On May 9, many Harvard students will get to meet a familiar face at a special seminar. Psy will give a lecture on his cross-cultural YouTube hits "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman" and talk about the reason behind their successes as well as introduce the K-pop wave phenomenon and its context in the global entertainment industry.

For 90 minutes, Psy will delve into different aspects of his personal life and share the lessons he has learned from his initial struggles to be accepted in K-pop, the rapid success from "Gangnam Style," and dealing with pressures and burdens of trying to meet raised exectations.

The seminar will be held at 'Psy Hall.' Due to its modest size that holds only 200 seats, admission tickets are being drawn randomly on the school website. Just after 12 hours of sign-ups, there were over 1000 applicants and the number looks to increase even more before the close of the pool. Harvard's Korean Studies Department Chair Kim Sun Joo commented that Psy is hugely popular among the Harvard student population.

Last November, Psy was the first Korean artist to give a lecture at Oxford University in England. He shared the behind-the-scene stories about the music video of "Gangnam Style" and described his path to success-- before breaking out into his signature horse dance with a group of Oxford students after the lecture, that is.
