Two Vietnamese models, one of them just 12, are generating a lot of online buzz in China and South Korea for their voluptuous bodies.
Famous at home for her busty looks, 23-year-old Elly Tran was born in Ho Chi Minh City to a Vietnamese father and Chinese mother. Last year she did a photo shoot for sports magazine Sports Korea, posing in underwear and showing a lot of skin.
“She looks so sexy,” commented a Chinese on newswire Sohu which carried a photo of Elly in a milk white bikini.
“Her face is so cute,” wrote another.
The Chinese online community seems to love her and last year voted her as the second sexiest girl in China.
In China, Elly has signed a contract with a big online gaming company to endorse one of its games. She has also been invited to act in a Thai film.
For the moment, however, she is busy shooting for Vietnam’s first 3D movie, “Bong Ma Hoc Duong” (School Ghosts).
But it is not as if she is universally admired.
Vietnamese newswire 24h described her as “lazy in working and thinking and just looking for fame.”
“There is nothing beautiful or elegant about showing one’s breasts for others to see and take photos,” it said scathingly.
Le Hoang Bao Tran, 12, who not only appears in teen magazines but also in many Vietnamese newspapers and fashion journals, has also become an internet sensation.
China’s ezinemark newswire described her as having a “mature, charming body,” “stunning beauty,” and an “angelic face.”

Tran won the Teen Model pageant last year and has been a professional model since.
Probably the youngest model in Vietnam, Tran, who is slightly taller than Elly at 1.72m, is also very popular in China.
On Chinese websites and forums like 163, members write to seek more information about her.
Chinasmack describes Tran as a “professional model” and being “popular on the internet.”
“Her sweet looks and innocent smiles have won the hearts of countless surfers.”
One such netizen wrote: “Look, this bosom, these legs, this waist, this butt, is she really 12-years-old? I can’t help myself, makes me want to commit a crime.”
“This is clearly more like 20 years old. Too frightening… A 12-year-old should be more innocent,” another said.
“If this girl is really only 12 years old, under Chinese law she cannot be a professional model,” a third commented.
“Not letting her go to school is extremely inhumane.”
Tran goes to Dai Doan Ket Secondary School in HCMC.
