Psy’s Real Name and Wiki 

Psy is addressed formally as Park Jae-sang, a South Korean born on December 31, 1977, into an affluent family in the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea to parents Park Won-Ho; and Kim Young-hee; his mother.

Psy was a privileged kid who started elementary and middle school education when he should. He got enrolled in Banpo Elementary and Middle school and Shewa High School as at when due. While in school, he didn’t like it much but he was famous as the class clown. He found it very easy to drive the entire class to laugh at his jokes and this made him really popular. It is pain to see he had a thing for entertainment from way back in time.

Despite his disinterest in formal education, his parents were determined to ensure he got properly educated as he was the next in line to take over from his father as chairman of DI Corporation. He was sent to the US to study business administration at Boston University, but upon his arrival in the US, he lost interest in education and thus spent his remaining tuition funds in purchasing musical instruments, electric keyboard, computer, a MIDI interface and of course entertainment equipment. He still found it relevant to attend an English-language summer course and studied for one full semester there.

He finally dropped out of Boston University and enrolled at Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, he made good use of his time since he was now doing what he loved to do – Music. However, he later dropped out of Berkley and returned to South Korea to fully pursue a career as a singer. This decision marked the beginning of his career as a world-famous musician.
