“Logo, name, choreography, and others are our intellectual properties and it is illegal to use it without our permission. We won’t take any legal actions towards the non-commercial content in the past. But, we will surely take an action against their activities which used for commercial purposes by using EXO’s name. As we contacted them, Millenium Boy explained that their promotions are not for gaining profit. They also promise not to use EXO’s contents again. Then we just end this as simple happening without any legal actions.”
