[Context] - PSY is being linked to Yang Hyun Suk's dinner party where YHS allegedly offered sex services to 2 overseas investors and paid the women with Chanel bags. Malaysian media reported on the 29th that the 2 investors were millionaire Jho Low and Thai businessman Chavanos Rattakul. Jho Low denied the reports saying he met YHS through PSY who also released a statement saying "he was just meeting with a friend and wasn't aware of any other activities."

PSY's full statement:
"Hello. This is PSY.
It is true that the Jho Low mentioned in the news is my friend. When I knew [Jho Low] back then, he had been someone who was active in Hollywood’s show business industry. I came to know of him because of my overseas activities during that time, and I introduced Jho Low to Yang Hyun Suk.
Regardless of if he was a good friend or not, it is an indisputable fact that I was friends with Jho Low.
When Jho Low and his party visited Korea as part of their Asia tour, Yang Hyun Suk and I were invited to attend [the dinner]. After eating and drinking with others who had been invited, Yang Hyun Suk and I left first.
At that time, I thought of [the dinner] as a meeting with a friend who came from a faraway country.
I apologize for the inconvenience I have caused with this matter."
