EXO's Kris files a lawsuit to terminate his contract with SM


Article: EXO Kris's lawyer, "He has requested to terminate his exclusive contract. We will handle the matter quietly"

Source
: E-News via Nate

1. [+191, -12] I'm not an EXO fan but I think this shows a bigger problem with Chinese kids. How can he do this to his members in the middle of promotions?

2. [+159, -7] Seems like a Chinese company is willing to pay the lawsuit fees to get him to join their company, exactly like what happened with Hangeng. He doesn't need to promote in Korea anyway so obviously he's throwing away the rest of his members...

3. [+120, -18] Gotta give it to the lack of work ethic with the Chinese.

Article: EXO Kris requests contract termination to SM... "Papers have been submitted today"

Source: Korean Econ via Nate

1. [+718, -108] I don't like SM but this proves why you shouldn't train Chinese stars. He's backstabbing the company exactly like Hangeng did. The Chinese do not know who it was that made them whot hey are right now. Soo Man-ah, just kick him out of the country!

2. [+632, -45] Like Hangeng, don't they make more money in China anyway? He probably wants to live getting top star treatment in Korea. If this is true.

3. [+453, -61] So he requested this to the same lawyer Hangeng used. This is why I don't like Chinese members being added to groups. I already knew Kris would do this when I saw him on varieties. Aigoo, SM are you stupid? You already got backstabbed by Hangeng, and now this again?

1. [+4,581, -198] Right on time for mentor appreciation day, he backstabs mentor Lee Soo Man!

2. [+3,205, -191] First he disappeared and now he comes back with a lawsuit. I knew this would happen since last year, that another Hangeng case would happen.

3. [+2,614, -151] Talk about backstabbing.

4. [+2,824, -490] Really... with TVXQ too, is SM just about slave contracts..

Article: Seoul District Court, "Papers have been submitted for Kris's lawsuit against SM Entertainment"

Source: 10asia via Naver

1. [+823, -81] For him to have filed a lawsuit while in a position that he's dreamed of, it's obvious the issue isn't anything light. SM does have quite a lot of secrets...

2. [+432, -36] With TVXQ and now this, there seems to be a problem within SM.

3. [+487, -215] What in the world.. I'm a fan but what about the other members who've suffered with him? The kids who worked hard on broadcast with their injured bodies... Don't do this, your concert's not far away either.

4. [+180, -12] The second Hangeng scandal...

5. [+183, -34] So is SM still doing slave contracts?

Article: SM reps, "We are surprised at Kris's request to terminate his contract"

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+615, -57] If he wanted to leave, why not before the comeback or at least after this promotion ends? What's the point of doing this in the middle of their promotions? Talk about backstabbing..

2. [+432, -50] I just hope EXO doesn't have to go down the path of TVXQ

3. [+328, -17] Right around their comeback...

4. [+239, -30] No... this can't be true...

5. [+124, -16] People keep blaming slave contracts but... do these kids not realize that they're signing into being slaves? Other singers in smaller companies have slave contracts without even being able to perform on music programs. SM has always supported EXO, putting them in top hotels and they probably make a reasonable amount of time. They're top class slaves compared to SM in the past. SM needs to get rid of their management system. They can't handle anything from dating scandals to even having a lawsuit filed.. tsk tsk tsk.

  1. This just tells SO much about SM and their contract terms and agreements for them to have this happen to them yet AGAIN.

  3. I'm the furthest thing from a SM fan being a Cassie and chanjo, but as anyone stop to think that maybe the reason he's leaving is because he's scared of the crazy saesangs etc and the life isn't what he thought it would be like??

  16. uhmmmm SME has two other chinese members of Super Junior who they treat like they're not ~officially~ a part of the group and would actually have good reason to leave, as did Hangeng. Chinese members leave that company less than their Korean ones. This xenophobia is so gross.

