The latest Sony controversy doesn’t involve the leak of information, it involves The Interview itself…
Yoon MiRae is a rapper and singer who has achieved much success in the Korean industry. MiRae was born in Texas, but has performed in South Korea since the mid-1990s. She is currently a member of the Korean hip-hop group Drunken Tiger.
MiRae’s label Feel Ghood Music says that a remix of her song “Pay Day” was used in The Interview without permission.
The label says they were in talks with Sony over the use of the song, but no agreement was made.
Feel Ghood also says they didn’t find out that Sony used the song until the movie came out. The song is used in a scene where James Franco and “Kim Jong-Un” party in a bar with Korean women dressed in lingerie.
Feel Ghood Music says they will take legal action against Sony.
