EXO’s comeback has just been confirmed by EXO-M’s own member, Lay, during an interview with CCTV during his appearance as a guest MC for the Spring Gala held on February 26th!
Earlier today, a fan uploaded a video clip featuring the EXO-M member who was interviewed by CCTV prior to his appearance as a host for their festival.
In the video, Lay addresses the internet rumors about EXO’s upcoming comeback by simply stating, “On March 7th and 8th, we will be having our second EXO [solo] concert in Seoul. We’ll be making our comeback through this concert in a very new and creative way and we hope you will support EXO.”
With such anticipated news, the interviewer asked for clarification, “So you saying that the rumors online are true?,” to which Lay promptly responded, “Yes, I am confirming [the rumors].”
Fans later uploaded a version that was subtitled for international viewers as well.
This will be the first comeback that the group has had since members Kris and Luhan filed for contract nullification last May and October, respectively. The two are currently still in a legal battle with their former agency SM Entertainment.
With Lay’s confirmation, EXO-L’s have been rejoicing to hear that the group will soon return with new music. Anticipation for their first release in almost a year has fans on the edge of their seats.
EXO’s first comeback teaser was released at the 2014 MAMA while their concert tour was announced last month and will take place in Seoul with five shows instead of four in Seoul at the Olympic Park Stadium in Seoul on March 7th through 8th and March 13th through 15th after seeing the demand for tickets.
