in April, Lay announced that he was parting ways with SM Entertainment after 10 years. He penned a note to EXO-Ls on social media to show his gratitude for their support, and to show love for his fellow members. It was accompanied by the caption, “This decade is one of the greatest gifts I could’ve ever received.” In the letter, he promised he would be there as EXO’s Lay whenever his members call on him.
Despite this declaration, it was recently discovered that Lay was removed from EXO’s profile on SM Entertainment‘s website and some fans are calling on the company to explain why.
[‼️Update]: SM Entertainment has now added Lay back to EXO’s profile page.
The removal of Lay from EXO’s member list was also trending on the Chinese social media platform Weibo as fans question the reason behind the decision and inconsistencies in fan theories.
Some have pointed out that the possible reason for the change was due to Lay leaving the company. While that could be true, other fans pointed out that Seohyun, Tiffany, and Sooyoung are still included in Girls’ Generation‘s profile, despite leaving SM Entertainment in 2017. f(x)‘s Krystal is still listed under SM The Ballad even though she left SM Entertainment in 2020, and the project group itself has been inactive since 2014.
