Former EXO members Kris and Luhan have settled their legal dispute with S.M. Entertainment over their contracts.

In May 2014, Kris filed a lawsuit against his agency to terminate his contract, citing violation of human rights. Luhan filed a lawsuit in October on grounds of discrimination.

Kris’ legal representatives announced on Thursday that Kris has signed a new contract with S.M that allows him to engage in activities outside of Korea and China. This means he can work with other recording labels or agencies that are not in the two countries.

Luhan’s legal representatives also said that Luhan has renewed his contract with S.M., and is able to freely pursue a career in China without being restrained by his agency.

Their new contracts last till 2022.
