As you may have heard like 10 weeks ago (been about that long, right?), Tao fucking finalllllyyy filed lawsuit against SM Entertainment, putting an end to the madness.
Now normally, I’d decry this as it puts an end to the shenanigans, but the fact that he’s using the same lawyer as Kris and Luhan takes the cake because it makes this all look even MORE like a gigantic Sino conspiracy for netizens to rant about.
SME? They basically said they’re gonna go hard in the paint in regards to actions against Tao.
SM stated, “Our company plans to use everything in our power including both Korean and Chinese legal professionals and partners to respond legally both in Korea and China in a multi-faceted manner. We also plan to take legal steps to respond to Tao’s illegal promotions and actions.”
Which generally amounts to “we’re gonna make a ton of noise, then either settle or get a technical win that does nothing and then pretend this never happened”.
Tao is still the best option we have for an idol to go all scorched Earth ex on SME and have him dish in a tell-all, so forever supporting him.
Yes, yes, this is old news, but it’s about as much experimenting whether things are workable enough to post stuff (while still being slow) as it is about this news being relevant still.
Not back to full capacity yet, but maybe getting there? I hope. Let’s see.
