Reports stated the agency's suit against Tao for infringing on his exclusive contract failed. SM Entertainment stated, "The lawsuit in question is one of many ongoing lawsuits in China. As it's due to a translation issue, we plan to appeal immediately. This is unrelated to the lawsuit filed in South Korea. All the lawsuits related to Tao are still ongoing."
