In a time when the local show business is going through dark days full of numerous scandals , a song has recently been spread widely on the Internet due to its content focusing on the seedy side of the entertainment industry.
Titled “Scandal showbiz,” the song, written and sung by local actor Khuong Ngoc, mentions recent scandalous incidents including performers revealing their bodies on stage , artists showing off their luxury lives, and celebrities telling lies, as well as the industry’s temptations . The song’s writer also expressed the desperate feeling of people who are involved in the scandals.
The "Scandal Showbiz" song
Many netizens have said that the lyrics are very meaningful, though the melody is not really catchy; while some say that “scandal makers must feel embarrassed upon listening to this song.”
However, Khuong Ngoc said that his song is not about the recent scandalous time of Vietnamese showbiz.
“The song was written for a new film by director Victor Vu. I also play a role in it. It’s just about all of my feelings on taking part in the movie,” Ngoc shared.
“I myself didn’t expect that it would be so well-received,” he added.
