Girl on the right is prettier and speaks better than girl on the left. I don't understand the speaking style that's too fast and with a lisp like girl on the left. Not projecting confidence.

I was ok until they get to the part about how to behave. I think tying the panels is kinda edgy and acting masculine is actually kinda charming.

And this is for school girls? Who wears high heels to school. Geeeeze!

I think they are on par with one another in terms of beauty.  They were both ao dai beauty queens.  Actually I think the short one is more charming.

Tying the panels looks kind of bad azz (2:30) for a girl.  It's charming for a pretty girl.  But I don't think I would want to look at a butchy girl.

there's a difference between being an assertive strong girl vs. a "butch" girl. The way I was brought up where you're supposed to act ultra feminine really turn me off to the ultra Confucian feminine girl such as always acting "thuy my" very coquettish.  I'm by no means a butch girl but I'm not the pretentious deferential type either.

Many times I see young girls being yelled at for acting like a boy and it's just wrong. Little girls can run around, be athletic, etc...I think it's actually cute.

I don't think Vietnamese pay that much attention to that Confucian ideals regarding women.  What I've heard is that they are trying to promote gender equality in schools and businesses.  Everything that's being taught to boys would apply to girls as well.  Girls would participate in sports and events.  That's why they don't require wearing ao dai, only for special occasions.

Of course you have a really feminine girl, but I think that's their own doing, trying to get favors for being a girl or something.
