Backtracking a bit, SM Entertainment will be holding an in-person family concert SMTOWN LIVE, for the first time in five years. Scheduled for August 20 at Seoul’s Suwon World Cup Stadium, the concert will mark the physical return of SM Entertainment’s trademark SMTOWN LIVE concerts.

Fans also pointed out that this isn’t the first time SM Entertainment allegedly mistreated Sehun. With a lack of acting promotions and no solo album, the EXO members’ fans are upset with the situation.
Meanwhile, on the group front, EXO celebrated their tenth anniversary on April 8 this year. The boy group are currently focusing on their solo careers with Kai and Chen headlining the Hallyu Pop Fest in London and Xiumin set to release his first solo album at the end of the year.
