Psy is the Korean that most foreigners want to meet
According to a survey undertaken by travel specialist Cosmojin Tour, singer Psy is the Korean that foreigners would most like to meet.
The travel agency announced the results Aug. 30, taken from a survey that ran between Aug. 23 and 24; more than 150 individuals had taken part in the online questionnaire.
“Psy received 56 percent of the votes,” said a spokesperson from Cosmojin.
Trailing behind the “Gangnam Style” singer was soccer player Park Ji-sung (17%), President Lee Myung-bak (12%) and figure skate Kim Yu-na (9%).
When questions when further by asking respondents why they wanted to meet those people, the answers were not all that surprising.
Seventy-two percent said “because they are famous,” while 19 percent and 7 percent said “out of curiosity” and “to make them my role model.”
Psy’s fame knows no bounds. Just days ago Britney Spears mentioned the K-pop singer’s video on Twitter and asked, “Anybody wanna teach me?”
