Alleged reasons behind Luhan”s suit against SM Entertainment have made headlines.
According to Yonhap News, a representative of Luhan told the news source in an interview, “Luhan was more present in advertisements and other activities than the other [EXO] members, but this sort of detailed situation wasn”t taken into account, and the pay was distributed evenly among the members. This structure cannot be called fair.”
However, Chinese media site Sina has reported another angle. Rather than a monetary issue, a reported friend of Luhan has stated that the EXO member simply missed home. The alleged friend told Sina in an interview, “To be honest, this decision was a sudden one. Luhan”s health declined, and he returned to Beijing recently. He spent time with family and really enjoyed it.”
He continued, “As he”s been overseas for a long time, he had no time to spend with his parents. His agency strictly regulated his vacations home. Even when he had no work, he wasn”t allowed to return home, and he was made to stay in Seoul. After coming home this time, I think he felt that he saw his aging family members and wanted to be close to them.”
Luhan has already let fans know about his whereabouts, but the exact reason behind his suit against SME has yet to be revealed. There”s bound to be a variety of speculations about the matter, but what”s your take on it? ...
