Behind the melancholy pen dance scene in historical films is a series of humorous behind-the-scenes that make the audience laugh.
In The Tale of Kieu, in the midst of a charming scene, Trieu Le Dinh is showing a calligraphic display full of seriousness and concentration. However, the behind-the-scenes product she creates is not as ethereal as what the audience sees.
Lady Chu Kieu was just pretending to be serious and wrote on a piece of paper a sentence that cursed people for being “a bastard”. The audience also had to give up because of this “deep acting”.
Playing the role of Vu Van Nguyet in The Tale of Kieu, Lam Canh Tan also has many scenes of writing. The guy shows a very standard posture of holding a brush, a serious sitting posture. But Nguyet Gongzi is not writing poetry, but… drawing turtles, and not forgetting to sign the work.
In the scene where Vu Van Nguyet writes a letter to the emperor, the guy writes real words, but the content is very serious. In fact, Lam Canh Tan is writing a letter with creative content: “Hello, Dad, recently a fat guy keeps bullying you, you quickly send 100,000 troops to help, my dear.”
In the Legend of Vu Lac (2013), Lam Canh Tan plays the role of Prince Thu Nanda. In the prison scene, when he was forced to write a letter, he acted while “slashing” on paper: “This world belongs to me! Hahaha! I live in prison for a while, don’t expect to miss it. Love you – Da”.
Playing the role of Trieu Ngoc Can in General at the top (2017), Thinh Nhat Luan is a character who is both handsome and talented. Especially in his “miracle pen dances”.
However, in contrast to the image of a handsome man swinging his pen into poetry in the film, Thinh Nhat Luan’s real work is a painting of chickens. The fan commented humorously: “Worse than a preschooler’s picture”.
Actor La Van Hy in Huong Mat Tuoi Khoi Suong also surprised the audience when he learned that he could write calligraphy on the film. As a talented and perfect man, the handsome man born in 1988 made viewers admire his beautiful ancient writing skills.
In Huong Mat Like Smoke and Mist, the scene where Duong Tu plays Cam Mi because he misses Huc Phuong (played by Dang Luan) while crying while painting is very touching.
And the fact that Duong Tu’s painting of Dang Luan made the audience laugh. Indeed, being an actor is not easy.
In Tran Tinh Lenh, Vuong Nhat Bac plays Lam Vong Co, an elite and serious person. This text scene is when Lan WangJi was assigned the task of monitoring Wei WuXian who was being punished.
In fact, in the backstage when Tieu Chien was passionately acting, Vuong Nhat Bac sat silently… writing scribbles, the handwriting like chickens is different from the image in the movie.
In addition to the “extravagant” Chinese-language pen dance stars in the background, there are also actors who write real words, without the need for a stunt pen dance scene. For example, veteran actor Ly Tuyet Kien in Thuy Hu showed his writing skills and was praised by the audience.
Dich Duong Thien Ty played Khuat Nguyen in his youth in Tu Beauty. The actor performed the scene of writing words on bamboo cards skillfully, very old-fashioned amateur look. Translated by Duong Thien Ty, who has practiced writing since childhood, she is famous for her calligraphy skills. Therefore, the pen dance scenes did not make it difficult for the actor born in 2000.
