Zhang Li Yin

Zhang Liyin (born February 28, 1989), better known in South Korea as Jang Ri-in, is a Chinese singer. She is a former member of S.M. Entertainment's project group S.M. The Ballad. Subject to much publicity, Zhang was nicknamed the "Chinese BoA" and the next leader of the Korean Wave. She speaks both Mandarin, which is her first language, and fluent Korean, and has released singles in both China and South Korea, singing in both languages. Zhang has released only one studio album since her debut in 2006, but its singles carried a few top ten titles, such as "Timeless," which was a #1 hit, as well as "I Will". She is also the first foreign artist to win Best Newcomer award at the Mnet Asian Music Awards.
