Psy has officially taken “Gangnam Style” to the United Nations. The K-Pop singer met with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Tuesday (Oct. 23), and, before you ask, yes they did dance some of Psy’s now-iconic “Gangnam Style” moves.
The South Korean rapper has been touring around the world recently and has visited various celebrities along the way. He taught Hugh Jackman and Ryan Seacrest the “Gangnam Style” dance last week, but this U.N. visit takes the Psy phenomenon to a whole new level.
“Until two days ago someone told me I am the most famous Korean in the world,” Ban told Psy during their meet, according to the Associated Press. “Now I have to relinquish. I have no regrets.”
Psy was similarly complimentary, teasing, “So now you have first and second famous Korean in the same building.”
In all seriousness, Psy seemed honored to have the opportunity to meet the fellow South Korean figure at the UN in New York City.
“For all the Koreans he is the guy, you know, in everyone’s heart in Korea, the best among the best. To be here and he knows me, even the thing that he knows me is so touching right now, and he’s saying he saw my video,” said Psy. “He counted my video views … This is much more better feeling than when I did Number Two on Billboard.”
