I pretty much agree with most people's points about the whole EXO/Kris situation. I'm a big fan of the group, and I realize it's hard when someone who you consider "family" decides they want to leave. I know I don't feel exactly the way they do, and I, nor anyone else will know exactly what they're thinking. It does seem selfish and irresponsible for him to leave in the middle of promotions, but maybe that's what he wants? The group will suffer, but maybe he sees it as a necessary side-effect of getting back at SM? Taking their top group and basically tearing them down will lose a lot of money, and they'll be haunted by it for a long time. It's hard for me to decide who to support: I will support 11-member EXO because they've worked hard, they have a lot of ambition and drive, and I think they're an awesome group. I'll also support Kris because I believe everyone has a right to do what they want and express themselves how they want without being stifled by someone above them. And if terminating his contract is the best solution he sees, then so be it. I'll be sad to see one of my favorite groups split, but Kris is just looking after his best interests, which obviously no longer lie in the group.
Supposedly Kris joined SM to be an actor, yet they stuck him in a group, and turned down multiple acting jobs without his input. It must have hurt seeing two other members get acting roles (D.O in a Korean drama, Luhan in a Chinese movie).
And as for artists following their own label on social media, I feel like that's pretty redundant. Like, "OMG A NEW SUPER JUNIOR ALBUM!?!? lol jk I knew about that a month ago."
