Gangnam Thailand Extra Live Concert

Posted on November 20, 2012


International pop sensation Psy, whose dance hit single “Gangnam Style” sparked a global craze, has been confirmed to perform in Thailand on Nov 28, RS Fresh Air, the event-organising unit of entertainment company RS Plc, said.

The 34-year-old South Korean rapper (real name Park Jae Sang) will appear in the ”Gangnam Thailand Extra Live Concert”, which will be his first live concert in Asia, at the 30,000-seat SCG Stadium in Muang Thong Thani, Nonthaburi province, RS CEO Vinij Lertratanachai told a Channel 3 entertainment news programme on Tuesday.

Asked how he could get Psy, who will arrive Thailand on Nov 27, to accept his invitation despite his very tight schedule, Mr Vinij said his company together with Universal Music Thailand had spent two months in contacting the Korean singer and his management team in the United States.

He said the most important reason for Psy and his team to respond to the invitation was because they wanted to join Thais in celebrating and sending good wishes to His Majesty the King on the auspicious occasion of his 85th Birthday on Dec 5.

He said Psy’s presence will also be part of celebrations of the Loy Krathong Festival, scheduled for Nov 28 this year.  He will be joined by Thai rapper Joey Boy, Sing Nua Sua Tai, DJ SpiderMonkey and two other entertainers from South Korea.

There is no admission charge because the concert is supported by eight sponsors including Air Asia, Yamaha, Coca-Cola and True Corporation, among others. Interested persons are encouraged to participate in activities organised by the sponsors or check out conditions laid out by each sponsor, Mr Vinij added.


  • According to @porplatong, the first 1,500 people who buy a domestic ticket for Thailand on Air Asia starting tonight will get a free ticket. I checked Air Asia website but couldn’t see anything about this.
  • Coca Cola will have activities on 23rd November from 3pm at Parc Paragon where you will be able to get tickets
  • Most sponsors will do activities and will give more information on their Facebook pages
