EXO has announced their comeback with a repackaged album, Love Me Right, which will be released on June 3.

One of the most jarring observations that has been made from their concept photo is that Tao is missing from it, further raising questions of his official status with the group. Meanwhile, Lay, who was also rumoured to be leaving the group, was spotted in the group shot, greatly alleviating fans’ concerns.

Love Me Right will include four new tracks in addition to the original songs that were found on their second studio album, EXODUS.

This release will be closely watched by many as their comeback will happen at the same time as BIGBANG’s. The senior group will be releasing their second of four single albums, which will include two songs. Their previous release, which included ‘Bae Bae’ and ‘Loser’, has topped charts and won numerous weekly awards on Korean music programmes.

Meanwhile, Tao has continued to draw criticism for regularly updating his social media platforms but not making an official stance on his status with EXO. He has also been spotted wearing the group’s Cartier bracelet in recent photos, raising hopes that all is not lost for his future with the band.
