It has been reported that Tao set up his very own one-man agency, ‘Huang Z.TAO Studio,’ in China on June 11. He plans to continue activities as a solo artist, which ultimately acts as confirmation of his withdrawal from EXO.
On June 12, a representative of SM Entertainment shared, “We have heard the news of Tao’s personal workshop. We are currently in discussion for an ongoing progressive direction.”
We STILL don’t have a goddamn official statement one way or another, but the fact that Tao opened his own workshop and SME was like “Well shit, we just heard about it ourselves.” is probably a sign that Tao doesn’t give a shit how SME feels about anything he’s doing.
Um … #OT9?
