'Kill Those F---ing Yankees': PSY's Anti-U.S. Past Surfaces

"Kill them all slowly and painfully," the artist rapped at a 2004 anti-U.S. protest concert.

South Korean pop sensation PSY, aka Park Jae-sang -- might have won Americans over with his infectious breakthrough single, "Gangnam Style," but has America won him over? The singer will be forced to face those kinds of questions as several anti-American protest performances from his past have begun to surface.

At a 2002 concert staged in opposition to 37,000 U.S. troops stationed on the Korean Peninsula, Mediate reports, PSY took to the stage in gold face paint and a glittery red outfit, then lifted a model U.S. tank over his head before smashing it to pieces on the ground. The performance was a response to the death of two Korean school girls, killed in an accident with an American military vehicle, according to Korean website BusanHaps.com.

Then, two years later, a South Korean missionary was executed in Iraq -- a revenge killing for the country's support of the U.S. war in Iraq. During a protest concert, PSY rapped on the song "Dear American," "Kill those f---ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those f---ing Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully."

PSY has appeared on Ellen and the Today show in support of his smash hit song, which has been downloaded 3 million times on iTunes, is the most-viewed video in YouTube history and has earned him more than $8 million, according to some estimates.

I am the opposite of you. I didn't get into 1D untill around the end of September, and was refusing to like them.... And then I decided to at least learn their names and faces because for the past year or so that friend who likes Zayn and T.O.P was talking about them a lot... and... and.. I JUST WANTED TO KNOW WHO SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT OKAY BUT I WATCHED ONE INTERVIEW AND FELL INTO A BOTTOMLESS PIT.... but I regret nothing.... Except for discovering the Larry shippers on tumblr.. I guess that is regretful... I really could have gone a whole lifetime without learning of their existence.

Oh god did he get even more tattoos? I haven't really paid attention to them for a week, though I have to say I am pretty pressed at the majority of their tattoos in general. But I agree that T.O.P is pretty flawless..... but I tend to like awkward people... I would say he is probably the most attractive k-popper I stan though.... I basically like all of kpop though..... It sucked me in long long ago.... and I haven't been able to escape.... so GOOD LUCK.....

Well that should give you hope. Sorry about that.
