After much anticipation, F4 fans will finally get their dream come true: the popular Taiwanese boy band is reuniting onstage after four years. The four members, Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Vanness Wu and Ken Chu will be performing at Jiangsu TV’s Spring Festival Gala at the end of next month.
The boys will croon to a rendition of their hit tracks, such as “Meteor Rain,” that night. It is believed that they will be travelling to Beijing soon, and they are receiving a potential earnings of approximately RMB600million (S$1.17million) for this golden reunion.
F4 could have made a comeback at CCTV’s Spring Festival Gala earlier this year. However, the members could not coordinate their work schedules at that time, thus giving it a miss.
The boy band rose to fame after filming Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden in 2001. They became a popular icon in Asia’s entertainment scene and have since released three albums, which include the Mandarin cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love".
In 2008, F4 became preoccupied with their solo careers in acting and music, thus reducing group work assignments. They were last seen together performing at their concert in Japan in the same year.
Vic’s manager refused to comment on the reunion. On the other hand, Ken’s manager confirmed this good news indirectly, expressing, “[F4] has always received such invitations from the television stations.”
