Korean SM Entertainment’s Chinese solo female artist Zhang Liyin secretly came to Taiwan last week to promote her newest Chinese single “Not Alone”. She received an exclusive interview from MTV’s I Love Idols show.

Prior to the official interview, the host of the show, Ken Wu, forcefully charged into Zhang Liyin’s hotel room and even daringly rummaged through her purse. He then forced her to drink bitter melon juice, making Zhang Liyin say with a bitter face: “It really is very healthy!”

She also disclosed that her relationship with EXO was pretty good. They would invite each other out for small gatherings in private.

For long-time Zhang Liyin fans, tonight felt surreal. It reminded us of the Liyin’s Beijing album showcase six years ago, but it’s been a long six years, we can hardly remember the contents of what happened that time long ago.
