The drama between South Korean entertainment mogul, SM Entertainment, Kris Wu, and Luhan has finally come to an end after 2 years.
On 21st July, SM announced that the court has settled the case with recommendation for reconciliation.
“We cannot reveal specific details about our settlement, but by the court’s decision and the settlement between the involved parties, SM Entertainment will continue its contract with Luhan and Kris until 2022 (as per their original contract),” said the label’s legal representatives.
The company added, “Kris and Luhan, excluding areas in Korea and Japan, will entrust jurisdiction rights entirely to SM Entertainment, and they will share a part of their revenues with SM Entertainment. Needless to say, Kris and Luhan will not promote as members of EXO.”
In 2014, the 2 EXO Chinese members chose to leave SM Entertainment by attempting to void their contracts. Luhan first took a break from promoting with the group but later filed a lawsuit citing an invalid contract while Kris’ issue was due to an apparent disagreement between himself and the agency.
Meanwhile, it was reported that Kris was casted in the upcoming “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” film aka “xXx3” and has signed with Jackie Chan’s label whereas Luhan was recently embroiled in a controversy where he was recorded shouting at a taxi driver ferrying sasaeng fans.
