On November 4th, MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Award) took place at Nagoya Dome, Japan. This is an annual event of South Korea that makes a large number of people pay attention to it.
This event was held first in 1999 and this year, it took place in Japan with the participation of some famous Korean artists such as BTS, GOT7, TWICE, Dua Lipa, etc. Especially, Vietnam has two awards of Hoàng Thùy Linh and Jack & K-ICM.
Hoàng Thùy Linh is popularly known as a female singer and actress. The year 2019 is a special year of hers because she had some outstanding activities like the successful comeback with “Để Mị Nói Cho Mà Nghe” and became the main actress in a Vietnamese Series called Mê Cung (Maze).
At MAMA, Hoàng Thùy Linh got the award of “Best Asian Artist – Vietnam”. This award is the third achievement of hers in 2019, after “The Female Artist of Year” from Haper’s Bazaar Vietnam and “The Most Stylish Female Singer of the Year” at Style Awards 2019 of Elle Magazine Vietnam.
Hoàng Thùy Linh said: “I understand the feeling that artists who hold trophies in their hands will want to say something promising. Because it is like a very strong source of energy being poured into a burning torch. It makes the artist feel empowered and have more confidence, more determination to continue working, dedicating to those who love them.”
Besides Hoàng Thùy Linh, Jack & K-ICM got the “Best New Asian Artist – Vietnam”. This award is for the new artists who have the most striking activities in the year. Perhaps, 2019 is a successful year of Jack and K-ICM because they created success with some products like “Bạc Phận”, “Sóng Gió”, “Sao Em Vô Tình”, “Em Gì Ơi” and the most recent song for Vietnam is “Việt Nam Tôi” (My Vietnam).
Because both Vpop artists were unable to attend MAMA 2019 in Japan, both Hoàng Thùy Linh and Jack & K-ICM recorded their words to express their feelings.
