Psy to dance half-naked if Gangnam Style tops US chart


SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean rapper Psy pledged on Tuesday to perform his signature horse-riding dance "half-naked" somewhere in Seoul if his global hit Gangnam Style tops the United States (US) Billboard chart.

The song is currently ranked 11 on the chart's "Hot 100" list.

"If I do become number one on Billboard, I'd dare to dance half-naked in front of a large crowd of people," Psy told a packed press conference on his return from a triumphant promotional tour in the United States. "I would pick a place, preferably in front of Seoul City Hall."

The chubby 34-year-old shot to international fame when his Gangnam Style video went viral shortly after being posted on YouTube in mid-July.
