“I’ve spent a very long time struggling to find my own way in the music industry,” Tuan said. “I’m happy that my efforts have gained the love of fans. That is motivation for me to stand up and introduce more quality works.”

The Mai Vang Award for favourite film was given to TV serial Gạo Nếp Gạo Tẻ (Son and Daughter), a remake of the South Korean TV serial Wang’s Family, which appeared in 2013.

The 109-episode serial, a production of HCM City Television, was directed by Thach Thao and Hoang Anh. It is about the problems and challenges faced by a Vietnamese family in today’s society.

Trung Dung and Thuy Ngan, who played leading roles in the film, won awards for favourite actor and actress.

Ngan said: “Holding the trophy, I can say that my dream has come true. I worked hard to follow my passion for acting and my effort has paid off. “
