With one hit single, the Korean pop star has quickly become one of the most recognized faces around the world. Since the release of the music video on July 15, 2012 Psy has watched all his dreams come true, from dancing with Britney Spears on the Ellen Degeneres Show to being featured on Saturday Night Live

During his recent concert in Toronto, before he began his performance of the wild, electro dance moves that captured the attention of the world, he stood still, looking out at the crowd and in one of his most revealing moments, announced "This is my first time in Canada, in Toronto. This a really touching moment of me."

In Canada, "Gangnam Style" has reached the number one spot on the Canadian Billboard charts, even beating out big-selling artists like Taylor Swift and Rihanna.
The atmosphere of Psy's concerts are exactly what one would expect at the usual K-Pop concert. On stage, Psy loves to make his wildest on-stage fantasies come true, everything from flying around wire to having a enormous inflatable caricature of himself. His hilarious dance moves and high-energy atmosphere create an unforgettable night for concert-goers.
