SM dismisses Tao's withdrawal from EXO

Chinese media report that EXO's Tao has expressed his plan to terminate his contract with SM Entertainment. The news in Chinese local sites peaked and trended causing a stir which requires SM to address the news and confirm if it's true.

In response, SM Entertainment states, "According to Chinese media, Tao has plans to terminate his contract but that's not true. The rumor is baseless."

However, even before these Chinese reports, there were already rumors in Korea that Tao has signed with a Chinese agency but later on denied by SM as well. Meanwhile, we hope that these baseless rumors won't put everyone in an awkward situation.
