EXO Chanyeol Opens YouTube Channel Amidst CBX’s Conflict with SM and Fandom Truck Protest 

EXO Chanyeol carries on with his individual activities amidst his group members’ conflict with SM Entertainment.

On June 5th, EXO Chanyeol’s personal YouTube channel was launched. He announced the opening of his YouTube channel, stating that he will show his hobbies such as camping, biking, exercise, and more.


As many EXO members, including Chen, Baekhyun, and Kai, have opened their personal YouTube channels and communicate with fans in various forms, Chanyeol’s first personal channel opening after his military discharge has garnered much attention.

However, on the other hand, amidst the dispute between Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin with their company SM Entertainment regarding exclusive contracts, there are also people who are not pleased with the news of Chanyeol’s personal channel opening.

Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin have recently notified SM Entertainment of their intention to terminate their exclusive contracts. The three emphasized issues such as lack of financial transparency and slave contracts, while SM Entertainment claims that there is improper external intervention.


Despite the legal dispute, Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin are in the midst of shooting EXO’s comeback MV as planned and have emphasized their intention to continue group activities. However, if the conflict persists, the future of EXO’s activities may become uncertain.

In addition, Chanyeol was previously engulfed in a controversy over his private life due to a post left by netizen A claiming to be his ex-girlfriend in 2021.

At that time, A accused Chanyeol of fooling around with other women, including girl group members, YouTubers, BJs, dancers, flight attendants, while dating her. In response, SM Entertainment said, “We have no comment.”


After that, Chanyeol enlisted in the military and completed his 1 year and 6 months of service in September last year. 

As EXO’s comeback became apparent, a truck protest demanding the withdrawal of Chen and Chanyeol and the resumption of activities with a 6-member lineup took place in front of SM building on May 26th.

Since announcing his girlfriend and premarital pregnancy in 2020, Chen has consistently faced demands for leaving the group from Korean fans. With the addition of Chanyeol, some fans are demanding the departure of both Chen and Chanyeol.

Chanyeol is receiving criticism with the launch of his YouTube channel. Although it was reportedly produced in winter and released according to the planned schedule, some netizens claim his actions are seemingly ignoring various controversies.
