Knowing the song was korean made me think about North Korea, and at that point I couldn't help but wonder what North Koreans would think about our western civilization watching this video. Lol.

I don't think North Koreans even bother with South Korean entertainment. Don't they like exist in their own side of the peninsula?
I love kpop. It's good to see other people appreciating music. Props to oppa Psy for having the most liked video on youtube!

Am I the only one who noticed that PSY goes underwater with goggles in a spa bath with a naked man sitting in there?

Meh, I don't understand the hype about this song. I prefer Ezio's Family or Bach's Cello Suite No. 1.

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.

And it's catchier than almost any other K-pop song I've heard.

I saw this video and I was so disturbed and impressed at the same time. I loved it! I saw it last night and it was cool. The dancing was pretty cool to.

Wopa Gandalf style


That's just a loop of Gandalf nodding to Gangnam Style. There's nothing impressive or interesting about it.

Over-rated and over-hyped.
I bet before Gangam Style nobody even knew what k-pop was.

Never heard it until I clicked on this thread. Annoying: yes. Quality: To quote the Old Man from Pawn Stars, "Not only no, but hell no." Now this is stuck in my head. If you need me, I'll be blasting Black Sabbath.

I heard of k-pop about Gangnam Stlye. I never listen to k-pop music before that though.
All I have to say is that the dance is...interesting and the song is actually catchy despite not knowing most of the lyrics.

I've known about it for years. Ever since Bulldog Mansion came out with that "It's My Birthday" song the genre has been sitting there in the back of my mind. I never thought it would get this popular, though; I heard Gangnam Style on the radio for the first time just yesterday and a part of me was actually surprised.

I only learned what this 'Gangnam style' was all about as recent as last saturday! (o.O)

I saw this thread, but disgarded it as it didn't intrigue me enough to open it... sorry Ernie, even seein you had posted in it didn't trigger my interest! Forgive me? =)

As for the song : hmmmm, yeah... ok... I can get it. Pretty easy dance song with some catchy lyrics, even though they are pretty meaningless, but hey... what dance song lyrics are nowadays?

And about the video : *facepalms* Really?! (o.O) LOL The dance is a superb example of a commercially good thought out gimmick! I saw this saturday during my first aqcuintance with this song. Looked weird at the time, but very clear after seeing the video!

Plus... a BIG PLUS... I got to meet Psy's partner in crime through discovering this video! He even released a second version of Gangnam Style together with Hyun_A Kim! What a lady... *breaks a sweat* (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!
