The German-Thai Ploychompoo also has a single this year, called "Too Late", and a movie, "Pee Nak", whereas Malaysia's Instagram darling Lin Min Chen most recently appeared in "A Journey of Happiness".
Three other Malaysian acts, namely Youtuber turned professional Priscilla Abby, young heart-throb singer songwriter As'ad Motawh and rock band Bunkface, round up the list of performers.
