Going Gaga over Gangnam Style


I first came across Gangnam Style (a Korean pop song from Psy) from a WordPress freshly pressed blog. Then references to Gangnam Style started appearing on my Facebook timeline, and then I just had to youtube it to find out what it’s all about.

Have you seen the video? I just fell in love (without understanding a single word). I am an easy target though. I usually find buffoonery very entertaining. I think Takeshi’s Castle is high entertainment, and have spent sleepless nights chuckling in front of the TV watching countless reruns. So, of course, I would love Gangnam Style.

My friends tell me I have no taste. To which I counter, of course I have, I mean this video has gone viral, so there must be plenty of people like me, right? Right?

Please, please, please join in and say that I am not the only one going nuts over this song…

    Glad to know that you liked the ‘Gangnam’ style video, Nish 🙂 I first discovered it when one of my friends who lives in Korea sent a link to it. I loved it when I saw it the first time! When Chris Gayle started doing it, I realized that it has gone viral across the world.

    I love the dance in the video. Esp that little kid in the beginning. Gangnam Style.

    Omg Nish, I’d heard of Gangnam style before, but I didn’t associate it with some Korean guy making a hilarious video. Loved it. Watched it all the way to the end even. And I really liked the Skyrim (a game that I play) plugin someone made of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8C4TCpdYlA

    Sorry…you don’t have me on that bandwagon… 🙂 I couldn’t stand it…and it’s played heaps around here in promos for different shows and stuff…

      @Psych Babbler: It’s just starting to get popular over here. Like you, I probably would also get tired of it if I kept seeing it all the time.

    The Los Angeles area news love showing people doing their own versions of this video. Some life guards got in trouble for doing one on city property. Some Navy cadets did one too. But I like the video of the father trying to feed his fussy baby, and when he turns on this video, the baby is mesmerized, and eats whatever his father gives him.

      @sawcat: That’s a good idea actually. Maybe I should try feeding my son with this video turned on LOL

    I’m a fan of K-Pop. I love Gangnam Style, it’s a really fun song. Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with liking the music you like! And you’re definitely not the only one – the video has more than 400 million views on YouTube 🙂 I’m very happy for Psy.

    My Thai and Chinese students introduced me to this, and I thought it was hilarious. And then I heard it on the radio. I felt very cool. 😉
