And in case you haven’t seen US Naval Academy cadets doing “Gangnam Style” yet…
Completely Random Crap, Korean Culture
Acting is OK.
Mouthing is way out.
Hahaha… I was gonna link this in the open thread… hahaha.
American broadcasters are even pronouncing “Gangnam” wrong – saying it as in “gang” – like a “gang of criminals” [ gang – num ]
White ajomma dancing “Gangnam Style.”
Really liked the cadet one. Go Navy!
they are annoying the Singaporeans…

its never ending…
last night i had to make a 3 am trip to the allnight walmart. guess whichc song was playing on the overhead? what’s with this song, man?
Ow, my ears hurt after watching this guy.
Who knew that Cartman was based on a real person?
Acting is good enough to fool plenty of people…
# 3 Jakgani,
Obviously Psy and his minions told them how to pronounce it, but they intentionally told them how to do so incorrectly in order for Koreans and/or people like you to laugh or call them stupid. Duh!
It should be KANGNAM, for Pete’s sake.
As I have been saying for yonks the beauty of Korean spoken language missed its chance to be known properly with the wrong and ugly romanization change in 2002 or whenever it was.
Not very good, but slightly more amusing than the original Gangnam Style.
I haven’t clicked on the Youtube comments to that video, but I think it’s a given there would be a lot of people who will take this humor seriously.
I heard this song on the local radio the other day, while driving to work, and I had to rub my ears to make sure it wasn’t because I wasn’t hearing things. It’s become a huge hit in North America, and it’s just starting. I can’t remember where a foreign language song (especially an Asian language at that!) has ever become this popular, other then the La Bam Ba in Spanish during the late 80’s. This is just simply amazing.
I checked out CopperCap’s channel. Quite a collection. He’s definitely got his schtick honed.
The debate is on whether/when Gangnam Style parodies will “jump the shark”
You got to wonder how the Wonder Girls and Girls Generation feel about all this.
The kid has a point. Why are we playing “South” Korean gang-style music here in the US? We have enough gangsters here, already. Why exacerbate the problem by playing and dancing to Korean gang music?
I like the Naval Academy version better than the Korean version, but my son likes the Korean version better because of the little kid who dances in the first part of the video.
” I can’t remember where a foreign language song (especially an Asian language at that!) has ever become this popular, other then the La Bam Ba in Spanish during the late 80′s. This is just simply amazing.”
LOL. Amerika is wunderbar.
“You got to wonder how the Wonder Girls and Girls Generation feel about all this.”
That’s supposing they have the intellect to grasp the implications.
Yeah, I saw some of this kid’s other vids too.
I think this kid needs some of your Xanax.
You obviously don’t have much of a sense of humour.
Well, he’s right, K-pop is evil – otherwise, I think he’s reading too much Goebbels, if he reads at all.
That’s been long established, but scholarly pursuits require a taciturn mien.
le vie en rose ,girl from ipenema, volare, rico suave, the macarena, 99 luft balloons, michelle, rock me amadeus, lambada, the ketchup song, je t’aime…moi non plus, voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?, dragostea din tei, jai ho and anything by the gypsy kings, to name a few.
Oye Como va, “sukiyaki”, Domenique, C’est Si Bon,….are a few more I can think of for now.

Really? Well, you, Meguyin, are obviously anti-US Navy.
And why, Cactus (#23), are you using so many big words these days? You can’t even spell “man.”
Gbevers, please stop. You’re digging yourself into yet another deep hole and looking more and more stupid…as usual.
Navy…that’s a fail! More girls, less guys!
I Googled Gerry Bevers and it turns out you’re a real dude! Sorry for calling you names. I thought you were a pseudonymous troll. If you are who you say you are, and you’re really just of the opinion that Dokdo is not historically Korean, that’s fine with me. To me, at least, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re anti-Korean. Of course, not all Koreans, or ethnic Koreans of other nationalities, will agree.
Nor did I need to.
Wow…That kid is Gangnam style!
Well, you, Meguyin, are obviously anti-US Navy.
Didn’t you blame the US for the military performance at the Pacific war?
he moves well, good rhythmic but not really sexy…
For the You Tube first place, he could wait a lot before !
I’d like to think that the Overlords at SM and JYP have all their skinny pretty boys chained up in some Gangnam K-pop dungeon, “Clockwork Orange” style, and are force-feeding them samgyeopsal and boiled potatoes while projecting pictures of PSY on the wall. “YOU MUST LOOK LIKE THIS NOW! EAT! EAT! EAT!”
And SNSD, Wondergirls, et.al. are now writing very polite letters to PSY: “Please put us in your next video, kind sir!”
He kinda looks like Kim JI.
Gangnam Style on ABC’s Nightline?
How far does this rabbit hole go?
There will be a Gangnam style-inspired clothing line from designer Jill Stuart. This line, however will be only available in Asia.

@theseoulvillage I'm guessing the Zollverein Coal Mine probably had its share of non-free labor during WWII, too.

@theseoulvillage Not that you'd know that from the UNESCO write-up, mind you:
