He might be small, but his cameo in Psy's "Gangnam Style" music video was big enough to make him a star. Seven-year-old dance prodigy Hwang Min-woo is now known as "Little Psy" and has been tapped by South Korea's second biggest electronics company LG to be a brand ambassador. Despite all the attention, the pint-sized star says he is enjoying the limelight. SOUNDBITE: Hwang Min-woo, entertainer, saying (Korean): "People ask me if I'm tired of being on television too frequently, but I never get tired. I will just dance with joy and just go crazy with it." Recently, Hwang started taking professional lessons at a vocal and dance academy south of Seoul. "Little Psy" says he thinks he will become a bigger star than his namesake -- who just won Best Video at the recent MTV Europe awards. SOUNDBITE: Hwang Min-woo, entertainer, saying (Korean): "I will become a global star who is more famous than Psy. I will perform in the United States, London, France and the Philippines.
