In the midst of the reports that Luhan has filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment to nullify his contract, fellow EXO member Lay has become the first to speak up in response to the news.
On October 10, immediately after the situation hit the media, Lay posted heartfelt words of support on his personal Weibo account. His message read, “Goodbye, hyung/bro*. If we get the chance, let’s share a stage together again. As a brother, I support your every decision. Best wishes.”
*Lay refers to 哥们, which can technically be translated literally to brothers (plural), but is mostly used as a colloquial term for “bro” or “buddy.”
As a fellow member who has been together with Luhan for years, both as a part of EXO-M, as well as the larger EXO, it seems that Lay felt a desire to relay his thoughtful feelings and show support for Luhan’s decision.
