It saddens me to see how Vpop groups are struggling to get recognition. Do you think a Produce Vietnam be the answer? It helped CPOP in a way.
That's a good idea, kind of like a talent show maybe? I haven't heard of Produce 101, but a quick google search shows me. I could see this working for vpop groups/artists. I'd welcome it in fact.
It could be successful if they have the backing of CJ ENM since that Korean company is already prominent in Vietnam. Personally though, I don't think it will be successful in Vietnam because Produce 101 is pretty much a copycat of AKB48. Vietnam already has a mega group like that called SGO48 but they only hold a few music videos with 2-4 million views only. Business wise, it's better to invest in a solo artist in VN or maybe a group with 2-5 members like Da LAB. I noticed any artist trying to copy Kpop in Vietnam immediately gets shut down. The ones who are successful are the ones who stick to pop ballad songs.
Solo artists get the most recognition in Vietnam. Many boy/girl groups in VN have flopped or are barely hanging by a thread.
