On August 13, EXO's Lay studio reported that they will be terminating their contract with Korea's Samsung in support of China'a policy, 'One-China policy'. The announcement was made on Weibo after reviewing the companies he model for, and since Samsung Electronic's global website does not follow the policy, Lay will be canceling his contract. The announcement stated, "Samsung Electronics, which Lay is a model for, has unclear definitions of country and region on its official global site. The act of ambiguity about the integrity of our sovereignty and territory has severely hurt the national feelings of Chinese compatriots. We express our regret and state we cannot tolerate this."

For those unaware of the 'One-China policy', this policy governs how companies define China and their territories. For example, listing Macau and Hong Kong under China and not as independent territories.
