Former EXO member Luhan has issued a public apology to variety show producers through his Chinese management company.
Luhan’s management company said on its official Weibo on March 31 that Luhan cannot participate in variety programs due to his fear of heights. His associates said, “We are aware that you are making official suggestions through the news and Weibo. However, Luhan can’t presently participate in programs that require long travel. We extend our apologies.”
They explained that they are refusing programs because of Luhan’s fear of heights. They said, “We believe that fans who know Luhan well know of his problem. Acrophobia is a condition that affects many people, including Luhan.”
In particular, they emphasized, “He feels a lot of emotional distress because of his many flights in the past,” mentioning his activities with EXO. “Because of this, Luhan has given up many relatively important opportunities. Still, we would like to thank those who have made the recommendations.”
Lastly, they said, “We have not found ways to manage his acrophobia medically as of now, but Luhan is actively trying a number of things. We hope that he will be able to realize his dream of traveling the world soon.”
Meanwhile, Luhan has left his previous management company, SM Entertainment, and his band, EXO, and is currently active in China. He has been cast and is currently filming the movie, “The Great Wall.”
