Singer Psy (real name Park Jae-sang, 44 years old) unveiled his text messages with Swings (real name Moon Ji-hoon, 36 years old).
On November 26th, Psy posted a photo on his Instagram and wrote, “Let’s work Jihoon ah. Work SWINGS work”.
The released photo contained a capture of the message conversation between Psy and Swings. Psy asked, “Do you come to the company today?”, “No hyungnim! Is there any problem?ㅋㅋㅋ” Then Psy emphasized, “What problemㅠNothing. Make a plan. If you write something, I will read it and listen to it. Let’s work, Jihoon ah”, and urged Swings to work. Then, Swings answered, “ㅋㅋㅋㅋOkay hyungnim. I will start writing (songs) now. I want to let you hear it without feeling embarrassed ㅋㅋㅋ”.
Psy made everyone burst into laughter by replying, “Too shy to ride you chuckling.” Swings also added fun with his answer, “Ah…my heart…” On the same day, Swings uploaded a mirror selfie on his personal SNS along with a caption saying, “I’m not a rapper. I’m just a businessman, but I’m one of those people who are good at rapping.”
Swings signed an exclusive contract with P Nation, Psy’s agency, in April. The rapper revealed the story behind this, “As I did not originally have any relations to Psy, I asked around in my acquaintance circles in order to obtain his contact information. On the day we met, we signed a verbal contract while having a glass of soju.”
Meanwhile, since his debut with the EP album “UPGRADE” in 2008, Swings has established himself as a representative rapper of the Korean hip-hop scene by presenting his strong rap style and punchline lyrics through hit songs such as “On My Way” and “Are You Listening?”.
