Despite weekend reports that EXO member Kris is auditioning for solo work in China, sources exclusively tell IdolWow! that the singer will not be moving on to other activities until his contract is with the group is terminated.
News quickly spread that the 23-year-old "Wolf" star was failing at castings in his homeland country after a story was published in Korea's Kukmin Ilbo newspaper on Sunday, June 15.
However, a source close to the EXO hunk tells IdolWow!: "There's no truth to this story. He's not been to any castings. He respects the boundaries of his contract and will not pursue other projects until things are over with SM Entertainment." (An SM rep had no comment).
On May 15, the EXO-M leader filed a lawsuit against agency SM Entertainment expressing his wish to terminate his contract and leave the group. At the same time the singer left Korea and moved back to China, where he has been staying with family.
