The media report of EXO member D.O’s contract termination with SM Entertainment turned out to be false.
On March 13, SM Entertainment announced that the rumor about D.O’s contract termination was rootless. “D.O’s contract with us doesn’t end until later,” said the agency official.
Earlier this day, a media outlet reported that D.O and SM Entertainment agreed not to renew the contract. The rumor spread online fast.
However, it turned out that EXO still has a long period of time left for the exclusive contract with SM Entertainment. Moreover, the military services of the members, which will be starting sometime this year, extend the terms automatically.
The false report confused the artist and his fans alike, especially because D.O has been actively participating in the group promotion as well as the individual activities as an actor.
