Marami ang natuwa sa naging desisyon ng SM Entertainment tungkol sa South Korean boy group na EXO.
Isang malaking tanong ng lahat kung ano ang plano ng agency sa isa sa pinakasikat na boy group sa Korea at sa member nito na si Chen.
Si Chen ang nag-announce kamakailan lang na ikakasal na at malapit ng maging ama.
Sa nilabas na official statement ng SM Entertainment, tuloy-tuloy pa rin daw ang EXO as a group. Usually, sa situwasyon ni Chen, given na tanggalin siya.
Pero bago pa man daw mag-announce, nagkausap-usap na ang member at mismong mga member ng EXO ang may gusto na walang aalis o mawawala sa kanila.
Kaya nirespeto ng agency ang desisyong ito ng members. Tuloy raw ang activities nila as group, as solo and as sub-unit.
Ilan sa kanila ay magre-release na rin ng solo album. Sina D.O. at Xiumin ay naka-enlist na. Hindi pa sure kung mag-eenlist na ang iba ngayong taon except sa leader nila na si Suho. Posible raw mag-enlist ito pagka-release ng solo album.
Ang maknae ng grupo na si Sehun ang medyo matagal pa for enlistment.
Narito ang official statement ng SM Entertainment.
Hello. This is SM Entertainment.
This is a statement regarding the stance of EXO members and the agency regarding the future direction of EXO’s activities.
As EXO’s management agency, we have prioritized the members’ opinions regarding important matters including the direction of the team and members’ activities.
Before officially announcing the marriage of member Chen, there was discussion exchanged with the EXO members. As much as the EXO members have all experienced the pain of members leaving, they expressed their intention that they want to continue together as they have until now. The agency also respected this opinion of the members, and there will be no changes in EXO’s member [lineup].
In addition, there are members who have military enlistment approaching ahead, so it was planned since last year for EXO’s activities this year to be focused on solo and unit activities. The members’ activities will be revealed one by one.
The EXO members will continue to promote in various ways as EXO, solo artists, and units, and they will repay the love of fans.
We will also provide our full support in every way possible for further growth of EXO and the members.
