Psy brings Gangnam Style home with free show
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean rapper Psy brought his hit Gangnam Style home on Thursday with a raucous free concert in Seoul, capping a month of global chart success that turned the chubby 34-year-old into a national hero.
The municipal government closed off part of the city centre and extended subway operations for the estimated 80,000 fans who packed the open venue outside Seoul City Hall and spilled out into the surrounding streets.
"I did not get here because I was worthy of it. I'm here because of all of you. I'm just a fat man with two kids," the singer told the ecstatic, dancing crowd at the show - streamed live to an international audience via YouTube.
"It's a golden opportunity to show the world how well we Koreans play," Psy shouted.
