Psy Seeking Psychological Help

South Korean pop star Psy, who held a one-night concert “PSY Live in Manila!” at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines on February 16, admitted that he is seeking help from professional psychologists.

In an interview with veteran broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez, which was aired on ABS-CBN’s news program “TV Patrol Weekend” on Sunday, the rap artist said he wants that a psychological research be undertaken to know why his dance track “Gangnam Style” became a global phenomenon.

“Gangnam Style,” recognized as the most viewed and liked video in YouTube history, went viral online last year and gained more than 1.3 billion views as of this posting. Psy has performed in big events and awarding ceremonies and is holding concerts in many countries worldwide.

The K-Pop rapper said there are thousands of YouTube clips that show children, teenagers and adults doing their own memes of his viral music video. He wants to find out from the experts’ perspective why the response was very overwhelming.

Although the captivating “Gangnam Style” dance move is more often referred to as the “horse dance,” Psy also revealed that he isn’t a horse rider.

Psy, who hinted that his new single will be released sometime in April, thanked his Filipino fans for the support. During his Philippine concert, the internet sensation shared the stage with AiAi delas Alas, the country’s “Comedy Concert Queen” along with the funny duo Wally Bayola and Jose Manalo.
