Some people considered the ruling a 'win' for Kris and Luhan, some deemed it as more of a tie and quite a few even thought it to be an 'I-told-you-so' from SM.
But what are Korean netizens' stance regarding this particular matter? Well, it appears that most of them have sided with SM.
Top netizen comments on news portals read, "This is entirely SM's gain hahahahaha," "Even if they get down on their knees to beg for forgiveness to SM, it won't be enough," "Man, I feel all good inside lolololol," "You've officially been punished, you money-hungry idiots. Now you're donating your money to SM lmaooooo," "They're giving their hard-earned money to EXO now lololol," "SM be just sitting there but they making that cash hahahaha," "We won't accept you Chinese boys here even if you promote as EXO. Please don't drink our kimchi juice~~~," "Naver, please remove their names from EXO's profile," "Those jjangkkae (derogatory term Koreans use to call Chinese people) bastards got what's coming to 'em lmao," and more.
