Winter Sun is a new Vietnamese TV series that aired its first episodes. After the first developments, the film is highly appreciated for its creative and new script. However, all three main actors caused controversy. If Quynh Luong and Trinh My Duyen performed relatively well but were “harmed” by the voice acting, the male lead Steven Nguyen was criticized for his acting.

In the early developments of the film, Steven Nguyen takes on two roles, when he is an honest and spontaneous Minh Huy, and when he is a young president, Minh Hoang is scheming and cold. After Minh Hoang was murdered, Minh Huy regained his memory, he decided to live in the identity of his brother to investigate the enemy who wanted to kill him.

During the period when the character Minh Hoang was still alive, Steven Nguyen’s performance made the film receive many controversial comments. Many viewers think that Steven is not suitable for the role of Minh Hoang, especially the face does not exude the spirit of a president. Others did not appreciate the actor’s performance. In addition, this character also made the audience “hate with bitterness” when he had an affair with his wife’s best friend and also treated family members like outsiders.

Steven Nguyen is a well-trained young actor in acting skills. Before the Winter Sun, he never caused controversy about his ability. Therefore, many viewers are also quite surprised by the negative comments about him. Hopefully at a later stage, when Steven plays a Minh Huy disguised as Minh Hoang, his performance will be more comfortable and easier to watch.
