Young R&B diva loves massages in her busy life

Young R&B diva loves massages in her busy life

On October 29, at the VIVA Beijing R&F Plaza, since early in the morning, it started playing Zhang Liyin's music. Whether it's "Timeless" or the new single "Moving On", this just-now 20-year-old Chinese girl uses her flawless voice to interpret the various nuances. This afternoon, at 4pm, the girl became a guest at the Popular Song Celebrity Chart, opening our eyes to the life of this loving young girl.

Zhang Liyin debuted in 2006 with "Timeless", introducing herself alongside with TVXQ's Xiah Junsu. Besides the song featuring Liyin's stunning capabilities with high notes, the song had a two-part MV, adding even more flavour to the song. For the single album's two songs, Zhang Liyin was fortunate enough to invite SJM's Donghae and Henry for collaboration. By working with the two good-looking members, this album is much eagerly anticipated by fans. The title song's MV, "Moving On", is a major part of the album. Not only is the MV aesthetically pleasing, its slideshow-like design is the first of its kind. Looks like Liyin still has many surprises in store for us.

For this Chinese album, besides being promoted in Beijing, Liyin will embark on a cross-country tour to promote her single, attending events to let herself be more known to the public as well as learn more about her own music. During the interview, the host asked her where she likes promoting more - in Korea or in China. Without hesitation, she answered, in China. Being able to return to her country after training in Korea for so long, Liyin believes that the Chinese market is much more powerful than the Korean market, and thus, she treasures her opportunity to be able to make music even more.

In her personal life, Liyin thinks that she is actually a very casual girl. When she's tired, she likes getting herself a massage to relax, but complains of the high cost of a massage at a Korean massage parlour. Since she has returned to China, she has more free time to receive massages. Surely, this is a good thing for her in more ways than one.

True Legend: kicking your ass in early 2010

I guess we have to call 2010 the year of the martial arts epics. How many is this now? Not that I'm complaining, and this one looks, well, pretty damn cool.

A new trailer chock full of fights (but short on plot and dialogue, which is not necessarily a bad thing) and two short but very cool TV spots for action master Yuen Woo-ping’s return to directing in the martial arts/fantasy movie “True Legend” have shown up online. If you absolutely need a plot for this thing, you can find that below. It also looks like the film has been pushed back to 2010.

Su Qi-Er, a wealthy man living during the Qing Dynasty who loses his fortune and reputation as a result of a conspiracy against him. After being forced out onto the streets, Su dedicates his life to martial arts and reemerges as a patriotic hero known as the “King of Beggars.”

Starring David Carradine, Michelle Yeoh, Cung Le, Jay Chou, Xun Zhou, Man Cheuk Chiu, Andy On, Conan Stevens, and Xiaodong Guo. Directed by Yuen Woo-ping.
