Gangnam Style Star Shares Alcohol Problem

The Korean singer known for his infectiously peppy songs and even more catchy dance moves has revealed a deeper side.

He recently admitted that his days are almost completely consumed by alcohol consumption. In an interview with the U.K.’s Sunday Times, he shared that he drinks all the time.

You may be envisioning the pop singer drinking every evening or while partying with friends. Yes, he drinks at those times. But, according to him, he literally drinks at all times of the day, regardless of the weather, his mood or any other factor. He said,

“If I’m happy, I’m drinking, if I’m sad, I’m drinking. If it’s raining, I’m drinking, if it’s sunny I’m drinking. If it’s hot, I’m drinking, if it’s cold, I’m drinking.”

Psy: The Man Behind The Music

Psy Alcohol Problem

Who is this man, other than a rapper who introduced the world to a new dance through a viral video?

His real name is Park Jae-sang. The 35-year-old star became a household name last year when his Gangnam Style song and dance moves went viral on YouTube. You’ve probably seen the video. Admit it- you’ve probably tried the horse-riding dance move, too.

Troubled Past

In the interview, Psy revealed that he did not have a healthy relationship with his father. He said that abuse carried out into his young adult life.

Psy also revealed that he has had trouble with the law before. He was arrested at age 23 for possession.

A Lesson for Us

Psy’s relationship with alcohol is hardly a glamorous one. In fact, it sounds pretty miserable. He said that the only time he doesn’t drink is when he is hungover. I can’t imagine that switching between both states is enjoyable.

Psy claims that vodka is his best friend. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to have a few real people on my list of best friends above vodka. Psy’s story also teaches an important lesson. While it seems that this world-famous singer has made it big and is living the dream, it only takes a little digging to find an unfortunate secret. Many of us have similar secrets, hiding alcohol abuse or drug addiction.

    Sad to hear about such an unfortunate upbringing for him. Glad he’s made himself better by recognizing these problems.

  4. Psy is such a character. Glad to see he was able to put the past behind him and tackle his dreams!!

  5. It’s a shame he didn’t have a great relationship with his father, but it’s also great that he’s learned from his past.

  6. I’ll admit it. I tried the dance. I’ll never do it again.

    I never knew he struggled as a youngster, but then again I don’t really know anything about this guy.

    I can’t begin to imagine what a lifestyle where you drink all day every day must be like, not one I would ever want to live!

  12. TITLE Boxing Club Edmond 14 August 2013 at 2:46 pm #
