I feel kind of bad for Psy. He clearly has only a tenuous grasp on the English language, but people keep calling him onto English television for things.
I feel bad, then I remember he has made so much money and gotten very famous all with one song relatively few listeners actually understand.
Hard to feel bad after that.

You know he went to college in America? And is completely fluent in English?

I'd say his English is better than some of our youth today.

It says he attended an English language Summer course, so I suppose for only having taken one class to learn English, his English is pretty good.

He lived in the US for many years. Just because he has an accent and talks slower doesn't mean he doesn't know the language.

It's not that he talks slower and has an accent, it's that the way he words things is strange. Like last night, he was on some television station that was broadcasting the ball dropping, and they asked him about how this celebration compared to other celebrations around the world. He said something like "I must say that of all place sin the world energy and emotion like this I have never seen".
It still makes sense, it's just strangely worded.
Which is understandable, since it's not his first language.
But now that I checked other interviews and the like, he sounds much better.

1, He was probably drunk.   
2, English is one of the only languages that grammatical syntax where the description word comes before the item/object.    
   
Ex: In English:  "This is my red ball, and I have never seen a better ball in my life."   
In pretty much EVERY OTHER LANGUAGE if you translate it to English, sounds like this:   
   
"This (is) my ball red, and such a great ball like this I have never seen."
