The recent online obsession over PSY’s video for “Gangnam Style” has turned the Korean artist into a global phenomenon. “Gangnam Style,” a hit single about the ideal hip/trendy man and woman, has received close to 100 million YouTube views and has grabbed the attention of Robbie Williams, T Pain, and Josh Groban, as well as several major media outlets such as CNN, The L.A. Times and Huffington Post. But long before the Internet turned PSY into an international sensation, he spent the last 10 years building his career as one of South Korea’s most beloved icons.
Jai-Sang Park, known by his stage name, PSY, is a Korean singer, songwriter and producer. He attended Berklee College of Music and jokingly takes pride in being a freshman for ten years. While living on the East Coast, PSY developed a love of hip-hop and later incorporated the urban sound into his debut album, PSY from the PSYcho World! Both his first album, and his sophomore release, Cheap 2, made PSY popular and controversial among younger fans.
Although he later moved away from a focus on hip-hop, the influence remains throughout his subsequent releases, including his most recent studio album PSY 6 on which “Gangnam Style” is featured.
With an upcoming sold out concert in Seoul on August 11th at the Jamsil Sports Complex, PSY is once again ready to prove to his fans that he is the consummate showman.
His concerts are highly anticipated sold-out events that showcase his artistry and vision.
The music video for "It's Art", a kaleidoscopic montage of PSY’s live performances, captures the heart of a PSY concert experience — a pulse pounding, emotionally charged experience for the senses.
With the spotlight shining on him, PSY is excited to bring his “Gangnam Style” to the rest of the world.
