MANILA, Philippines– Korean pop sensation and “King of YouTube” PSY’s concert in Manila will be held on Dec. 21 at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) open grounds, Pocholo Concepcion reports, quoting sources in direct contact with the show’s promoter.

PSY’s previously announced concert date, Nov. 29, did not push through due to conflicts in the artist’s schedule.

The 34-year-old singer-songwriter shot to fame in August, when the music video of his song “Gangnam Style – a parody of the trendy lifestyle in his birthplace, the Gangnam district in Seoul, South Korea – went viral on YouTube. In just four months it became the site’s most-watched video with more than 800 million views – surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

    Now we are overacting. Getting on the bandwagon with the Gangnam style dancing is okay but having Psy on a concert here? This is ridiculous. He is just a one-dance hit. After this, he will be forgotten. I will not spend hard-earned money to see him dance.

    WTF?! well, i don’t know of any other song of his, except that gad-dem style. and frankly, i’m getting tired of hearing – note – hearing, NOT listening, to it being played. for me, i watched the video because i got curious of this cr*p, and it made me laugh. i don’t like the song, nor the video. i just found it stupidly funny. but not to the point of enjoying it.

    and i wouldn’t spend any dime to watch this. not even if someone would give me free VIP tickets. in the words of MTV’s migrane boy, “i’d rather catch pneumonia and die!”no offense to those who enjoy his music.
