PSY is back with a new song, signature dance and funny music video.

We can pretty much guarantee lightning won't strike twice for the Korean pop star, but "Gentleman" could still be successful as a follow-up to "Gangnam Style."

With PSY's catchy beat, outlandish outfits, trademark shades, absurd visuals and wooing of K-pop star Ga-In (of girl group Brown Eyed Girls) it's worth watching:

The song was released last week, but on Saturday, 35-year-old unveiled the video for "Gentleman," live on YouTube from Seoul's World Cup Stadium.

As for the signature move, it's more subtle than last year's dance craze.

Instead of riding an invisible horse a la "Gangnam Style," he's just got a smooth hip-swaying, pelvic thrust action going on. Maybe a modest letdown there?

Eh, he's got 32 million views in as many hours. Man knows what he's doing.

The Korean phenomenon is back, baby!

That's South Korea, Dennis Rodman.

"Gangnam Style" rapper PSY has released his new song "Gentleman," and while its fast and familiar beat isn't quite as catchy as his mega-hit, be forewarned:

He's unveiling the song and a dance affiliated with it live on YouTube Saturday at Seoul World Cup Stadium. So we ain't seen nothin' yet. But here's the song:

PSY will probably never top 2012's "Gangnam Style" as long as he lives, but he certainly knows how to get his new single the most exposure he can.

The Korean rapper/K-pop entertainer’s dance tune - maybe you heard it - has garnered over 2 billion views on YouTube, the most of any video. Ever.

So what better place to debut his follow-up?

He plans to introduce his new tune, "Gentleman," via a live, streamed concert from Seoul's World Cup Stadium that will begin 5:30 a.m. EDT Saturday.

Will it be any good? We'll have to find out!

NBA Hall of Famer slash cross-dressing wild man Dennis Rodman is in North Korea filming a basketball documentary of some kind. That's crazy enough.

Leave it to The Worm to give us even more fodder, however.

Rodman, upon arriving in the communist dictatorship, remarked that maybe he'll see the "Gangnam Style" dude (a.k.a. PSY) while he's there.

Mmmyeah.

Yesterday was PSY's 35th birthday, and one the Korean rapper will never forget.

As December 31 drew to a close, PSY and special guest Hammer reprised their epic American Music Awards performance with another joint effort in Times Square.

Watch the awesomely odd couple's Gangnam Style / 2 Legit 2 Quit mashup:

Two main takeaways from their New Year's Rockin' Eve 2013 performance:

  1. Hammer is 50! And still has pretty unreal dance moves and pants.
  2. PSY's semi-botched English interview was awfully endearing.

If he is retiring the song after this, he went out on a positive note.

Happy birthday to the "Gangnam Style" performer!

In 2012, the rapper went from being unknown outside of his native Korea to a genuine global superstar, thanks entirely to his international hit song.

"Hit" may be the understatement of all time.

PSY, President Obama. President Obama, PSY.

In the spirit of the holidays, the Washington establishment appears to have forgiven the "Gangam Style" sensation for his controversial 2004 anti-American rap.

Obama Meets PSY

PSY apologized Friday for participating in a pair of President George W. Bush-era protests, during which he rapped highly inflammatory lyrics and anti-war sentiments.

Then he appeared as scheduled at the annual Christmas in Washington concert.

He met President Barack Obama face-to-face and performed for the Commander-in-Chief, with the lyrics tweaked for the occasion as "Christmas Style."

"Gangnam Style" rapper PSY is in hot water over anti-American statements and lyrics he belted out at a 2004 anti-war protest concert came to light.

Among the incendiary lyrics: "Kill those f--king Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives / Kill those f--king Yankees who ordered them to torture."

"Kill their daughters, mothers, daughter-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully."

Yeah. Not good.

PSY, who has performed for U.S. troops in 2012 and is scheduled to perform later this month for President Barack Obama, quickly apologized and explained.
