Why Park Jae-sang is Extraordinary

Unorthodox Korean hip-hop singer and songwriter Psy released “Gangnam Style” and uploaded it on YouTube on July 24th 2012. It did not take long before it turned into an internet viral sensation that has launched him into stardom across the globe. Within five months since his Gangnam Style music video YouTube upload, the video has gone on to be the most downloaded video in YouTube history with over 850,000,000 views.

The Story of a YouTube Sensation

Psy is definitely the most contentious extraordinary person we celebrate to date. He caused trouble at school, dropped out of university to pursue music, was fined for inappropriate lyrics on his debut album, dodged the South Korean National Military Draft before being caught and redrafted; however, what makes Psy so extraordinary is his continued passion for his music and the tongue–in–cheek viral video sensation he has launched with his Gangnam Style music video.

Today, not only is Psy the record holder of the most downloaded video in YouTube’s history, he is also the fastest. Psy was appointed United Nations Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) by Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary–General. He has received swag of awards and accolades from music award events all over the world, celebrating his success in bringing K-Pop into global mainstream acceptance.

Gangnam Style’s Global Success

The road to success has not been an easy one for Psy. His recent popularity has taken over 12 years and six album releases in the making. Throughout this time, Psy has faced both public backlash and endured being laughed at by the wider Korean public because of his looks and dancing style. Add to that his financial struggles along the way. However, as true extraordinary persons do, he pushed on and we are here today to celebrate and bring you more about the man called Psy and his “Gangnam Style” global success.

Psy’s passion for his music, his ability to turn a catchy, tongue in cheek, four–hour video shoot into an international global phenomenon that we know today is amazing! His lesson to us all is to keep going and never give up pursuing whatever it is that we are most passionate about. By doing simply that, “your dreams can come true” as with Psy and his Gangnam Style!
