PSY, The New Idol From The East

Having perfect physical appearance as a famous person often makes the public figure willing to do anything, but not for some famous people including PSY.

Who does not know PSY? a South Korean rapper, songwriter and music producer who become global with his Gangnam Style video clips? He even earned a nickname “King of Youtube” because of his music videos that reach first rank as the most-watched in YouTube beating world-class singers. He also won some other awards for his Gangnam Style phenomenon. 

This unexpected popularity has strengthened the Korean Wave which have being the talk of the world and make the world’s attention to the music a little distracted and no longer focused to the western world as usual.

Yes, no one would have thought, probably not even PSY that Gangnam Style could become worldwide. The logic is, if your music wants to be known throughout the entire world, then as a songwriter or singer, you should make it in international language, English. However PSY has managed to subvert the stereotypes.

Korean language is not a familiar language, even for a fellow Asian though. So far, the Korean language only used in Korea.

Another unique fact, PSY physical appearance as an entertainer is not worthy to idolized. He is not handsome, fatty, and dressed up a bit tacky. But he managed to become an idol and once again beat the stereotypes that an idol should have beautiful or handsome face, looks manly for a man, and have fashionable style.

That is PSY, a figure that is far from perfect that has emerged as a new idol world with his imperfections and his stupid dance style.
