South Koreans Applaud Sony’s Release of ‘The Interview’

Kyung Lah reports that people in South Korea believe releasing “The Interview” is a good way to deal with North Korea.

Sony Pictures has cleared the way for a limited release of the film “The Interview” on Christmas Day, less than a week after pulling the comedy’s planned premiere following a cyber-attack on the company.

The comedy about a fictional plot to assassinate North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un led to a cyber-attack on Sony, which the US government has blamed on North Korea. Pyongyang has denied the accusation.

Sony’s cancellation of the movie following threats from hackers drew widespread criticism, including from President Barack Obama.
