EXO Scandal Causes SM Critics To Urge Kris To Join YG Entertainment: EXOtics Receive First Update From Rapper On Instagram Since Lawsuit
(Photo : Twitter) Since the lawsuit scandal between Kris and SM Entertainment, a growing number of voices online are suggesting that the rapper leave EXO and join YG Entertainment.
K-pop fans know that YG and SM are rival companies, and their general image and work philosophy also differ, at least to the public eye. As evidenced by the string of lawsuits from EXO, TVXQ, and Super Junior, SM has a reputation for holding very strict contracts with long durations. Observers have coined the term "slave contract," which is often used to describe the cause of conflicts between SM and its artists.
Since the lawsuit, some observers believe it would be better if Kris (or even EXO as a whole) moves to YG. The Twitter hashtag #SMentWorstCompanyInKorea has been trending on the social media website. In addition, many K-pop fans are sending YG Entertainment messages, pleading the company "adopt" EXO.

Of course, the chance of this happening is highly unlikely, but the rivalry between YG and SM is certainly being highlighted during this scandal.
Meanwhile, Kris has finally surfaced, at least on Instagram, assuring EXO fans that he"s alright.
"I"m doing fine," says the Chinese note according to allkpop. "I wish everyone the best, and I hope things will be better for you all. I thank all the people who are supporting me, and thanks for voicing your opinions. Wu Yi Fan will always be here!"
Can you imagine Kris being a part of YG Entertainment?
