Many of EXO"s members are active on Instagram, but one of Tao"s latest pictures is gaining a lot of attention.
The youngest member of EXO-M posted a bright blue picture that showed himself jumping through the air joyfully. But, despite the happy image, Tao"s message to his nearly 2 million followers was very heartfelt.
The long post, written in English, depicted Tao"s sincerity at wanting to communicate with English-speaking fans, who may not understand his usual Chinese and Korean messages.
"I sincerely apologize that I haven"t talking to you guys in English for so long. I"m not good at English and I"m trying my best finding people translating for me so that for those of you who is more familiar with English can better understand me. Of course, I"m woking hard learning it," began Tao, starting off the message with an apology.
He then turned to an explanation, commenting on the multiple rumors that EXO has been involved in since its debut.
"In recent days, I realized there are lots of rumors about me. For most parts, it must be some misunderstandings between us. After all, rumors have stayed with me since I joined the EXO. I never want to explain or dispute with any of them, because I believe time is the best healer and it can help you guys understand everything. People who love me will always love me no matter what happened or what will happen. I do want you guys get to know more about me. I am here to say that I will never and ever lie to you guys. Please trust me like I trust all of you all the time. Love you all very much!"
Tao"s effort hasn"t gone unnoticed, and almost 500,000 people "liked" the picture. Many comments on the picture thank Tao for his attempt to communicate, which goes above and beyond that of many idols.
EXO is one of the most popular groups internationally, but the group"s promotions focus on Korea and China. With this message, it seems that EXO recognizes how popular it is and at least Tao knows how important it is to communicate with all of his fans, not only the ones who he comes in contact with the most often.
