Seoul seeks Psy to perform in North Korea.

South Korea is seeking the ‘Gangnam Style’ pop star Psy to perform in North Korea in next week’s historic concerts by South Korean artists in the North’s capital.

Psy is is a South Korean singer, rapper, songwriter, and record producer known for his humorous videos and stage performances and for his hit single “Gangnam Style”.

The song “Gangnam Style” has become an international breakthrough for the singer.

It is one of the most viewed videos on Youtube.

And now, according to multiple reports, South Korea is pushing the singer to perform in next week’s historic concerts by South Korean artists in the North’s capital.

There will be at least nine South Korean pop acts to visit North Korea next week for two concerts in Pyongyang, the very first in more than a decade.

The show is a part of reconciliatory moves for the planned inter-Korean summit in April.

Thus, they are seeking Psy to be included in the lineup.

“We have formally proposed to the North to add Psy to the lineup,” Seoul’s MBC TV station late Sunday quoted a Seoul government official as saying.

But Pyongyang opposed due to the singer’s provocative performance style considering the conservative North.

According to a report from Manila Bulletin, the pop star had stripped topless on stage and the lyrics of his songs include Korean swearwords in past where the spectators y the North’s popular Moranbong band remain firmly seated throughout.

Based on envoys, Kim offered to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in before having a face-to-face summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

North Korea has not officially confirmed or denied the proposed summits.
