Sharing about his role, Quoc Toan said that the role of Dang Tran Con brought him many challenges.

`First is the time gap. The setting and story were 300 years ago, at that time there were no cameras or modern equipment, so the remaining documents were only on Google and books.

I also went to all the bookstores in Hanoi but could hardly find anywhere that sold poetry and documents about Mr. Dang Tran Con. The documents were only available at the Han Nom Institute.

I also went to his grave many times to feel, clean and enjoy the atmosphere there, a very peaceful, cool space in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, just like his old age personality.

Then when it comes to learning letters, I have also practiced writing for a long time and practice writing every day to create a habit,` Quoc Toan said

The actor added that before this role, he was very fond of sports and practiced regularly to act in action movies, but when he played the role of a poet and mandarin, Quoc Toan stopped all activities for a while.

`I lost 5 kg for one scene, which was the ending scene of the movie. That day, I lost weight rapidly, causing my body to always be in a state of shaking hands and pale, pale face. In return, it was more effective.

After the screening, the film crew and Quoc Toan’s role received positive effects from the audience.

Those comments brought great motivation to Toan.
