Yes, it’s real. SM Entertainment soloist, Zhang Liyin – the first-ever Chinese female artist to debut from their company – will finally release a new single after a five-year hiatus.
We have compiled news from this new release into one article. Enjoy!
It has finally happened! After five long years, SM Entertainment has released a brand new music video teaser for Zhang Liyin’s new single, “Agape”. Although it will only be a digital single, we are excited nevertheless.
Although this article from TV Daily sounds more like PR for Zhang Liyin before her new single drops, we’ll still take it! Read the full translation below.
In a surprising turn of events, Zhang Liyin has been given a second chance on Mad for Music. She was previously eliminated from the music reality show, but she is now reinstated onto the show. The full translation of iFeng‘s article is below.
After two days of voting on Weibo, close to tens of thousands of netizens had participated. From the deadline to the time of the article publication for reporters, Zhang Liyin already led by a far margin with close to 90% of the votes.
Zhang Liyin, Super Junior, Super Junior-M, INFINITE, Tasty, and BTOB appeared at the Best of Best in Taipei concert today. (Yes, she was the only female artist!) Liyin sang a total of two songs, “Moving On” and “Set Me Free”, as well as participated in a short ‘talk’ segment with Super Junior member Kangin.
Many fans at the concert posted their reactions directly from the concert. We have compiled a long list of fancams and social media posts in our article. Check them out below!
It was announced today that EXO member Tao, along with actor Song Jaerim, have been cast alongside f(x) member Victoria Song in Zhang Liyin’s new music video.
Does this sound familiar to you? This casting reminds us of Liyin’s epic music videos back in 2006 and 2008.
We first heard of Zhang Liyin’s appearance on Anhui TV’s Mad for Music around mid-April 2014, when the TV show’s official Weibo account first confirmed Liyin’s guest appearance. Because most of Chocolyn’s articles on this websites were written to document events that occurred years ago, this recap article will summarize Liyin’s appearance on the show only. If you’re looking for a more detailed summary, please watch the episodes instead! We have embedded them throughout this post.
Mad for Music is a reality TV music competition show, similar to The Voice or I Am Singer, but instead of pitting solo singers against each other, they are put into teams where they have to compete as a team to avoid individual elimination.
It is not very often when Zhang Liyin’s personal life is a feature in its own news article, but here we are.
TV Daily wrote a short article on Liyin’s most recent Weibo photos. In the images, she can be seen enjoying the restaurants in Itaewon, Korea.
On April 20, Zhang Liyin joined Super Junior and EXO-M at Best of Best in Nanjing. She sang a total of three songs at the event: “Set Me Free”, “Y (Why…)”, and the duet with EXO member Chen, “Breath”.
Liyin looked absolutely stunning this evening. For once, her stylist didn’t style her in a dress that was black or white. Instead, she was dressed in a lovely grey-ish dress, tied together by a thin black belt. It went well with her hair colour!
Zhang Liyin was a guest at the YinYueTai V-Chart Awards on April 15th, 2014. Super Junior-M, Tasty (now called DLXL), Wei Chen, CN Blue, Zhou Bichang (also known as Bibi Zhou), and 2NE1’s CL were also in attendance.
Liyin’s performance of “Set Me Free” at this award was her first ever live performance of the song.