    Exactly. People calling him traitor needs to stop. For him to go as far as law suit against SM shows that something seriously is going on. I seriously hate SM at how they treat their artist, you will think they learned from their mistakes.

    comments like these are so wrong. We don't even know why Kris decided to terminate his contract but since that blind item is true then he has been feeling this way for awhile.


    tbh it sounds like it has nothing to do with work ethic and everything with the idol world not being what Kris thought it was going to be. I hope things get smoothed out and the best happens for Kris. It's sucks a shit ton to not see EXO as OT12 (especially at their 1st concert) but if this is what Kris wants then we should respect that.

    liiiike... kris is an overall stupid person idky people think it's okay to base all chinese people off of him? like look at victoria... fei... jia... etc. who all work hard and are chinese. It's not because he's chinese it's because he's lazy and has literally nothing to contribute to the group so there's no reason for him to be there and work hard when he's never going to have his moment.

    Are they seriously defending SM in this? This has happened so many times and SM never changes because people continue to blame the people who leave instead of the root of the problem.
    Good luck getting out of there Kris. If your health (mental or physical) is deteriorating due to your work conditions get the hell out.

  45. Glad that he's leaving EXO tbh

  46. I've dealt with DBSK lawsuit drama and I barely survived. I refuse to deal with this new fandom drama. I can't anymore.

    I don't blame anyone suing and standing up for themselves, but JFC couldn't he have waited until after the concert at the very least? The timing is so fucking side-eye worthy. And it's not even renegotiation he's doing. He wants nullification. He wants out and throwing everyone else under the bus.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am really worried for Kris right now. His image in Korea was never perfect when Exo was 12 members.....before growl promotions when he first had his disapperance act he was sworn at terribly by k-fans and even right now he's being called some horrible names.

    He is the least popular member in korea due to that reason and his image was getting better and he had gained fans during showtime due to his dorky side that kfans fell for...

    but now im worried that he will never come back to being loved again and reading the korean comments about him makes my heart hurt :(

    5. [+124, -16] People keep blaming slave contracts but... do these kids

  51. if kris suffers so much, what about the other 3 chinese members? especially yixing? did he ask them to join the lawsuit but they rejected? or is kris really backstabbing them idk :(

    ReplyDelete
  52. Saw this and thought I'd share:
    Kris is not the kind of person to pull this off just in a matter of
    minutes. He probably had been thinking about this for a long time,
    possibly trying to come to an agreement with SM Entertainment without
    filing a lawsuit. Now he never told us about his family, but I thought
    it was obvious there was some situation with his family. Why else would
    he never talk about his family, why would he leave for his family
    suddenly last year and why would he have multiple names (didn't he
    change his name?)


    All I can say is that, family seems to be important to Kris on another
    level - different from most members, and as long as we don't know the
    facts, we shouldn't be so quick to judge him. We don't know what really
    went down, how long he's been trying to fix it silently. I hope for Kris
    that he gets what he wants and I hope SM Ent is willing to resolve this
    without him having to leave, but I doubt that. If so I'd like to thank
    Kris for being part of EXO anyways, and I hope he's happy once he's
    free.

    ReplyDelete
  78. there was a list posted of his reasons for leaving though, none of them were unfair treatment. Basically because he realized there was no reason to be in the group, he wanted to act, and he didnt fit in with the other members.

  99. i get the boohoo over sm or kris, whatever side you're taking, but let's not forget there are 11 members in exo (now) who are going to suffer because of kris. i feel really bad for them, and especially since kris is throwing them under the bus to get out of the contract. his reasons are that he doesn't get enough time with his family, he doesn't get along with exo, and he wants to go into acting but sm makes him stick to rapping.


    sounds to me like he's ready to go hightail it over the china. good for him, but it's pretty backstabbing to the rest of exo if you ask me. i don't care how sm feels about it.

    ReplyDelete
  100. It's the underlying truth.
    Hangeng is a friggin a lister in China. He never would have gotten that position had he not left SM on the flip side he wouldn't have attained his initial fanbase if he didn't go to sm first. It's really pick your poison.

    ReplyDelete
  101. As a black kpop fan, I 1000% percent agree with you. So much racism and discrimination. They take one look at him, see he's Chinese and make gross accusations about him.

