Due to the recent injury sustained by EXO’s Kai during the recent “EXO PLANET #3 – EXO’rDIUM” concerts, Kai will not be participating in promotions for the group’s repackage album, “Lotto.”
Promotions will begin after the album release at midnight, August 18, and their first comeback stage will be held on KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank” on August 19. Kai will not be performing for “Music Bank,” and will be sitting out the entirety of promotions. A source from SM said to News1, “In order to focus on treatment of Kai’s ankle, Kai will unfortunately not be taking part in broadcast promotions. He did participate in the album recording and music video filming.”[Song title and lyrics changed to Louder for KBS and MBC]
EXO Changes Title Track “Lotto” For KBS And MBC Promotions
On August 17, SM Entertainment revealed that EXO will be promoting “different” songs on different music shows.
Previously, KBS deemed their comeback title track “Lotto” unfit for broadcast due to the name referring to a brand (lottery ticket). Therefore, EXO will not be able to promote “Lotto” as is on KBS.
A source from SM Entertainment stated, “The title of ‘Lotto’ will be changed to ‘Louder’ for KBS and MBC. Likewise, the word ‘lotto’ will be switched with ‘louder’ in the lyrics. We will use the original ‘Lotto’ for SBS.”
EXO will release “Lotto” on August 18 at 12 a.m. KST. They will begin their music show performances with KBS2’s “Music Bank” on August 19 and continue to perform on other music shows.
