Actress Phuong Oanh and tech entrepreneur Nguyen Hoa Binh will hold a traditional engagement ceremony this month.

Oanh, 34, confirmed the news with NgoiSao and said she planned to have a private and intimate engagement ceremony at her hometown in the northern province of Ha Nam.

The ceremony will also be an occasion for the two extended families to officially meet and get to know each other. She said they had no plans for a wedding party in Hanoi.

The actress said she wanted to prioritize her family life after marriage, though she would not be a full-time housewife. She would return to the screen if she found a suitable project, aiming to maintain her acting career in parallel with her fashion and real estate businesses.

She said she had been busy over the past month preparing her engagement ceremony and her fashion collection at the same time, but felt happy and supported by her and Binh’s family.

The couple have returned from a family holiday in Thailand. After more than a week traveling together, they have both gotten more familiar with their in-laws and feel ready for married life.

Oanh admitted to dating Binh, 43, last August, after photos of the couple circulated on social media.

Oanh’s future mother-in-law said her family had always been welcoming to Oanh since the first time Binh brought Oanh to her family and introduced Oanh as his girlfriend.

She said it was her and her husband that urged Binh and Oanh to tie the knot after seeing how genuine Oanh was and how she took good care of Binh.

Oanh is a renowned actress and has starred in several TV series. In 2018, she was nominated for the Vietnamese Golden Kite Award for Best Actress, one of the most prestigious acting awards in the country.

Binh is the founder of various tech startups, including Nexttech Group of Technopreneurs, which has been dubbed the "Alibaba of Vietnam" by the Chinese media. He joined Shark Tank Vietnam as one of the showcased investors in 2019.
