https://www.allkpop.com/article/201...m-were-kris-tao-and-luhan-actually-mistreated As you can see, back in the days when Kris, Tao and Luhan left the group, some of them made statements in court which include lack of proper promotion and et cetera. Recently SM has been mistreating EXO too. The group gets little to absolutely no promotion, no exposure and overall SM treats them like they don't exist anymore although they're one of their biggest moneymakers of all times.(+ they still have a very large and dedicated fanbase) Since the petition against SM's mistreatment is getting more and more attention, i've seen a lot of people in multifandom/EXO groupchats look back on the previous events - Kris, Tao and Luhan's departures and many of them have been debating whether their allegations against SM were true or not, given the fact that SM publicly refuses to pay attention to the group right now although they know they'll recieve backlash. I don't want to repost the article's content but there is proof that Kris suffered from myocarditis (a heart disease) since Sina (the most popular Chinese media which is even more relevant in there than Dispatch in Korea is right now) posted his medical records illegally, suggesting that his case is very severe, yet SM didn't do anything about it. Everyone in China knew back then but Korean medias refused to announce it. Tao on the other hand was walking around in a wheelchair in multiple occasions. In the article there are photos of him getting out of a pharmacy with medicines using crutches. Luhan on the other hand admitted in court that only the EXO-M members weren't getting financial backing and were barely getting promotions as opposed to the EXO-K members. Of course, back in the day many of us refused to believe that the situation in SM was that bad and it all caused a huge stir amongst the fandom because most EXO-Ls felt "betrayed" by the former members, but if it was only a single member complaining - alright, his statements would be questionable, especially if not backed up with any proof. But three different people? Also let's not forget that EXO was rising to the top drastically fast back in the day so they were all guaranteed even more stardom and money. If their problems weren't that bad they wouldn't have had left. And now given the fact that SM treats all of the other members like trash unapologetically leads me to believe that everything they previously stated is true. What do you think?
