Today is September 9th, 2020, and it’s officially been 14 years since Zhang Liyin debuted to the world as a singer. Time flies.
As Zhang Liyin’s foremost international fansite, we have shifted most of our updates onto Twitter as that is where most of the fanbase is, but we haven’t forgotten about the benefit of updating this website either!
Not much has happened in this fandom in the past year, but there have been a few updates:
- Some of Liyin’s most recent Weibo updates were regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. She made two posts in regards to the coronavirus:
- Liyin sent good wishes to medical staff for handling the outbreak
- She also paid respects to Li Wenliang, the doctor in Wuhan who was the first coronavirus whistleblower in the country
- During Liyin’s 30th birthday, her duet partner for “Lonely”, Henry Huo, left a comment on her Weibo to wish her a happy birthday. The comment ended up being the most voted comment on her social media page that day.
- Singer-songwriter Hins Cheung praised Liyin’s vocals on a radio show back in 2008, and compared her vocals to those of Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. On July 24th, he did it again. Hins shared a post on his Instagram Stories praising Liyin’s vocals on “Agape”.
Her company also uploaded her two newest songs onto Western-friendly music websites for international fans to purchase. Support Zhang Liyin by buying her music from legal websites!

There has also been a lot of talk on Chocolyn’s Discord about whether Liyin has left Show City Times. The management details on her Weibo changed quite a few times over the past year or so (e.g. different names, different phone numbers), but no one knows for sure. Join our Discord to chat with other Zhang Liyin fans about her career prospects.
To wrap up this blog, let us rewatch Liyin’s debut performance as a singer. She performed the now classic “Timeless” with Kim Junsu on MBC Music Core. It’s been 14 years since this performance. Can you believe it?
