Vân told the media that the way her short films were welcomed by audiences motivated her to make 4 Năm, 2 Chàng, Một Tình Yêu.”
The movie tells the story of two best friends, Tuấn and Thành, who have feelings for Quỳnh. Unfortunately, Quỳnh only realizes her love for Tuấn after he dies in an accident.
Four years after Tuấn’s death, Quỳnh and Thành, colleagues moving towards a relationship, meet a man who looks like Tuấn. Another love triangle is triggered.
Actress Midu, whose real name is Đặng Thị Mỹ Dung, plays Quỳnh.

The 27-year-old became popular among her peers after she won a beauty contest for teenagers in 2007.
Midu has played both major and minor roles in dozens of feature films including Thiên Mệnh Anh Hùng (Blood Letter) by Vietnamese-American director Victor Vũ and Mùa Hè Lạnh (Cold Summer) by Ngô Quang Hải.
Tuấn is played by Harry Lu, a Taiwanese born in Việt Nam. Lu earlier played the main role in director Nguyễn Quang Huy’s Thần Tượng (Idol), which won the 2014 Golden Kite award for Best Feature Film.-- VNS
