Imposter lives it up at Cannes posing as Korean pop star Psy

Getty ImagesThis is the real Psy; or maybe not?

A man impersonating the Korean pop star Psy lived it up in Cannes, and the story is hilarious.

The stocky Asian imposter in big sunglasses showed up at various restaurants and clubs and surrounded himself with security guards complete with earpieces and dark shades, according to the New York Post.

He scammed a ton of free drinks and even booked a show. The jig was up when the real Psy tweeted someone in France and said that he was actually in L.A. “Say Hi to him… lol,” he added.
