The 34-year-old rapper has revealed that when he was getting his start in the industry in 2001, record company bosses ordered him to get plastic surgery to make him better looking.
"The agency heard my raps and were picturing a six-foot tall, sharp-looking, trendy guy," Psy told Huffington Post.
"But the CEO opened our meeting with the statement, 'What are we going to do with this'? Staff said, 'How about we make him wear a cool mask'? Everyone was coming up with solutions to my 'looks problem'.
"They said, 'How about a bit of plastic surgery here and there'? The CEO's response to that was, 'Just a bit'?"
"In the end they reached no conclusions and just walked out of the room."
Look who's laughing now: Psy has six albums to his name and has been a huge star in the K-Pop scene for more than 10 years. 'Gangnam Style' has gone number one in 33 countries, and the colourful clip has racked up nearly 360 million views on YouTube.
Psy will bring his snappy outfits and killer dance moves to Australia for a promo tour starting October 15.
