Psy Quote

“The world’s most famous and popular language is music.” Psy


“Wow, it’s Oxford. Beautiful! All right, so when I was 15 I saw a video footage of Queen at the Wembley Stadium and they sang Bohemian Rhapsody, it was literally shocked, first of all, the song itself it was shocked because it was too long and it has too many changes. So I was Korean, I didn’t know what the lyrics were about and I was not familiar with the opera thing. So like slow things going on and then suddenly it changes to the opera and it says something “Galileo” and then rock goes on and then slow goes on – and then the song is done. I was like, “What is that?”

After I saw that, for one year I didn’t listen to the music because it was so shock and a little bit of scary. After graduating high school, I went to the United States for college and I spent four years there, and at that time it was the years of 1996-1999. That was the first time I did my best in something. Make tracks. When I was young, I was really good at dancing but not like good looking dancing, but you know, the dancing.

My only interest when I was young, my only interest in regarding was to be attractive to the girls. That was the only interest, but you know, I know I’m not that good looking so I’ve got to try to invent things hard. Like you know, talking funny, dancing funny, singing funny, do some funny things. You know, I think laughing and smiling can be handsome, guys. That’s what I thought. So I tried that kind of thing, so for a long time.
