PHNOM PENH: Prime Minister Hun Sen has stated that the story told in the new tv series, ‘Son Under the Full Moon’, along with some other stories he has shared from his life in books, are all true and represent the journey of the Cambodian nation.
Speaking at the premiere of the new TV series, ‘Son Under the Full Moon’, on Monday afternoon, 13 March 2023, Prime Minister Hun Sen said that the show does not just tell his individual story, but also more broadly depicts the progress of the nation, the many struggles and pains the people of the nation went through, and the path that led to the peace of today.
"My character is connected to the life of the Khmer nation, one of the millions of young people who suffered from the war due to the wrong thinking of the politicians who staged a coup to overthrow Prince Norodom Sihanouk," he said.
