It must be a slow news week here in the United States because apparently the Psy story is all over TV. Turns out back in 2002 the up and coming rapper recorded a song with Korean Heavy Metal Band (yes there is such a thing!) N.E.X.T. called Dear American in which he called on the killing of "Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives." Why would Psy have such harsh words for is future audience? Well Brendan Spaar investigated and found that two South Korean middle school girls were killed by American troops shortly before the song was recorded. Their deaths were the result of a horrible accident but it fueled Anti American sentiment at the time. Apparently it is really good for your career if you bash America over in South Korea so Psy may have recorded this song for notariety and popularity. Does Psy hate America or is he simply seizing on an opportunity to make up for his limited talent? Look at his latest hit Gangnam Style and decide.
