What are you doing? Ladies and gentlemen.
Color Man In Disguise.
2 weeks passed without new episode.
Let's take a Go-Viet ride.
Let me get the jacket upstairs.
Today I won't drive.
If not, how do you take Go-Viet? Ladies and gentlemen.
I have always been the driver.
Today I will book a ride.
Let's see how it goes.
Previously, we got the passengers' stories.
Today we will see what a driver's story is.
Their lives are tough, with many things to tell.
You want to book a ride now? Besides, I forgot my jacket at home.
So I can't drive.
But this is still Color Man In Disguise.
Let's see how it goes.
Use your phone to book a ride for me.
Get me to Crescent Mall.
As you can see, today Modest Cuong has a girlfriend.
They kept asking if Modest Cuong is straight or not.
He has a girlfriend now.
There's a driver.
Book it for me.
It's only 5 pm.
I'm sure Dien Quan staff cannot know.
that I'm making an episode today.
Right? I'll still use Go-Viet to go disguising.
But won't be exposed.
Crescent Mall, OK? Alright.
Crescent Mall, D7.
I'm bored and free today.
I'll go to the cinema alone in Crescent Mall.
Even with a lover, why are you still so gay? No, we just pretend.
How long have you been dating? Hello? I'm Go-Viet, mister.
You called for a ride to Crescent Mall, right? Yes, yes.
I'm at No.
121, Hoang Hoa Tham.
I'm going to arrive in 2 minutes.
How long until you get here? 2 minutes.
I will arrive in 2 minutes.
Please come soon.
Don't let him see.
Normally, we had the front camera, but now you sit in the back.
Just try to find a way.
Go in front of us and zoom in.
We don't know.
Now what? Just improvise.
Are you Cuong? You want to go to Crescent Mall, right? Yes, I do.
Why do you look so familiar? You're Color Man, aren't you? Let me check.
How could you recognize me with these glasses? I often watch your series.
– To Crescent Mall, right?- Yes.
Do you know Crescent Mall in D7.
Yes, I know.
I'm a motor driver.
Let me start the ride.
Today I get to serve a celeb.
What celeb? Do you watch my In-Disguise series? Give me the helmet.
I'm going home now.
I have a personal driver, but I like to use Go-Viet for fun.
Addicted to Go-Viet.
I often watched you driving with Go-Viet.
You did? Yes, I did.
What do you think? Basically, basically, today.
I just took a passenger to Hoang Hoa Tham Market.
Really? Then I got the ride to D7.
My home was in D4.
Ah, D4 is in the same direction of D7.
It's convenient to go to D7.
Then you must know D7's streets well.
It is often jammed at this time.
If I go home by car, I think.
it's nearly 6 pm, so I would've been home at 7:30 pm.
Yeah, a hour or more.
So I dropped it.
I chose Go-Viet to be sure and quick.
Is this your main job? Or.
Is this your main job? Or you do something else and this is part-time? This has been my main job since Go-Viet started.
Really? I've done this since August 1.
August 1 last year? Last year, yes.
On August 1, 2018, Go-Viet appeared.
I registered immediately.
I've done this since then.
Let me tell you, I'm the top of Go-Viet.
Top what? I'm the top of Go-Viet.
I'm the top in HCMC.
The best driver of Go-Viet.
Really? What does “best” mean? Did you drive the most? Or did you make the most money? I took the most rides.
The most rides? That's right.
How do you know? There was a Super Warrior award.
I'm the winner of the Super Warrior Award.
It's a Go-Viet competition for the entire city.
I'm the victor of the list of 5 people.
I got 2 millions in the first week.
It lasted for 3 weeks.
So that competition.
people competed in 3 weeks? The one took the most rides was rewarded 2 millions? In one week.
Their evaluation was based on drivers' rides in that week.
And the efficiency must be above 75%.
Who got the most rides in that week would win.
5 people with the most rides in HCMC would get 2 millions.
I was the prizewinner in that week with 423 rides.
You made 423 rides in a week? That's right.
In a week.
– So on average, you took in a day.
– More than 60 rides.
