SM releases Zhang Liyin out of the dungeon for SMTOWN Taiwan

"Left Shore of Happiness"

"Moving On"

Source: si5441058

She just continues to improve time after time again. She's singing more with a R&B sound, and less of that "Moving On" C-Pop single crap.

She sounds amazing.

Should have let her bust out A Flame For You! Girl has so much talent, so good to hear of her performing!

OP, Y U NO LIKE "MOVING ON"!? I really liked it...

Flawless performances btw. I need more Zhang Li Yin in my life.

i thought it was a really boring single. it was such a generic cpop song. not really A-side worthy.
mediumpurple 10th-Jun-2012 10:06 pm (UTC)
is she done recording the album?it seems like she's been recording forever...or either SM just shafted her
rikayla 10th-Jun-2012 11:21 pm (UTC)
she finished recording her album AGES already :( ever since november 2011, but SM has just never given the go ahead for promotions
ssehun 10th-Jun-2012 11:07 pm (UTC)
i need new songs from her ;_____; I Will album and Moving On single are already overplayed on my iPod ;;;;
rikayla 10th-Jun-2012 11:22 pm (UTC)

this pissed me off.

Omg ; ;
That's so mean of SM!! What fuckers!!
I bet they told her to iron it and bring it with her for rehearsals.

Can you imagine how awkward it must've been when they were all getting fitted and she was probably waiting for her shirt, but then the stylist probably was like "ohhh sorry, we don't have any more...you can wear your old one or get one for the merch store" and everyone was probably snickering or making jokes. (I let my imagination run wild)

i don't know what they said to her, but imagine being amongst all those other artists in SM at the end of the concert - majority of them your hoobaes!! - and being like, one of 2-3 people who's wearing an old shirt. like fuck, they can't even spare a $2 new shirt for her? wtf. and lbr, it's not like she won't be there for just one stop. she'll be there for the china tour stop too probably.
sayufied 11th-Jun-2012 06:06 am (UTC)
Who else was wearing the old shirt?!

Ughhh I feel so bad for her ; ; I want her to get out and sign with a label that will appreciate her talent and not leave her hangin and completely ignore her ; ;!!

Apparently Leeteuk and Sungmin were also wearing old shirts, so it's probably not because ZLY was being shafted? Idk.

I don't know anything about her other than her name nor do I listen to her songs but this fills me with so much rage. I can't imagine being made to stand on stage with an old t-shirt. Like, did they just conveniently forget she was part of the company? Btw do you know if she's even close to anyone in SM? I may be reading too much into the picture but she looks so out of place.
rikayla 11th-Jun-2012 02:03 am (UTC)
no, you're reading that photo right. i don't know if it's her personality or what, but she doesn't have a lot of close friends in the company. i think this has a lot to do with the fact that she was the second chinese artist EVER to debut in SM Entertainment. han geng had all his 12 super junior brothers, but ZLY debuted as a soloist in 2006. that and being an only child away from home... =/ even victoria had her 4 other members. she's kinda known for having a quiet personality, but idk, when over half of the current SM roster are idol groups and you're not korean, you'd feel left out.

even in end-of-concert SM fancams, you always see people dragging her around to include her in stuff. so she doesn't have many friends in SM, except for a few chinese trainees.

I barely even know anything about her, but reading this makes my heart actually hurt for her.
anconeous 11th-Jun-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
She's probably closer to most of the Soshi girls than the rest of the SMTown people, since she was in the lineup to debut with them for a while, before it was decided she'll debut ahead of them solo.
rikayla 11th-Jun-2012 02:23 am (UTC)
not at all, lol. she dormed with tiffany/taeyeon during debut days and i haven't seen a single photo of them together at SMTOWN concerts, or ever see them even interacting together on-stage in fancams.
carmine_pink 11th-Jun-2012 08:25 am (UTC)
Well, Leeteuk and Sungmin were also wearing old shirts and they are hardly forgotten by the company, so idek what was going on.
yu_mii 11th-Jun-2012 02:16 am (UTC)
Why do they do this? D;
anconeous 11th-Jun-2012 02:24 am (UTC)
WTF?! Don't they have boxes worth of shirts or something? Some of the artists have differently styled shirts for every SMTown concert. Hell, even Lee Sooman has a shirt. Hell, even EXO-K wore a new set of those shirts on their flight back home to Korea the next day.

Fuck this shit. She deserves better than that.
rikayla 11th-Jun-2012 02:36 am (UTC)
ikr, i want to convince myself that maybe ZLY herself wanted to wear an old 2010 shirt bc it was better styled/customized and didn't want to wear a non-customized 2012 shirt, but lol, it feels like i'm just making excuses =/

Apparently Leeteuk and Sungmin were also wearing old shirts, so we're probably reading too much into this... idk.
allthingsgood 11th-Jun-2012 03:34 am (UTC)
SM Towns must be hell for ZLY :\ On the one hand, yay let out of the cage! On the other hand, mandatory awkward party you MUST attend where you're not friends with anyone :\ Guhhhhh I feel awful for her. And this is just a shirt that they must have BOXES of extras around for random emergencies and giving away to staff.
tsuyoi_hikari 11th-Jun-2012 03:38 am (UTC)
Wow, how low can SM be?

This really make me pissed off. She should leave the company already. They treated her like shit where in fact she is one of the most vocally talented artists that SM has ever produced. She remains until today as one of my fave female artist from SM aside from CSJH The Grace.
es2pido 11th-Jun-2012 04:37 am (UTC)
This makes me sad :(
summer_concerto 11th-Jun-2012 05:45 am (UTC)
I didn't noticed about this at all and this really pisses the hell out of me.
carmine_pink 11th-Jun-2012 08:14 am (UTC)
Um, guys, let's all chill. I don't know what was the case, but even Leeteuk and Sungmin were wearing old 2010 shirts.
anathema_switch 11th-Jun-2012 11:21 pm (UTC)
As others said leeteuk and sungmin wore 2010 shirts, but I wonder if they were in the exact same style as their 2010 shirts as linyins pictures suggest

So happy that I got to see her live in LA the first time they came. She only got two songs, but she was AMAZING! Plus, she sang an SES song.
thefishismine 11th-Jun-2012 02:31 am (UTC)
She's so amazing! And I love the hair, looks great on her! When is her album coming out? She's been recording it for ages. :(
rikayla 11th-Jun-2012 04:25 am (UTC)
she finished album recording ages ago, back in november. she was supposed to have a comeback in february but i think EXO pushed that back, so idk when her comeback will be.

love your icon btw <3
honeyfunnybunny 11th-Jun-2012 03:52 am (UTC)
she improved so much omg. so much emotion and control over her voice, practicing/training has really done her good. but she needs a new album and idec if its in china or in korea just give me something new. they could also include special promotional activities like in thailand or something where she is also highly appreciated.
