What’s Psy‘s secret to having two huge hits and 4 Guinness World Records?

Well, he says it’s because he’s “a bit handsome”. On the show ‘Live with Kelly & Michael‘, the singer was asked, “What do you think you’ve tapped into globally with people, that your songs and dances are so catchy? That everyone does them instantly, and everybody rushes to the computer to see the new Psy number?“. He answered jokingly, “So, my previous song ‘Gangnam Style’ has 1.6 billion views right now… [On 'Gentleman'], it was 38 million a day. Isn’t it crazy? Two songs in a row on YouTube. I can say at this point, I think I’m a bit handsome, maybe?“.

MC Kelly Ripa agreed vigorously as the audience clapped and laughed. Psy then taught the pair the “Gentleman” dance. When Kelly Ripa announced, “We want to be in your next video“, Psy suggested that the trio do a dance cover of the song instead.

YG Entertainment gets you closer to finding out “Who’s Next?” for a debut or comeback

Posted: 07 May 2013 11:35 PM PDT

YG Entertainment previously left an ambiguous teaser, asking fans, “Who’s Next?”, with the names of its artists listed on the poster. Now, the agency has narrowed down the list by fading out some of the names, leaving just 2NE1, Kang Seung Yoon, CL, Taeyang, and YG New Artist!

Even with the shorter list of candidates, fans are still having a hard time predicting the next artist or group, since the ones left out of the list were mostly already ruled out.

YG Entertainment stated, “Starting from the 28th to the end of this year, a lot of YGE artists plan to make their comebacks. As 28th is the starting date, CEO Yang Hyun Suk and the agency artists and staff are preparing hard for it.”

It seems the agency will be continuing to release a few more of these posters until there is just one name left! But until then, can you guess “Who’s Next?” now that the list has been narrowed down?
