Today, Zhang Liyin attended the Jeju Island fan signing event with fellow SM The Ballad members, Zhou Mi of Super Junior-M, and Chen of EXO.
Because it is only one day before Liyin’s birthday – her birthday is February 28th, 1989 – SM Entertainment management arranged a special surprise for Liyin. However, the surprise did not go as planned…
We’ve also translated some Korean fan accounts of Liyin at the event. Click through to read the full event summary!
For the above video, we have a roughly translated transcript:
Chen: (talking about food) It’s really delicious! I really wanted to eat the delicacies here but it’s a waste we’re not able to.
Zhoumi: Hi everyone, how are you? Honestly, today is the 1st time I came to Jeju-do, really wanted to try the delicacies here but it’s a waste we didn’t have time. Super Junior-M, our Zhang Liyin, and EXO will be having our comeback soon. Please look forward to it!! Hopefully, we will come to Jeju-do again, please look forward to it.
Liyin: Thank you for coming today, it’s very cold today so please take care and be careful not to catch a cold. Thank you for the continuous support, (and something along the lines of I will work hard and please look forward to it.)
Other fan accounts of the event, particularly of fans who lined up to get autographs, have also been translated below. Enjoy!

Fan Account #2
When I was at the fansign, I said to Liyin ‘Why are you so cute’ ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
When she heard me say that, her eyes widen and said ‘Neh?! I’m not cute~’
I really wanted to kidnap her ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Unnie, Saranghaeyooo
Please be mine, really…
When she was speaking in Korean, when there is something she doesn’t know, she will look over to Jongdae and asked ‘Is this correct??’ Really damn cute
