Can You Cook Gangnam Style? Psy Is Looking for a Personal Chef (Video)

Forget Iron Chef and The Taste. Here's a cooking competition almost anyone can win with an actual payday at the end.

Korean pop star Psy is doing a worldwide search for a personal chef who will travel with him on tour for one month -- yes, you will travel Gangnam style.

Don't worry; Psy put together this little musical video to let you know what you need to do.

Korean restaurant, bibigo, is assisting in helping Psy find just the right chef and then will spend two weeks training that person just right.

It seems relatively simple. Upload a video showing of your mad bibi (Korean for mixing) skills to bibigo's Facebook. Details of the three finalists will be posted to Facebook on May 20.

On May 20, the top three finalists will be selected and announced on Psy Go, Bibigo's Facebook page. Then, on June 3, bibigo will announce the winner of the Psy Go, Bibigo talent search based on Psy's opinion and an online poll hosted on PsygoBibigo.com.

The winning chef will travel the world with Psy for one month, receive $40,000, and live like a rock star with five-star accommodations and transportation. (So now we all know exactly what Gangnam consists of, in case we were still wondering.)

Visit psygobibigo.com to get the full contest rules and details. Follow Psy on Twitter, @psy_oppa.
