As talk of Tao leaving EXO continues to swell after Tao′s father′s recent SNS post, SM Entertainment released an official statement, saying, "We will seek to find a developmental direction through conversation."

On April 23, SM Entertainment stated through a press release, "In the process of continuous conversations with Tao and his father about various activities in China, the company finds it unfortuate that those kinds of words were posted.

On April 22, Tao′s father personally posted a statement on his Weibo. An excerpt of the post read, "In a period of three years, Tao has received large and small injuries. Lower back injuries, physical injuries, leg injuries - there are too many to count. Every time Tao rose to the stage, I was worried that his past injuries would become more severe. After Tao got injured, I could do nothing but bring him back to China for treatment."

"There′s nothing more important to a parent than the health of his child. The first priority in our family right now is the health of our son Tao and peace."

In February, Tao was injured on MBC′s Idol Athletics Championship. At the press conference for EXO′s second album release, Tao stated, "It gotten a lot better. I′m sad that I won′t be able to rise to the stage."
