Former EXO member Tao (now professionally known as Z.Tao) had trouble stopping the tears that came unbidden during a preview for his upcoming film 'Edge of Innocence' where he also revealed his new MV "19." 

During the preview session which took place this past June 12, Tao burst into tears once again after watching a video message from his grandmother. After managing to regain his composure, Tao opened up about all the hate netizens directed toward him, tearfully mentioning that some people even verbally harangued his family members.

The singer/actor relayed sorrowfully, "Life is short. It passes quickly. I don't know how society changed like this. I never thought myself a star. This is just my work; celebrities are people, too. Do people really have the time to attack me and my family online? They could be using that time to better themselves. I never killed anyone or broke the law. I'm just living my life." 

You can watch Tao talk more about the hate comments in the clip above.

poor Tao 😢 why do some people are happy to bring someone down? 😳 I hope he'll get stronger as days go by. Just continue reaching for your dreams and gain strength from the people who love you!

The people in this comment section trying to justify the hate of anyone are truly sad individuals. Oh he left sm!, he left exo!  he lied to his fans!,  Heffa get over yourselves get a hobby. I swear some people can't handle being a fan of anything. Let that man live his life if you don't like him don't support him. Simple, right.I know.

Say it louder I don't think the people in the back heard you! wOW god bless your comment ily

dahkiwoo22 Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Leave his family alone. Just hate him only him, hate him forever for hurting all the fans, breaking his promise for leaving n hurting all EXO members. That can never ever be forgotten or forgiven at all.

xbluerain dahkiwoo22 Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Then don't support him, but hate is never a good thing to do.

dahkiwoo22 xbluerain Tuesday, June 14, 2016

I have never support him. He's annoying always crying like a baby

Juli_Oh dahkiwoo22 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Lmao crying like a baby? People are never satisfied huh. Lol cut the crap and stop being bitter about him leaving EXO. He left because he was treated unfairly. Didn't you see how he continued to get injured over and over? He always seemed to be in a chair during their concerts. He was never able to perform to his full ability. He loved the other members of EXO. For a long time, he didn't want to leave them, but he kind of had to if he didn't want to suffer permanent injuries. I've seen you hate on a few Tao articles. Grow the hell up and stop hating, or at least ignore his articles. You call him annoying, but honestly, your constant hating on him is annoying. Plus, it's not like he's the only member to leave, so cut it about him "forever hurting all the fans".

ooh. ya sure

Juli_Oh dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

Sorry, just wanted to stick up for him a little because it seems like no one else will. If he talks about SM, he'll get hate. If he doesn't, he'll get hate. No matter what he does, he'll get hated on for it. Unless he's killed someone or kicks puppies, I really don't see a reason for people to hate him.

dahkiwoo22 Juli_Oh Thursday, June 16, 2016

There's no need for saying sorry. My comment wasn't that nice anyways. Just that I can't stand him anymore after what he did. What he said n what he had did is totally different. He said that he won't leave n ask fans to trust him but he betrayed in the end.

dahkiwoo22 Juli_Oh Thursday, June 16, 2016

And please, i didn't go around n hate on all his article. As far i know i had commented on 3 articles and 2 of them is the same 'asking why AKP is writing news about him.

Juli_Oh dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

I see. I was a little quick to judge, but I really do feel bad for the guy. He can never get a break and online netizens can be brutal. Well, I mean, he didn't really want to leave, but it was getting to a point where it was affecting his health. Honestly, at the time, I really didn't mind because the guy was always injured. I went to the Exo'luxion concert in New York back in February, and I know for sure that I wouldn't have wanted to see him in a chair on that stage because he wasn't able to perform.

xbluerain dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

I don't think you understood me. I guess I should reword, don't support and don't bother reading about him either. Don't bother with him in general. As for not hating... honestly calling him a crybaby. I get it's your opinion but... it's pretty impersonal.

dahkiwoo22 Juli_Oh Thursday, June 16, 2016

Honestly I actually totally believe him when he said he won't leave n i feel pity him when he was sick and all. I didn't expect him to leave. I don't hate him just that I'm very disappointed to the part I can't stand him. But I don't hate him. And i did comment there to just hate him but not his family. Too bad it's the consequences of his actions. It will be gone but till then he has to face it all. He did hurt his fans

dahkiwoo22 xbluerain Thursday, June 16, 2016

But he does always cries most of the times. It's not that I'm making it up.

