While Baekhyun trained and debuted under SM Entertainment, he recently was a hot topic with fellow EXO members Chen and Xiumin after the three idols announced they were suing SM Entertainment to terminate their exclusive contracts.

Despite everything, it was announced that all the EXO members would participate in the comeback.

On June 12, EXO shared their pre-release single “Let Me In” with fans. The song definitely had fans feeling emotional and got them excited about what to expect from the rest of the songs.

It was only a pre-release, and the EXO Twitter account released the official schedule shortly after the song was released.

The poster had all the details of what fans can expect as well as a detailed guide of what is going to be released each day.

Like most idols, it wasn’t surprising when Baekhyun reposted the poster for fans on his Instagram on June 13 (KST). Yet, fans noticed something hilarious that seemingly showed the idol was shading SM Entertainment.

When Baekhyun posted the poster, netizens noticed that the idol had tilted and positioned it uniquely.

At first, many thought it was for aesthetic reasons until fans noticed that only one thing was really missing from the poster: the SM Entertainment logo in the top left-hand corner.

When netizens saw the post, they immediately noticed that Baekyung had edited and posted the photo in such a way that the SM Entertainment logo was gone. Although it’s not certain whether it was intentional, it seems likely with everything going on and fans couldn’t hide their reactions.

While it’s not confirmed whether Baekhyun did it on purpose, it seems hard to find any other reason why he intentionally positioned it in such a way that only the SM logo was missing, especially considering everything that is happening.
