Huang Zitao Announces Hiatus: “Please Allow Me to Disappear for a Long Time”
Huang Zitao (黄子韬) announced on June 24 that he will be taking a long hiatus before making a comeback in the entertainment industry.
The former EXO singer, who has just finished work for the Chinese spin-off of Produce 101 <创造101>, told fans on Weibo that he will be taking a long break so he can concentrate on making music. He wrote, “I can finally put down my cell phone and movie script. I don’t even need to dance anymore, and I have no more use of the producing card. [I] will leave the buzz of the city to a place where no one can distract me, in a place where I can quietly rest and make my music.”
The 25-year-old has worked non-stop in the past few months. Following his fixed appearance in Street Dance of China <这！就是街舞>, he was cast as the nation’s producer in Produce 101, the Chinese spin-off of the Korean survival girl group show of the same name. After finishing Produce 101, Tao expressed his decision to take a break from variety shows, emphasizing that he wants to focus more on film and music. He explained, “There’s more peace and quiet to acting. Music allows me to recognize my own feelings the most.”
Tao ended his post expressing his gratitude toward his costars and fellow colleagues, saying, “It was my strong opponents who allowed me to continuously stay on top. I am thankful that I live in this era. I will return to the entertainment industry that belongs to you. Please allow me to disappear for a long time.”
