These days it seems like the Koreas are making headlines for some pretty crazy reasons…
South Korea (well a Korean Air executive actually) made headlines due to a crazy incident before a flight took off due to macadamia nuts.

Yahoo News also reported that South Korean prosecutors will arrest the nutty former Korean Air executive.
Now lets look at the major story related to North Korea which might just be even more bizarre than nuts.
Unless you’ve been totally off the grid, you must have heard about all of the controversy being caused by the movie The Interview starring James Franco and Seth Rogen.
Here is a very brief description of what has transpired due to the film:
The Interview is a comedy about journalists instructed to kill Kim Jong-Un, North Korea’s leader.
North Korea didn’t find the movie’s premise funny. Threats were made against the U.S., the movie’s release was delayed and then cancelled due to a cyber-attack on Sony. After theaters decided against showing the movie due to threats, Sony was left in a bind. What to do with the movie?
President Obama said in a statement that Sony had made a mistake in pulling the film but Sony claimed that it was pulled due to major movie theater chains delaying or cancelling showing the film.
Soon after Sony wasn’t sure what would be of The Interview, rumors spread that it would be released online.
Well today The Interview became available for online viewing!
It can be watched through GooglePlay, YouTube, X-Box Video and at SeeTheInterview.com
You can rent the movie for $5.99 or purchase it for $14.99.
Are you interested in seeing The Interview?
I have to admit that I am curious about the movie but if there wasn’t such crazy news surrounding it, I’m not sure if I would’ve paid it much attention…
