Pyongyang, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea—A spokesman for Kim Jong-un confirmed yesterday that the North Korean Leader has filed a civil lawsuit against South Korean recording artist Psy for allegedly stealing the lyrics and the horse dance made popular in the video for Psy’s worldwide smash hit, “Gangnam Style.” The suit said that Kim Jong-Il wrote the lyrics to the song and made up the popular horse dance just days before he passed away on Sept. 17th of last year.

“Before his honorable and heroic death last year,” the suit said, “the Supreme Leader wrote the words to ‘Gangnam Style’ in under five minutes as a joke to his family, and also created the horse dance that the defendant so blatantly stole, also to show to his family. There was video of the Supreme Leader singing and dancing at dinner just before he passed away, and it is believed the defendant stole that video as well.”

A government spokesman also said that if Psy doesn’t return to North Korea immediately to face this lawsuit, a warrant will be issued for his arrest. A trial is scheduled for tomorrow, and could last up to a week.

Psy, 34, has seen his popularity skyrocket throughout the world after his video for “Gangnam Style” went viral, with almost 600 million YouTube views. Psy has said that he wrote the song himself and also choreographed the dance seen in the video. Representatives for Psy could not be reached for comment on the lawsuit.

Update: Psy has been found guilty of stealing the lyrics of “Gangnam Style” from Kim Jong-Il and has been sentenced to 75 years hard labor, and fined $250,000,000.00. A warrant has been issued for his arrest by the North Korean Government, and they are expected to seek assistance from Scotland Yard, Interpol and the CIA in Psy’s capture.

Second update: Just before we posted this, the North Korean government announced they have arrested Psy all on their own in Los Angeles and he is currently in prison in North Korea. His appeals have been denied, and he has begun serving his sentence.

  1. I seem to feel that the TRUTH which comes from North Korea government spokespersons might be a tad off the edge. I doubt they could find Psy in L.A.

    • Thank you for your comment. It is our understanding that the law enforcement agencies acting in North Korea are the best in the world. If they want to hunt down Psy, it would not take them very long at all. Keep that in mind.

      You are now informed. Go and do likewise.

  2. If Psy is now sentenced to 75 years of hard labor, how did he dance in front of millions of people on New Years Eve? And if he was, wouldn’t North Korea’s dictator be dancing for us instead? This article has many factual errors, keeping in mind the many number of performances Psy did after this article was posted.

    • Thank you for your comment. This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her and her information about the North Korean government’s attempts to arrest Psy. To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone’s sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating. It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of Psy’s tremendous increase in popularity in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life. I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and TDQ fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been. In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was. Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I’m looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing our next book.

      You are now informed. Go and do likewise.

  3. you’re brilliant and you will get good luck for telling it like it is #karma

  4. Wow, I can’t believe it. Some people are stupid enough to believe that this is true. *The site is called the Daily Quarterly *The top of the page is obviously satirical *The picture is photoshopped *There is no music in North Korea *How could they find PSY in LA? Well, actually, he’s in LA now, but back when this article was made, he was in Gangnam.
