F4's debut album Meteor Rain

Following the success of Meteor Garden (2001), the four male leads, namely Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Ken Chu, and Vanness Wu, were shot into stardom.[2] They formed a boy band F4, named after the clique in the show, with the help of producer Angie Chai.[3] Their debut album was released on August 28, 2001.[4] It sold over 200,000 copies within a few days.[5]

The title song, "Liu Xing Yu," is a Chinese cover of Ken Hirai's "Gaining Through Losing" from his album of the same name.[6] It has since become one of F4's most popular songs.[7] They sang it when they reunited for Jiangsu TV’s Spring Festival in 2013.[8] F4 had another reunion in October 2020 on Jiangsu TV's 1001 Night Festival and performed two songs, including "Liu Xing Yu."[9] The song was also featured in the 2018 remake of Meteor Garden. It was also included on the soundtrack.[10]
