At the event, Tao’s association to EXO was not mentioned, but instead, he was introduced as “popular asian idol” Huang Zitao, his full Chinese name. He also posed for photos and met with fans, who he willingly signed autographs for.
So on top of him not bothering to be involved in EXO‘s repackage, he basically skipped out on that to promote a solo endorsement and did so while not associating himself with EXO and not using his group member name.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy.
EXO is basically never-ending entertainment and drama. Bless.
