Former EXO member Kris is featured on the cover of China’s L’Officiel Hommes Magazine. The former idol is endorsing fashion bag brand MCM for the shoot. Wu Yi Fan, known by his stage name, Kris, is a Chinese actor and singer-songwriter. He is a former member of EXO and as well, the former leader of its sub-group, EXO-M. As of May 14, 2014, he took action against the company, SM by nullifying his contract to leave the group. It is believed that it was because of contractual issues with the company. He immigrated to Canada at the age of 11; he is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, English, as well as Korean.
Wu was introduced as the eleventh member of EXO on February 17, 2012 as EXO-M's leader. He is one of four Chinese members out of twelve in EXO. EXO debuted on April 8, 2012 with MAMA. The group achieved commercial success with their first studio XOXO and its repackaged version in 2013.
On May 15, 2014, S.M. Entertainment confirmed through an interview that Wu had filed a lawsuit against the agency to terminate his contract. The same law firm that represented Han Geng of Super Junior in his lawsuit against S.M. Entertainment will also be representing Wu.
