Background[edit]

While "1-4-3 (I Love You)" was featured on the mini-album, the rap section of the song is done in English and performed by Henry.

On August 14, 2013 it was announced that Henry would release the song as a single in an updated form, and would now feature Amber of f(x).[1]

A week later, on August 22, 2013, the music video was released.[2]

Origin of 1-4-3[edit]

In the song, 1-4-3 represents the breakdown of how many letters it takes to write "I love you". Using this specific number sequence has been most popularly used in the 1990s with the advent of pagers.

Connecting to this, the song also mentions the number sequence of 4-8-6, which represents the breakdown of how many strokes it takes to write 사랑해 (saranghae, the Korean phrase for "I love you") in Hangul.