60 rides? More than 60 rides? That's right.
How did you do that? I worked from 4:30 am to midnight.
4:30 am to midnight? I only went home when the day ends.
In that Super Warrior week, I lived on my bike.
So you only drove that much in the competition? No, I normally drive just like that.
What time do you normally drive? From 4:30-5.
normally I go home at 6-7.
6-7 pm? That's right.
Do you have any passenger at 4-5 am? I drive to the bus stations to pick up passengers.
Stations in District 1, on Pham Ngu Lao, etc.
When they get off, I can wait for them.
Last year, I was in top 10 of Go-Viet.
As the top 10 of the city, I got a Samsung 7.
Their policies seem.
Go-Viet seems to take care of drivers well.
I was unemployed at that time.
Before that, I was a salesman.
Where did you work as a salesman? I was a salesman for a Vietnamese company.
But after one year of working.
the sales pressure was too much.
I couldn't endure it.
So I quit.
At that time, Go-Viet appeared.
They just entered the market.
So I registered to drive.
At that time, Go-Viet rewarded handsomely.
So I drive full-time.
It's been more than one year.
The Industrial 4.
Ah, the Industrial College 4.
Yes, that's right.
Is it also the College of Food Industry? No.
It's not of food.
It's a college of technology only.
It isn't a college of food.
After graduated, you didn't work with technology.
But you became a tech driver? I studied business administration.
So I became a salesman, but it was too much stressful.
I think any job can be stressful.
This is stressful too, isn't it? This allows me to be free and proactive.
I can do it if I like, or rest if not.
More relaxing, right? Nobody can pressure me or anything.
I don't have to take beratings.
In days when I'm tired or want to hand out with friends.
I can rest without asking for permission.
If I drive more, I can make more money.
When you were a salesman, what was your month income? And how much do you earn with this? When I was a salesman, if I reached the goal.
my salary was about 8-9 millions a month.
When I drive full-time for Go-Viet.
I earn 10 millions or more.
It's enough to cover my spending.
My mind is free without too much thinking.
Sometimes I meet interesting passengers.
I can meet and talk with new people.
My mind is more relaxed when driving.
Meet and interact with new people.
So I was allowed to meet you now.
I watched you often and now I meet you.
But you're good for recognizing me.
I know it's you just from the glasses.
Your glasses and your head cannot be.
mistaken with anyone else.
But I think it's fun.
When I started, I had a disciple.
He also drove for Go-Viet.
Then I got an idea to disguise as a motor driver.
It would be fun.
Listening to many stories everyday.
And I tried to film it in secret.
I secretly filmed and uploaded the cute, fun stories.
Today you became a passenger? Do you film it today? What? Do you film it as a passenger? How? How do I film it like this? So you're just a passenger and don't film it? Cannot do it now.
It requires a lot of equipment.
It needs to attach equipment in the back and stuff.
It's hard to do.
But I will think about your suggestion.
I will find a way to film when I use Go-Viet.
Drivers' stories are interesting too, right? Right, everyone has their own stories.
not all motor drivers are uneducated.
Even doctors can do this.
If they don't like other environments.
Some people do this part-time.
They just drive for fun.
There are some.
To experience it.
Some people actually do it part-time.
I heard many people were office workers or official at day.
but their incomes were low so they drove to earn more.
To earn a few more hundreds.
2-300 to a million is better.
A few bucks for café and stuff would be a relief.
In this Saigon, having 3 millions a month is a big relief.
For our children.
I think so.
But I myself never saw that, only heard from people.
I've never heard stories directly from the drivers.
Today I will check it first.
Then I will do it for real later.
Today you're experiencing first, right? Before you film it, right? I'm so lucky today.
But I must find a way to film it.
Yet to think of anything.
Why do you go to Crescent Mall for? Me? I'm bored so I go to the cinema alone.
What about your wife? Why don't you go with her? Just joking.
She was shopping.
Ran out of money so she called me.
She asked me to come urgently.
Must arrive in 30 m.
That was why I didn't use my car.
In the traffic jam, I surely couldn't have arrived in time.
