November 6 marks the 1st anniversary of F4 since they were formally introduced through a photoshoot with Harper’s Bazaar China last year.
It’s been a fast year for Dylan Wang, Darren Chen, Caesar Wu and Leon Leong, who rose to mainstream fame overnight due to Meteor Garden. The show seem to have evoked reception of varying extremes from audiences, but it definitely has endeared itself and its cast to quite a fanbase. I never thought of F4 as an actual boy group if not for the show that brought them together, yet the 2001 F4 comprised of Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Ken Chu and Vanness Wu still performed as four over a decade after the drama aired.
The new F4 has been on 11 magazine covers and nabbed 6 group endorsements in addition to their appearance and performances. I don’t know what is in store for them as a group, but it certainly seems like they have a bright future ahead. Happy Anniversary, F4!
