Psy changes song title to avoid offense

Posted: Updated:
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA -

Psy is changing the title of his new song because it sounds great in Korean and not so good in English.

The title can be written in English as "Assarabia" or "Assaravia." It's slang that South Koreans use to express thrills.

However, Psy is concerned that it could offend Arabs, so he will change the title and some lyrics.
