The Early Years
Though he didn’t become famous until 2012 he released his first album in 2001. He proceeded to release five more over the years. He has been appearing on TV in Korea since 2000. AT that time a producer noticed Psy for his dance moves. When he released his first two albums both were faced with controversy. His lyrics and dance moves were considered to be inappropriate by the South Korean government, who fined him over the album’s content. His second album was criticized by civil groups. They were convinced that his music would negatively influence young people. As a result, those under the age of 19 were not allowed to purchase the album.
Psy had better luck with the release of his third album. The title song on the album was very successful. This is thought to be because the World Cup games drew attention to it. He went on to receive a music award for this album.
The Later Years
After running into financial trouble, Psy joined an entertainment label run by a friend. Once again, when Psy released an album in 2010 it was not permitted to be sold to those under 19. This time it was because the lyrics of one song were considered obscene. Two years later he would release the album that would put him in the spotlight. The album included Gangnam Style. After the success of the song Psy felt that it would be difficult to top it. In 2015 he went on to release his seventh studio album.
