EXO member Lay was in an accident on the set for Chinese web drama “Old Nine Gates,” where he sustained a back injury on 30th January. Although the injury was deemed noncritical, Lay has been taking time off to improve his health condition following doctor’s order.
The situation has led to speculations from Malaysian fans on whether he will be absent from the upcoming concert which set to take place on 12th March in Malaysia.
Today, concert organiser Star Planet issued a press statement to clarify that they have not received any notification about Lay’s absence from the upcoming event, which confirmed that EXO will arrive in Kuala Lumpur as planned, with all 9 members.

As described by the organiser, production is “epic”, with elements such as gigantic high-definition screens, state-of-the-art audio and visual, pyro, hydraulic lifts, mini water pools, and stage extended well into the audience.
The total production moved on more than 30 trucks with about 300 crew.
