Experts cast doubts on plan to send DVDs of The Interview to North

Observers think comedy may offend North Koreans, confirm propaganda about outside world

Experts have mixed view of human rights activists’ plan to send out DVDs of a The Interview to North Korea should Pyongyang not cooperate with the South Korean government's proposal for dialogue.

Fighters for a Free North Korea, a defector-activist group well known for sending balloons carrying regime-bashing leaflets into the North, announced during a press conference on Tuesday that it will send the DVDs of the film depicting Kim Jong Un’s assassination should North Korea reject the Seoul’s proposals.
