Ex-SM Chinese trainees speak out about Kris' situation

Former SM Entertainment Chinese trainee, Liu Chao, wrote on his Weibo:

Even though I don’t know the exactly reason you’re choosing to leave too, but I believe you have bitter words you can't utter and I understand how you feel, persisted for so long, you've worked hard! Our futures are filled with the unknown, but it is also filled with more choices, I believe things will be better~ I also hope that overseas entertainment companies will be more protective of trainees like us who left our homes and families behind, kids who shed sweat and gave you our youth… Jiayou Yifan! We are all here.

Another former SM Entertainment Chinese trainee, Song Bingyang, reposted Liu Chao's Weibo with his own comment:

K, jiayou! Everyone has seen the hardwork you’ve put in all this while! We support you! I believe the future will be better!

Song Bingyang left SM Entertainment back in 2011. He now studies at Berklee College of Music, and has family in Vancouver. He's most well-known for his duet with Zhang Liyin on her first album. The two of them are childhood BFFs; Bingyang followed Liyin into training at SM Entertainment. While Liu Chao is another of Zhang Liyin's close friends in the company, he left the company last year and has since (re)debuted as a Chinese actor.

And although Zhang Liyin herself hasn't said anything, she has gotten a lot of negative comments from EXO fans on her most recent Weibo, which has photos of her and Zhou Mi drinking tea together today. One of her BFFs commented on Weibo afterwards that Liyin spoke to her about EXO's situation, "'I know they (EXO fans) are really upset at the moment, I understand,'" but Liyin herself has been going through some personal things (e.g. getting sick, and her dad is/was also sick), so the BFF requests EXO fans to stop hurting her.

Thank you for the post, op! It's nice to see others speaking out.

Poor Liyin btw. I hope her father and her get better. Those people should stop bothering her.

Immature idiots need to leave Liyin alone.
Kris better start garnering that celebrity support.

Woa this is new. And touching. All the luck in the world Kris.

ZLY should have filed a lawsuit to get out of her contract but SM probably didn't even work her hard in the first place.

To be honest they have all worked incredibly hard, and I don't believe for a second that if it really wasn't necessary he wouldn't have done it or that he did it with the intention of hurting anyone.

And song bing yang.. Such talent :(


I just wished my bias didn't lash out but it's understandable.. They have all suffered tbh

Why are EXOtics attacking Liyin?
rikayla 15th-May-2014 08:05 pm (UTC)
idk exactly. i purposely chose to not read the comments or the screenshots after i saw the first one: "kris is leaving, you're drinking tea, if it wasn't for SMTB and chen's collaboration with you, you would be a nobody"

but chinese chocolates created a counter hashtag: #张力尹我们陪你喝下午茶# which is "Zhang Liyin, we will drink afternoon tea with you" LOL <3 bless

That's nice!
It's great to see that others are supporting Kris openly!

And to EXO-fans: STOP making me feel fucking embarrassed to be in this fandom all the time!

I wish Liyin and her father a lot of strength and all the best!!!
