Blossomy is not just Taiwanese girl group S.H.E's 11th studio album, marking Selina Jen, Hebe Tien and Ella Chen's 11th year in showbiz.

Even though their longevity is unusual in the fickle world of Mandopop, the album could have been another run-of-the-mill release. Except that it is not.

In October 2010, while filming the television drama I Have A Date With Spring, Jen was badly hurt in an accident involving explosives which left her with burns, some as severe as third-degree, on her back, limbs and waist - around 50 per cent of her body.

It has been a long and painful journey back to health for the 31-year-old, let alone back to the business of making music.
