Meanwhile, PSY has told how music bosses urged him to undergo cosmetic surgery to enhance his looks before he found fame.

The hitmaker admits he was horrified when label chiefs demanded he undergo a drastic image overhaul.

He recalls, "The agency heard my raps and were picturing a six-foot tall, sharp-looking, trendy guy. But the CEO opened our meeting with the statement, 'What are we going to do with this?' Staff said, 'How about we make him wear a cool mask?'

"Everyone was coming up with solutions to my 'looks problem'. They said, 'How about a bit of plastic surgery here and there?'

"The CEO's response to that was, 'Just a bit?' In the end they reached no conclusions and just walked out of the room."
