Luhan leaving EXO has many fans wondering why he wanted to leave his life as an top K-pop idol behind.
After suffering from being overworked and exhaustion, Luhan’s family was by his side watching him recover.
Luhan said that it was a good feeling being near his family.
Because of SM Entertainment’s strict rules, Luhan wasn’t able to visit his family often, even if his schedule was free.
Luhan’s friend said that Luhan’s decision to terminate his contract with SM Entertainment was a hasty and spontaneous decision. He was sick and in Beijing and with family. He had a realization that his family members are old now and that he felt that they really needed him as much as he needed them.
This was an important reason as to why he terminated his contract.
He knows the repercussions of terminating his contract early with SM Entertainment, and that this situation will be a long, drawn-out process. He says that he can deal with it if it means that he gets to come home.
Other reasons for Luhan’s contract termination is said to be due to SM’s disregard for his wishes.
He has acrophobia, which is the fear of heights, so he has asked that when EXO needs to fly to location for a schedule that they take a direct flight instead of having to switch planes. That way the psychological burden is minimalized. But SM ignored his requests.
He has also received many proposals from sponsors, companies, agents, etc but many of the opportunities were denied by SM Entertainment.
Having little say in the direction of his career has caused him to lose hope in the company.
So while his contract termination process looks like it’ll be an ugly one, especially since SM Entertainment is being a little more aggressive with their official statements, we hope that Luhan has a bright career ahead of him and much needed rest and relaxation with his family.
Who knows, maybe he and Kris can start bonding again.
Luhan just recently updated his Weibo saying, “I’m Home”.
