The statue is worth how much!? If you remember correctly, back in 2012, Psy shocked the world with his single "Gangnam Style", which swept charts all over the world. Psy was essentially a global phenomenon, and now South Korea boasted one of the most successful global artists in history. In recognition of this amazing accomplishment by Psy, the South Korean government has decided to place a "Gangnam Style" golden sculpture that is worth approximately 400,000,000 KRW or approximately $357,000 US Dollars!
In response to the statue, Psy gave his thoughts on it. Psy claimed that it was an honor that South Korea granted him a statue, however he said that he was merely doing his job. He claimed that he was not doing it for the country, just merely doing it because he is an artist. He believed that the song was a hit because of the timing the song was released.
What do you think of the statue?
