Recently, a funny and sad incident caused a stir on social networks. Things broke out when recently many famous and veteran actors were criticized for… filming a happy birthday clip.
According to Sohu, many actors sent their wishes to a special character named Bach Ung Thuong. Actors and famous showbiz names filming birthday videos include Tang Chi Vy, Do Huc Dong… But everything would have been for nothing if Bach Ung Thuong and the Bach family were not later arrested for fraud.
Because of the act of sending congratulations to criminals, some actors had to apologize, including two actors, Do Huc Dong and Charlie Cho. Both confessed that they did not know who the video would be sent to, and only accepted the invitation to record because they thought these wishes were harmless. While Do Huc Dong was “invited” by a friend, Charlie Cho filmed a video directed by the company and crew. He also revealed that “Just for the sake of food and clothes, I am forced to do this. Please forgive me for this behavior“.
From this “clue”, Sohu did a little research and realized that artists “filming blessing videos” is actually a new form of making money that has been on the rise recently. Many brands or wealthy names will spend money, asking artists to record videos wishing birthdays, congratulating grand openings… to increase their reputation. This job helps many older actors and artists who are past their prime earn extra income in addition to other jobs such as livestreaming sales.
Sohu discovered that not only “out of date” actors but also A-list stars also participate in this service. Ngo Kinh is one of the stars who caused surprise when he filmed a video congratulating the opening of a fried chicken company. Besides star Truong Tan Ho, many other famous actors such as Trieu Le Dinh, Duong Yen, couple Dang Sieu – Ton Le, Quan Hieu Dong… also have this form of making money but not as publicly as acting. other poorly known members.
