On the afternoon of April 29, Mr. Tran Huong Duong, deputy director of the Performing Arts Department, said the department had prepared a document to be sent to the heads of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Department of Radio, Television and Electronic Information . Death and related entities coordinated the handling of male singer Son Tung M-TP’s MV “There’s no one at all” in the direction of suspending the release of this MV.
The MV “There is no one at all” startled many people right after its release when Son Tung M-TP chose a negative ending for his character. The way he set up a tragic situation like this as a teenage idol worried many parents.
A viewer shared, “As a father, as someone who went through the ‘youth rebellion’ period, I am very concerned about Son Tung M-TP’s new MV with colorful images. Son Tung M-TP is a famous artist with great influence, especially for young people or teenagers.
Many people expressed the same opinion: “The MV is too toxic. I checked it out and said I was fine. Hey, but the kids are studying, don’t understand how?”. “Children use social networks a lot and not everyone is aware of it. Not to mention that there are children who are sensitive or have mental health issues and they can’t think of anything to do. People in the public eye have to think about what they want to do,” another audience said gruffly.
