Women are chaste — not churning with sexual desire. Then the minute video hit. Thanks to four college students who posted the clip on the Internet on October 15, the world watched this teen queen and her former boyfriend do the nasty knowing that the camera was on them. In no time, her TV show was dumped by her network.
As a former student of Hanoi's College of Art, she was trained to be an actress. The video first hit YouTube and was quickly removed, but then it found its way onto the Vietnamese forums. The video spread widely throughout the nation and was the biggest scandal ever in the Vietnamese entertainment industry. The scandal caused an outcry domestically and internationally with the outstanding involvement of the media from the UK and the US. VTV later was heavily criticized for this show. Though it received very little promotion, the album still managed to gain much success with many critics who praised her singing ability and the album's quality. Similar to her debut album, many critics praised her singing ability and the album's production.
