(Newser) – Maybe he'll want to think twice about lip-syncing, but PSY is giving his native South Korea a little Gangnam style for its upcoming presidential inauguration. It's actually unclear whether his horse-riding romp will make the cut (he has other songs?), but he's confirmed to perform at the February 25 inaugural of president-elect Park Geun-hye. South Korea is really digging its native son, notes France 24: PSY was in November awarded the nation's highest cultural honor, the Okgwan Order of Cultural Merit.
