1 October 2012, Jakarta – S4 is an Indonesian boyband created by YS Media Entertainment with Rainbow Bridge agency. The S4 members were the winners of the Galaxy Superstar audition, a tv show in Indonesia. After having their idol training in Korea, S4 is ready to return to Indonesia for their debut this October.
Earlier, on September 25th, S4 is honored to perform in front of the Indonesian Ambassador for Korea and Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Mari Elka Pangestu on her visit to Korea. S4 also got a special request to perform Gangnam Style at the event.
In their first debut, S4’s members, Jeje, Arthur, Alif and Firly will have a collaboration with 4Minute’s Hyuna. After her success with B2ST’s Hyunseung and her popular performance with PSY in Gangnam Style, the S4 management hopes that they would be as successful as those other artists. “Hyuna is well known as a 4Minute member, but her solo career is also noticeable. She often had duets with Korean singers and most of the duets are very successful. I think she will bring us a good fortune,” said Louis Go, Marketing Director YS Media Entertainment.
For their debut, S4 will have a single produced by famous South Korean producer, Kim Do Hoon. Not only will they have a famous Korean producer, S4 will also collaborate with G.NA, who wrote the lyrics of this single.