That's for sure.
If not, I would surely be scolded.
Today I constantly had to go on business.
So I left work early to bring her to the cinema.
Promised to meet her at 5 pm.
But my meeting just ended at 5:30.
You're so sweet.
Must flatter her, you know.
Flatter her so she would let me go again.
I would be screwed if she locks me in.
Is your family here or elsewhere? In Saigon or the countryside? I'm Saigonese.
Saigonese? I'm native to Saigon.
You're native and live in D4? How many siblings do you have? I have two younger sisters.
The older one married last year.
She married last September.
The younger one is in Grade 12.
You're in the middle? I'm the oldest, the firstborn.
Ah, is that so? How old are you? Why did your sister marry so soon? I was born first, in 1992.
My sister was in 1993.
My older sister was in 93, and my younger sis was in 2002.
So you're at the age of Monkey? Your sis is a Rooster ? That's right.
My mom is a Rooster too.
Do you have a girlfriend? I.
I used to have a college romance.
It lasted for 6-7 years.
That long? We planned to marry, but.
I was still a poor student then.
My family had an issue.
My parents divorced at that time.
They divorced when I was in the 2nd year of college.
Who do you live with now? Father or mother? I'm living with my mother and sisters.
We rent a house in Binh Thanh.
We've moved to Binh Thanh.
You lived in D4 before.
We lived in D4, but moved to Binh Thanh after the divorce.
Now I've rented a house to live with my mom and sisters.
I must manage all of our spending.
And your sister? You must pay for her studying? No, my mother works too.
She cooks in other families.
I help her to take care of my sister.
Cook what? Like, when people don't have time to cook.
they hire my mother to cook.
Like a home chef? That's right.
But she cooks very well.
Everyone loves her.
They won't accept if she quits.
Talking about my love makes me so sad.
That was just my adolescence.
You were in that relationship for 6-7 years.
It became very deep, didn't it? At that time, I was hopeless and quit school.
Then I worked.
I became a salesman for a company.
I worked part-time too.
At that time, there was no Go-Viet.
I worked part-time as a receptionist for a Karaoke.
I worked too much and didn't have time for my lover.
She dated another one? No, not another one.
Our feelings fade after a long time of separation.
When I wished to go further.
she hesitated and refused.
We gradually cut off.
We cut off.
She wanted you to take care of and spend more time for her, right? She has the same age as me.
We were 23-24 y/o.
At that time.
She needed a lot of care.
And you were still childish.
I was childish and immature at that time.
So was she.
You were just 23.
I'm building my career by doing everything.
Men must prioritize careers.
I wanted to spend time for her, but I didn't have any.
To be more successful than other people, we must.
invest more time than they do.
Nothing is easy.
In order to become the top of Go-Viet, I spent 15-16 hours a day.
There's no other way, right? That's right.
We cannot succeed without sacrificing.
And dating a girl of the same age is difficult.
Same-age relationships rarely last.
It usually takes at least 5-10 years to build our careers.
– Right?- Yes.
But after 10 years, their youthfulness has passed.
When I went working, I thought back about what my girlfriend said.
I didn't understand them before.
But when I became more mature.
I thought back of her words.
I came to realize what she meant.
Before, I didn't understand her more mature thought.
She didn't see from me.
Not something she can depend on.
She didn't see you as a reliable support.
Right? Her viewpoint.
She was your only girlfriend? Yes.
I spent all my time for my first love.
In this ride, it seems everyone recognized you.
They all stared at you.
Maybe they just vaguely know.
They can't recognize me with his helmet.
What's your name? – I'm Tuan.
– Tuan? I'm Dien.
You got Cuong because I didn't have the app.
So I used the app of that boy.
Ah, I see.
I didn't pay attention.
I just see the name Cuong.
I know 121 as I usually drive around that area.
121 is Dien Quan company.
I often got passengers from there, their employees.
And today I got the boss.
My men are fun.
I often do pranks.
I love it.
My employees usually fear that I'm unpleasant.
But if they see me do fun things like driving or YouTube making.
they would see me as a friendly and happy person.
