Korean R&B artist Yoon Mi-Rae's management agency, Feel Ghood Music, announced Friday that it would take legal action against Sony for allegedly using one of her songs in The Interview without permission. The agency said it only realized that the movie used Yoon's song "Pay Day," which also features her husband and hip-hop star Tiger JK, after it was released. "We initially received an offer to insert the song, but discussions were on hiatus on some points," said the agency. "Sony Pictures Entertainment used the music without due procedure or contract."

The scene, which features the part of the song that demands that listeners "scream louder!," can be seen here:

Indeed, we're sure Sony is screaming a lot these days.
