Three pages prior to your post and the internet right there. You're just too lazy to look anything up.

This song is unbelievable catchy. Add in a crazy music video and a ridiculous dance to it and you get the craze of pop culture.

Also like rayoflight said, it was meant to refer to the lifestyle of people in the Gangnam district of Korea.

Only one thing to say here fries... watch the video, listen to it and become infected like the rest of us! (O.o)

I was thinking the same thing when I saw her in the subway in the original video... I didn't know she could sing too!

Apparently she can and she is a music artist working for herself, but she was asked to feature in this video by PSY. And I'm really glad he asked her! *drools* =)

Catchy it sure is! I watched the video Monday evening and ended up saying "Wopa Gangnam Style" for the rest of the evening, much to the disgust of my GF... didn't have to sleep on the couch though! LOL

Oh? I didn't know that! Guess I have missed that post explaining this... hmmm Are they so crazy and decadent in that particular Korean district then?! =0

I don't think you want to know Pedro97... but if you do: Google Translate! ;)

Sorry about the double post, but I was curious myself about what PSY was singing, so I checked for the lyrics myself! For those that don't want to google it themselves, here they are! =D

##########################################################

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

LOL This is a typical example of a song that shouldn't be translated as it makes no sense when it is! (O.o)

Silly DayCee! It is a love song! (which really makes the video not fit with the song...). He is using parallelism when comparing her with him and how they are the perfect match for each other

I was just joking. And after seeing the translation, it's better to stay in Korean, that makes no sense.

If it's a love song he should have made a better video. But still, the dance is awesome :D

Even though I can't understand most of the song, the way the guy says "Gangnam Style" is stuck in my head.

And it's awesome!

Does anyone here realize the "Gangnam Style" is actually a satire on the exuberance of rich people's lives in Korea? It's social commentary.

To be honest I barely know anything about it as well, it's just I overheard someone saying it at school which led me to wikipedia the song.

"Gangnam Style" is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district of Seoul, where people are trendy, hip and exude a certain supposed "class".

This is a typical example of a song that shouldn't be translated as it makes no sense when it is!

Lol, yes.
