On June 11, 2024, a South Korean media outlet reported that EXO had plans to release a new winter album in 2024. However, the album is no longer indiscussion due to the legal dispute involving Chen, Baekhyun, Xiumin, and SME.

Earlier, the plans were halted due to the members’ solo and individual activities. But it was still being considered to be released by the end of the year. Due to the current scenario, it is practically impossible for the group to release any new music.

Moreover, SM Entertainment was also asked about the situation and if the group will be able to release an album this year. The company has gone on record to confirm that an album has been in the works. They added that regarding the change of plans, they have not discussed anything about it further. 

INB100 has also responded to the news and reassured that CBX will continue to be EXO members. Despite the ongoing conflict, the artists will faithfully be involved with all EXO activities under SM Entertainment.

1. Sigh, these trash journalists

2. “Still” no discussion about changesㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. Ah but SM is seriously in a hopeless situation…. because aside from those three, they still have innocent members

4. If I were SM, I’d be so hurt that I’d cancel everything right awayㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. I just really want a winter album ^^

6. Let’s start discussing it SM-ah ^_^ This is so disgraceful

7. SM, please just do what you want at this point……

8. But to be honest, how are they gonna progress from this situation?;

9. If they are doing this for the fans, then they should just come to an agreement and release the winter album…

10. I don’t know.. I don’t want them to shelve it either but…
