Where would PSY be without the object of his scorn?

Your Dec. 11 editorial “PSY: Foreign policy, Gangnam-style” is way off base in trying to rationalize PSY’s anti-American song that he sang in 2004, early in his career. PSY had the good fortune of growing up under the US security umbrella in South Korea and attending Berklee College of Music in Boston. Had he grown up “North Korean-style,” he likely would have been so busy on a daily basis trying to find food and avoid starvation that we never would have heard of him.

Did he ever write any songs criticizing the unspeakable atrocities just over the border from his homeland?
