Psy negatively reacts to the use of tax money for a golden 'Gangnam Style' statue worth 357,000 USD

A golden statue featuring the iconic 'horse dance' hand motions from Psy 's hit song "Gangnam Style" was established at COEX last year. The sculpture is reportedly worth 400,000,000 KRW, which is equal to approximately 357,142 USD.

What are Psy's thoughts on this? Does he approve?

On July 24, Ilgan Sports sat down with the world star for an exclusive interview. Psy honestly stated, "I think it's just too much. It's also funny how they only created the hands."  

He then went on to explain, "I understand that everyone was so hyped and excited after the song went viral but this is my occupation after all. I didn't do it for the country or anything. I really appreciate the fact that they used tax money to create this but I really think it's just too much."

He then went on to discuss the success of "Gangnam Style", saying, "Timing is important."  When the reporter asked if it was possible for Psy to make another hit song like it, the singer responded, "Timing is very important...'Gangnam Style' was just right. The song 'Right Now' might've succeeded too, who knows. The song just happened to be released in the summer when a lot of people coincidentally got to listen to it."
