Broadcasted on May 17, Psy made a guest appearance on MBC's 'Radio Star' where he confessed that he had American Syndrome and felt cocky after "Gangnam Style" went viral worldwide. "Gangnam Style" is still the most viewed video on YouTube with more than 2.8 Billion views.

"After 'Gangnam Style' exploded I humbly mentioned in an interview, 'this probably won't ever happen again' when inside I had the urge to do it again." Psy added, "That's when I became cocky."

Psy continued, "Usually I would go on variety shows and the like but I didn't do that. I didn't pay any attention to what other people would say," he confessed honestly after his success in America, hungry for even more fame and fortune.

Hearing this, the MCs commented, "Didn't your collaboration with Snoop Dog cure your illness in 'Hangover'?"  With that, Psy replied, "That was when it was at its peak," causing much laughter in the studio.

And also, he was what got me interested in KPOP and now that's all I do, watch KPOP videos.

Not hard to do when you're in the states (I live there). Nice of him to honestly admit it and not get swept up in it though.

You can be cocky especially if you have the stuff to back it up. He's still the richest KPop artist despite limited releases. As I grow older, I viewed his appearances in US quite disturbing as it seemed like Hollywood celebrities used him as a novelty, an opportunity to pretend to be quirky and worldly. That's why I no longer care about idols' stats especially if the buzz is from US.

Hollywood was laughing at him instead of laughing with him.

Didn't matter if they were laughing at him instead of with him as he was laughing his way to the bank!!

You hit it right on the head. I watched some of Good Morning America, Ellen, and other shows and it looked like they were profiting off of him. Some of them would also parody him on their shows and make him look stupid. Thanks for sharing.

Fame and fortune has it's downside. You start accumulating a lot of fake friends.

Yes, not to mention you have to live in the shadow of that song for the rest of your life.

That's why you stay true to yourself and stay grounded, no matter how much money you make or how famous you are, in order to keep on a straight path.
