Gangnam Style most popular video
Unconventional, peculiar dance style, blunt lyrics, bizarre singer. Call him what you want but South Korean pop star PSY has taken the world by storm. His Gangnam Style shot to the top of most-watched video views, entertaining more than 800 million people with the now-famous dance steps and satirical lyrics. It also became the most “liked” video in YouTube history.
“Gangnam Style” as the artist explained, “is actually poking fun at those kinds of people who are trying so hard to be something that they’re not.”
According to an article quoted in Wikipedia, “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”. The term was listed in Time’s weekly vocabulary list as a manner associated with lavish lifestyles in Seoul’s Gangnam district.
Gangname Style brought PSY, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, international fame and earned him the Okgwan Order of Cultural Merit, one of South Korea’s highest cultural honours, in recognition of his global success.
