Psy giving free Gangnam concert in Seoul
Whoa, how nice! South Korean rapper Psy will perform his global hit "Gangnam Style" at a free concert in Seoul on Thursday (today?) that is expected to draw 50,000 fans, with millions more watching live on YouTube.
During a hugely successful US promotional tour last month, Psy made a guest appearance at the MTV awards in Los Angeles, taught his signature dance to Britney Spears, and was given a cameo role on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."
His horse-riding moves have been imitated, parodied and referenced in pretty much every conceivable context.
The free concert is being co-organised by the Seoul municipal authorities, who have promised to extend subway services and block off traffic from the area around the city-centre venue.
The free concert is in appreciations of his fans' support back home.
