Dennis Rodman gets a geography lesson from 'the Gangnam Style dude'

The former NBA star is in North Korea — which is not the same country as South Korea.

DENNIS RODMAN’S COLOURFUL tweets from the heart of North Korea appear to have upset South Korea’s best known cultural export, the “Gangnam Style” rapper Psy.

In one of several tweets since he arrived in Pyongyang with members of the Harlem Globetrotters, the former NBA star wondered if he might meet up with Psy during his stay in the North.

“Maybe I’ll run into the Gangnam Style dude while I’m here,” he tweeted.

Whether Rodman was joking or not, Psy clearly decided he needed to be set right on the geo-politics of the divided Korean peninsula, and which side he hailed from.

“@dennisrodman I’m from #SOUTH man!!!” the singer retorted on his twitter feed earlier today.

Psy, who has been on a constant world tour since his Gangnam Style video became the viral hit of 2012, was in his home country on Monday performing at the inauguration of South Korea’s new president Park Geun-Hye.

Here’s how North Korea’s state news agency KCNA reported Rodman’s arrival:
