Psy and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon recently met on October 23rd at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York.
“I’m a little jealous of Psy. Recently, a friend told me that I used to be the most famous Korean in the world, but now I had to give up that position because of Psy,” joked Ban Ki Moon, upon meeting. While Psy replied to the onlookers with “You are currently looking at the most famous Korean and the second most famous Korean in the world.”
Ban Ki Moon then continued with his jokes, saying things that Psy can solve the problem of global warming because he’s so cool and that because Psy is so full with energy, that he may be the answer to the energy crisis.
“Really? That means you increased my YouTube view count. This is a big moment in my life. Koreans respect Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, so I’m honored that you even clicked on my YouTube video,” Psy said when Ban Ki Moon revealed that 500 millions people saw the “Gangnam Style” MV and that he has seen the MV many times as well.
The media then asked Psy if he could teach the Secretary General the dance. Which Psy replied with “I think he already knows it.“
