Never mind Gangnam Style, Little Psy is ready to step out of Big Psy's shadow

Little Psy, the young boy featured in Korean superstar Psy's international music video hit Gangnam Style, is so ready to step out of that song's shadow.

The eight-year-old, whose real name is Hwang Min Woo, tells Life! in Korean via a translator: "I have danced to Gangnam Style at least 500 times already. I am really quite tired of dancing to the song."

In town recently to promote the launch of the new LG Optimus G smartphone, he adds, sounding like a true media veteran: "I hope to slowly step away from Gangnam Style, and start to focus on my own songs.

"I have a new single coming up called Showtime. It is a song that I really enjoy singing and dancing to. It's my song. It's my song. Not Psy's song." Gangnam Style, the massive hit song featuring horseriding-like dance moves, is the most-watched video on Youtube ever, with more than 1.3 billion views.
