On October 20, a photo was released on SMTown's official global twitter with Group S, Super Junior and Girls' Generation.

They all looked happy and were smiling at the camera as they had just completed their 'SMTown Live World Tour IV in Shanghai'.

Internet users commented, "This is great", "Its been awhile since we've seen Group S" and "Kangin looks so funny in this picture."

'SMTOWN Live World Tour IV' is a part of their worldwide concert series and has already completed concerts in Korea and Japan. This tour started on August 15 in Seoul before heading off to overseas countries.

During the concert in Shanghai, SM artists including BoA, TVXQ, SHINee, f(x) and more performed on stage and heated up Shanghai.

Fans were also surprised to see Group S as it has been awhile since they last performed together. Group S consists of Shinhwa member Shin Hye Sung, former H.O.T member Kangta and singer Lee Ji Hoon.

However, for this show, EXO Luhan and Giris' Generation Jessica were not seen as Luhan had recently filed a lawsuit against SM and Jessica had been released from Girls' Generation due to her and her agency's differences in priorities.

It was released recently that Jessica would be rebranding her fashion label to 'BLANC & ECLARE' and move the brand to New York City.

Despite these incidents, they were still able to being in around 30,000 fans to the concert.

This tour will head to Indonesia next on December 27 at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium. This will be the last stop in their 'SMTOWN Live World Tour IV' series.

Last year they held their 'SM Town Live World Tour III' and traveled to California, Tokyo, Seoul, Jakarta, Singapore and more. As of 2014, this concert series has brought in over 1 million fans.
