SBTN’s Top Entertainment Report visits Advance Beauty College

Jonathan Phan and Sophie Bao Tran are the hosts of the Top Entertainment Report, a weekly show on the Saigon Broadcasting Television Network (SBTN) hosted in both English and Vietnamese. The show aims to create a bridge between the first and second generations of Vietnamese-Americans, covering a mixture of news and events both cultural and modern that affect the Vietnamese community.

In the bottom two clips, Sophie visits Advance Beauty College for a chat with Porter Lynn and John Ruby, the lead actors for Touch, a film by Minh Duc Nguyen. (You can forward the first clip to 7:12 to watch the segment about the film.) I’ve written a few things on the film, Touch, here and here.

Head instructor of nail education for the school, Nancy Nguyen, shows Sophie the basic steps of filing and nail prep. Advance Beauty College gave the actors who play nail techs in the movie a crash course on dong nails for the movie. In the second clip, John Ruby also tries his hand at speaking Vietnamese.

The Top Entertainment Report airs on SBTN on Fridays at 8:30 AM and 8:30 PM, and on Saturdays at 4:30 AM PST. You can check out past episodes of the Top Entertainment Report on their YouTube channel:
