Chinese media outlet Sina recently released an exclusive interview with EXO’s Tao where he detailed his harsh reaction to Kris’ departure and regret he now feels in reflection.
Interviewer: "Are there instances that you regret or thought you did wrong?"
Tao: "I regret what happened with Kris. My personal feelings were the cause for how I spoke to Kris that way," he continued. "My relationship was the best with Kris in the group, and I had no idea why he left. I woke up in the morning, saw the news, and found out he had left, so I posted [those criticisms] on impulse. He's a really good hyung and a good friend, but he had not told me when he left. I even wrote a lot about the experiences from the time I knew Kris, from training to now and when we debuted, at the time."
Tao also revealed he is in contact with Luhan, but Kris not so much. He said, "I don't know if he'd be able to forgive me. I'm scared he might think of what I wrote at the time. It was really impulsive at that time. If I had been how am I now, I would have supported Kris's choice. I hope that he will do well. I hope he thinks of me."
Tao also commented on a video that surfaced online recently, that showed him pushing Baekhyun. He said, "If you saw the entire video, you'd know that we were playing around. I love all of the EXO members. I don't know why they edited the video however they wanted and uploaded it. All of the members are playful."