  103. Exo fans stay strong

    ReplyDelete
  104. Let's just be real. SM treats their idols - especially their Chinese idols -
    like shit.

    Hangeng. JYJ. Now Kris.

    So many idols just stay with them because they have no other options or
    are afraid of standing up for themselves. At least Kris might be able to still
    have a career in China but SM will basically make sure he can never work in
    Korea agian.

    And we all know that Chinese idols/trainees get treated like shit at SM.

    And if he loses and he still has to be in the group, his other members might
    not treat him well.

    Now that it's out it's best he just fucking escape that monstrous company
    for good.

    um, hello, how about you blame SM? this isn't the first time it's happened, and on one of the occasions that it has, it was with three KOREAN members of tvxq. furthermore, it's not like you can just pull out a lawsuit from your butt and slam it into court, this shit takes ages to plan, so i'm sure that kris had no idea that this was gonna happen in the middle of a comeback when he first planned it all out.

    While any of these theories might bet the truth, it can also be an entirely different story. Is it that hard to wait for the details from the parties involved to come out before we create another tangled web of mess?

  118. Kris is hot! Especially in the last pic. :')

    ReplyDelete
  119. If he wanted to leave then fine, but do so after your group is finished with promotions. To do this during their comeback shows his selfishness & he only saw himself. What about your members? Things can get put on hold again because of his actions.
    He's suing Kim Young Min over his contract, not LSM. His lawyers want to end this quietly as well so it seems he's trying to join another company.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Yes but as you can see these type of issues seem to be affecting their male group … (??)

    ReplyDelete
  121. After going through this multiple times, one would think that SM would learn to handle things better ㄱ.ㄱ

    ReplyDelete
  122. also, i don't think that hangeng and now kris have sued bc that is chinese culture. i feel that it's bc sm is biased towards koreans. yes it's a korean company, but the bias is so obvious

    ReplyDelete
  123. okay yeah i said that but that has nothing to do with SM the company

    ReplyDelete
  124. Dear god those comments made me boiling angry. wtf knets?

    ReplyDelete
  125. SM haven't learned their lesson from SJ and DBSK. I thought they're doing their idols a favor but it's sad they don't.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'm on the verge of tears right now, but I can't cry even though it's been about 2 hours cause the news still hasn't sunk in.. I don't know what to believe at the moment.. but yes a fandom hug seems necessary, thank you.. group hug everyone ;;

    ReplyDelete
  127. he was my bias
    *cries*

    ReplyDelete
  128. well you have to realise that Kris most likely ended his dream of being an idol BECAUSE of his fans..I mean it was unanimous that EXO has the worst fans...so don't go looking down on him.

    ReplyDelete
  129. i thought that was just them trying to figure out what the fuck was going on. i didn't think it was them saying it was true.

    ReplyDelete
  130. shit like this makes me think of my bias group still working under sm. it makes me appreciate that they go through and went through possible slave contracts for US FANS or to pursue their dreams. Im so glad Kris is backing down if he can't handle it. it must've crushed his spirit in order for him to do this. EXO&Kris Fighting! <sad that i had to separate those 2 words :(

    ReplyDelete
  131. But why... Is money really that big of an issue that he would leave his members? He seemed really happy when he's with them ;_; if not, that must be because of how sm treats him...

    ReplyDelete
  132. Seriously? Out of all of the nice comments on Naver supporting Kris, you have the pick the racist troll anti Exo ones? I am a Korean male Exo fan and I support Kris!

    ReplyDelete
  133. "They're top class slaves compared to SM in the past."

    WTF is this shit?!?! A top class slave is still a slave. No one knows the truth, and NO ONE deserves to be mistreated~!!! The truth is a lot of kpop trainees probably really DON'T know what they're getting into! Even as a fan, I thought kpop was all sparkles at first until reality sets in later to hit you in the face.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Where? Do you have the link? or post it.. Please

    ReplyDelete
  135. but if we compare him with gyuri...

