EXO-Ls Defend EXO’s Suho After ‘Lazy K-Pop Idol’ Comment Becomes Misunderstood
Just recently, EXO leader Suho had an all-expenses-paid fansign to Jeju Island for the K-pop idol's solo mini-album entitled "GREY SUIT." But instead of being greeted with smiles, Suho was met with controversy after an audio file from his event went viral online.

Notably, EXO's Suho was talking to his fans regarding a 9-line acrostic poem he came up with for "We Are One EXO Let's Love." It was notably written on the photocards of the EXO members. The K-pop idol was surprised to find out that it was an original idea not yet done.
"I love that I'm able to make good memories for my fans. To be honest, I didn't think this event is that big of a deal. I actually thought it was a pretty common event. Doesn't everyone do this...? The acrostic poem on the photo cards, too. I really thought someone would have tried that already," EXO' Suho expressed.
Adding to this, EXO's Suho joked that K-pop idols were 'getting kind of lazy' because they did not come up with the idea first. Furthermore, Suho jokingly blamed the entertainment companies for ignoring such small details.
Following this, netizens mistook Suho's joke. But to further add to the controversy, a Korean news site also wrote about the comment with the headline, "Suho Says Idols These Days Are Lazy."
To defend their K-pop idol, a plethora of comments explained that EXO's Suho was only kidding and that the K-pop idol was not serious. Positively, the majority of K-pop fans believe that the hate comments toward Suho were uncalled for.
