By: II stix

Safe for Work? Yes

To listen to much of the Western media and The Interview’s supporters, you would think that North Korea hacked Sony Pictures out of outrage over The Interview’s depiction of Kim Jong Un’s assassination — or that North Korea didn’t actually launch the attack at all.

By: II stix

Safe for Work? Yes

I sip my latte and stifle a chuckle as I take in my surroundings at Ddoong Cafe in the Ssamzigil shopping complex in central Seoul.
