An old clip of Tao in “Law of the Jungle” has resurfaced in the wake of recent controversy surrounding his possible departure from EXO.
In the episode, Tao sheds tears on the last night of his stint on the show, “I don’t want to go either… But because my fans in China are waiting… I will go, work hard, and come back.”
During the interview with staff, he shares, “To be honest, we are not the ones who have it hardest. It’s the [staff] that are here with us, not resting, who really suffered more than us.”
He continues, “I didn’t want to cry, but I’m so touched. As I promised, I will come again, so when I return, I will be a man that can take care of everyone. Fighting! I love you.”
Meanwhile, Tao made fans worry when he returned from filming for “Law of the Jungle” with an injured foot. According to SM Entertainment, Tao’s right foot was stabbed by coral reefs.
