Members of EXO’s sub-unit, EXO-M -- Luhan, Lay and Tao -- joined a charity event for needy neighbors in China.

Han Hong, a popular singer from Tibet, China, posted pictures of the trio holding up a paper with the words “I will go to Tsinghai” along with similar photos of A-level celebrities in China.

Tsinghai is situated in northwest China and most of the people there are quite poor. Han has been leading charity work to help underdeveloped rural areas in remote parts of China for several years.

“Brother Tao, thanks for your cheer up!” Han commented. “Luhan, putting efforts into shooting a film. Thank you for supporting my charity work. Go team!” he wrote, expressing continued appreciation for the efforts of K-pop singers.

Lastly, Han expressed his gratitude to Lay. “My friend Yixing (Lay’s Chinese name) also known as a rising emcee, awesome! Thank you.”

Currently, Luhan, Lay and Tao are on a concert tour with EXO, staging performances in major cities in China. The trio is to continue their journey in Chansha, Hunan province, on Sunday.
