It seems like former EXO member Tao's solo activities in China are off to a rocky start.

Besides having his music videos pulled from social media by SM Entertainment, the young singer is now receiving some bad publicity from one of China's largest media outlets, Sina, after arriving over an hour let to a scheduled interview.

According to AllKpop, the Chinese media outlet wrote their grievances over their blog. They wrote of their initial excitement to talk with Tao, but were disappointed after an hour had passed and the idol still had not shown up for their scheduled interview.

Tao's side has already made a counterclaim, however. "We're very busy, there are many outlets requesting for exclusive interviews," Tao's group allegedly sent via text message to Sina. They further explained that due to Tao's hair and makeup running late he could not come to the interview on time.

Tao's tardiness has garnered criticism from other celebrity figures. His side has simply replied to the matter saying that it is not Tao's fault, but rather a mistake by his team and management.

Although Tao's status as an EXO member is still a mystery, the young Chinese idol has already released his first digital solo album. Since its release, Tao as sold around 670,000 copies. He is also said to be preparing for mini concerts around China to promote the album.
