you that I’ve never thought of EXO lightly.

I will continue to strive to become EXO’s Baekhyun who does his best on and off stage. I hope that these words at least will come off sincere.

 

 

Kris (Wu Yifan),23, {Former EXO} Rumored To Be In a Relationship With Chinese Actress “Xu Jingle” 16 Years His Junior

Former EXO member Kris (Wu Yifan) made headlines again yesterday, when Chinese media reported that he is in a relationship with Chinese actress Xu Jinglei, who is 16 years his senior and the director of his first solo project – a movie titled Somewhere Only We Know.

Following Kris’ sudden withdrawal from the South Korean group in May, reasons for his exit have been widely speculated online. The report yesterday claimed that the 23-year-old was assisted by his rumoured lover, Jinglei, to depart from SM Entertainment.

According to an insider, Jinglei was attracted to Kris since his EXO days. Despite the huge age difference between them, the two were said to get along well and Kris was allegedly very reliant on the actress

Baekhyun finally spoke up regarding his relationship with SNSD’s leader Taeyeon.

Ever since it has been reported that EXO’s Baekhyun and SNSD’s Taeyeon have been dating, the majority of fans have responded negatively to the event.

The reason is not because the two are in a relationship, but because of their secret messaging through such social media as Instagram, when fans believed it was specifically for fan service.

From fans calling Baekhyun a traitor on ”Inkigayo” to Taeyeon approaching a fan to apologize through tears, some netizens have commented that SONEs’ and EXO fans’ behaviors are going too far.

Taeyeon has apologized via Instagram, and stayed true to her apologetic feelings even in public.

Now, a week later, Baekhyun too has spoken up to his fans.

Luhan “{EXO Kpop} Angry Message Towards Pain In The Butt, Annoying, Pest Sasaeng Fans

EXO-M’s Luhan has left an angry post on his personal message directed towards sasaeng fans.

 

A few hours earlier, he posted, “Could you please stop following us, now? Isn’t this too severe? However, I won’t say what kind of words you have said.”

His message, though short, reveals the possible implication that although the sasaeng fans follow all of the EXO members, their response and negligence towards their actions are seemingly worse for Luhan. Following Kris’s lawsuit against SM Entertainment as well as fellow member Baekhyun’s four-month relationship with SNSD’s Taeyeon, sasaeng fans have found many reason to snoop beyond the personal boundaries of EXO for even more insight into the group’s current condition. As sasaeng fans’ main drive to continue their pursuits is the root of competition against other fans, following the group members and attempting to derive as much as possible is almost a needed task for them to accomplish.

EXO has mentioned the topic of sasaeng fans during various interviews before, though it is the first time any member has directly warned them via social networking. This brings additional concern regarding the already huge amount of sasaeng fans surrounding the rookie group. From sasaeng fans invading Baekhyun’s brother’s wedding to the selling online of D.O.’s briefs (as well as promised underwear from Sehun) for $94, proper DNA included, fans have been notorious with EXO’s matters of privacy, physically, emotionally, and electronically.

It is said that if you google EXO online, such results as these come up: “EXO sasaengs,” “EXO sasaeng shocking stories,” and “What EXO sasaengs did,” among others. After all, fans know addresses, locations, and cell phone numbers, as well as how to install cameras or invade in men’s restrooms or airplanes and take their desired pictures with the members. Almost nothing is an obstacle – distance, time, money, and difficulty, can all be overcome by these fans.

Stories about EXO sasaengs have been nonexistent for several months up until now, so fans could only guess what has been constantly occurring under the radar.

Regarding the topic, EXO commented through an interview, “[The situation about] Sasaengs is serious. More than affecting us, it makes us angry whenever they harm someone that is in no way related to us or the situation,” adding, “It is disheartening that since EXO is famous for its sasaeng fans, all fans, loyal or obsessed, are under the same title.”

The activities of sasaeng fans affect not only the group, but fans, staff, loved ones, and special events.

What do you think should be done about EXO’s sasaeng fans?

Read below for what EXO said about Kris’ lawsuit against SM Entertainment!

With a successful first concert under their belt, EXO had a press conference to meet with media and discuss their concert as well as the issue on everyones mind, EXO-M’s Kris filing lawsuit.

When asked about the situation, the Lay responded, “We had an interview in China about the situation and we were very upset. There was a lot of disappointment and we were hurt. Due to rumors, EXO fans became divided and I’m upset there was this misunderstanding. I hope there aren’t situations like this in the future and I want EXO to become one.”. Chen continued on to say, “Just like how rain hardens the soil, our member’s teamwork has also become stronger.”

Suho said, “At that moment, the biggest feeling was confusion and because the concert was so close, it was psychologically and physically very difficult and painful. We were more worried for the fans rather than our concert. We hoped to give a perfect performance for the fans, we mentioned and discussed this a lot. After [the incident], we practiced really hard, hoping to give a great performance.”

Luhan said, “First of all, the most touching aspect was that even though there was only a week till the concert, the staff worked very hard to make a perfect performance [for the concert].”

Chanyeol continued on to say, ”At first, it was very chaotic and confusing. I was most worried about the performance for our fans. We discussed and talked amongst ourselves a lot and we practiced even more. Because we practiced so much and had more rehearsals, our bond grew stronger. I think that is how we created this perfect performance. I can confidently say that you will be able to feel the quality of our performance at today’s concert.”

Baekhyun said, “Truthfully, it was difficult to suddenly change the music and choreography, but I feel like our stage director, dancers, managers, and staff suffered [the most]. I really want to thank the staff for their hard work. Considering there was only a week before the concert when the incident happen, I’m sure [everyone] was tired and exhausted. And I’m very grateful towards the all the members very working so diligently.”
