HCM CITY — Vietnamese artists are working on new web dramas that will bring heart-warming laughter to audiences during the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday which falls on January 22 this year.
Thu Trang, one of the most famous female film directors in the country, will release the sixth part of her famous web drama during Tết called Tết Đến Rồi Về Nhà Thôi (Tết is Coming! Let’s Go Home) on January 7 on YouTube.
The 45-minute work portrays Tết preparation and celebration in a family in the countryside, highlighting love and forgiveness among family members in the most special season of the year.
The film features famous comic actors such as Thu Trang, Tiến Luật, and Phi Phụng, and cải lương (reformed opera) actress Thanh Hằng.
Trang told local media that, “I love the warm atmosphere of people in a family gathering together to welcome a New Year.”
She added that she began to produce Tết Đến Rồi Về Nhà Thôi five years ago with the desire to bring joy to audiences during the holiday.
The first five parts of the series have attracted more than 36.5 million views on the YouTube channel Thu Trang Official.
YouTube user Ngọc Vân commented, “I’ve waited for Tết Đến Rồi Về Nhà Thôi every year. I’ve been watching the series the whole time.”
Trang became popular after playing a leading role in a family drama called Nắng (Little Sunshine) and its sequel Nắng 2 (Little Sunshine 2) in 2017, focusing on motherhood.
In 2018, she released her first film production, a three-episode web drama Thập Tam Muội (Young Sister 13), which was later adapted into a feature film titled Chị Mười Ba (Sister Thirteen).
Her movies Chị Mười Ba: Phần kết Thập Tam Muội (Sister Thirteen: The New Chapter) and Chị Mười Ba: Ba Ngày Sinh Tử (Sister Thirteen: Three Deadly Days) earned VNĐ62 billion (US$2.67 million) and VNĐ108 billion ($4.76 million), respectively.
