The name “Vietnamese” was chosen as the name for a group of Vietnamese girls in a TV series, “Girl Names,” on VOA’s Vietnamese language service, according to VOA News.
“The name is based on the Vietnamese name for girl, the word ‘Dinette,'” said VOA correspondent Jan Dutts.
“Vocabulary and the names themselves, they are all very close to the Vietnamese word for girl.
So we wanted to name them Vietnamese Girls.”
The show’s creators and director, Aida Rachleff, told VOA she was inspired by the country’s history and culture.
“In Vietnam, we have a very rich history of giving girls the opportunity to pursue their dreams,” Rachled said.
“When I was growing up, the most important thing to girls was to find a good boyfriend, marry a good man, make the best of life.”
“The girls who were chosen to be the VHG team were not only from Vietnam but also from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar and Cambodia,” she said.
The show follows a group called the “Hangul Girl Team” who are the only Vietnamese girls who are chosen to represent the country on the TV show.
“This team is so special,” Racha told VOCALOID.
“They are the first Vietnamese girls chosen to appear on TV.
The girls are chosen because of their incredible work ethic, determination and love for their country,” she continued.
“If you look at all the women who have made it to the top of the ladder, they were not chosen because they are Vietnamese.
They were chosen because their work ethic was second to none.”
In the show, the girls are shown to be in the best shape they’ve ever been in and work hard at everything they do to become the best in their field.
“I think there are many Vietnamese girls that don’t even know that there is such a name for Vietnamese girls, and they’re not afraid to show it,” Ratcha said.
