Meet Star Search 2019 graduates Herman Ke, Tyler Ten and Jai Siming, all 25 years old. But as a three-piece band, they’re a textbook display of the “volunteer effect”: multiple presences, star appeal and youthful energy.
Their management is aware of this, which is why they are now marketed under the name “HST”. This band name was first coined by their fans who collected the first letters of their names. “The trio will formally come together as HST to explore various opportunities for collaboration,” the press release said.
For the first time since the formation of the “8 Dukes” in 2014, which included Romeo Tang, Desmond Tang, Zhang Zhen Huang, Yan Fang, Jeffrey Xu, Shane Pou, Xu Bin and the late Aloysius Pan, Mediacorp’s talent managers named him. Collective of artists.

First, they were all born in 1996. They are also almost the same height: Ke 1.91m, Teng 1.9m and Zhai 1.87m and the same modeling agency. Therefore, it is not surprising that they found a common language, traveling together to competitions.
While Ke finished second – 28-year-old Zhan Ze Tong claimed first – the other two also received their fair share of supporters. And the trio has been particularly popular on TikTok, where their quirky videos and spontaneous dance moves have earned them thousands of young fans.
Since they often appear on each other’s social media accounts, it’s natural for viewers to think of them as connected. (Chantal Ng even got the two mixed up and tagged Ten as Keh on her Instagram stories. She later apologized and said people often mistake her for Tai Ying.)

How is a three-man team in the eyes of the public? The boys take the job easily.
“If you go in a group, you can feed off each other’s energy,” says Ke. “As they say, if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, you go together. One person’s weakness can be another person’s strength.” He added, “I think we’re more fun when we get together.”
Indeed, there was so much laughter and good-natured banter as we were taking pictures of the boys that our photographer turned around and said, “I think it’s going to be a long night.” He was not wrong.

But when his basketball skills led him to show business, “he was very excited. It somehow influenced me to become an actor. I didn’t believe I could, but he always told me I could. Maybe because I’m very expressive and talk a lot of nonsense. I felt that he saw potential in me. When I walked the red carpet at the gala premiere and my mom was there, I felt like I was making her so proud.”
He choked with emotion while talking about his mother. “My mother is in the USA. “I haven’t seen my family for a long time,” he said. His mother emigrated when he was 19, and he was scheduled to join her here after finishing his studies, but Star Search and then COVID-19 put an end to the job.

“Whenever I feel like I can’t succeed as an actor, he’s there to support me,” she said.

Zhai: I thought of something, but I dare not say it. Before covid-19, when we used to drink – when he’s a bit distracted, he’ll stand on the table and dance.
Ten: I’ve been doing this for 10 years now. I just finished the session. I started because I was very thin and insecure in the past. So I was pretty depressed. I started mei tai after watching the movie Om Bak. I took I fell in love and started competing locally.
