South Korea’s most famous singer, PSY, released his eighth album two weeks ago. PSY became a global phenomenon with his 2012 music video “Gangnam Style” with his horse-riding dance move. “Gangnam Style” is approaching 3 billion views on YouTube.
PSY has two new music videos — “I LUV IT” and “New Face” — both already have more than 30 million views on YouTube. “I LUV IT” has a cameo appearance by PSY’s good friend, actor Byung Hun Lee, who dances as if he is a mime behind a wall.
“New Face” stars Apink girl group member SON. SON is now one of the most sought-after models for advertisements in South Korea. Both music videos have a lot of new dance moves from PSY, supported by a large dance troupe behind him. He continues to entertain with every new album.
PSY was born as Park Jae-sang Dec. 31, 1977, to a very affluent family in Gangnam, South Korea.
