8 Popular Chinese Actors Who've Trained Under SM Entertainment

I won't be listing idols such as Lay (of EXO), Kun, WinWin, Xiaojun, Lucas, Yangyang, or Hendery (of NCT/WayV), or Zhou Mi (Super Junior-M) as they are still under SM Entertainment.

The requirements for this list are:

-Actors (so males)

-Are no longer under SM Entertainment (special case for the former EXO members though)

-Are decently active in China/Taiwan


First off we'll start with the three everybody probably already knows.

(Two of the past members (Kris & Luhan) of EXO are still technically under SM Entertainment until 2022 but only if they promote in Korea or Japan due to the settlement of the lawsuit. I am unsure about Tao's lawsuit as I haven't looked up info on it in awhile as far as I know his lawsuit went in SM's favor and he's still under them. But I will be including them anyways.)

Just think if Neo Hou, Li Hong Yi, Xing Zhao Lin, and Zhou Yan Chen had stayed they could've been potential NCT/WayV members? That would be so weird!
