Apparently Jay Park and the members of rookie group BOB4 do. Soon to hit up the summer styling of Jay Park’s New Breed Asia Tour on August 18 are the pop-rockin’ Band Of Boys 4.

BOB4 made their official debut in June with “Mystery Girl” featuring Dal Shabet‘s former member Viki. But recently, the group’s four members— Yubin, Min Soo, Myung Kyu and leader In Hoe— were seen snapping a photo during their rehearsals with Jay Park in preparation for his concert.

Pairing with the hip-hop idol seems like an unlikely match, but we’re glad to see BOB4′s exposure next to Jay Park’s big name. Of course, he won’t be upstaged by such a rookie group, right? While BOB4 may be green to such a large scale concert, we wouldn’t mention it to them after their year and a half they just spent in Hongdae.

Despite honing their stuff in South Korea’s district for all things indie and underground, they’re taking their shot at the big time lightly. BOB4′s agency was quoted by Enews saying, “Their passion burns as fiercely as if it were their own concert as the date approaches.” And as that date quickly approaches, Jay Park apparently wanted to celebrate the day with a music video for “New Breed.”

As for Jay Park and BOB4′s rap-rock collaboration, we’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out this weekend at Seoul’s Olympic Park Stadium. Let us know if you go!
