Check out the fun little interview Vietlish scored with the teen idol who is currently studying abroad .

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Shes only 20 years of age and having emerged as child actress, singer, performer, TV presenter and model. She is now a household recognisable name and face of the Vietnam entertainment industry. Her name is Toc Tien or directly translated as fairy hair, but since early February this year, Tien had made the bold transition to California, US to complete her university studies of a Bachelor of Science. So far, her journey has been a rocky, lonely and a highly scheduled one, having been the target of online forums for her controversial appearance with the current Vietnam flag, and facing back to back commitments of her work for Thuy Nga and her study load.

But beyond all this, Tien reveals herself as a happy go lucky, non pretentious girl who is fun and focused and knows how to deliver a charismatic laugh.

Vietlish Team Joseph Hieu Dinh and Maria Tran had the privilege of meeting this established youth star at the back of the local Thuy Nga store after being rejected at meeting space at Lee Sandwiches just a couple metres down the road.

Maria Trans limited Vietnamesey skills had put her as background as Joseph Hieu Dinh flaunted his diasporic Vietnamese skills to communicate to the lovely and funky interview highlight of his week.

Further discoveries indicates her mainstream Vietnam influence over a wide range of notable worldwide brands such as Pepsi, Biore and immobile.

What is much more interesting about Toc Tien is she isn’t afraid to be herself. It surely is evident on her Facebook site when she makes visible her daily schooling life; nerdy glasses, fuzzy hair and cheesy grins and for that same reason she is possibly the next generation of youth celebrities who know how to be down to earth and keeping it real.

Kudos to Vietlish for the quick update on one of my favorite singers.
