Banned Thai Soap Opera

There are two topics that should never be “touched” in Thai mainstream media: politic and explicit sexual content. I woke up this morning and all my Thai friends were talking about this new soap opera in Thailand which was taken off the air because of its political message. Life is short, people; shouldn’t you let the Thai people see something “challenging” for once?

Here is what was written on the topic in Bangkok Post.
