On Oct. 23rd world star PSY met up with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon at the UN headquarters in New York City. They were there to celebrate “Asiana Airline’s Coins of Love,” which received over 7billion won (roughly $6.3million) in donations.
When the two met, the Secretary General joked, “I’m a bit jealous. Until two days ago, someone told me I am the most famous Korean in the world. Now I have to relinquish. I have no regrets.”
“So now you have first and second famous Koreans in the same building,” PSY told the reporters as they posed for photos.
He also had nothing but praises for Ban Ki Moon. “For all the Koreans, he is the guy, you know, in everyone’s heart in Korea, the best among the best. To be here and the fact that he knows me, is so touching right now. He also said he saw my video and counted my video views. This is much more better feeling than when I did No. 2 on Billboard.”
Later on PSY tweeted a picture of the two doing the trademark dance move from his ever so popular music video.
PSY is still very busy with his overseas activites. Recently he stepped down from his role as judge for MNET’s “Super Star K 4.” You can read about his decision and his upcoming lecture at Oxford University HERE.
