According to the Seoul Central District Court on November 25, it was decided back on October 10 that Luhan's lawsuit to confirm the lack of validity of his exclusive contract will be brought to a court-referred mediation. This means that the two parties will have to compromise in order to amicably resolve the situation by reaching a settlement. In the case they fail to do so, this case will once again be taken to court.
Meanwhile, Luhan had said through the lawsuit, "SM treated EXO-K, filled with Korean members, differently from how they treated the EXO-M members with Chinese members. From the beginning of our debut, EXO-K received support from SM and actively did promotions, but EXO-M had no promotions, received no financial backing, and endured a difficult time."
SM had responded, "To sue us when he has no reason to do so using the same law firm and the same method and to ignore the interest of the people concerned in the contract that includes the group's promotions and the agency after gaining a lot of popularity as a star through group promotions show that he put his personal gains first."
