Former EXO member Luhan may have already left the group but his lawsuit against SM Entertainment has not been resolved yet.
Earlier on 10th Oct, Chinese media portal Sina reported that EXO-M’s Luhan has filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment for an invalid contract. Soon after Luhan filed the lawsuit, he moved on from his past career to venture into the acting industry by taking on a role in the Chinese remake of the Korean film “Miss Granny”.
While Luhan worked hard towards his solo career, both Luhan and SM Entertainment have not been able to resolve the issue and have reached a settlement to confirm the lack of validity in Luhan’s lawsuit. Luhan stated through his lawsuit that SM has given an unfair treatment to the EXO-M members since the beginning of their debut. He also stated that “EXO-M had no promotions, received no financial backing, and endured a difficult time.”
However, SM responded by saying that Luhan is using EXO’s popularity for his personal gains after gaining a lot of popularity as a star through group promotions show. Thus, on 25th Nov, it was decided that the case will be brought to a court-referred mediation.
According to the Seoul Central District Court, the mediation allows both parties to comprise before the beginning of the trials. If the mediation is not successful or one of the parties does not show up, the case will proceed to the court rooms as originally planned.
More to come as the story unfolds.
