In 2016, Hoang Linh received an invitation to be a host at the Japan Festival in Da Nang. He didn't expect this to be the place where he met the woman of his life. At that time, Shiho Rainbow was the representative singer from Yokohama to perform at the festival. At the end of the ceremony, the Vietnamese man took the initiative to ask for her phone number.
In September 2016, Hoang Linh decided to go to Japan to live and do some art activities. During the process of joint art activities in Japan, Shiho Rainbow has always enthusiastically helped Hoang Linh in life and work. Since then, in events of the Embassy of Vietnam in Japan, Vietnamese people in Japan, Vietnam Festival, Hoang Linh and Shiho Rainbow have always accompanied each other and performed Vietnamese, Japanese songs together.

Hoang Linh also supports Shiho Rainbow to organize a periodical festival "Gathering Waste with Music", a combination of musical performances and with viewers scavenging to clean the streets at the performance areas.
Also since becoming a confidant with Hoang Linh, the love for the country, culture and people of Vietnam, Japanese girl Shiho is more special than ever, becoming a Japanese singer attached to the Vietnamese community in Japan. During a performance at a Vietnamese festival event in Japan, Shiho fell in love with the national martial art - VIVONAM. After that, she trained and became a VIVONAM fighter in Japan, winning a Gold medal at the 2017 East Asian Games and a Bronze Medal at the 2019 World Championships.

Here, Shiho Rainbow will continue to sing at her online livestream platforms, and Hoang Linh will start a new project of teaching Japanese-Vietnamese-English languages online.
Hoang Linh also planned to teach Vietnamese to his wife. Although Shiho has been to Vietnam many times to perform and attend events, all of them are short, so this is the first time Shiho has officially lived in Vietnam.
