KOREAN MUSIC: PSY Will Perform at AMA


YG revealed today Psy is booked to perform at the American Music Awards (AMA), Sunday, November 18th and also for a guest spot on NBC's The Tonight Show on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22nd).  He will also perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA), a week before the AMAs as he received his first EMA nomination for Best Video.

And recently (November 1st), YG said in an interview with eDailythat he had already listened to Psy’s US debut single and he personally thought it would be no less than “Gangnam Style.” It was originally scheduled to be released sometime in November and its lyrics would be a mix of half Korean and half English. According to YG, however, chances are that its release will be postponed until early next year because “Gangnam Style” is still going strong (in the US). YG also revealed that they were reconsidering the ratio of Korean to English in the song and contemplating ways to get him ultimately good results.


BONUS 1: Ever curious about PSY's female backup dancers? The girl who always dances to his right (or to his left from your point of view) is Won Ayeon (the blonde in the video below) and the other girl is Yoon Heejin. They are part of YG's Crazygirls Dance Team. Ayeon is my favorite and was featured in "Gangnam Style" music video - she was the hot girl who opened the video by cooling PSY with her fan, strutted with him in the outdoor parking lot, and danced with him in the stable.





BONUS 2: Watch PSY perform in front of over 25,000 Parisiennes and Parisians who seem to have authentically inherited Ddechang (떼창, "group singing") from South Koreans.
