The SM Family just held the 2022 SM Town concert on August 20, 2022. The event was a fabulous one, with all the iconic SM Entertainment groups performing.
As the night rounded out, the artists all stepped onto the stage for one final song. Although most artists dutifully filed onto the stage to perform, Girls’ Generation‘s Sooyoung noticed something that made her hang back for a while. Super Junior‘s Eunhyuk had been hanging back in the wings instead of going on stage with the rest of the crew. It is possible that he was either waiting to exit with the rest of his group, or he was readying himself to face the crowds again. Sooyoung noticed his presence and stopped to give him a hug.

Later on, Tiffany and Seohyun also stopped briefly to pat Eunhyuk ok the shoulder, while YoonA went in for a hug.

While such moments might not have been as significant on other occasions, Eunhyuk was still in the midst of mourning for his late father. His father had passed on in the first week of August, 2022. The way the girls took a moment to comfort him proved their kind, warm-hearted nature. The girls were also seen keeping him company throughout the ending song. Sooyoung had seen him walking alone and ran up to put an arm around him.

YoonA also hugged him once more as he left the stage.

Super Junior fans were incredibly thankful to the girls of Girls’ Generation for reaching out to Eunhyuk at a difficult time. It must have been hard for Eunhyuk to take the stage so soon after the unfortunate news. He still did his best and remained highly professional, delivering a perfect performance to the fans. Fans can also rest-assured that he has the most supportive friends and family around him!
