Lay says he'll always be there for EXO members if they need him

Lay
Lay expressed affection for the members of EXO.

On December 4, Billboard released a video interview with Lay. One question asked him to share about returning to EXO for "Tempo." Lay commented, "I want to say I love my guys, I love my members for sure. I just want to tell them if you guys need me then I will always be there."


Lay also talked about his dream collaboration and more. You can watch the full interview below.

Just coming back to record Tempo was a risky move from him.


Yixing is one of the loyal persons from the industry and he's so pure too.

Aside of the Hallyu (Korean Entertainners) Ban in China, Lay appointed by the Communist Youth League of China (CYLC) of Changsha as a publicity ambassador ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lay_Zhang). He is the first celebrity to hold such title by which he minimizes his activity as EXO.

Honestly (not biased at all) he's one of the most loyal persons I've ever met, at least from what've seen in this industry in all these years.

Dude, it's just me or you also realize that he looks sad and dejected. I do not know him well, but I thought so.

it seems like SM has a Idol Group Curse, every idol group they have seems to lose 1 or more members (with the exception of newer group like RV and NCT).


DBSK, Super Junior, Shinee (err that one is a tragedy), EXO

and as for Girl groups, SNSD, f(X),


Only RV and NCT both under 5 years, have yet to have any "loss of members",


At least SNSD and Shinee made the first contract (first 7 years) with full members. only losing 1 or more after the 7th year.

It doesn't matter if Lay comes back or not. EXO already had 3 songs without him and Lay's absence didn't affect them. Ppl have made peace with the issue of joining back EXO or not. Lay also does not need EXO anymore as he has his own fanbase and is successful in his home country.

Can someone explain to me why fans keep saying Lay isn't participating in EXO promos cos of the Hallyu ban???

When Jackson & SVT china-line have been promoting both in China & korea group activities with no visible problems???

I honestly just think he's no longer in EXO but SM wont announce it (It doesn't mean he has badblood with his members)

Jackson is Hongkonger so i guess the rules are a bit different, even for WJSN, the China members also didnt take part in the recent comeback, even though Cheng Xiao was not involved in the Produce 101 China version, and wasnt in the debut group of Rocket Girls. I guess the "ban" sort of applied to her as well. Tzuyu is from Taiwan, so she is not affected as with NCT's Lucas also from HK, I think there are some chinese members in G.IDLE and other groups like gugudan etc but not sure if they are affected or why they are allowed to continue promoting with their group despite the ban.

but then what of SVT china line, they are also a top group & promote fine. Other non-hongkonger's are promoting in Korea so i still don't understand why Lay is affected by the ban.

p.s: for WJSN, i remember they said Cheng Xiao didnt join this comeback cos it clashed with her China activities...

No, that means he still can't go to Korea to fully promote with them. Until the ban is lifted he just can't.

Really? Does Lay not think that maybe the members would have liked him to actually be with them during promotions and on music shows?

maybe SM won't let him join EXO promotions? the truth is, nobody knows whats going on behind the scenes. china and korea's relationship has not been very good over the THAAD issue. they may be keeping lay in china so he can keep earning money there for SM. or they may be holding him out of EXO promotions because they fear he's going to leave. no one knows the truth. we all know SM is famous for their pettiness (ie. JYJ) so with that being said, maybe you should withold your judgement.

but I think the problem between china and korea kind of got solved and idols don't have a problem appearing in both countries. + I see jackson don't have any problem promoting with got7, I don't get why sm is doing this.

Because Lay is a publicity ambassador in China so he can't just leave to Korea.

Do you really think that any of the EXO boys is angry with him for not being there? They know his situation and they know that's it's not up to any of them. Yeah, they want him there, but I doubt they would force him to be there if they knew it could end up hurting Lay and his career.
