Former EXO member Tao confessed his feelings to a Korean female, believed to be IU, drawing keen attention.
Today, remarks made by former EXO member Tao during his Weibo Live heated up the online communities and social media.
According to these posts, Tao recently hosted a live session on Weibo and said, “There’s a girl I really like. I once sent her a message, but she never replied back. I can ask her up tomorrow. She’s a Korean artist.”
He then also added, “If this becomes a hot topic tomorrow and if she learns about me liking her, then it’s all good. But then it’s useless if we can’t meet.” Tao is also said to have said, “If she likes me back, I will marry her instantly.”
Upon reading the post, netizens speculated that the girl in his remarks is IU as she is the only Korean celebrity that Tao is currently following on Instagram. Tao is only following three people on Instagram. Except IU, the two are artists from Tao’s agency and Chinese.
In fact, Tao openly expressed his fondness by posting a comment on IU’s Instagram post in May. At the time, IU celebrated her own birthday by writing, “Happy birthday to me. It’s my 8 day,” and Tao left three cake-shaped emoticons in his comment.
