Psy Opens Up About Family In Recent Interview: Rapper Discusses Wife and Twin Daughters

By Staff Reporter | May 22, 2013 03:26 PM EDT


Psy credits his wife and twin daughters for providing the support he needs for his international success, according a recent interview with Channel NewsAsia.

"[Gangnam Style] was a literal miracle, and miracles never happen twice," said the South Korean rapper.

"I got to move on. I cannot live with 'Gangnam Style' forever."

And such success has often kept Psy busy and away from his family, wife of seven years Yoo Hye-Yeon and four-year-old twin daughters.

"My wife looks at the person Park Jae Sang and the singer who goes up on stage Psy as different people," he said on the South Korean cable show "Healing Camp."

"She is the type of wife that all men are envious of."

With Psy's meteoric rise in fame over the past year, his family was forced to adjust to the sudden change in their lives.

"They know the word concert. So, they know [their] father's job is concert," he said during a Ryan Seacrest interview.

"They prefer concert than father."

According to, whenever Psy goes home his daughters say, "Dad, let's live together now."

But the father-of-two can only be grateful for his unusual lifestyle.

Despite being away due to recent promotional activities for "Gentleman," Psy still managed to earn his daughters' affections when they saw him "flying" in the air during a concert a Seoul last month.

"They mom spent most of her life on them and I was flying to this country, that country. Then I just 'fly' once and they love me more," mused the international superstar.

"Life is not fair you know."

But Psy, the family man and celebrity, has much to be thankful for.
