It is no doubt that SM Entertainment’s EXO, which consists of two subgroups entitled EXO-K and EXO-M, the latter of which Lay or Zhang Yixing is part of, has risen in popularity over the past few years. It was thanks to their unique structure, and despite the fact that several of their members have already left the group and have left SM Entertainment.

According to Koreaboo, the star, once again, is refusing to accept any gifts from fans.
According to a netizen who recounted his experience on Instinz, upon asking SM Entertainment how one could get a birthday gift to Lay, he was told that just like last year, Lay personally refusing to accept any material gifts from his fans. Instead, he wants his fans to become good Samaritans, and wants them to help out other people by performing kind acts or deeds to others on that day.
This, of course, shows the star’s generosity, despite his popularity, and despite the fact that according to Soompi, his autobiographical photo book broke online pre-order sales records. It had been pre-ordered more than sixty thousand times in the span of less than thirty minutes.
In his photo book, the star shared his anxieties of launching a career outside of China, and shared his thoughts on his fellow band mates.
