'Gangnam Style' singer Psy has shown off his 'great' new look, having stunned fans with his dramatic weight loss.

Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, showed off his signature flamboyant dance moves in a recent Instagram video, dancing along to a new song by Hyuna, a singer signed to his agency P Nation.

In the short clip - which 43-year-old Psy captioned 'Love promoting my artist this way' - the South Korean superstar can be seen busting a move to Hyuna's track, which is called 'I'm Not Cool'.

But his 1.4 million Instagram followers weren't just interested in the singer's on-screen sashaying - they also noticed he looked slimmer, too.

Many commented on his weight loss, noting how different he looked to his 'Gangnam Style' heydey.

One wrote: "Psy looks great guys!!!"


Others also expressed concern - even including Hyuna, who said: "You have lost weight. Please take care. The fans will be sad."

Another worried fan added: "Sir? Why are you so tiny now? Are you ok? Hope you're always healthy...."

Psy later replied to some of the weight-related comments, saying to one person: "Sorry, I will manage my weight."

K-Pop sensation Psy is best known for his 2012 hit 'Gangnam Style', having made his way onto wedding dance floors across the globe with his trademark moves.


The song was so popular that it was even the first ever video to hit one billion views on YouTube.

Speaking to Billboard in 2017, Psy reflected on the track and how it became such a huge hit.

He said: "I didn't have any international fans at that point, so I didn't expect anything global.

"I just did what I've done before. I was a Korean singer and whenever I released an album, the purpose of it was just to make good songs in Korean, and hopefully to make a hit song that people in Korea could enjoy. That was everything."

He continued: "I still don't know why it was so special. If I knew why, I could make it again and again. After five years later, I still have to talk about 'Gangnam Style'.


"If I did it intentionally, it wouldn't work as strongly. Right now, these days when I make music or music videos, I try my best to focus and to become [like] me from before "Gangnam Style." Not to do something intentionally. Doing it with intention takes a lot of effort for things to be natural, so that's what I've felt for the last five years."

Psy parted ways with the label YG Entertainment in 2018 after being signed for eight years, eventually founding his own record agency P Nation in 2019.

He then went on to sign a number of high profile Korean artists, including 28-year-old singer Hyuna, who left her previous label Cube Entertainment.
