It has been featured in broadcasting networks such as CNN and Bloomberg, mentioned by numerous celebrities, and has also led to various user-generated parodies and reaction videos from all over the world.

Background

“Gangnam Style” is a Korean language colloquialism that refers to a luxurious lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district,an affluent and trendy area of Seoul.The music video depicts Psy dancing at various locations in Gangnam.The song’s theme is about “the perfect girlfriend who knows when to be refined and when to get wild.”

In Korean colloquialism, “오빤 강남 스타일 (Oppan Gangnam style)” may be translated as “I am (loving) the Gangnam style.” or literally translated as “I am Gangnam style.” or “A Gangnam-styled girl is my style.” because the Korean word 오빠 (oppa), which is a noun meaning “a female’s elder brother” but can be also used as a first-, second- or third-person masculine pronoun to designate a male who is elder or older than a female, is used as a first-person pronoun in this phrase and 오빤 (oppan) is an abbreviation of 오빠는 (oppaneun) which is translated as “I am” when 오빠 (oppa) is used as a first-person pronoun.

The lyrics are by Psy, music by Psy and Yoo Gun-hyung, and it was arranged by Yoo Gun-hyung, who is a well-known producer in South Korea and also collaborated with Psy in the past.

Music video

The music video shows PSY dancing a comical horse-riding dance and appearing in unexpected locations such as an outdoor yoga session and hot tub. The “skewering [of] the Gangnam image” by the “non-Gangnam PSY” is recognizable to Korean viewers, but those less familiar with the cultural context have found the video “fresh” amidst the teen pop idol groups increasingly popular with overseas viewers.

Making appearances in the music video are:

  • 4minute member Hyuna playing PSY’s love interest and appearing in the two final dance sequences
  • Comedian/television personality Yoo Jae-Seok in a dance duel with PSY
  • Comedian/television personality Noh Hong-cheol dancing in an elevator with his trademark pelvic-thrusting
  • Big Bang members Daesung and Seungri as elderly men playing a board game

About a month after its initial release, on August 17, 2012, Gangnam Style officially won first-place in the Korean music television programme Music Bank on KBS 2TV, scoring a total of 18,601 points.

Release

When Gangnam Style was first released on July 15, 2012, it was only known to fans of K-Pop, and in particular those of Psy’s record label the South Korean management agency YG Entertainment. However, K-Pop fans started to share it on social networks like Facebook and Twitter and it was not long before internet users outside the K-Pop community began to notice it. Soon, even celebrities in and outside the United States tweeted about Gangnam Style, which triggered a vicious snowball effect. Towards the end of July, it became a worldwide hit when the international media began to take notice of it. On the 4th of August, The Los Angeles Times wrote that Gangnam Style is “unstoppable” and it is is taking over the world.
From 2 years of break, PSY is finally coming back with his 6th album ‘PSY6甲’!
The album’s weighty title song ‘Gangnam Style’ is composed solely by PSY himself from lyrics to choreography. The song is characterized by its strongly addictive beats and lyrics, and is thus certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy.

가수 싸이가 6집 앨범 ‘싸이6甲(싸이육갑)’으로 2년 만에 전격 컴백한다!
타이틀 곡은 싸이가 직접 작사·작곡한 ‘강남스타일’로 싸이는 멜로디, 가사, 안무 등 다방면에서 강한 중독성을 보여 줄 예정이다.
