The statement reads,
"The agency learned of Luhan's lawsuit through a lawyer.
We are shocked because the lawsuit was suddenly filed while we were in the process of negotiating his future schedules and activities after he expressed his wishes to focus more on his individual activities in China more so than EXO group activities as well as matters concerning his health.
As it was with Kris's case, when a lawsuit is filed for no actual reason by using the same pattern and lawyers after a gaining a lot of popularity as a star through group activities, we see this as a suit that was filed because of one prioritizing one's self and ignoring the understanding of the contract with the agency as well as everyone involved in the contract and the activities with the group. We believe there is someone behind the scenes who is pulling the strings.
Regarding these kinds of situations, the agency plans to actively respond to them with our partners overseas including those in China as well as legal experts.
EXO's future activities will also proceed on as scheduled.
So as the press release states, SM seems to believe that because the same lawsuit keeps happening in the same exact pattern using the same lawyers, there may be a third party involved who is using their power or influence over the members to persuade them to leave.
What do you make of their statement and the whole situation?
