The singer reenacts a viral girl group performance at his concert, All Night Stand, every year. Last year he transformed into popular idol and “Gangnam Style” guest star Hyuna, for her wildfire track “Red.” With his red leotard, tights, and giant banana, it seemed like a difficult performance to beat—but he did it.
This year’s version includes a skin-tight yellow-and-black outfit (sans tights, to show off Psy’s surprisingly toned legs) complete with fake boobs that shoot fireworks.
Psy’s performance has elicited a lot of positive reactions from fans, with many hoping for a response from EXID themselves.
It’s not unusual for male K-pop stars to dance to girl group songs, especially in variety shows. EXID’s “Up and Down” proved a favorite among male idols, with members from top groups like BTS and Got7 dancing their own renditions.
Here’s the original version. Looks like Psy could fit in with the five EXID girls just fine.
