Singer Psy, who entered the Korean music industry in 2001 with an unprecedented character, celebrated the 20th anniversary of his debut on the 18th.

The agency he is headed by, Pination, posted a video summarizing Psy’s past 20 years on social media and posted a post saying, “Congratulations on the 20th anniversary of Psy’s debut.”

Psy also celebrated its 20th anniversary by posting videos and photos of herself each year.

Psy, who announced her face with the title song’Bird’ of the first album’Psy from the Psycho World’, made a big repercussion with her unconventional costumes, dances, and lyrics that were hardly found at the time. For this reason, some people referred to him as a’geeky singer’ and treated him as an outsider.

However, Psy built up his own music world by releasing his 2nd and 3rd albums, and in particular, stood out in performances with his ability to dominate the stage by listening to the audience.

He has produced numerous hit songs such as’Champion’,’Celebrity’,’Light Now’,’Father’,’What Was It Like’,’New Face’, and’Bombal Pants’, most of which he made himself.

2012 was the biggest turning point in Psy’s career. It was a year when’Gangnam Style’ became a world star with tremendous success around the world.

This song sparked a wave of hitting second place on the American Billboard main single chart’Hot 100′, which was recognized by K-pop singers as’the barrier of evil’.

The music video was also a huge hit, pouring various records such as 1 billion views for the first time in YouTube history, the longest weekly views (36 weeks), and the number 1 annual views for two consecutive years.

As a result of these achievements, Psy was unexpectedly summoned to the US and signed a contract with a local management and label. Afterwards,’Gentleman’ and’Hangover’, etc., were not as influential as’Gangnam Style’, but they performed well.

His activities in the United States are evaluated to have opened the way for junior K-pop singers who will advance to the United States later by promoting K-pop in the United States and leaving success stories. This is why it is said that K-pop is divided into before and after’Gangnam Style’.

Psy is not releasing a new album for the last time she released her 8th album in 2017. Instead, he established an entertainment agency, Pination, to cultivate junior singers. Here, Hyuna, Dunn, Crush, Jesse, and Hayes belong.