Juli_Oh dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

Well his family is definitely important to him, and his dad was the primary cause of his departure from EXO. I get why you can't stand him now, and luckily you don't hate his guts, you're just disappointed. I get it. I just hope that one day when things are less rocky for him, all this hate can deteriorate.

xbluerain dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

I'm not saying you're making it up. But it's still a bit impersonal. As for the other part about believing him when he said he wouldn't leave. Maybe in that moment he really actually meant it. Maybe he was saying that so that people didn't speculate (because he hasn't yet decided). Who knows...? But it doesn't mean he should be hated. I mean... I can't blame him for leaving. I don't necessarily think he handled the act of leaving very well... but I don't think people should hate him or his family.

dahkiwoo22 Juli_Oh Thursday, June 16, 2016

Finally! Thank god. Someone actually gets it! Thanks

xbluerain dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

I agree with Juli_Oh. We get that you can't stand him. It's understandable. But hate is a very strong word. When I see it I think "hate his guts" like Juli_Oh meant. Which it comes off that way a lot by other people.

dahkiwoo22 xbluerain Thursday, June 16, 2016

I know what u mean. But it's not that easy to just let it go, l mean if it was that easy. He won't have anti fans n I don't hate him. I feel like I'm more disappointed in him. Maybe calling him a cry baby was my bad. Well, I'm sorry then.

Juli_Oh xbluerain Thursday, June 16, 2016

Yeah. He really does get a lot of hate from people who actually despise the poor guy, but like, why? Why hate him to such an extent? I get being disappointed, but hating him this much? People really need to get a hobby and stop ferociously hating on him to the point where he cries because his family is a part of it, too. It makes me sad that because he's sensitive, he gets hate for when he cries. Is it his fault? People continue to hate on him, and they don't expect him to cry from the never-ending bit of it all? :/

xbluerain dahkiwoo22 Thursday, June 16, 2016

Being disappointed is understandable. I'm not sure I was trying to say "just let it go." But I might've came off that way, and that was impersonal. I guess to me, sometimes the 'hate' can be really strong against idols. It's really tragic to see and I can't stand it myself. I'm not saying you're doing this or anything. But I've just seen it a lot.

dahkiwoo22 xbluerain Thursday, June 16, 2016

If i hate him, I won't be comment here! I'll be dead by his fan! Haha. Just that i know why they still "hate" on him because of the pain. But the family part is also too much for me

xbluerain Juli_Oh Thursday, June 16, 2016

Right, that's the part that really gets to me.

dahkiwoo22 xbluerain Thursday, June 16, 2016

Being an idol is tough in korea. But I have never seen it n I don't think i want to see all that hate. It would be more worse then a bad nightmare

The people who insulted and attacked his family are sincerely trash.

ExoLuhana Tuesday, June 14, 2016

I don't support Tao but this is really sad. *second heartbreak*

onedelacruise Tuesday, June 14, 2016

I am all for hating that guy. Some celebrities do deserve some hate.. A lot of hate.. But not their family.. Unless they're celebrities too

xbluerain onedelacruise Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Nobody in the world deserves hate.

onedelacruise xbluerain Wednesday, June 15, 2016


andreape995 onedelacruise Wednesday, June 15, 2016

u can't be serious , right ? that's so stupid ! he is just someone who had problems and u are comparing the hate of stupid people to hitler's

onedelacruise andreape995 Thursday, June 16, 2016

Oh no. I'm not comparing him to Hitler.. I am just giving an example of a guy that deserves hate

xbluerain onedelacruise Thursday, June 16, 2016

I don't know what Hitler deserves. But I hardly see leaving a group after realizing you don't want to be there as means for hate.

onedelacruise xbluerain Friday, June 17, 2016

Do not assume that that is the reason for the hate. The problem with the internet is people think they know everything and what they know is what is right. Also all are keyboard warriors.

xbluerain onedelacruise Friday, June 17, 2016

Well, not everybody hates him for that reason, but I've seen many suggest that is why. Also because he's a "crybaby." I mean, if my family is being hated on, I'd cry too.

sakuralee2211 Tuesday, June 14, 2016

I hate Tao but how dare them to harassed his family?? immature people.. get a life
