1. Who is your favorite celebrity in your country?
Honestly, I have actually never cared about the Vietnam’s showbiz. But there is one particular guy that I’m quite fond of, who is JVevermind, a very well-known vlogger in my country. His videos are extremely funny and inspiring, and last year he made it to the top 30 of Young Asian Entrepreneurs by Forbes.
2. Do you like any foreign celebrities?
Of course. I would say most of my idols are from other countries, as I have no interest in Vietnam’s showbiz. My favorite foreign celebrity is Taylor Swift, a global superstar, who is often known as “The Princess of country music”.
3. Would you like to be celebrity? Why?
Probably no. Despite the fact that I can make a fortune, life of a public figure has never been easy. In fact, there have been a lot of famous people involved in drug abuse or even suicide because of the extremely stressful life.
4. Do you think we should protect famous people’s privacy?
I only agree with this to an extent. Of course the private life of celebrities should be protected because it is a human right. On the other hand, some misbehaviors or even crimes committed by celebrated individuals should be brought into light. For example, the case of a Hollywood director sexually abused his female co-workers, must be exposed.
5. How do celebrities influence their fans in your country?
I’m not quite sure about this. I suppose they can influence their fans through social media. By uploading personal photos and videos online, celebrities can attract millions of followers. Good deeds such as charity work can spread a positive message to our community.

6. Do you like music?
I can’t think of any reason for not loving music, actually. Music is the only thing can pump me up whenever I feel down the dumps. It is also a vehicle for expressing personal emotions to yourself.

I have a soft spot for country music, you know. I enjoy the soothing tunes and the romantic lyrics of this genres. I’m also keen on EDM, which stands for Electronic Dance Music.
8. Do you think it’s important for children to learn to play a musical instrument?
In my view, knowing how to master a musical instrument is a good way for a child to develop comprehensively his or her intellectual ability. However, they should only be encouraged, rather than forced to learn this.
9. What kind of TV programmes do you like to watch?
I would say the singing and dancing contests always attract my attention. I mean, the contestants are incredibly talented and the crowds are amazing. For example, Dancing With The Stars is all the rage in Vietnam at the moment.
10. What are the most popular TV shows in your country?
I don’t really know. I guess dramas and reality shows are dominating the screen. Korean dramas have always been popular to young girls, and reality shows such as Vietnam’s Next Top Model have very high viewership.
11. Has the internet affected your viewing habits?
Absolutely, I watch most TV shows on the internet now, rather than a normal TV. There are so many streaming services like Netflix offering on-demand TV. I also like to binge watch a series of TV shows, just watch a whole series in a day or two rather than waiting for the next episode.
