"Qing Fei De Yi" was included on Yu's album, Tidal Wave

The song was composed by Tang Xiao Kang (汤小康), who moved to Taipei in 1999 to pursue his musical dreams. His career took off when Harlem Yu chose to record "Qing Fei De Yi" in 2001.[1] The song was used as the theme song for the hit Taiwanese drama, Meteor Garden. Angie Chai obtained "Qing Fei De Yi" by striking a deal with the record company to get the music free of charge at a reduced percentage of soundtrack sales.[2] Yu had a cameo in the final episode of Meteor Garden, in which he played a street musician performing the song.[3]

In 2018, lyrical and instrumental versions of the song were used in the remake of Meteor Garden.[4] Blake Abbie, who portrayed Thomas, sung it in an episode. Yu later had a cameo, once again playing the song, in the series finale alongside the main characters and producer Angie Chai.[3]
