"Goodbye, brother. Let's perform on the same stage again when we have the chance next time. As your brother, I support your every decision. Bless you."

"I can't believe it. I am upset and disappointed at the management as this is not the first time something like this has happened. There must be something wrong with the contract. I really don't know what will happen next."

- Local fan Li Meixian, 23, relief teacher

"It has been a tough year for EXO fans. I am devastated and I feel lost. I need some time to recover from this. However, we EXO fans respect Luhan's decision as he is really overworked and exhausted. The members are always flying around and the airport is like their second home. No matter what, I will continue to support the remaining 10 members."

- Local fan Nicole Lu, 21, undergraduate

"We love you, too, and we respect your decision. Please take care of yourself."

- Netizen Noreunoor in response to Luhan's Instagram post
