There were no long queues and some came on their own or in groups.

But it's clear who and what they came for: a prized ticket to the free one-hour showcase performance by Korean superstar Psy this Saturday evening.

The 4,000 fans who were lucky enough to land a free ticket through Marina Bay Sands' (MBS) Facebook page promotion came to collect their coveted ticket in person on Wednesday at Marina Bay Sands' Expo Convention Hall from 12 to 9pm.

When Yahoo! Singapore was there from 11am to 1pm, mostly teens and some working adults turned up for ticket-collection process, which was largely quick and hassle-free.

Eugene Lim, a 21-year-old student, said he will be attending the showcase alone as he was the only one among his friends who managed to get the tickets.

"I'm not a K-pop fan but I like the song and dance, so I attended a dance lesson just to learn the 'horse dance'," Lim said.

Watch as some others had a go at doing the Gangnam Style. Lucky for them, they've got a few more days to practice ahead of the big performance on Saturday.
