North Korea Reacts to Hollywood Movie THE INTERVIEW

Share it Please
Hollywood takes aim at the North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un in their upcoming movie The Interview. The movie, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, tells a story of two journalists who later turned into assassins by the CIA as they land an interview with the leader of North Korea Kim Jong-Un in Pyongyang.



The assassination bid in this comedy movie has apparently offended the leaders of North Korea. An envoy from North Korea named Ja-Song Nam filed a protest to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon (which happens to be a citizen of South Korea) requesting to ban the movie, failure to do so may encourage and sponsor terrorism. North Korea further warned that if the movie will not be pulled off from the distribution, they will give a merciless response.

This is not the first time that Hollywood mock a North Korean Leader in a movie. In 2004, the movie Team America scornfully mimicked the late Kim Jong-II.

All eyes are on the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon now. As an addressee of the said letter of appeal from North Korea, how would he react on this situation considering the fact that North Korea and South Korea are not in good terms? But I guess he would be professional in handling this situation, the United Nations is supposed to stand on neutral ground anyway.

Also, the attention goes out to the producers of the movie. Will they pull off the distribution of the movie or treat the letter from North Korea as an empty threat?

Or is it too early for North Korea and for us to judge the movie based solely on the trailer?

The movie is supposed to be released on October 14, 2014. Watch the trailer of the movie THE INTERVIEW and see if it is somehow offensive.

  1. That's a political stance of North Korea and we'll leave them for what they're insinuating into. there's no harm, just a movie.

  4. I've seen the trailer once and I think there's more to the movie than just that. Banning the film is just ridiculous.

  5. Prerogative nga Nokor government yan. And they too must adhere to what decision the UN body will come up.

  6. And because of this controversy, I'm sure this would be a hit because it has already caught public attention.

  9. if one person/country is being praised too much in a movie, they'll be the proudest man on earth but if it's the opposite they'll do anything to put it down.hehe can't blame it, if it happens in the Philippines, obviously we'll do the same.

  10. The request for banning would just create further interest in the movie. It will be interesting to know how UN will address the letter of appeal.

  12. I just hope someone from the movie's management sent North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un a letter and a full movie for him to watch because im pretty there's more to it than what's on the trailer. Sad.
