Gangnam Style: What You Need To Know

Gangnam Style by Psy is now officially on the US iTunes chart at No.1 beating out Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me” and Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake”. The music video has already reached over 45 million views in a little over one month on Youtube.

The Korean slang “Gangnam Style” refers to a luxurious lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district, an affluent and trendy area of Seoul, South Korea. The music video has Psy dancing at various locations in Gangnam. Apparently, the song’s theme is about “the perfect girlfriend who knows when to be refined and when to get wild.”

No, this isn’t a joke. This is K-Pop at its best. So prepare your soul for; the toilet scene, the new dance that is sure to take clubs by storm and the extremely catchy chorus that you’ll be singing while you shower. Here is “Gangnam Style“:

Meanwhile, Psy is in the United States to meet with Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepson for a possible collaboration for a remake of “Gangnam Style.”

And just in case you can’t get enough, “Oppa Is Just My Style,” is described as a “girl version” of Psy’s hit. Psy contributes backing vocals and air horse-riding, while Hyuna does the cutesy flirtatious bubblegum K-pop thing throughout the video:

  1. “Gangnam Style” has been my BBM status for over a week now 🙂 Thanks for the background info. Was wondering what it meant and why we’re doing air horse-riding now.
