Li Ying’s participation in the variety show, Mystery Music Show, will air on March 20th. The show is about guessing the real identity of singers – fake or real, through hearing their voices. Other guests on the panel are Hua Chen Yu, Joey Yung and Daniel Chan. I hear Lay and G.Dragon were also invited.
