Previously on October 11, Lay worried many fans as he lost consciousness at the airport. He then returned to schedule only a day after the incident, causing many fans to point fingers at SM for his poor health condition.
At an event for Chinese drama, 'The Mystic Nine', on October 19, Lay was asked about the recent incident and his health. The MC worried about Lay, asked, "Are you not getting enough rest nowadays?"
In response, Lay explained, "Fainting is my fault. Please do not blame my label. I want to emphasize once again that I am the one who decides the arrangements of my schedule. I'm also the type who doesn't like accepting failures, so I tend to only do the things that I am capable of doing. My label also respects my opinions."
