Born to a businessman father, PSY had no interest in following his father’s footsteps and was a popular ‘funny guy’ while in school. His love for making silly faces and dance steps was visible in the music video for his megahit song ‘Gangnam Style’ and its quirkiness and madness is the biggest reason for it receiving a cult status among the people all over the world. PSY studied music briefly in Berklee College of Music, Boston and dropped out without graduating. He returned back to South Korea in 2000 and arrived on the musical horizon with his first album ‘PSY from the Psycho World’ in 2001. He had a unique style to his music, which included a lot of ‘vulgarity’, according to Korean media. The allegations of obscenity threatened his image and career. He also got booked for possession and consumption of marijuana, which made him a slightly controversial figure in South Korean music scene. And then came ‘Gangnam Style’ in 2012 and PSY crossed the national barriers to become an international celebrity.
