In May, his music video Trốn Tìm (Hide and Seek) was ranked No 1 trending on Youtube in Vietnam 26 hours after its release.

They also star in many TV comedy series.

During the fourth wave of COVID-19 pandemic in Vietnam recently, the two artists worked together to call on the support of kind-hearted people to donate essentials goods for the virus-hit hotspots in Bac Giang and Bac Ninh provinces

Female choreographer Tran Ly Ly, one of Forbes’ top 50 most influential women in Vietnam in 2019, and her peer, dancer Quang Dang, who choreographed the global viral dance accompanying Vietnamese song Ghen Cô Vy about the necessity of hand-washing during the COVID-19 outbreak, have also been nominated for the Impressive Artist Awards.

In a protective suit, the former Miss Universe guided people at vaccination spots. She also helped to transport essential goods and food to quarantined areas.
