Psy

I Will NOT Sue

'Gangnam Style' Restaurant

EXCLUSIVE

1129_GAGNAM_STYLE_RESTURAUNT
"Gangnam Style" singer Psy will NOT sue an L.A. restaurant for naming itself after the famous song -- in fact, Psy's pumped ... because as far as he's concerned ... imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

The Koreatown restaurant was previously known as Soju Town -- but it re-opened last month after a brief closure under its new name "Gangnam Style," clearly an homage to the popular song.

The restaurant never bothered to get Psy's permission to use the name -- but sources close to the singer tell TMZ, he doesn't give a crap ... because where he comes from, imitation is a form of honor.

We're told Psy's team briefly considered legal action when they caught wind of the new restaurant, but since Psy doesn't care ... they don't plan to pursue anything. 

Oppa!

Look at all these haters on here!!! What was originally suppose to be only viewed in Korea became a sensation worldwide. Don't go around hating on the man just because he has more success and represents himself with class unlike most of you bums on this forum.

Is he actually sure that they named their restaurant after him. Maybe he shouldn't be so quick to flatter himself.

On Lindey Lohan -STOP! She still is a human being with a lot of problems instead of being the problem be the solution! She has NO ONE in her corner, no Role model or normal audult's in her life! She grew up and had to be the adult at 9 YEARS OLD! I get it I have very loving parents but I had to grow up at a very young age! BUT they let me be a kid first and grow. It's just very sad she is a MEAL TICKET FOR FOR THEM & MONEY AND FAME TO HER PARENTS! SHAME ON THE BOTH OF YOU! GET HELP TO HELP YOUR DAUGHTERS!
