YouTuber Fanny Trần -- known for her Vietnamese covers of popular Kpop songs -- demonstrates that it is indeed possible to create a quality MV without having a slew of sponsors in your MV. I have probably watched Hôm Nay Anh Đang Làm Gì? more times than any other MV released by any big-name Vpop star in the last 3 months. Because of this, I have been left questioning why the recent comebacks by veteran Vpop stars have been so bland IMO. Is it a problem with the direction of the industry right now, or is it me who is out of touch?
I really don't know. All I know is that I find the underground, amateur, and Vietnamese indie music scene to be much more fun to explore than whatever is going on with mainstream Vpop these days. Hopefully, there will be something that comes out soon to spark my interest once again. If not, then I will probably just talk about random Vietnamese songs that I like and haven't yet gotten around to talk about on this blog.
