Pann: Lay is pretty much out of EXO
"Lay's the only photo fan missing from limited EXO fan gifts"
1. [+273, -48] That's fine, Lay leaving makes the average visual of EXO go up
2. [+266, -52] Let's love, 8XO
3. [+252, -17] Lay is the least popular member of EXO, if he leaves now, he's going to end up like Tao instead of Luhan or Kris. SM seems to be using Lay has a platform into the Chinese market. Lay's pretty much out of the group but SM's keeping him around because it's a win win relationship for them. Lay's personal workshop probably told SM to stop selling Lay's image in their Spao ads and products and SM just didn't even bother producing fans with Lay's image on them because of the complications with the income distribution. The situation is no longer with Lay looking like he's about to leave, he's actually already just left. It seems both him and SM have worked out a way to avoid a lawsuit.
4. [+120, -6] Seeing as how the members don't even mention him at award ceremonies anymore seems like they've accepted it too. Even if they do mention Lay, what're they going to say about him? ㅋㅋㅋ "Lay is not promoting with us as a group because he's doing individual activities in China~ please support him~ we love you, thank you" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's awkward even seeing Lay a part of group pictures anymore, and all of this is his fault, don't blame the 8XO supporters. He should've worked harder with the group if he cared at all, I don't even remember the last time he promoted with the group anyway. I used to think EXO was 9 but I'm done with him lately. I'll only support the members who promote with the group.
5. [+111, -7] It's easy for him because he only has to memorize his version of the songs and choreographies but why should the members have to memorize both an 8 member version and a 9 member version????
6. [+100, -6] As a non-fan, I feel like EXO could've just debuted as 8 to begin with... they still would've been top tier. So sad that the members have to get hurt like this instead... it's still amazing that EXO just gets stronger no matter how many members leave ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
7. [+77, -3] It's true, it's awkward seeing a group picture with Lay in it now ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ How did this happen... I trusted Lay when he called himself EXO during 'Love Me Right' promos but he's been missing from the Chinese concerts and even the NA tour. Kyungsoo was filming a movie during 'Sing For You' promos but still never missed a music show performance so what excuse does Lay have??? He should've missed the recordings for the song too if he wasn't going to promote it.
8. [+60, -3] I get so scared every time I buy an EXO album in case my photocard is Lay ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
9. [+51, -2] Apparently the Chinese fans think Lay is being ostracized but what the f*ck, how can he even be ostracized if he doesn't even attend any schedules with them
10. [+48, -8] It really is amazing how EXO's popularity doesn't waiver no matter how many members leave ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I wonder how much better off EXO will be once Lay leaves
11. [+43, -2] As a non-fan, I doubt the public even knows that a member's missing when they watch year-end ceremonies and such. EXO's a top tier male idol group and attend every big event so I figured Lay would at least attend one of them but he didn't attend any of them. Is he even in the NA tour with them?
- Not at any of the NA concerts either
