4 in Love is a former Taiwanese all-female pop group. In 2000, BMG recruited four girls between the ages of 16 and 19, and named them 4 in Love.

Ling Chia-lin, Huang Hsiao-rou, Yang Cheng-lin, and Chang Chi-huey were each given new names based on different weather types: Cloudie, Sunnie, Rainie, and Windie, respectively. The label's strategy for the group was to promote their doll-like voices,[2] and market them as "The World's First 3D Group."[3]

The music video for their first lead single, "Fall in Love," was a first in the Taiwanese music industry for its use of three-dimensional computer animations.[4] In 2001, their second and last album, Who's Afraid of Whom?, earned them a Silver Award in the Most Adored Artiste category at the Malaysian Golden Melody Awards.[1]

Although Rainie's appearance in the hit drama Meteor Garden raised the group's profile, 4 in Love's popularity was still questionable at best. At the group's first autograph session, only a handful of fans had showed up.[5] Their songs, with the exception of "1001 Wishes" (一千零一個願望), were rarely successful on music charts.[2] In 2002, the group ultimately disbanded.
