Man leaves suicide note requesting Gangnam Style funeral

Korean rapper Psy performed his viral hit Gangnam Style at Marina Bay Sands on Dec 1.

SIHANOUKVILLE, Cambodia - A man left a suicide note requesting a Gangnam Style funeral before committing suicide by drinking poison, police said Wednesday.

Police said the victim, 24-year-old Sok Udom from Prey Nob district, had been criticized by his parents for staying out late after recently returning from working in Thailand.

His body was found 30 meters from his house in O'Chhrov commune on Wednesday morning.

"When I die, you can hold a ceremony if you have money but don't if you don't have any money," the note said.

"Please play traditional wedding songs and Gangnam Style instead of funeral music."
