EXO‘s Sehun might have just given fans an update on the group’s comeback status.
Fans were shocked when EXO’s EXO-CBX unit, comprised of Baekhyun, Chen, and Xiumin, announced they would sue SM Entertainment to terminate their contracts.
According to a Yonhap News report, the members asked for a full accounting of their activities and the revenue produced since March, but SM Entertainment has yet to provide them. The members released a complete statement detailing all of their grievances with the company, in addition to an apology to fans.
We apologize to the fans for causing concern, we are deeply sorry.
Although we are currently in a legal dispute with SM, we will choose a gracious path to settle our differences so as not to create concerns for fans.
We are currently, at this moment, very scared and in fear, but we have decided to raise our small voices about the mistreatment we have received.
We hope that you will be interested in our story and our struggling courage. We would like to sincerely thank our fans who have supported us for so long. Thank you so much.
— Lee Jae Hak
SM Entertainment has staunchly denied the allegations of not providing accounting records for many years and insists that the members raised no issue until recently.
With this new revelation, fans have been worried about the members and the status of their upcoming comeback. The group’s release plans were already affected when Kai received notice he would be required to enlist on May 11.
In a newer statement, the three EXO members declared they would want to remain in the group and work hard to carry out activities. SM Entertainment also denied that the group’s filming would be postponed.
Now, Sehun has seemingly confirmed that plans are proceeding as scheduled! In the artist’s latest two-photo Instagram update, he first shared a photo of his legs folded in what appears to be a practice room.
The second photo appears to be a photo of a camera, similar to the mounted ones used during filming.
Fans are grateful that Sehun reassured them that the comeback is proceeding in this way!
I adore Sehun's way of reassuring us, he makes us reassured and calm in his own way, I love him so much, he deserves the most beautiful in this world ✨🤍 pic.twitter.com/qXKYV1XbRD
