“Y (Why…)” was released on September 8th, 2006 as part of Zhang Liyin’s debut single. It received two different music videos: The original featuring Liyin singing on a stage, and a second that was released early 2007 to collide with her promotion activities of the song. The second video documented Liyin’s promotional activities of her single “Timeless” with then TVXQ member, Xiah Junsu. Both videos were in Korean.
As part of Liyin’s debut single “Timeless, “Y (Why…)” was released on both the Korean and ‘Asia Special’ single editions. The Korean edition of the single listed the Korean version of “Y (Why…)” only, while the ‘Asia Special’ edition listed both Korean and Mandarin versions.
