Ok so it looks like the creature Qilin is in pinyin so it would be pronounce chee-lin. Idk who these celebs are but if the celebs are pronoucing Qirin as Kieran, then they seem to be using the Japanese pronounciation which is spelled Kirin. I guess they can pronounce it however they want but I hope they don't go around saying that it's the Chinese pronounciation because it's not

I'm guessing this is not written in Pinyin? If this name is in Pinyin, it would be pronounced chee-rin or chee-reen
