Anyone who became a fan of EXO after 2014 or 2015 might have been confused when they watched older videos and counted more members. These fans would soon learn that EXO started with 12 members but over the years now has 9 members. But the real question is why and how did this happen?

On May 15, 2014, SM Entertainment confirmed that Chinese member Kris had filed a lawsuit against the company to terminate his contract, stating a violation of human rights as the main reason.

A few months later in October, Luhan would follow Kris and file his own lawsuit against the entertainment giant to nullify his contract. His decision was based on his own health issues and the feeling that the Korean members were treated differently. At this time, SM Entertainment was quick to announce that the group would continue with 10 members while the ongoing legal battles ensued.

Unfortunately for EXO-Ls that was not the end. On April 22, 2015, Tao‘s father posted a letter through Weibo expressing his concerns for his son and talked about Tao’s withdrawal from the group. The letter stated that Tao had previously injured himself but had allegedly never received proper treatment for his injuries.

After an extended period of negotiations, SM Entertainment has finally reached a settlement with former EXO members Wu Yifan and Luhan

The two singers had originally attempted to terminate their contract with SM Entertainment on the grounds of unfair monetary compensation and lack of artist management by the agency. After many long months of arbitration and negotiation, however, Wu Yifan and Luhan have agreed to SM Entertainment’s terms.

According to reports, while they will not be returning to EXO, their contracts with SM Entertainment will be maintained until 2022, and will therefore have to share their overseas income with the agency. Upon hearing the news, many Korean fans have rejoiced, congratulating the agency on reaching a proper settlement.

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.

On May 23rd (KST), EXO revealed a music video teaser for the title track “Wolf” off their upcoming album “XOXO.”

The group has already posted numerous teasers ( (1 + 2 + 3 + 4) as well as a tracklist but fans are in for more surprises with the upload of this music video snippet.

The video opens with a sinister mood mirrored by the group’s animalistic dance. The fast camera angle changes as well as the continuous growling sounds in the background amp up the atmosphere of the trailer.

A variety of special effects are present as well such as bright red eyes and shining blue tattoos on the hands and arms of different members. Despite these haunting visual effects, the official version of the song was not played in the background, leaving listeners still slightly curious as to what EXO will bring with this new album.

Although “XOXO” will be released on June 3rd, the group will begin their on-stage promotions for the track on May 30th.
