When PSY brought "Gangnam Style" to Daegu Stadium
Last week saw the opening ceremonies of the week long Daegu National Sports Festival. These are week long national finals for competitors at the High School and College level in many disciplines outside of track and field.
The highlight and finale of the Opening Ceremonies of the Daegu National Sports Festival was a performance by internet and international megastar PSY performing his breakout hit "Gangnam Style"
The audience had been in wild anticipation all evening awaiting his arrival. There were already massive crowds backed up into the subway to get to the stadium to see the performance.
Far from being a "one hit wonder" his opening act was not 'Gangnam Style' and he proceeded to sing a variety of songs I'd never heard but the crowd seemed to be enjoying.
Some of the performers on the stadium field were allowed to surge to the stage and get a close up personal performance.
Police lines formed a ring around the other entrances to the field and sadly the officers had to stand with their back to the stage the whole time as they formed a human chain to stop others from rushing the field.
PSY was quite a performer and knew how to work the stage, moving to both sides to let fans and gathered media access him from all angles.
It was a great opening for what would end up being a highly entertaining week of sporting events.
