Think the drama regarding North Korea and The Interview is over? Think again! Lee Min-Bok, a North Korean defector and activist, has carried out another round of balloon launches to share copies of The Interview in North Korea.




"I launched thousands of copies and about a million leaflets on Saturday, near the western part of the border," Lee recently told the AFP. Helium balloons carrying anti-Pyongyang propaganda and copies of The Interview were floated from the South Korean side - and it's unknown how many balloons actually reach the other side of the border.


To help make it more difficult for guards on the North Korean side to detect the balloons floating into their country, Lee launched the balloons in remote locations and under the cover of darkness. The police also are aware of his actions and don't move to intervene: "The police would have no right to stop me from doing this. I am always being tailed by police."
