    “Tao had submitted an appeal, but on the 15th March 2018, the court dismissed Tao’s appeal, so, he has to continue his exclusive contract with SM Entertainment.”

    Wait, so that means Tao is technically still in SM and still a member of EXO? I’m not an EXO fan (more of a casual listener but I do like them) but I thought Tao already left the company and started up his own career as a soloist. As much as I wish the 3 members would come back (I really want all of EXO to have like a reunion or something), honestly SM is truly trash at taking care of their artists and I hope they can leave Tao alone.

  • ARMY_IGOT_SHAWOL_HIDDEN_EXO-L

    Tao is an official Yves Saint Laurent ambassador
    In 2017 Tao had the lead role in a movie called The Edge of Innocence
    Tao’s official waxwork at Madame Tassauds Hong Kong was unveiled on May 2nd 2018

  • Qi Xiayun

    He presented Tencent’s Chinese Version of Produce 101 (创造101) in March 21, 2018.

  • Taoooooooooo <3

  • Mia

    He knows English

  • Kitten

    He’s not a member of EXO anymore, but I think he still… has to follow the contract??? Like until his contract (7 years or 10 years or whatnot) ends, he has to give a share of the money he makes to SM etc.etc. But TECHNICALLY he’s not “in” SM or “in” EXO anymore 🙁 I agree, I wish they could meet up, but SM honestly, honestly sucks at taking care of their artists (and their foreigners!) so. :’D

  • Joshua Marinas Alto

  • Ika

    Though I’m not his fan.. But wants to wish him…yet no reason!
