On an audition show, a Chinese singer was asked, “Will an idol group in style from Korea or Japan, or like EXO, be made?” to which she replied, “It’s different. They don’t speak Chinese.”
Lay and Tao both wrote on Weibo that they’re Chinese and speak it fluently.
1. [+355, -20] That Chinese member Lay seems to speak so logically whenever I read his tweets.. He’s well spoken.
2. [+353, -19] EXO-M must be getting so much stress. Treated like Korean singers in China, like Chinese singers in Korea.. and their leader’s off blinded by money somewhere… Find strength.
3. [+261, -17] So many people jealous that EXO is doing well in China ㅋㅋ EXO-M’s a Chinese group by the way
4. [+28, -13] I remember Cho PD using EXO for media play when he released his rookie idols. I guess EXO is hot in Korea and China ㅋㅋ using their name for media play everywhere.
5. [+24, -3] EXO members all seem so nice, find strength. You guys have done no wrong. It’s the damn question at the fault. Fighting.
6. [+7, -00] I feel like EXO-M probably was discriminated against when they debuted in China and promoted there. They have two Korean members and their agency’s Korean.. Even though they debuted in China, China probably thinks of them as a group with Chinese members, not the group as a whole as Chinese.
Article: Kris vs SM, first meeting for mediation ends with confirming difference in opinions
1. [+7,285, -313] There are so many members and he’s not the only Chinese member, there are three more… For him to turn around alone like that.. He’s the problem.
2. [+6,742, -287] Failed all his acting auditions before being picked up by SM, invested in, trained, and debuted in China all for him to betray them. Get hit by a boomerang.
3. [+5,374, -179] Just stay there
4. [+4,735, -207] Kris never showed up ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
5. [+774, -52] I sincerely hope SM wins this lawsuit. Forget the company, I don’t like the kid for ignoring his fans and causing an entire mess then being irresponsible about it.
