He was the king of Cambodia, not Vietnam.

Indeed he was, but in 1965 he made a pact with the North Vietnamese government to allow the establishment of more or less permanent bases within Cambodian borders, thus drawing his country inexorably into conflict with the United States, and thus paving the way for his inclusion in this series.

Karaoke was the least of it. Sihanouk was a sax playin' fool. A regular Rudy Vallee on that instrument.
