The concert, titled “My Tam, First Love”, was held at the Jangchung Gymnasium in central Seoul. It was an important landmark in her career, because holding a concert in a foreign country meant meeting regional coverage requirements and having the financial resources to organize it.

Besides Vietnamese fans living in South Korea, many fans flew from Vietnam to attend her concert, attesting to her popularity. Tickets were sold out few days ahead of the concert.

She also performed songs from her latest album, Tam 9. The album, with South Korean producer Cho Sung Jin participating in its production, was released last December. It sold over 10,000 records in the first week and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard World Album chart, making her the first Vietnamese artist to gain that distinction.
