Psy “did every animal” before creating his infamous donkey dance

psy‘Gangnam Style’ hitmaker Psy says he experimented with “every animal” before coming up with his infamous donkey dance.

 

The ‘Gangnam Style’ hitmaker worked with a group of choreographers for a month on the catchy routine and admits the moves could have been very different if it hadn’t been for a chance viewing of a TV show.

 

He explained: “We did every animal. We did this slithering on the floor that we called the snake dance. Then someone turned on the TV and there was a horse galloping across a yard.”

 

The Korean pop star has found global fame thanks to the catchy track but admits it is exhausting travelling the world and he hasn’t seen his wife Yoo Hye-Yeon or their six-year-old twin daughters since April.

 

He told Sunday Times magazine: “I’ve visited 20 countries and 50 cities. I’m not scared but it’s too much. The flights!”

 

The 35-year-old singer smokes 60 cigarettes a day and confessed to drinking heavily.

 

He said: “If I’m happy I’m drinking. If I’m sad I’d drinking. If it’s raining, I’m drinking, if it’s sunny I’m drinking. If it’s hot, I’m drinking. If it’s cold, I’m drinking.”
