'Drunk Teacher' song banned

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I understand that a alcohol- and drug-abusing teacher is a serious problem, but I think you could laugh a little to the matter by writing a song. People's sense of humour is kinda strict nowadays.

It should be a song about the Korean public school system. After a night of drunken debauchery consuming soju and 21-year-old scotch and Coke with the 'juicy girls' in a room salon, it's not unusual to see Mr. Kim 'blowing chunks' (kimchie, rice & fish) into the wastebasket by his desk. However, there is a berry juice/ginseng hangover 'tonic' that, when you read the label on the back, is 18% alcohol by volume.
You could be next.

Ministry bans playing of music video
April 2, 2018
The Minister of Information has advised all owners of television stations to stop broadcasting the song “Rom Skob” – which means “pause dance” in English – because it uses the Calmette Hospital logo in several scenes of its music video without permission.

In a letter dated March 30, Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said that performers in the video, produced by Sunday Production, can be seen wearing uniforms bearing the logo of Calmette Hospital without the hospital’s permission, affecting the honour and dignity of Calmette Hospital employees.

In December, the Information Ministry banned owners of all radio and TV stations from broadcasting the song “Kru Bongrean Sroverng Sra”, which translates to drunken teacher in English, claiming it dishonoured and insulted teachers.
