Baekhyun, Chen, and Xiumin rebuts SM’s statement and promises to continue activities as EXO 

On the morning of June 2nd, 3 EXO members Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumn (EXO-CBX) expressed their stance through a legal representative, stating: “SM’s claim to intervene in external forces is merely a false fact to evade the essence of the artists’ legitimate exercise of rights and further mislead public opinion.


The feelings of the artists who heard the official statement from SM, which calls for a third external force, are very miserable. I feel even more miserable because SM’s perspective on artists seems to have been revealed. Is it the third force again?

The legal representative further affirmed that SM already identified Big Planet Made Entertainment and MC Mong as the external force approaching the three artists with evil intentions. He said, “Our artists asked and listened to many people around them what was the right thing to do and how to come up with a wise solution. There were family members, acquaintances around him, seniors, juniors in the music industry, colleagues, and even staff members who worked with us. Some gave us worrisome stories, some gave us warm encouragement and others gave us support. I have to ask you again whether all of these people are the third forces, the impure forces, the evil forces.”


The lawyer continued, “Our artists are definitely adults who can think for themselves and take responsibility for their decisions. And it’s an independent thinker and judge. I had doubts for decades, and I had to ask questions that I didn’t dare to bring up when I was a rookie, so I had the courage to be so scared and difficult”. 

Moreover, the lawyer added, “Our artists are able to judge and act on their own. The decision to find their rights, such as asking for settlement data, was made by our artists themselves after a long period of thinking and agonizing, not by any means intervening. Furthermore, SM claims that it has signed or attempted a double contract with our artists, and Baekhyun, Chen, and Xiumin have not signed or attempted any other exclusive contracts other than the existing exclusive contracts currently signed with SM. SM should refrain from making false claims”.


The statement concluded, “Our artists are looking to continue their EXO activities faithfully with other EXO members even if they terminate their exclusive contract with SM. In fact, the artist preemptively suggested a negotiation plan to work with EXO even if Baekhyun, Chen, and Xiumin leave SM. Apart from solving the legal relationship with SM, the artists are deeply grateful for the great love and support that fans have sent to EXO for a long time. And no matter what form of legal issues are resolved in the future, we will continue to work hard and faithfully as a team called EXO”.
