Tao responded to questions about his former label SM Entertainment during the preview for his upcoming film 'Edge of Innocence'. 

Tao first talked about his debut, and said, "I wasn't ready to debut at the age of 19. It was an age when everything was incomplete." Then to questions regarding SM Entertainment, Tao coolly answered, "I have no interest."

He also added, "I don't want to take a break. I want to work simultaneously with both music and acting."

Everytime I see an article about him, it's never a bit good. Lord he pisses me off so much! Seriously AKP, just stop writing abot, stop mentioning him, nobody wants to know about this ungrateful kid.

For those people that be like "omg tao what a ungrateful bastard! SM is the one that made u famous!" Yes, I agree that without SM, Tao would be like no one today. But the thing is that Tao is the one to agree to train his ass off everyday, no one know what he experienced during the trainee days (Since SM always have a bad reputation on treating their artists). Its not like SM is the one that's hella nice and to ask Tao to work with them to become famous for free. No, Tao is the one that is dedicated enough to go to a different country and work ass off dancing and learning Korean. So yes he should appreciate SM for everything but he should be thanking to himself to work hard enough to become what he is today.

Oh well. I've never seen SNSD or BOA complain on Tao's level!! Even Jessica, who really would have any reason to hate SM is very supportive and grateful towards SME. Tao' still has many lessons to learn.

LavidaLoca mariemay Tuesday, June 14, 2016

I really don't get what his problem was and is in the first place. He appears highly sensitive and immature to me, like someone who only gets his hands dirty with work when there is a ton of money and luxury to compensate for it.  I mean he wasn't ready to work and live as a celebrity back then, I get it, but NOW, only a few little years later, he is to the point that he does not want to take a break? HOW is that different to before he left SM??  I mean being a celebrity as itself has not changed. There are still the same negative aspects about it. Honestly, this dude suffers from the Prince-Syndrome. I read an article the other day about him being a Chaebol-son...that explains a lot. Let me translate his statement for you guys to a language we all understand: I was 19, I was a dumbass and naive, I only knew Korea as one of the wealthiest places in Asia, this is why I made up my mind to chase after a dream other trainees would die for. Nevertheless, after I debuted I soon realized that I hardly earned any money and I had to actually work for my future. That was too much reality for me, thus, I decided to go back to my dad's wealth and let him pull some strings to cut me out of the contract with SM, who helped me to get a badass reputation that is still the reason why I am a hot item. Sorry, but with THIS he totally lost my interest in him.

Agreed on all counts. I understand being young and feeling over one's head, but the proper way to handle that is to admit that he overreached. Not to act like he's hot shit. It comes off as very entitled and just leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

Just because they're idols doesn't mean you can treat them like shit guys. Just because you didn't like a certain member based on their personality doesn't mean you can treat them like shit. They're people to. I get that a lot of EXO-Ls are mad at him but do you guys really have to go onto EVERY SINGLE article that mentions Tao and talk crap? I get it, I was mad when he left and then released an album to, but I got over it and I hope he does well, do I listen to his music? No, it's just not my style but I'm sure there are a lot of people who do enjoy his new music and also wish him well. People keep talking crap saying that if he didn't want to debut at age 19 then he should have said something, you guys do release he was probably scared that if he didn't debut at that time then he might not have debuted for a while. For everyone saying "Can people stop writing articles about him?" Shut your rude immature mouths. Articles about Tao aren't even written that often, EXO gets articles out the ass but I've never once heard a fan of another group complaining about all the articles EXO gets. Again, I get that people were mad when he left, I was to. But can't you let the kid be for once with out criticizing everything about him down to the way he breaths? He may be an idol, but idols are human too guys.

I don't know much about Kris, and I flagrantly admit I am Luhan biased, but Tao always struck me as massively immature. Frankly, I found him fucking insufferable. Always crying, always complaining, always grumpy about something. Clearly he wasn't ready for that life, and he or his parents or his managers ought to have known that. And on a personal level, I'm kind of glad his annoying ass is off doing something he wants to do - he's happy, and I'm happy because I don't have to listen to him whining at everyone.

Isn't it ironic? If one cannot take the stress of being in a large group where money has to be divided among many and the demands of being a foreign member, why be a trainee?This is not the first time it happened and it is widely known that SM offers slave contracts. Take the Hangeng case, that sparked the awareness on slave contracts. So what is my take is that it is a known fact that you're gonna suffer in hell if you're gonna train under SM. So the reason for being unfairly treated etc. this reason isn't good enough to nullify contracts. Side notes, SM won't take this easy. They know exactly what to prepare and expect, with their huge revenues, top lawyers have their back so sit back and wait for this whole lawsuit to be over.

Meanwhile he's out there doing what he wants to do, he's now a second lead in Jackie Chan's next film

If he does talk about it, people hate by saying he's an attention seeker. If he doesn't speak about it, people hate by saying he's selfish.

Dammed if he does, dammed if he doesn't.
