Yet another K-pop scandal!
This time with SM!
This update has to do with what Tao said during a recent interview and the fact that SM has BLOCKED his official music video on YouTube.
This is going to be one ugly scandal.
According to Soompi:
Tao (Huang Zitao) recently had his Chinese solo music video blocked from YouTube due to a copyright claim by SM Entertainment, and now the agency is taking further steps to block other copies of the music video from the site...This is because Tao is still bound to his contract with SM Entertainment.
Ugh, SM. I cannot take a side on how I feel about the MV being blocked. On one hand Tao has moved on from SM and wants to do his own thing and I want him to be successful. On the other hand, it seems like Tao hasn't properly terminated his contract with SM and therefore still has to follow SM rules. Who is to know what exactly is going on?
Tao then made this statement during the interview, enraging a lot of EXO-Ls...
“I have been alone for the past four years; I had to deal with every single thing by myself. There was no one who helped me.”
No one can understand Tao's position (maybe other idols who originate from a different country and had to live away from family for a long time). So it's hard to see him get hate for being honest.
But instead of supporting Tao for opening up about his feelings, "fans" are bashing him for faking friendship with EXO and claiming to be alone...
"I GUESS THOSE BOND AND CLOSENESS WITH SEHUN IS NOTHING FOR HIM TO SAY HE WAS ALONE FOR 4 YEARS"
"And then his Solo album came out but still TAO DID NOT HAVE THE GUTS TO SAY IT STRAIGHT TO EXO-L THAT HIS LEAVING EXO"
"wow! Seriously Tao?! geez! how can you say all of that? Your not even officially out from EXO and you are already saying that!?"
It seems like there's quite a bit of controversy surrounding Tao's comeback. I really just wish the best for him. Hopefully, he doesn't let all the hatred get to him and things can get sorted out peacefully between him and SM.
Why do you guys think Tao is getting the most hate out of all members who've left SM?
