Fans have surely felt betrayed, but at the same time, they anticipate best for their idol too. The singer and actor felt relieved when he opened up about his dating terms with Guan Xiao Tong, so he didn’t hide it for too long. He didn’t desire to conceal the affair either.

In 2011, he was second of the four Chinese members to be officially introduced in Exo. Three years later, he filed a lawsuit to leave the K-pop group and eventually nullified the contract. Next, he went for a solo career from a bidding song for the 2022 Winter Olympics. It boosted Lu Han to go for its digital album, Reloaded I, in 2015, when it sold 880,000 copies on the first day.
After a year, he decided to include his tale in a series of albums under the theme “XXVII”, which stands for “Xperience,” “Xplore,” “Venture,” “Imagination” and “I” respectively.
