Impressive score for a love project
As a movie that exploits a love romance web novel, but the Lighter and Princess Dress do not fall into a simple romantic relationship. The film highlights the passion of youth, very realistic character types and especially a strong, unique and progressive female lead.
Thanks to that, the Princess Dress and Lighter opened with 7.2 points with 11,000 reviews on Douban, higher than many other “hugely invested” projects this year. After that, the number of positive 4-5 star reviews of the film continued to increase, currently accounting for more than 56% of more than 82,000 votes. Thanks to a score of 7, Lighter And Princess Dress has separated itself from many films of the same genre to set foot on the list of movies with the highest scores on Chinese screens in 2022.
The main couple became stars after a long time of “diving”
Surely the people who “benefited” the most from the Lighter and Princess Dress are Tran Phi Vu and Truong Tinh Nghi. The previous two young actors had a long time struggling to find a foothold and create a reputation for themselves.
With Tran Phi Vu, even though he has the title of “prince” whose father is Tran Khai Ca, the actor has been in a situation of “lack of work” for 2 years. His film Hao Y Hanh was facing the risk of not being able to air forever, although it was once predicted that the work would bring the name Tran Phi Vu famous. Now with the role of Ly Tuan, Tran Phi Vu has owned 1 million new fans on Weibo account, in addition to having an extremely high index topping the charts big and small.
As for Truong Tinh Nghi, the role of Chu Yun really changed the whole career of this girl born in 1999. Earlier this year, she acted in the movie Nhat Kien Khuyen Tam but was unsuccessful and was also negatively evaluated for her lackluster acting. Initially when participating in Lighter and Princess Dress, very few people thought she could make a difference and be forgotten compared to Tran Phi Vu. But now that the film has aired, Truong Tinh Nghi has been widely loved, rising to become one of the outstanding female leads, possessing the most excellent character depth this year.
Create a whole trend in Vietnam
Since its release on Youku, Lighter And Princess Dress has become a craze in Vietnam. Not only was the film-loving audience well received, but some details in the film also became a trend, causing a fever on social networks. The most prominent is the detail of creating hearts with code – an exercise in the character’s programming class. While everyone was doing a static heart, Ly Tuan created a lively, sparkling heart.
Soon after, this trend was followed by many IT majors and shared widely online. The videos posted by viewers on TikTok are diverse, but they all become the subject of discussion and receive high views. In addition, other elements such as “Ly Tuan mixed mine” or the challenge of skillfully turning lighters were also well received by the audience thanks to the film.
