In 2014, EXO released Overdose which was also a successful single. However, 2014 was the year that one of the Chinese members, Kris, left the group due to human rights violations against him. Another Chinese member, Luhan, also filed a lawsuit against the company and successfully left the group.

By this time, EXO was performing solo concerts and were continuously gaining a large fanbase all around the globe. In 2015, another Chinese member, Tao, left the group due to health issues and unfair treatment.
