The South Korean YouTube sensation PSY, who brought the whole world to its knees with his irresistible ‘Gangnam style’ hit, gave a much-anticipated concert in Istanbul on Feb. 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 mollify themselves with his appearance on the small screen. The South Korean rapper hero will be hosted Feb. 23 by producer Acun Ilıcalı and serve as a guest jury member on the program “Yetenek Sizsiniz,” the Turkish version of “America’s Got Talent.” 

PSY had announced his trip to Turkey on his Twitter account, writing, “Excited to see my fans in Turkey for Istanbul Blue Night and Yetenek Sizsiniz Turkiye next week!” 

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.

This is rather sad guys. This is sad day in Turkiye. It amazes people like me who are looking Turkiye from the outside because last time Turks were denying Kurds their native tongue yet 20,000 Turks openly dance to foreign language of which they have no clue. They can sing Gangnam in every club yet hospitals are banned from registering children with Kurdish names.
