Singer Bảo Anh has always struck me as a person that I wouldn't trust IRL. There's something about her face that I don't like. I don't know if it's her RBF that bothers me or if I am just a misogynistic pig. In her latest MV Sống Xa Anh Chẳng Dễ Dàng, Bảo Anh plays the role of a soulless ice-cold b*tch to perfection. I have never been more convinced that Bảo Anh is some sort of mythological creature out to steal the life essence of men than I am now.
Western mythology has always had numerous creatures that depict women as soul-stealers and destroyers of men. For example, there are the demon-like succubi and the enchantresses of sailors known as sirens. Both are seductive femme fatale figures who ensnare men with their irresistible feminine qualities. I'm sure Asian mythology contains stories of similar creatures. However, I don't have enough knowledge of Asian mythos to speak on it.
In Sống Xa Anh Chẳng Dễ Dàng, Bảo Anh's actions very much resembles those of a water nymph. A nymph is a minor female deity associated with a particular location or landform. Nymphs are often depicted as females who mate freely without care in myths. Therefore, the term nympho (short for nymphomaniac) is often used to describe a sexually promiscuous girl in today's modern English.
There's more to nymphs than just being thirsty for some hot action though. There's also a category of elemental beings that are closely associated with the elements -- earth, water, air, and fire. A water being/nymph is known as an undine. According to Wikipedia, undines are...
"usually found in forest pools and waterfalls...Although resembling humans in form they lack a human soul, so to achieve immortality they must acquire one by marrying a human. Such a union is not without risk for the man, because if he is unfaithful he is fated to die."
Hmm...the wandering spirit of a love-lorn woman trapped in a mountain pool? Sounds like an undine to me. I knew the guy in this MV should have ran the moment that he saw Bảo Anh's face. I don't trust that face! I would have booked it out of there like Forrest Gump in the Vietnam War scene and ran like the wind. Instead, dude ended up as a lifeless play thing with no means of escaping the cold grasp of a woman's scorn. FeelsJebaitedMan.
