The release of PSY’s follow up video Gentleman is as big as pop culture gets. More importantly, it’s also an excuse to listen to Gangnam Style again: WopWopWopWopWop Gangnam Style.
One megamegamegamegamegamegahit wonder or staying power? This year will decide.

Why do you need to hate this? He is going to become the ruler of Korea when it’s united.
Interesting subject in the video. Discussing peoples view on women and the douchebags at parties that think they can act however they want towards women.
The buildup in Korea for this has been pretty big since he announced this April 1st. A 100k person concert in World Cup stadium to premiere the video. Pretty big buildup. He was ‘flying’ around the stadium on a wire system singing to the whole audience. He cried several times thanking everyone for the support and promised to store that memory as he toured the US, Europe and Asia for the next 3 months. Psy is a real ass dude who mocks rather than exudes the fake, materialistic Korean culture he comes from. There couldn’t be a better Korean for all this success to fall on, and quite a good representative for his country. These guys love him for his giving back (MANY) free concerts in Korea.
EDIT: This was an interview a couple of weeks ago with English subs Psy
