The work adapted from “Southern Land” is expected by the audience.
Aired in 1997, “Southern Land” is considered a “national film” associated with the childhood of a large audience. After 25 years, the work was adapted by director Nguyen Quang Dung to the big screen, attracting the attention of many people. Recently, the film crew has revealed the cast list.
Tran Thanh received mixed opinions when playing the role of Uncle Ba Phi
Notably, Tran Thanh will play Uncle Ba Phi, which was successfully performed by artist Mac Can in the previous film. Uncle Ba Phi is a river people with a gift for telling funny stories. Upon hearing this information, many viewers were quite surprised.

Mac Can’s big shadow is also something Tran Thanh needs to overcome.
Besides Uncle Ba Phi (Tran Thanh), the two child actors who performed An and Co also received attention.

Both the TV and movie versions are adapted from the novel of the same name by writer Doan Gioi, telling about the adventurous life of An. From a sincere and innocent boy determined to leave home to find his father, An grew up when he met the generous Southern people and experienced many dangerous moments that almost died. In the old version, An is a role associated with the name Hung Thuan, helping him to become a star. Because he could not overcome the “shadow” of the character, the actor temporarily left the entertainment industry and switched to the real estate business.
Hao Khang will be An in the new version. At the time of the casting crew, Hao Khang once shared on his personal page a picture of a letter congratulating the boy on successfully passing the role of Co. However, later, Hao Khang was transferred to An.

I miss An very stunted”, “Hope she acts brilliantly, recreates An successfully”…

Not long ago, in a conversation with us, actress Kieu Trinh revealed her son’s fate: “The project “Southern Forest Land” I remember stopped 6-7 years ago, then after that just restarted. While the film crew was recruiting actors, Phong went back to his hometown to study. I remember the last day was 7/2. When I accidentally asked the girl in charge of casting, she said she was still looking for two main roles. I just sent information about Ky Phong, but I didn’t think much. Until the day the company officially announced the baby was chosen, my happiness suddenly broke out.”
The actress affirmed that because she was used to acting, Ky Phong was very loose, comfortable, and not pressured by anything. Before the film crew started filming, the child actors returned to Kieu Trinh’s hometown to experience the river life to get acquainted first. “I trained the children to go to the fields, ride buffaloes, harvest rice…”, Kieu Trinh said.
