PSY: Horse-riding signature step

“Gangnam Style" goes viral!

PSY has stole the show from most of the KPOP singers. Especially his horse riding step has become his signature step.

PSY’s press conferences have gathered a number of foreign media outlets from the U.S., France, and Singapore and a few leading channels including NBC and BBC. The most popular step was the main attraction of his performance, the famous horse-riding dance.

PSY surely is reborn as a global star. The most famous is his cow-boy dance or the horse riding dance steps.
He said“I thought I had already achieved five or even ten times more success than I had expected in Korea before I left for the U.S., but now, I just can’t believe what’s happening in front of my eyes,” said PSY during a press conference following his return. “I express my gratitude for the love and enthusiasm for my song and my music video and I will work harder to let the world know the singer PSY.”
“I will perform the horse-riding dance topless among a dense crowd. Wouldn’t City Hall Plaza be the most potential spot?”
PSY expressed his interest in the colorful parodies of “Gangnam Style” being uploaded these days. He said he keeps watching them every day, and was struck this morning by a parody performed by the marching band of Ohio State University.
Now the PSY video is available in 3D also.
