On 11th October, EXO’s Lay (張藝興) fainted right before boarding the plane, probably due to fatigue, when the idol group was about to leave to Hokkaido, Japan from Incheon International Airport.
Although many fans put the blame on SM Entertainment for the singer’s packed schedule and poor health condition, Lay himself stepped up to address the issue, asking fans to stop blaming the label.
“The fainting was my fault. Please don’t curse the people who work with me in the same company. The arrangement of the schedule was mostly my choice. I’m the type who doesn’t like to admit defeat so I try to do everything I can. The agency respects my thoughts,” he said at the press conference for his Chinese drama, “The Mystic Nine”.
Apparently, this is not the first Lay lost consciousness in public. Previously, the Chinese idol fainted on the set of a Chinese variety show, “Extreme Challenge”, and was put on an IV drip.
Lay debuted through EXO on 8th April 2012 and is currently the only Chinese member in the group. Known for his impressive dance skills, the talented artiste just released his first Chinese digital album, titled “what U need”, on his birthday.
