On the morning of July 5, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Vietnam said that the incident related to actor Hồng Đăng and musician Hồ Hoài Anh was still “questionable”.
“On the morning of July 4, the 2 Vietnamese artists were still out on bail, waiting to see a judge and had a lawyer to handle. The Vietnamese Embassy sent people to the island of Majorca to provide legal help.”
The TV series “Thương ngày nắng về” played by actor Hồng Đăng is still broadcast normally. However, as predicted, his images and scenes were completely cut out. In the episodes, the audience only heard his voice through phone calls with the other characters.
Hồng Đăng’s image in the intro was also removed.
Hồng Đăng and Hồ Hoài Anh – the 2 Vietnamese artists will be severely disciplined when they return to Vietnam.
According to artist Trung Hieu – Director of Hanoi Drama Theater, he has not received Hong Dang’s application for permission to go abroad and the theater does not have any projects in Europe. That means Hong Dang did not go to Spain for work.
