PSY Gangnam Style craze takes over Istanbul

The South Korean pop sensation PSY, who brought the whole world to its knees with his irresistible ‘Gangnam style’ hit, gave a much-anticipated concert in Istanbul on February 21.

PSY took the stage for a short 15 minute show as part of the Tepebaşı Blue Night Istanbul festival with a group of Korean dancers in front of 20,000 frenetic fans.

Those who missed PSY’s live concert can watch his appearance on Turkish television. The South Korean rapper hero will be hosted by producer Acun Ilıcalı on February 23 and serve as a guest jury member on the program “Yetenek Sizsiniz,” the Turkish version of “America’s Got Talent.”

In December last year, “Gangnam Style” became the first video to break 1 billion views on YouTube, marking a historic milestone on the Internet and changing the definition of “having the moves” forever as people world-wide galloped their way onto the dance floor.

The singer announced his trip to Turkey on his Twitter account, writing, “Excited to see my fans in Turkey for Istanbul Blue Night and Yeteneksizsiniz Turkiye next week!”
