Most of us take the whole Psy episode in good spirit. Even BN should be given a credit for bringing the Gangnam style sensation to Penang. It was a good opportunity to see Psy sing and dance in person because it helped us to better understand the euphoria about the Gangnam style K-pop song.
It was meant to be light hearted when Psy failed to appear on stage for the "lou sang" tossing ceremony. We laughed about it but mostly of us felt that it was a major coordination mistake made by the event organizer for failing to notify and coordinate Psy's appearance on stage.
Some of us agreed that it was not proper for Psy not to appear briefly on stage even if he may not want to participate in the "lou sang" tossing ceremony. PM Najib was a guest of honour and it was an acceptable practice for artistes to appear briefly for photo taking opportunity.
It was still tolerable for some to make fun of PM Najib in his embarrassing attempt to seek a positive response from the crowd when he asked if they were ready for BN. If anything, it was a poor PR coordination by the organizing committee. Despite the desperation of wanting to project the PM as a cool leader, it is very important to ensure that he appears dignified and respectable.
However, it is a serious matter when Gerakan's Teng Chang Yeow alleges that there was an attempt on K-pop sensation Psy's life that forced organisers to call off plans to have the singer participate in a "yee sang" tossing ceremony with Barisan Nasional (BN) dignitaries during the coalition's recent Chinese New Year open house.
