Korean singer Han Sara from the Hanguk nation of South Korea (aka Hàn Quốc in Vietnamese) debuts her first MV as a rookie Vpop singer in Tớ Thích Cậu. Han Sara first got the attention of the public when she appeared on The Voice Vietnam singing a cover version of Sơn Tùng M-TP's hit song Lạc Trôi.
Veteran Vpop singer Đông Nhi quickly took Sara under her wing in a move that didn't surprise me one bit. If you look at Đông Nhi's recent 6th Sense Entertainment backed artists (i.e. Uni5 and Lip B), you will see that they all take a Kpop inspired approached to pop music. You don't become as successful as Đông Nhi has been by not knowing what's hot and trendy. Like a true opportunist, Đông Nhi knows how to strike when the iron is hot. With Đông Nhi's guidance, I believe Han Sara will shape up to be a pretty successful artist.
RIP Hari Won's career. Now that a younger/cuter Korean singer is on the come up, Hari Won's days are numbered. JK. I like Hari Won. But because Hari Won is seen as a Korean singer (even though she is half-Korean and half-Vietnamese, which makes her every bit as Vietnamese as Korean IMO), people are going to naturally compare the two singers. It's unfair to both singers, but that's just the way it is. Things will never be the same...I see no changes, all I see is racist faces. Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races. Sorry, my inner Tupac just took over for a hot second. Back to our scheduled teenage pop song discussion.
Tớ Thích Cậu is a pretty good cutesy teenage pop MV. It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, but it gets the job done nonetheless. It's your standard shy school girl crushing on a boy who doesn't take notice of said girl. As much as I like imagining myself screaming out "THUG LIFE!" and emptying a clip, I also enjoy these bubblegum pop style of songs. Tớ thích teenage pop songs. You got a problem with that?
