Tao is the Schrodinger’s cat of EXO, as he is neither in the group or out of the group, according to the latest statement from SM Entertainment.
In the statement, SM Entertainment revealed, “It cannot be confirmed whether Tao is staying or leaving. Negotiations are still ongoing.” Further, the agency also stated that Tao will not participate in the repackage album Love Me Right, confirming previous reports that EXO will be returning with only 9 members.
Thanks, I needed that clarification to continue on with my life.
I assume by “negotiations” SME means a drone is tracking Tao’s movements in America, so should he try to escape it’s going to take him out and blame the attack on North Korea.