    ReplyDelete
  136. They are a lot of speculation of why he is leaving but i am not gonna believe none of it until it's officially announced the reason why he is leaving.

    ReplyDelete
  137. 3. [+120, -18] Gotta give it to the lack of work ethic with the Chinese.

    u serious? Victoria, Luhan, Lay, Henry, ZLY, are lazy?

    ReplyDelete
  138. Eh what's with all the venom at Chinese? Only 1 Chinese SM idol has left like this (Hangeng). All the rest (Zhoumi, Victoria, Zhang Liyin, the other Chinese EXO members, etc) have stayed. In fact more Koreans (JYJ) have left in this fashion then Chinese. >:/

    ReplyDelete
  139. Me too. I dont like EXO at first but he made me like EXO. I dont know what to do if he will leave the group for real

    ReplyDelete
  140. I'll not be surprised if he joins a chinese company. Look at their popularity in China, seems like he is going after what Hangeng is enjoying now.

    KRIS stay strong !!

  143. This news really makes me shocked. I BELIEVE IN YOU KRIS!

    ReplyDelete
  144. well so far the recent people who left sm are doing pretty well, he can survive too

    ReplyDelete
  145. it's stupid to stan a company anyways,
    you should stan the artists not the company.

    ReplyDelete
  146. i don't even know what i expected tbh

    ReplyDelete
  147. At first SM denied saying they didn't hear about a lawsuit, but then took it down when news broke he did file it. He did it randomly so they knew nothing about it.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I thought I wouldn't be this affected when I experienced my favorite groups having their members leaving or lawsuit dramas in my stay in KPOP. It happened with DBSK then 2PM and now EXO. I guess its just that difficult not to be sad when you like a group.


    I hope things ends well (hopefully). And as much as I love Kris, I am worried about the other EXO members as well. They are currently promoting Overdose and their first concert is nearing. SM said that they'll try to continue the promotion smoothly but this isn't exactly something the boys can just shrug off. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  149. YES BLAME HIM COS HE'S CHINESE
    NOT TO COMPANY WHO DOES SLAVE CONTRACTS


    SCREW YOU NETIZENS AND SCREW YOU SM
    I AM SO DONE!

    ReplyDelete
  150. lol luhan is treated better than kmembers actually ,so as victoria

    ReplyDelete
  151. Technically, Shinhwa didn't sue to leave SM. They just all didn't renew contracts. They only took SM to court later on to legally have rights to their group name.

    ReplyDelete
  152. worst timing ever . i feel for the other 11 (esp suho , kid trained for fucking 7 years to get screwed over only 2 years down his career)

    well , best of luck to u Kris , since u pulled a move like this , be happy n live life to the fullest

    ReplyDelete
  153. ugh my blood boils

  156. damn kris… that was fast. only like 2 years o__o'


    he should just take off half a year like amber did a few years ago if he needs some time to get back on his feet D: leaving the group like this isn't cool :(

    ReplyDelete
  157. "TOP Class slaves"
    -Ouch-

    Why bash the Chinese members when it's obvious it's SME that's the problem. We saw it with Hangeng, we saw it with JYJ....
    I support Kris in his decision even though I'm not a fan or even know him that well. This is why I never wanted to actually be an EXO fan....I knew it would happen sooner or later

    ReplyDelete
  158. Why blame it on the work ethic of chinese members when you have never worked with them? Really. I know it would be either Kris or Tao who would first leave EXO but i dont expect it to be this fucking soon.

    ....we need you to speak up, Wu Yi Fan.

    ReplyDelete
  159. it was so embarrassing seeing other fandoms making fun of this situation like Kris isn't my bias either but goodness this wouldn't be funny if someone from your bias group decided to leave the group.

    ReplyDelete
  160. I feel so bad for you :( luckily I never experienced it then.. but now.. *sigh* /group hug/ :'(

    ReplyDelete
  161. Him saying that he wanted to act was part of the rumor. And the list that was written by sina. I'd rather wait for his words than assume things.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Maybe, but maybe not. Kris went on a random hiatus 2 years ago and rumors floated around about a member who didn't like the idol lifestyle. I think it was him.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I really don't know what will i do if SHINee were ever to have a member leaving. I think i will be depressed for life.

