    PSY is not underground.

    I thought it was brilliant – until someone wrecked it for me by directing me to the remarkably similar Sexy And I Know It. Still a fun watch.

    Agreed—Gangnam Style needed more Ron Jeremy.

    It got viral on reddit man.

    That was fun. That horse-riding dance was popular back in high school. The “pony dance” I think it was called. I did a version of it myself though it probably looked more like the “jackass dance.”

    “Underground”? I had dinner with him after his performance at a corporate employee recognition function in Seoul. Very funny guy.

    Watched the video, but too much imagery. Kangnam is a diverse and big place. How would Kangnam Style be written in words? I’m coming away with saucy imprudent lasses.

    Is PSY hip-hop? The music sounded like electro-dance pop. Good song though.

    Where are the parodies, oppa pyongyang-style and oppa itaewon-style?

    I wouldn’t hold my breath for that first one. Remember?

    He’s most certainly not underground. He does too many TV appearances and product endorsements for that. Also, I thought he quit Berklee to pursue his music career.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Psy, who’s very critical of K-pop for its cookie-cutter approach to music, became the first real “Hallyu star” in North America?

    @someguy – problem being, if Youtube hits a hallyu star make, Hyuna’s already done it with “Bubble Pop”

    Hoju Saram’s right that it’s quite reminiscent of LMFAO. Perhaps it was intentional – when was the last time a few unattractive dudes stretched a good hook and a tacky look quite as far as LMFAO did in pop music, thanks to a well-executed, winking video?

  • CactusMcHarris

    I’m rocking Kamloops-style to it, and yoga booty to boot!

    I think this song sounds a lot like LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’, of which someone created a hilarious North Korean themed video to go along with the music – Keep on Party Rockin’ in the ROK and the DPRK – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJNBfBr-OGU

    Eye Opener, a Houston-centric breakfast show, also had the Gangnam style: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqOAWmxrFac

    Oh yes indeedy hoju_saram I can see how easy it’s to confuse that waggling your dong clip, as being remarkable similar to the horse dance in Psy’s MV, I don’t think! Chuh!

    The Hongdae style fan version is hilarious.


    Reminds me of how much I miss going to Busan.