Recently, the clip of Go-Viet's CEO went viral.
– Ah, Ms.
Maybe she parodied my clip.
She thought my clip was fun, so she tried it herself.
Few CEO are like that.
Pranks are fun.
We become more understanding, right? We only understand when we do it.
Yes, to know what difficulties drivers have to face.
To empathize with them.
When we're waiting for a call.
Waiting for call isn't easy.
Right? Sometimes we must wait endlessly.
Sometimes we wait for a hour or two without any call.
There're unseen feelings.
I see that most of your clips were made in the afternoons.
You should make clips in the night, late at night.
Late at night? At that time, there're people with many stories to tell.
Ah, driving late.
Yes, driving late in District 1.
I'm planning to drive late at night too.
Or to take a ride from a Westerner.
Westerners? If you wait at Bui Vien, they will call for you.
Really? Was that a fan recognizing you? What? Was that your fan? They started at you.
I was just lucky.
I simply made it for fun.
But people loved it.
Who can think that a president could make clips on the Internet? This is truly “president pretending”.
It matches the trend of “president pretending”.
And you're a real president who pretends.
It was that trend that inspired me to do.
“president pretends to drive taxi”.
They weren't presidents, but you were.
As I do this, I met many people even poorer than me.
Really? So miserable that I couldn't bear to take their money.
Like how? That time, I served a bricklayer.
He was very old.
He had malaria.
He had malaria for 3 days.
Had no money to go to the hospital.
He kept working without going to the doctor.
In the 4th day, couldn't take it anymore.
It hurt him so much.
So he called for me to go to.
the Hematological hospital.
to check and be treated.
On the way, I asked him questions.
“Did you eat anything yet?” It was at noon.
“Did you have lunch yet?” “No, I have no money for lunch.
” He quit midday so he wasn't paid.
Meanwhile, I bought a lunchbox and was going to use it.
When we arrived, I gave it to him.
And I didn't get his money.
When we're on the street.
we should help people if we can.
Many people are more miserable than me.
There're many things that we cannot understand.
They have to earn their everyday meal.
If they don't work, they have nothing to eat that day.
I could not bear to take their money.
I'm not rich, but I can share as much as I can.
Yes, that's right.
We don't have to do big things.
Sharing small things is enough.
Within our capacity.
We're poor already.
Being a bit poorer.
isn't a big deal.
We can just make more rides to compensate.
It's only worth a cup of coffee or a meal.
You're still young but you're.
Some youngsters cannot think like you.
That's because I've gone through many things.
Incidents in my life.
They force me to grow up.
I must grow up.
I have so many things to take care of.
Do you feel happy with your current life? I'm comfortable.
I don't have to worry about love and stuff.
I don't feel sad anymore.
I must take care of my mother and sisters.
Must take care of my family first.
In the future, I can take care of other things.
If love comes, let it come.
I'm still young anyway.
Marrying in my 30s won't be too late.
We're men, so that's not a problem.
When we are more wealthy, it will be easier.
I think that tech motor taxi is quite.
It's enough for my spending and saving.
Really? Enough for saving? Good.
instead of using 50, 000 to eat, I can just eat with 30, 000.
So I can save a bit.
It would accumulate to millions after a month.
Just like when we use a piggy bank.
If I make 3-400, 000 a day and I eat with 200, 000.
I would have nothing left.
I think a youngster like you is very rare.
Many people want to enjoy without working.
Can I take a photo with you? Or people will ask me why I didn't take a photo of a celeb.
Just stay still on the bike.
Let me wear my glasses first.
They're your trademark.
Hard to recognize me.
Let me take the helmet off.
Let me hold it.
Color Man is without color today.
How much? It's 54, 000.
Is it? Alright.
No change needed.
Thank you very much.
I think I should wait at Dien Quan to see you again.
You often make rides from Dien Quan, right? No, I go wherever passengers require.
I wait at one place.
It's easy to see me.
Drive around it in the afternoon.
and you will see me.
Try your best and soon get your love.
Get a new love.
Thank you very much.
Send my greeting to your mother.
OK, thank you.
