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”.

Hankyung reported:

Zhang Liyin has a sweet comeback stage on M!Net Countdown.

Today, M!Net introduced Zhang Liyin’s ‘Agape’ on the Korean cable channel.
