A red Rolls-Royce carrying South Korean pop star Psy, best known for his hit single Gangnam Style, rear-ended a bus in eastern China on Thursday afternoon, according to mainland media.
Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, was frightened but not hurt. He was escorted away from the scene in a Porsche, according to Qianjiang Evening News.
No one was injured in the accident, which happened on a busy street in Hangzhou, Zhejiang at around 3pm. The Rolls-Royce was reportedly part of a motorcade taking the superstar from the airport to a hotel. Psy was in town for the launch party of a bar.
The bus driver called the traffic police, but later said he had negotiated compensation with the Rolls-Royce owner and was not pursuing the case.
Repairing the luxurious vehicle will cost about 700,000 yuan, according to Qianjiang Evening News.
In 2012, Psy’s Gangnam Style became the first video on Youtube to receive more than one billion views.
In April, South Korean media Aju Business Daily reported Psy had decided to focus on his career in China and had bought a house in Shanghai. The career move came after the singer’s Chinese single “Papa” became a big hit in the mainland.
