May 11th, 2014 – First win for “Not Spring, Love, or Cherry Blossoms”
HIGH4’s Collaboration with IU
High4 debuted with the song “Not Spring, Love, or Cherry Blossoms” which is a collaboration with popular solo artist IU. The song itself was actually written by IU for the band. Originally, IU and the leader, Sung-gu, have been very good friends for a long time, ever since they were trainees.
Not only did she write it, but IU also sings her part in the song. Using spring as the main theme, the song has sweet and ballad-like sounds in it which reminds the listener of spring’s charm. Myung-han and IU’s vocal add more sweetness to the song.
Alex’s rap also sounds soft even though his voice is deep. Right after the song was released, it charted number one on the Melon streaming site. The song also won first place on SBS Inkigayo on May 11th, 2014. Like the song “Cherry Blossom Ending” from the group Busker Busker, that hits the charts every year, so “Not Spring, Love, or Cherry Blossoms” also hits the charts every spring, even though it was released a long time ago. Are you curious about the song? Here’s the streaming link to their song.
High4’s Official Disbandment
In 2017, leader Sung-gu requested from the company for him to leave the band. N.A.P Entertainment received it well and Sung-gu also agreed to complete his schedule before leaving. Then, Sung-gu officially left the group and debuted as a solo singer under the stage name Reno. However, there’s no official announcement from the company about HIGH4’s future. Then, Alex, through his live on Instagram, announced that HIGH4 members are going their separate ways which obviously means that HIGH4 is disbanding. Nevertheless, even though the group has already disbanded, the members still look close to each other. In 2018, Sung-gu posted a photo of the band while meeting Alex, who was on a break from the military service.

After the group disbanded, each of the members pursued a solo career. In March 2018, Alex enlisted in the army. Originally, Alex had American citizenship. But, because he loves living in Korea he changed his citizenship to Korean. Sung-gu also enlisted in the army and is part of the army band.
For Young-jun and Myung-han, both of them have made appearances in the survival program MIXNINE as trainees from Eleven9 Entertainment. Sadly, Myung-han failed the audition and couldn’t go on the show. For Young-jun, he luckily passed the audition but was eliminated in episode 10.