    ReplyDelete
  164. holy shit. when this was reported by akp, i didn't believe it because i thought it was just one of those absurd, baseless rumors perpetuated by the chinese tabloids.

    it was actually true. oh my god.

  165. And non-Korean fans still want to audition to be a K-Pop star lmao.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Tbh though kris didn't even go through half the crap that Hangeng had to go through the poor kid had to wear a mask on tv. Training hard for years to end up wearing a mask on tv. Yep.

    I'm not saying that kris had it easy either but if Hangeng went through all that and still doesnt get sympathy from k netz kris is in for a whole new world of pain.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I would think it's more family issues, to be honest. Or something else, but I don't think it has to do with contract terms this time.

    ReplyDelete
  168. victoria is chinese n she stay........just saying

    ReplyDelete
  169. Out of all the nice comments, the racist troll ones get picked. The people just want to cause beef because they hate Exo.

    ReplyDelete
  170. the reason of filing a lawsuit probably isn't light because of the timing.

    ReplyDelete
  171. side note: Beautiful Chaelin *.*

    ReplyDelete
  172. i netz blaming SM, k netz blaming Kris......
    yeah, being an idol is tough shit and SM's known for overworking their idols, but shouldn't you fucking read your contract before you sign? imo it takes 2 to tango so please stop blaming either one and just grab popcorn as we wait for 2014 to play out

    ReplyDelete
  173. Basically Kris wasnt cut out to handle the pressure of being an idol, its too bad that he realized that 2 years after debuting in Exo..

    ReplyDelete
  174. what have sm got to do they are paying as much as there were paying the original contract .

    ReplyDelete
  175. The thing I don't understand is why did Kris agreed to sign the contract then later file a law suit? Surely, he had to read it carefully before deciding to become sm's idol.

    I won't blame sm or Kris because I hardly know them but to see a member leaving the group or filing a law suit makes me feel uneasy because it means the group is no longer the same. They worked hard together to achieve what they have today and suddenly one member leave. I would be extremely upset if it happens to the group I follow. But stay strong Exo and fans, I'm sure the group will continue to do well. Believe in them and support them with encouraging words!

    ReplyDelete
  176. That was just from one of the blind items that get posted here on NB. It wasn't an official list of reasons. The actually details remain to be seen.

    ReplyDelete
  177. This is just another way to look at it and a whole world of other possibilities that only Kris and his lawyer and SM are aware of. I just wish people would wait for both parties' story instead of assuming things because a lot are surely going to take those theories and convince themselves that those are the reality.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Really? It took 2NE1 three years to come back with an album. YGE has its own flaws.

  184. did he not seem to fit with the members? i always thought him and tao were close. :(

  185. H.O.T was disbanded
    Shinwha decided to NOT RENEW their contracts with SM and signed with Good Entertainment …
    Hummmmmm wonder why...

  186. exo doesnt really need him tho

    ReplyDelete
  187. Am I crazy or the racism of some of those netizens is just... URGH (= too much)?

    ReplyDelete
  188. And you know this because...?

    ReplyDelete
  189. Yep. Foreign members do have it better than when Hangeng was around, Kris probably didn't want to be an idol anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  190. nope . never . not in million years

    ReplyDelete
  191. the question here is will he really do well? like come on.. his singing, dancing, rapping.... is awkward.. well at least for me. His english sounds awkward as well, considering the fact that he came from canada... I'm very much curious with his reasons though..

    ReplyDelete
  192. That's an awfully simplistic view. If you were in the situation as him, I am sure you wouldn't think in such a way.

    ReplyDelete
  193. what did sm do this time ? you are just blaming sm

    ReplyDelete
  194. These Knetz act like they all know what's going on behind the screen/stage. Leave that kid alone until we all know what's exactly happen! !
