Psy brings some 'Gangnam Style' to Oxford University
LONDON (AFP) - South Korean pop sensation Psy was mobbed by screaming fans as he arrived in Britain on Wednesday to bring a touch of his Gangnam Style to the prestigious Oxford University debating society.
Wearing his trademark dapper suit and sunglasses, the rapper attracted a horde of fans and photographers as he walked into the 189-year-old Oxford Union club.
Asked by reporters at the entrance how it felt to be in the historic city, the 34-year-old said, "It's an honour," before adding: "It's kind of weird - why did they call me?" Psy, whose single Gangnam Style has more than 665 million views on YouTube and has spawned countless videos copying his distinctive dance moves, arrived in Britain from France on Monday for a three-day visit.
Former boxing champion Chris Eubank was among the crowds that turned out to greet him in Oxford. The rapper, whose full name is Park Jae Sang, was invited to address the Oxford Union by its president John Seung Yoon Lee, who is also South Korean.
