The music video Khong The Cung Nhau Suot Kiep (We Can’t Be Together Eternally) by singer Hoa Minzy has wowed viewers thanks to its accurate depiction of the wedding ceremony of Emperor Bao Dai and Empress Nam Phuong, the last royal family of Viet Nam.

The history-inspired video has garnered more than 21 million views on YouTube since its May 13 release and is currently third on the YouTube trending list for the country.

An Dinh Palace where Empress Nam Phuong lived is reappeared in the music video of singer Hoa Minzy.

Minzy played the role of Empress Nam Phuong, the last empress of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802–1945). Through the song written by Mr Siro and the video directed by Kawaii Tuan Anh, she told the sorrowful story of the empress.

On the wedding day, she was given a golden tiara and the title 'Her Imperial Majesty'. Bao Dai promised to have only one wife and would be faithful to her till the end of life, which was unusual at the time as like in other Asian countries, kings of Vietnam had many wives and concubines.

Nam Phuong lived in happiness and glory initially, but Bao Dai didn’t keep his promise. He married several other women during the time serving as 'supreme advisor' in Hanoi and living abroad. The Empress lived in loneliness in An Dinh Palace in Hue, the former capital.

Minzy said it took two years to carry out the project as she and the crew wanted to recreate the historical events truthfully and emotionally.

The crew of 200 members finished shooting and producing the video in six months. Many beautiful scenes of Hue city are shown such as the Royal Citadel, An Dinh Palace and Huong River. In addition, nha nhac (royal music) and ho Hue (the folk singing of Hue) are used in some parts of the video.

Explaining the inspiration of the video, Minzy said she didn't want to create a product for entertainment only, but something educational.

The royal costumes were designed and made by Y Van Hien Company. The wedding ceremony with rituals, costumes and music was totally based on historical documents.
