She was asked by the director to have a scene lying in the riverbed to portray the character’s sadness. The crew filmed many times because they were not satisfied with the scene. She said: “When filming, I had to repeat the three words ‘hot spring’ in my head over and over to forget the cold.”
Composed by Phung Khanh Linh Just sad today in a sleepless night because of homesickness. The singer based on that line of emotions, writing the lyrics: “Call me when you feel pain / Just want to go home quickly / I don’t know how to watch every street light up …”. The sound of the song is similar to Today I’m sad – another of her hits. The singer said that in the new song, the girl has become more mature, reminding herself to overcome difficulties after many storms.
