Filipino fans dance with Psy in Manila concert

International Korean Pop singer Psy performed his Gangnam Style in front of thousands of Filipino fans at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday night.

The performances were opened by comedian Ai-Ai delas Alas with a sing-and-dance number of popular hits by Rihanna, Madonna, and 2NE1. She followed it up with her trademark stand-up comedy skit.

After Ai-Ai’s performance, it was the turn of Eat Bulaga’s co-hosts Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola to make the crowd laugh with their antics. They also performed their funny song-and-dance version of Rico J. Puno’s “Macho Guwapito” and Hagibis’ “Katawan.

At around 11 p.m., Psy appeared in an all-white outfit. The Korean rapper invited the participation of fans particularly with his trademark Gangnam Style. The audience requested for more so Psy repeated the Gangnam Style but requested the audience to stop recording his performance and instead, join him in singing and dancing.

The funny Korean pop entertainer did about seven numbers before ending the show.

Gangnam Style was released in July 2012 as the lead single of Psy’s sixth studio album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. It has achieved widespread international recognition and became the most viewed YouTube video, becoming the first one to gain a billion views on December 21 2012. Gangnam Style refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District of Seoul, one of the 25 local government districts which make up the city of Seoul, South Korea. The district is widely known for its heavily concentrated wealth and high standard of living, which has been compared to cities such as Beverly Hills, California.
