PSY Concert: 80,000 Attend Free "Gangnam Style" Concert in South Korea

Close

Korean singer Psy has definitely reached superstardom.

Psy made a promise to his fans that if his hit single "Gangnam Style" was at the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart that he would give a free concert. But even though he only reached the second spot, he still made good on his word.

The event took place in Seoul, South Korea, on Thursday night.

The two hour concert attracted 80,000 audience members who swarmed the Seoul Plaza to watch Psy perform "Gangnam Style" as well as his other hits. The streets of the South Korean capital were filled with Psy fans as the plaza was quickly filled.

Psy put on a highly energetic show and even performed without his shirt which he also said he would do previously in September.

The event took place five miles away from the Gangnam district, the titular area which is parodied in the song.

"This is for Korea!" the rapper said as he gulped down a full bottle of Korean rice liquor.

The singer really appreciates the fame that his fans have given him. Psy's agency said that the whole event was put on in order "to return the encouragement domestic fans have been giving to Psy."

This marked Psy's return to his home country after doing a number of appearances on American television. He rocked out for Ellen DeGeneres, "Saturday Night Live," and had a big concert on the "Today Show."

The singer has been on the South Korean charts since 2001, but only recently crossed over to being a global sensation.

Psy's hit "Gangnam Style" has reached nearly 340 million views on YouTube since its debut.
