Psy attended the '2012 MTV Video Music Awards' and expressed his thoughts in Korean.

Psy and host Kevin Hart came onto the stage dancing to "Gangnam Style." With this surprise appearance, the crowd was shocked. Katy Perry and Rihanna's reactions were also seen on camera. 

Kevin Hart asked him how he felt for reaching 100 million views on Youtube, in which Psy replied in Korean. He said, "I am so happy. I've always wanted to speak in korean on a stage like this. Isn't it awesome?" 

Psy's "Gangnam Style" turned on once again and the two marched off stage doing the dance.

Psy's agency commented, "We knew that he wanted to do something fun while he was on stage but we had no idea that he would talk in korean. There were some rumors from MTV officials that he would talk in korean but we weren't sure. He also never uses the phrase, 'Isn't it awesome' and so we're not sure why he used it there."

Being the first korean artist to stand on that stage, he left a pretty lasting impression to the audience.

Psy has also recently signed a contract with Justin Bieber's agency.
