PSY celebrated his 35th birthday by performing "Gangnam Style" during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest at Times Square with the rapper MC Hammer and his old friends who had flown over from South Korea; they were none other than Yoo Jaeseok (in yellow suit), Noh Hongcheol (Hongchul) (in green shirt), and Haha (in blue suit). Four of them are the Infinity Challenge (or Infinite Challenge) buddies and both Yoo and Noh (Elevator Guy) were featured in PSY's Gangnam Style music video. (Click to learn more about Yoo and Noh ended up joining in the making of history.)

In an interview with MTV, PSY said, “Being in Times Square on New Year’s Eve is already special — it’s the biggest stage in the universe — plus it’s my birthday, so, with all that, it may be the ending of Gangnam Style.”

Yeah, maybe it's time to move on.  Adieu 2012!  Adieu Gangnam Style!  PSY, the world is still hungry for your music though. So, keep the ball rolling!

And lastly, let's watch Google's "Zeitgeist 2012: Year In Review" featuring South Korea's PSY (@0:21), Ban Kimoon (@2:04), and Noh Hongcheol (@2:31).


  1. Thanks for the wish Onsemiro! I hope a great new year with great music will be upon us!

    Replying here because I wanted to say something about Psy. He's scheduled to appear in Australia on March music festival. The poster still has got his gangnam style caricature, so he can't let go yet! Well if he releases a new song by March it's possible he'll do the new one.

  2. If he performs there in March, then he'll definitely sing a new song!

  3. Psy and his Gangnam Style is on trends. A very good lift up for the Korea and Korean wave. he became an instant music icon.
