Khmer-Thai Relations: The Good Old Days

I bumped into this pictures by chance at Monkgol's blog. I thought it is wonderful that Mongkol has dug out these historical artistic relations between the Cambodian and Thai people. I do hope that the Preah Vihear and border issues can be resolved amicably to the satisfaction of both the Khmer and Thai people so that trusts and mutual understandings can be rebuilt - Khmerization


Cambodian stars Dy Saveth and Chea Yuthorn as seen in a Thai magazine from the early 1970’s. The two were in Thailand to promote a movie called “ស្នេហ៍ឆ្លងវេហា” or “รักข้ามขอบฟ้า,” which was jointly produced by Cambodia and Thailand.

The Khmer and Thai versions of the movie’s soundtrack were sung by Sin Sisamuth and Dy Saveth. Until these days, it remains an everlasting hit greatly loved by people from both countries. Hmmm! Good old days!
