1) A romanisation of 싸이 (Hangul, often stylized as PSY), a pseudonym of WrPark Jae-sang (Hangul: 박재상; born December 31, 1977) is a South Korean , model, rapper, dance musician and record producer. He is popular for his humorous videos and stage performances, and has appeared on numerous television programs, including The Ellen Degeneres Show, Extra, Good Sunday: X-Man, The Golden Fishery, The Today Show and Saturday Night Live.

His “Gangnam Style” music video is the most viewed K-pop video on YouTube, and also the most “liked” video on the site. Published on July 15th 2012, it continues to grow rapidly with the video having over 285 million views, and more than 2.8 million “likes,” as of September 26, 2012. The Gangnam Style Songfacts states that following the initial success of the song in the US, Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun signed PSY to his Schoolboy Records label. Braun announced: “We’ve come to an agreement to make some history together and be the first Korean artist to break a big record in the United States.”

Park was born in South Korea on December 31, 1977 and later attended Banpo (반포) Elementary School, Banpo Middle School, and Sehwa (세화) High School. Park went on to attend both Boston University and Berklee College of Music. He describes himself as not following the K-pop mold.

    Who remembers the performance held straight on the sreet somewhere in Seoul?! Which was not on the schedule, so people gathered just because it was on their way home etc... It was before the Gangnam Style went worldwide.. Help!;) PM would be great!

    Don't feed the trolls guys! :D We all know PSY is a star in his country. And I like his stuff, even though I don't understand a damn word and don't like pop, but he so much better than these mainstream pop 'artists' of today which you can hear on the radio..

    PSY is a one hit wonder? Says the people who don't seem to know much about Korean pop music. [6] Firstly, the correct tag is 싸이. Just because you can't read that, doesn't make it the wrong one. Secondly, just because he is not a worldwide known artist does not make him a one-hit wonder. He's had countless of hits in Korea, you know, his home country (and just because you haven't heard of them, doesn't make him any less popular). So you might as well just stick to whatever music you listen to and not pretend to be so smart, we all know you aren't. Being worldwide does not define a star; countless countries have their own stars and no one asked you to blow Gangnam Style so much out of proportion. PSY was enjoying enough fame and success with it before you even laid eyes on it. [6]

    HaHaHaYoureDead, совсем не так :) Просто люди, которые не интересуются корейской музыкой в общем, знают только Ганнам Стайл и Джентельмен, им больше и не надо и их можно понять. Я сама не люблю Сая, не считаю Ганнам Стайл шедевром и т.д., существуют корейские исполнители гораздо лучше. Но всё же у него не только две песни, как бы не хотелось это осознавать всем, кто пишет "УАН ХИТ УАНДЕР" и прочее. Я просто надеюсь, что скоро все забудут о нём и на этом тусовка закончится. Хотя в общем-то я уже давно нигде не слышала, чтобы крутили его песни. Оно и к лучшему.

    One Hit Wonder Korean trash. Sure he's had hits in Korea, but on the American stage (where Korean artists have been trying to succeed for YEARS as it is the biggest stage on the world) he's a one hit wonder. This idiot once wished death to America but once he got a hit in America he started kissing Obama's ass, doing Superbowl commercials, and doing his shitting horsedance on every American stage he could find. Now look at him fading back into irrelevance where Kpop will always be. To Americans, he's nothing more than a dancing William Hung. Kimchi breath, American hating, soju swilling, fat Klown. 쓰레기 음악
