The Smiths’ Love For YG “Psy, BigBang, 2NE1 Are The Best”
The father and son of the Smiths family showed special affection for YG Entertainment.
Will Smith, who was at the Conrad Seoul Hotel in Yeouido with his son for the press conference of “After Earth” (directed by Night Shyamalan) on May 7 said, “if you could make May 7 a public holiday or Willy Day, then I will visit Korea on the day every year.”
Will Smith and his son Jaden who landed at Kimpo Airport on May 5 for the promotion of the new film first made their appearance on the 7th at the press conference. In the evening of the same day they held a red carpet event at Seoul Yongdeongpo’s Time Square to meet their Korean fans. On the 6th, the father and son had a free day to tour around the country, which included visiting YG Entertainment to spend some quality time with BigBang, 2NE1 and other artists.
“After arriving in Korea we visited YG Entertainment yesterday. We met with a lot of artists including G-Dragon. The Korea we see from overseas is amazing and artistic. And it is full of creativity. I wanted to visit because Korean women are beautiful,” said Will Smith, and joked, “Korea feels like Psy’s ‘mother father gentleman’”.
His son commented, “I think BigBang, G-Dragon and 2NE1 are awesome. I think I can get something really creative working with them.”
The Smiths, when asked what they would do if the movie becomes a big success in Korea, mentioned the YG family.
“If the movie becomes a hit, I will come to Korea to sing with Psy. I will sing ‘mother father gentleman.’ I’ll release an album with him,” said Will Smith. His son added, “if the movie becomes a hit first I will move out of home. And I will work on an album with G-Dragon. Or I think the Smiths and YG Family can collaborate to produce an album. You can expect us to come back for more music related activities.”
The film “After Earth” is blockbuster film based on an adventurous fictional story of Cypher Raige (Will Smith) and Kitai (Jaden Smith) being stranded by a crash landing on Earth, 1,000 years after the cataclysmic event. Will Smith also participated in the making of the film. This is the first time the Smiths appeared in a movie together as the main characters in 7 years since “The Pursuit of Happyness” in 2006. The movie will be released on May 30 in Korea as one of the first countries in the world.

On May 9, Psy will be standing in front of a crowd from Harvard University in the United States to deliver a speech.
On its official website, Harvard posted on May 7, “Korean pop trailblazer PSY will speak at Harvard on Thursday. Best known for his 2012 smash hit “Gangnam Style,” the multiplatinum single that merged Korean flavor with global pop panache, PSY has mesmerized critics and fans worldwide with his enigmatic dance moves and unforgettable presence.”
Last November, Psy gave a speech in the prestigious Oxford University in England, and now he is in the United States for another opportunity.
Initially his special lecture was to be held in Tsai Auditorium, where it can hold 200 students within the Harvard Campus, but as more than 1,400 people submitted their application to attend the lecture, the entire event has been moved to the Memorial Church where 800 people can be seated. Memorial Church is a venue where world-renown people like Dalai Lama, Seth Macfarlane and former Vice President Al Gore delivered special lectures.
Psy received an invitation from Harvard, and he is planning on telling his story of the 13-year journey that put him on a global stardom.
Psy is currently in the United States. Apart from promoting his latest mega-hit song “Gentleman,” he has also received an award and met up with a fellow South Korean baseballer Ryu Hyun-jin, and has been appearing on American television shows. Recently he was on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Michael for an interview and to dance his “arrogant dance” along with his new song. Meanwhile, his new music video will soon reach 300 million views.
Psy’s special lecture will be held on May 9 at 6:30 p.m., and will be streamed online within Harvard’s streaming channel.
