Park Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, unveiled portions of his new song “Good Day Will Come” during his live-streamed V show Saturday night.

Psy has revealed some tracks of his new album during his exclusive V show titled “Psy Little Television,” which started Tuesday. The six-day show will end Sunday night.

Introducing the song “Good Day Will Come,” which offers a hopeful message, he said, “This is a story I want to deliver to struggling people.”

He also shared his own struggles and how to overcome it.

“I was initially not able to overcome the weight (of making another hit song) as a producer of ‘Gangnam Style’ and couldn’t release any songs for the past two years,” he said.

“(Due to the pressure,) I lost interest in music and even thought of giving up making songs,” he said.

However, the singer eventually overcame the pressure with the thought that people can fall down, but if they keep down, that marks a failure.

During the show, Psy also read comments from his fans and chatted with them.

When a fan asked whether he thinks he is cool, the 37-year-old said, “All the celebrities may think they are handsome or pretty, but I have never thought that I look nice for the past 15 years.”

Still, he added, “But as a specialist, I once thought I was sexy.”

Psy is slated to unveil the songs and music videos of his seventh album on Dec. 1. He is also set to meet his fans at his three-day concert “All Night Stand 2015,” which kicks off on Dec. 24.

Wonder Girls’ Yubin, in a black jacket and with long blond hair, broadcast live on V from the backstage area of a concert for “Unpretty Rapstar.”

“We finished our concert at 4 p.m. and we are preparing for another one at 8 p.m.,” she said.

Saying she would show other members, Yubin went to 4Minute‘s Jiyoon’s dressing room.

When Yubin asked about her performance at the concert earlier at 4 p.m., Jiyoon said, “Fans looked excited and I am satisfied.”

Yubin then went to rapper Yezi from Fiestar. When the camera caught Yezi, she looked a little taken aback, asking: “Is it live?”

Queried about how she felt about her evening performance, Yezy said, laughing, “Are you ready to be crazy?”

Yubin said, “Yezi is charismatic on the stage, but she is originally cute.”

Rainbow’s Jisook hosted her show alone in a car en route to a broadcast station.

“I am now on my way to KBS to shoot for ‘Entertainment Weekly.’ Although most people leave their office now, I am going to the workplace.”

She then played the song of rookie girl group April, who also members of her agency.

Singing and dancing along to the song, she looked excited and added, “Their voices are so pretty.”

When a fan asked when they plan to drop a new album, she said, “It will not take a long time.”

Shinhwa’s Shin Hye-sung, wearing a black mask to cover his face, briefly made an appearance on V.

“Hi. I am here to see the performance of Dong-wan,” he said, in front of a concert poster featuring bandmate Kim Dong-wan.

“He doesn’t know I am here and I am going to ruin his performance by sitting in front and staring at him,” he giggled, before saying good-bye to his fans.
