UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has given PSY's "Gangnam Style" his stamp of approval, calling the song a force for world peace.
Ban is pleased to see the fellow South Korean breaking down language barriers, allowing for an exchange of culture the country hasn't had the opportunity to do before on such a large scale.
"There are no languages required in the musical world. That is the power of music, that is the power of the heart. Through this promotion of arts we can better understand the culture and civilizations of other people. In this era of instability and intolerance we need to promote better understanding through the power of music," Ban told the AFP.
The UN Secretary General is also a fan of the song, stating that he's watched the video several times, enjoying it not only for promoting a better understanding of South Korean culture, but for its entertainment value as well.
