With Zhang Liyin’s second 2014 comeback highly anticipated by the international music fan community, Korean news site Newsen reported on the soloist’s upcoming promotional activities.

Zhang Liyin’s 4th single “Not Alone” will be released in China and in Korea on the 22nd at noon through various domestic music sites like Melon, Naver Music, Genie etc.

Zhang Liyin appeared in her first major TV appearance in her “Agape” and “Not Alone” promotions by appearing in an episode of Hunan TV’s Laugh Out Loud. Other guest stars in this episode included Xiaoshengyang and actor Xu Jia.

The show is in a sketch comedy format. Guests rehearse during the show, but generally the episodes are a little more reliant on improv and natural comedic ability than say, Saturday Night Live.

For once, SM Entertainment surprised Zhang Liyin fans.

The soloist’s management agency organized appearances on Korean music shows to help promote her new single “Agape”. Although the song is purely in Chinese and does not have a Korean version, SM Entertainment was able to negotiate appearance slots on MTV The Show, MBC Show Champion, and Mnet MCOUNTDOWN for Zhang Liyin. If you recall, the last time Zhang Liyin appeared on Mnet MCOUNTDOWN, it was for her debut single “Timeless”.

“Back Then” (那些年) is one of the two songs listed on Zhang Liyin’s “Agape” single. It is a cover song of Hu Xia’s original “Those Bygone Years” (那些年), a Chinese song released in 2011 for the popular Taiwanese movie You Are The Apple Of My Eye. Various SM Entertainment artists have covered Hu Xia’s song over the years, particularly live in concert or during interviews. Most notably, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun during the group’s fan meeting tour in 2013. However, Zhang Liyin is the first artist under the label to release an official recorded version of the song.
