Livewire performer Psy proved that he was the big brother of K-pop at the YG Family concert held here on Saturday night.

It didn't matter if the audience didn't know the Gangnam Style star's lesser known songs (meaning any titles other than the two favourites Gangnam Style and Gentleman).

"It's okay if you guys only know two of my songs. Don't pretend that you know (my other song) Champion," quipped the self-deprecating Psy at the multi-act concert featuring artistes from Korean entertainment giant and talent agency YG Entertainment.

He proceeded to rock the crowd with his "unknown song" Champion, an upbeat hit in his home country during the 2002 Korea-Japan Fifa World Cup Games.

Audience members wielding official light sticks and banners in support of other YG artistes all got up on their feet and bopped along to the pulsating beats of Psy's ditties.

That was not the only high-octane moment at the three-hour concert held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, which looked to be a sold-out concert with almost every seat filled. The organisers will release official attendance figures on Sunday.

The YG Family Concert, which runs for a second night on Sunday, had a star-studded line-up: rookie boyband Winner, hip-hop trio Epik High, A-list boyband BigBang and edgy girlgroup 2NE1. Each act had their spot in the limelight, taking turns to hold court with their own songs.

What is a family party without covering each other's hits? The YG artistes had a blast mimicking each other, and some to hilarious effect.

The cool dudes of BigBang hammed up their feminine charms with their rendition of 2NE1's I Love You. The group's rapper TOP opened the song with off-pitched howls for laughs, before the four guys sashayed, cooed and pouted coquettishly.

BigBang's youngest member Seungri, 23, was conspicuously absent from the concert. He was involved in a car accident in Seoul in the wee hours of Friday morning.

The quintet's Taeyang took time to talk about their injured colleague, and said: "We were supposed to be five, but one of us couldn't make it. Seungri is okay, but please pray for him. We will be back, a better BigBang."
