Ho Chi Minh City, October 5 (EFE). The Vietnamese authorities demanded that Netflix withdraw the South Korean series “The Sisters” (Little Women) from the country, considering that its content distorts the history of the Vietnam War.

The director of the Radio, Television and Electronic Information Department, Lu Quang Tu Do, told the official Tui Tri (Youth) newspaper that the multinational entertainment company has until next Wednesday to approve the withdrawal request.

The Vietnamese official specifies that a dialogue from the third act, which lasts about 21 seconds, and another from the eighth act, which lasts 80 seconds, violates an article in the press law that refers to the prohibition of distorting history and denying the success and achievements of the revolution.

Tu Do said his department sent the request to Netflix on Monday and the platform responded that it was processing the request.

The South Korean series, which premiered last month, was inspired by the story of Luisa May Alcott’s novel ‘Little Women’ published in 1868 and which took the sisters’ female protagonists to present-day South Korea.

In March this year, Vietnam banned “Uncharted” starring Tom Holland, due to a scene showing a map of the South China Sea with a dotted U-shaped line representing Beijing’s claims.

This isn’t the first time this conflict has caused a film to be censored in Vietnam: In 2019, Vietnamese authorities pulled the Dreamworks animated film “Abominable” from theaters to include a U-shaped map. EFE
