Park Jae-sang (박재상; born December 31, 1977 in UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}}) is a UsefulNotes/{{South Korea}}n singer-songwriter, rapper, and record producer. He goes by the stage name, Psy (싸이, often stylized as PSY). He debuted in the 90's and has since been known in South Korea for his many comedic songs, music videos and dances that turned social phenomenon into SarcasmMode.

[[OlderThanTheyThink His earlier works during]] TurnOfTheMillennium are [[DarkerAndEdgier dark and gritty]] in usual sense, having cuss words and sarcastic sentences spewing here and there, with some music videos having sense of BlackComedy. When he returned in TheNewTens, he took the [[LighterAndSofter brighter, upbeat and more-humorous route]], with his new songs having tons of silly humors threw in.

In July 2012, he released the music video for his single "Music/GangnamStyle", which became a global hit of immense proportions for some reason. Since then PSY has appeared on numerous television programs in almost every continent. As for the internet, "Gangnam Style" is still actively being parodied, with more than 1 million search results since its debut.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0 "Gangnam Style"]] is Website/YouTube's most viewed and liked video with almost ''2.8 billion views'' and over 12 million likes. Though it remains his most popular video, the following singles didn't do bad either; in April 2013 Psy's much awaited follow-up single [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASO_zypdnsQ "Gentleman"]] was uploaded onto [=YouTube=] and racked up hundreds of millions of views within days, and in June 2014, two months and a year since "Gentleman", [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkMNOlYcpHg "Hangover"]], a collaboration with Music/SnoopDogg was uploaded. The song gained ~10 million views on its first day. At the end of November 2015, Psy returned with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrG4TEcSuRg "Daddy"]] being released.

Shortly after release of his memetic Gangnam Style single, he signed with Music/JustinBieber's manager, Scooter Braun, planning to work on more songs in the near future.

* BeerGoggles: In the video for ''Hangover'', Psy and Snoop Dogg pick up a couple of housewives and take them partying. They might have been ''just'' sober enough to know what they're doing at first, but later when they're out at a Karaoke Club, Psy sees them as younger, more conventionally-attractive looking women .

** Speaking of his earlier works before 2010s, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmizNfPjolw Father]]" is a [[HeartwarmingMoments very-heartwarming one]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig8AaFSzzGI The remake of this song is even brighter.]]
