Psy Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Park Jae-sang, to the public known by the stage name of Psy, is a famous Korean record producer, rap artist, television personality, singer and songwriter, as well as an actor. To the audiences, Psy is perhaps best known for “Gangnam Style”, a K-pop single, which became an international success. Released in 2012, “Gangnam Style” quickly went viral on the YouTube network, and made it to #1 on music charts in Canada, Germany, United Kingdom and Russia, in addition to 26 other countries. The song had a great cultural and social impact, as it inspired a wave of flash mob performances of the “Gangnam Style” dance all around the world, and was even praised by the President of the United States Barack Obama. Such athletes as Novak Djokovic, Chris Gale and Manny Pacquiao performed the popular dance during various competitions, while the song itself was featured in such television shows as “The X Factor” and “Glee”. In 2012, “Gangnam Style” was even placed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most likes on its video on YouTube. To date, the song has sold more than five million copies in the United States alone, which has earned it a 5-time Platinum certification from the RIAA. Psy has released five studio albums so far, yet none of the songs has exceeded the success of “Gangnam Style”.

Psy Net Worth $45 Million

A famous singer and songwriter, how rich is Psy? According to sources, in 2013, Psy earned as much as $300,000 for his performance in Malaysia, while in 2014 he collected $6.8 million from his YouTube partnership. Psy then went on to earn $4.6 million from various endorsements. In regards to his total wealth, Psy’s net worth is estimated to be $45 million, most of which he has collected from his involvement in the entertainment industry.

Psy was born in 1977, in Seoul, South Korea, where he studied at the Sehwa High School. Upon his graduation, Psy moved out to the United States in order to take up studies at the Boston University, since he planned to work at his father’s company “DI Corporation”. However, Psy was disinterested in business administration, hence he enrolled in the Berklee College of Music. Psy failed to graduate from Berklee too, and instead returned to South Korea, where he decided to become a singer. Psy debuted in the music industry in 2001, with the release of “Psy from the Psycho World!”. The album’s inappropriate content created a lot of controversy, which was followed by the release of his second studio album entitled “Sa 2”. The latter album was heavily criticized due to a negative influence, and was even banned from sale. Despite the initial obstacles to Psy’s career, he eventually broke-through as an artist with his single “Gangnam Style”, which gained him many career opportunities. Since then, Psy has had an opportunity to work with such famous people as Scooter Braun, YG Family, Epik High and Snoop Dogg.

A well-known rap artist, singer and songwriter, Psy has an estimated net worth of $45 million.

    #Quote
    1 [observation, 2014] People always comparing my new thing with Gangnam Style. That means I have severe, heavy pressure on my shoulder. If I'm walking out and no one is asking me about autograph or photograph, that's a tragedy. I should quit my job with that.
    2 My original name is Jae-Sang Park, so it's totally different.
    3 I never expect I would become a K-pop star.
    4 I need to show the world that my final goal is to perform huge concerts like Madonna.
    5 I just made my album. I did my best. And I uploaded the video just to 'YouTube.' That was all.
    6 Everything moves way too fast.
    7 Before 'Gangnam Style' I was not a good attitude artist.
    8 We are just at the studio, me and my choreographers, we are spending like 30 nights and we are thinking, what is my next dance move? Because in Korea there are huge expectations about my dancing. So it was a lot of pressure.
    9 Gangnam is a territory in Seoul, Korea. I describe it as noble at the daytime and going crazy at the night time. I compare ladies to the territory. So - noble at the daytime, going crazy at the night time - and the lyric says I am the right guy for the lady who is like that.
    10 I'm a bit jealous. Until two days ago someone told me I am the most famous Korean in the world.
    11 I try to dress classy and dance cheesy.
    12 The world's most famous and popular language is music.
    13 My lifetime role model and hero is Freddie Mercury of Queen.
    14 There's a lot of variety of musicians in Korea. I cannot say they are the best in the world, but I can say that Korean artists are really dynamic artists, so I am going to show that from now on.
    15 While I'm grateful for the freedom to express one's self, I've learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I'm deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted.
    16 Unexpectedly, I'm here now, so I need to let all the U.S. marketers know that Asians are not different. We are all the same.
    17 That's why 'Gangnam Style' works. If someone handsome uses that phrase it's just awkward. But if someone like me uses it, it's funny.
    18 All the people in Korea are cheering me like I'm a gold medalist or something, so I have a responsibility to my country.
    19 I'm not that good looking.
    20 I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world.
