Horse Trottin Psy


It seems like everyone is writing about PSY these days. In the last 24 hours since I scheduled the posting I have seen 3 other blogs about it. PSY is really taking off!

This is absolutely nuts. I can’t seem to ever keep up with the KPOP music here in Korea. There are quite a few groups, all with tons of people in them with names I can’t seem to remember. All I do know is that some songs are incredibly catchy and are played all over the city.

Today, as I was scrolling through CNN’s website, I came across this song. Gangnam Style. I can’t believe it made it to CNN. You can see the video here. CNN Video

Park Jae Sang, AKA PSY,  has not had amazing luck with music. In the past, his music has been very controversial here in Korea. His first album got him fined and the second was banned!

Gangnam is a part of town in Seoul. There are a few things that I, living here, pick up on as hysterical (sunbathing in the park, the fun dance moves, swimming in the jinjilbang, the ajumas on the colorful party bus) If only I could figure out who that adorable boy is!

This song has over 10 million views on Youtube in 3 weeks and has been tweeted about by Josh Groban and T-Pain.

Know your Meme has some hysterical adaptations (yes I watched them all)

If you want to know what the song is about, read below. But basically it is about the Gangnam area (upper class, fancy neighborhood) and the conservative day time women and how they get wild and cray at night. More importantly he is making fun of the “hipster” type saying something along the lines of, “I’m super cool…date me”

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh
