SMTOWN LIVE is back as the talented artists of SM Entertainment gather for their annual concert.
SMTOWN LIVE 2022 held its first in-person show in Korea since 2017 last weekend, giving fans many memorable and heartwarming moments.
The concert allows fans to see rare interactions between some of K-Pop’s biggest groups. There was no lack of impressive collaboration stages and touching exchanges between the SM Entertainment artists.
There were adorable and funny moments between the artists as well. At SMTOWN LIVE in Suwon, aespa‘s Karina had her fangirl dreams come true when she was able to hold hands and bow with Girls’ Generation‘s leader Taeyeon. Karina exuded happiness, as she’s known to be a massive fan of her senior labelmate girl group.

Another fun interaction at the Suwon concert was when aespa’s Winter lost sight of her group while the SM Entertainment artists all gathered on the stage. Luckily, Red Velvet‘s Seulgi was there to guide her back to her fellow members.
During SMTOWN LIVE‘s concert in Tokyo, another idol group member lost her group; this time, it was Red Velvet’s Irene!
DJ and producer Raiden, signed under SM Entertainment’s EDM label ScreaM Records, shared videos on-stage from the concert and captured the moment Irene realized she didn’t know where her group members were.
In the short clip, it appears that Irene is asking someone off camera if they’ve seen her fellow members. In the background, EXO‘s Xiumin hilariously ducks out of the way, and SHINee‘s Key appears amused at the overall situation.

At the end of the clip, Red Velvet’s Seulgi comes to the rescue again, locating Irene and reaching out for the leader. Irene cutely runs over to join the rest of the group, and it seems maknae Yeri later held her hand to ensure Irene didn’t lose her way again.
