According to fllm director Tran Thanh Huy, the movie Rom's premiere event for the press on July 29 and its public release on July 31 have been cancelled.

The film has been through many challenges, Huy said, adding that COVID-19 posed another threat for the success of the movie.

The organisers of the drama Giac mo cua me have cancelled their casting event in HCM City that was scheduled between July 28 and 30. The drama is directed by Nguyen Phuong Dien, who is famous for many movies such as Tieng set trong mua, and Ca Ro, em yeu anh and Du gio co thoi, among others.

A music event in Da Nang, set to take place on July 31, has also been cancelled, while singer Son Tung M-TP’s first staging of his latest song Co chac day la yeu will be broadcast via livestreaming.

Designer Chung Thanh Phong has delayed his Dear My Princess fashion show, which was supposed to take place during the ELLE Wedding Art Gallery 2020 event on August 1 in HCM City.

“Even though everything was prepared, we felt the need to postpone this show in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among all guests, models, clients and colleagues,” Phong said.

Other designers such as Le Ngoc Lam, Pham Dang Anh Thu, Thuy Nguyen, Linh Nga and Truong Thanh Hai shared the same sentiment.

“To live in the unfortunate time of COVID-19 is to always prepare for the worst scenarios,” designer Thuy Nguyen said. “My colleagues and I will need to change or create new perspectives, production and promotion of our products.”

Many artists who recently returned from Da Nang such as Kaity Nguyen, Thuy Dung and Cara Phuong have had to self-quarantine at home for the next 14 days.
