Will EXO Ray leave the group or stay?

With EXO celebrating its 10th anniversary today (8th), Ray announced the end of his exclusive contract with SM Entertainment by expressing his feelings on SNS. However, he is also said to be "always with the members," raising interest in whether he will stay in the group.

Ray said on the day, "Thank you for your growth over the past 10 years. Thank you EXO members for always being with us I'd like to thank the SM staff for watching us grow I sincerely thank the fans (EXO-L) for their generous love and support."

He said, "I think it's time to break up with SM as an employee. I think it's time for a fresh start at the age of 30." But he said, "I'll always be with the members." I'll always be with you as LAY. Zhang Xing is like a family living in China. Everyone, I love you forever. Let's love EXO," he said, expressing his affection for the group.

Ray is the only Chinese member left in EXO. He did not specify whether he would withdraw from the group or continue his relationship as a member. Ray has focused on individual activities in China and has been selectively engaged in group activities.

Regarding Ray's move, an SM Entertainment official told Dong-A dotcom, "The existing exclusive contract has expired, and we are discussing a new type of contract." Through this, it is expected to discuss in detail whether to remain in the group and individual activity plans.

Meanwhile, EXO debuted on April 8, 2012, including their debut song "MAMA", "Wolf", "Growl", "Overdose", "CALL ME BABY", "LOVE ME RIGHT", "Monster", "Lotto", "Ko Ko Boop", "Power Potion", and so on.
EXO re-opened its first million-selling album with its first full-length album "XOXO (Kiss & Hug)" released in 2013. Following this, the second full-length album "EXODUS," the third full-length album "EX'ACT," the fourth full-length album "THE WAR," and the fifth full-length album "DON'T MESS UP MY TEMPO" surpassed 1 million albums in a row, becoming a "Queen Tuple Million Seller." The special album "DON'T FIGHT THE FEELING," released last year, also became the sixth million seller in his career, with more than 1.08 million copies sold within a week of its release. EXO is the first singer to debut since 2000 to set a milestone of achieving 10 million copies in Korea.
