During his first and farewell concert, '2013 Heo Young Saeng Seoul Concert 0513 My Story', Heo Young Saeng's group, SS501, appeared on the stage for a short performance. It has been three years since the band has embarked on their solo activities.  The group never disbanded officially and even said continued statements that they are still a group, despite having solo careers. The appearance of Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Kyu Jong, Park Jung Min and Kim Hyung Jun showed the band's tried-and-tested friendship.

Their performance last night at the UNIQLO AX Hall was their first time to perform together as a group again after three years.  It was really memorable for the Triple S who attended the concert.  The group's last album as a group was released in May 2010, 'Destination', which had a short promotion run due to their contracts expiring. 

Before Young Saeng's October comeback, leader Kim Hyun Joong was the most recent to have had a comeback with 'Round 3'.  Kim Hyung Jun also released a digital single in August, in collaboration with Sunny Hill.  Kim Kyu Jong is currently also enlisted in the military, serving as a public worker.  Park Jung Min has also been busy with solo activities, with more focus on his Japanese endeavors.

In June, four members minus Hyun Joong, filmed a special anniversary video for what would have been their 8th year as group.  While Kim Hyun Joong wasn't in the video, he still showed his support by mentioning his time with SS501 and their anniversary during a solo concert on the same day.

The continued strength and friendship of the members behind the scenes is both a moment of pride and comfort for Triple S who always believe in the group's solidarity.  Maybe the group's labelmate KARA can follow in their footsteps, in the pending contract expiration cycle coming up.
