Korean Joongang Daily: Did Sony Steal a Korean American’s Song for “The Interview”?

Yoon Mi-rae A Korean American rapper and R&B singer is accusing Sony Pictures of stealing her song for the movie The Interview, reports the Korean Joongang Daily.

Yoon Mi-rae had received an offer for her song Pay Day from Sony, but turned it down, according to Fortune Entertainment which promotes Yoon.

Lee Jin-young of Fortune Entertainment said the singer initially received an offer from Sony Pictures about using “Pay Day” in the film.

“She turned the offer down because she is a South Korean singer and the film deals with a touchy issue,” said Lee.

Yoon has delayed the release of a new mini-album that had been scheduled to be released this month while she deals with this matter with Sony.

Copyright issues have been plaguing the k-Pop industry of late. You can read more about that in Korean Joongang Daily.
