Vietnamese singer Nguyen Thanh Tung, alias Son Tung M-TP, has been nominated by TC Candler as one of the Most 100 Beautiful Faces of the Year 2021.
He will vie for the title along with many other global idols such as football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, singer Justin Bieber, film stars Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson, and Chris Pine, and singers Jeon Jung-kook (alias Jungkook) of BTS band and Kim Jong Dae (alias Chen) of EXO band.
This is the second time Son Tung has entered this list of nominations by TC Candler.
The news has surfaced on social media platforms and immediately received great attention of netizens. Back in 2019 TCCAsia (known as TC Candler Asia) announced the list of the 100 Most Handsome Asia Faces of the Year, and singer Son Tung of Vietnam finished 46th.
Dubbed the “Prince of V-pop”, many journalists and music critics consider him one of the most successful V-pop artists at present.
Tung has received many accolades which include a MTV Europe Music Award, a Dedication Music Award, a Mnet Asian Music Award, seven Green Wave Awards and an inclusion on Forbes Vietnam’s 2018 30 Under 30 lists.
