[+ 362, – 26] If Lay whose popularity is low within EXO leaves, he would end up not like Luhan and Kris but like Tao. SM isn’t trying to do anything with Lay but consider him as a platform to base their Chinese expansion upon. He’s pretty much out of the group but they’re keeping the contract because it’s mutually beneficial.
