Ban Ki-Moon has Gangnam Style 강남스타일 PSY at UNIT...
It was bound to happen. Two powerhouses of South Korea met Tuesday in New York for the first time.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and rapper PSY lavished praise on one another during a photo opportunity at UN headquarters. 'I'm a bit jealous. Until two days ago someone told me I am the most famous Korean in the world.'—UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon
The South Korean pop singer, whose smash video for his song Gangnam Style has gone viral, was quick to joke with reporters about the encounter.
"So now you have first and second famous Korean in the same building," PSY said. Ban joked that he now feels overshadowed by the star, whose video has scored more than half a billion views on YouTube. The UN chief even did a few of PSY's trademark dance moves.
