Hoàng Thùy Linh’s Number 1 Vietnamese single, “See Tinh”, spawns copycat dance moves across East and Southeast Asia

See Tinh
Hoàng Thuỳ Linh's "See Tình" has caught the interest of Asian celebrities.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Vietnamese pop star Hoàng Thùy Linh can take comfort with what’s happening in some Asian countries. In South Korea, volleyball star Lee Da-hyeon recently celebrated a point by dancing courtside to Linh’s Number 1 pop song, “See Tinh” (“See Love”).

Below, you can see the video, which went viral on KBSSport’s TikTok account.

Watch two Korean volleyball players groove to “See Tinh”.

Then another South Korean volleyball star, Kim Yeo-koung, copied some of those moves, which were pioneered in Linh’s music video.

They’re not alone.

Last May, Taiwanese superstar Jolin Tsai also mimicked Hoàng Thùy Linh’s fancy dance steps and arm manoeuvres. You can watch Tsai bust her moves in the video below.

For those interested in the real deal, check out Hoàng Thùy Linh’s official music video below.

Meanwhile, other celebrities in South Korea and China have joined in the craze. There’s also a compilation of people doing the dance in the Philippines, including some celebrities.

There are lots of other videos like this on YouTube.

Keep in mind  that anyone famous in the West who attempts this is likely to generate attention in Vietnam, which is home to nearly 100 million people.
