Our Questions-PSY’s answers

Knowing that readers want to know more about this music hero with amazing or perhaps, extraordinary dance moves, here are a few questions which are been answered by PSY.
Q:  Did you graduate? You studied at Boston University and Berklee College of Music anyway.
Ans: Not at all. Freshman for four years. Class was too early for me.
Q: What kind of music has inspired you so far?
Ans:  My lifetime role model and hero is Freddie Mercury of Queen. His songwriting skills, I cannot even approach, but his showmanship, I learned it from videos. I’m No. 1 in the U.K. right now, so if I have any chance to go there, I want to meet Queen and to tell them how much I got inspired by their music. Queen and Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Guns N’ Roses. I had a huge rock-band mania.
Q: Do you play any instruments too?
Ans: I play a little bit of drums.
Q: Did you expect Gangnam Style would turn into such a hit initially?
Ans: I released the song on July 15 and I didn’t see anything for 10 days. After 10 days I saw some ripples on YouTube in other languages. A lot of celebrities celebrated my videoon Twitter. At that time I realized this was happening.
Q: Your dance moves have been a reason behind its success. Did you take lessons?
Ans: I studied hard to find something new. I spent like a month to find the horse dance. We are just at the studio, me and my choreographers, we are spending like 30 nights and we are thinking, what is my next dance move? Because in Korea there are huge expectations about my dancing. So it was a lot of pressure.
Q: Being a Korean, do you follow American Music? Your views about it?
Ans: Every musician in Korea, we learn from your pop — we get inspired. I was at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas and when I walked down the hallway someone stopped me and said, “Are you Psy?” And he said, “I’m Jon Bon Jovi.” I grew up listening to Bon Jovi since “You Give Love a Bad Name,” so this was a really touching moment. We took a picture and he uploaded it on his Facebook. It’s unbelievable.
Q: What is your biggest hobby other than singing?
Ans: I’m drinking. It’s my biggest hobby.
Q: Do you think you are the lucky one in Korea who has made his way to Global Music Industry?
Ans: There’s a lot of variety of musicians in Korea. I cannot say they are the best in the world, but I can say that Korean artists are really dynamic artists, so I am going to show that from now on. If I have a chance I want to introduce some of my friends.
