Beating thousands of other competitors from different Asian countries, Vietnamese woman Tran Nguyen Tram Anh has been selected to be a member of the K-pop multinational music group Beauty Box.
On June 26, the official Facebook page of the South Korean By-U Entertainment revealed a clip introducing Beauty Box members. The girl-only group consists of two Korean, two Japanese, one Thai, and one Vietnamese.

In 2019, Tram Anh took part in a contest to select the second generation of Z-Girls – a multinational music group in South Korea.
In the contest, she has presented a pretty good vocal skill, alongside her impressive dancing. However, she only finished in the top 10 contestants. After this contest, she released a cover version of the song Người Tình Mùa Đông (The Winter Lover) under the stage name Chérie, expecting to pursue the music career in V-pop. She also featured in a cover music video of the popular Chinese movie series Journey to the West.

At the end of last year, the By-U Entertainment, in collaboration with singer Tang Nhat Tue Production of the HCM-City-based singer Tang Nhat Tue, organised a contest to find promising talent for their music group Beauty Box. Tram Anh finally was selected to go to Korea to join other members to practice for their debut.
According to director of the By-U Entertainment, Yeon Jun Bum, about 20,000 young people applied to compete in the selection round.
“By triumphing over such a large number of competitors, the six winners including the only Vietnamese member Tram Anh have proved their outstanding ability to become new stars,” he said.
Before their search, By-U Entertainment organised a number of Korean-Vietnamese music and cultural exchange events such as Dream Star Cup 2017, Sohyang SPARK Live Concert 2019.
