Even ahead of the release of “That That,” fans were eagerly anticipating it. With two legendary K-Pop artists together, everyone knew it was about to be one of the biggest hits ever, and they were right.

The song is a catchy bop, but it also has a fun choreography to match.

Not to mention that music video. The Old West is a popular aesthetic in K-Pop lately, but PSY managed to make it vibrant and comical too.

Now, PSY has revealed that BTS‘s Suga had not been the only special feature to star in the MV. There could have been a fun little cameo from an iconic Squid Game character, but it’s not who you would expect.

It’s not the Salesman (Gong Yoo), Seong Gi Hun/Player 456 (Lee Jung Jae), or Kang Sae-byeok/ Player 067 (Jung Ho Yeon)…

It’s Younghee!

Killing Squid Game contestants is not the only Younghee kills. She can slay some choreography too!

Nevertheless, Younghee wouldn’t have even appeared conventionally. PSY shared a TikTok featuring himself playing pool dressed as Younghee on what appears to be the set of “That That.” He captioned the video, Younghee almost made a special appearance on #thatthat.”

Netizens were shocked to find out what could have been, and they all loved the reference to the hit Squid Game series. So, some suggested we could get an alternative version of the “That That” MV.
