The fans who have been waiting for Lay and EXO to reunite have finally gotten their wish. Many of them even burst with joy.
K-pop fans are ecstatic at the announcement that EXO will return to the music world on June 7 with the album Don’t Fight The Feeling. Another piece of good news for fans is that Lay will be reuniting with the group for the album. This is also EXO’s first comeback in over a year.
Lay’s enormous fanbase in China, Zhang Yixing Bar – XingPark, has announced that the male idol will make a comeback with EXO. Lay, on the other hand, is currently unable to return to Korea due to the outbreak of the COVID-19. Therefore, netizens are wondering if Lay will appear in EXO’s MV and if so, in what manner.
Previously, fans believed that Xiumin, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, and Sehun would be the only members of EXO who appeared on the album. Therefore. EXO-Ls are ecstatic to learn that Lay will return from China after a period of professional development in this country.
Although Lay will make a comeback with EXO, this time they still can’t promote the album with a full lineup. Recently, Baekhyun and Chanyeol have enlisted.
The last time 9 EXO members performed together was in the album Don’t Mess Up My Tempo, which was released in 2018. However, Lay only made a brief appearance in this MV.
The news that Lay will reunite with EXO sparked a lot of debate. Netizens recall earlier controversies involving the male idol’s private life. They claim that he did not deserve to be in the lineup of EXO. EXO-Ls, on the other hand, still defend Lay and support his return.
Finally, Lay’s reunion with EXO will have to wait to be confirmed by SM Entertainment. For EXO-Ls, this is a slim chance of seeing the entire EXO lineup again.
