Psy: 'Lost interest' after Gangnam Style
PARK Jae Sang, better known by his stage name Psy, was so overwhelmed by the success of his 2012 hit song Gangnam Style that he struggled after that to come up with new material.
In a live-streamed show on the V app on Saturday night, Psy said: "I was initially not able to overcome the weight (of making another hit song) as a producer of Gangnam Style and couldn't release any songs for the past two years.
"(Due to the pressure), I lost interest in music and even thought of giving up making songs."
However, the singer eventually overcame the burden with the thought that people can fall, but if they stay down, that would be a failure.
He revealed some tracks of his new album during his exclusive V show titled Psy Little Television, which started last Tuesday. The six-day show was to end last night.
Introducing the new song Good Day Will Come, which offers a hopeful message, he said: "This is a story I want to deliver to struggling people."
During the show, Psy also read comments from his fans and chatted with them.
When a fan asked whether he thought he was cool, the 37-year-old said: "All celebrities may think they are handsome or pretty, but I have never thought that I looked nice for the past 15 years.
"But as a specialist, I once thought I was sexy."
Psy is slated to unveil the songs and music videos of his seventh album tomorrow. He is also set to meet his fans at his three-day concert All Night Stand 2015 in Seoul, which kicks off on Dec 24.
