ABC News interviews PSY on his latest hit, "Gangnam Style"
It looks like PSY will be reaching even a wider range of international audiences with his hit, "Gangnam Style." ABC News reporter Choi Joohee was able to sit down with PSY to interview him on his recent viral success.
Ms. Choi writes, "Chubby with a round belly, PSY, 34, wears a tailored suit complete with chic sunglasses and different color bowties throughout the video. But it is the dance step that is drawing audiences around the world."
PSY explained the concept of "Gangnam Style" to the interviewer, saying, "Gangnam means, it's like Beverly Hills of Korea. But the guy doesn't look like Beverly Hills. Dance doesn't look like Beverly Hills…and the situation in music video doesn't look like Beverly Hills. But he keeps saying, 'I'm Beverly Hills style.' So that's the point. It's sort of a twist."
The rest of the ABC news article went on to recap the contents of the music video that has received so much support all over the Internet, with artists like Josh Groban and T-Pain going on Twitter to express their love for "Gangnam Style."
PSY concluded the interview by sharing his outlook for the future, remarking, "I don't want to open up the champagne yet, but I would like to show the world what Korean music and concerts are all about."
Besides receiving support from well-known celebrities like Josh Groban and T-Pain as well as Justin Bieber's agency, news sources like TIME, Huffington Post, Billboard, and CNN have also picked up on his story, introducing PSY and "Gangnam Style" to international audiences.
Meanwhile, PSY has released a second version of "Gangnam Style," titled "Oppa You're My Style" featuring 4minute's Hyuna, who tells the story of the original track through a woman's perspective. TIME's "NewsFeed" blog mentioned the latest release, describing it as a "glitzier, glossier and more choreographed video than the original."
