Lay Says He Will Always Be There When EXO Members Need Him
On December 4, 2018, Billboard launched their latest interview video with Lay. On that occasion, Lay also shared many stories, one of which was about EXO.
As is known, even though he is a member of EXO, lately, Lay has been busy with various solo activities in the entertainment world. In fact, in 2017, Lay was sidelined from EXO’s comeback.
After making many fans wait, Lay finally participated in EXO’s latest comeback through the album Don’t Mess Up My Tempo. Carrying the song titled “Tempo,” EXO’s new album was released on November 2, 2018.
In his latest interview with Billboard, Lay also had time to express his love for his fellow members. In fact, he said he would always be there for them.
“I love them. I love my members, that’s for sure,” Lay said. “And, I just want to say to them, ‘If you need me, I will always be there.'”
Lay’s words also drew various comments from fans and netizens. Many fell in love and praised Lay’s loyalty to the group.
“Lay is very loyal to EXO. He is really sweet,” said one netter. “I’m really proud of you, Lay! Your English language skills are getting better! I hope you will soon be in the agency together with other EXO members,” another netter said. “Lay is truly a great person! Not only talented, but he is also a hard worker and continues to establish good relations with EXO members. His progress in each interview went well. You will be even better in the future, Lay,” another commented.
Meanwhile, currently, EXO is busy with their latest comeback preparations through the repackaged album Love Shot. This album is planned to have four new songs, namely “Love Shot” in Korean and Mandarin, “Trauma” and “Wait.” SM Entertainment launched a group teaser for “Love Shot.” Unfortunately, Lay didn’t appear in the teaser.
Lay Participated in EXO’s Fifth Album Last October
After a long wait, finally, SM Entertainment gave the latest details about EXO’s comeback. This was stated by SM Entertainment on October 4, 2018.
SM Entertainment announced that EXO’s fifth album titled Don’t Mess Up My Tempo would be released on November 2, 2018.
In addition, SM Entertainment also stated that Lay would not only participate in the Chinese version of their new song. Lay also appeared in the MV.
This news, of course, received an amazingly lively welcome from EXO-L (the name for EXO fans). Besides finally knowing the exact date of the idol’s comeback, Lay, who was absent from EXO’s comeback several times, will participate. As is well known, Lay has been busy with his solo activities so he cannot participate in promotional activities with EXO often.
“EXO’s strength! They will come back! They are nine!!! Wow, I can’t wait!! #WeAreOneEXO,” wrote one netter. “Finally!!!! This is very good news! My OT9 heart is very happy,” another netter said.
“Lay’s back!! I am really happy that he will appear on the MV and comeback song. I hope he can also join the promotion with them. But this is already fun,” said another netter. “Hooray. Yixing is going to come in for a comeback. OT9!! Thank you SM!!” others commented.
Meanwhile, the album Don’t Mess Up My Tempo will be EXO’s first release in South Korea after releasing the special album Universe in December 2017. This album will also be a comeback promoted by EXO after The War: The Power of Music last September 2017.
In addition, Lay himself will make his debut in the United States in the near future with his third solo album NAMANANA. Lay’s U.S. debut album released on October 19, 2018.
Currently, Lay is busy going back and forth between Korea and China for the promotion of “Call Me Baby” and filming Oh My God.
