So, I just found out about “Gangnam Style”.
Please excuse my lack of knowledge about pop culture, but after being in a temple for the past 5 month, I haven’t been tuning in to the world as much as did before.
Anyways, now that I am off on break, I am seeing this “Gangnam Style” every I go, at basketball events, Communist meetings, elementary schools, even senior Tai-chi Championships. I am taken aback at first cause I really didn’t know what it was, it was only until I met google did I found out that apparently some Korean named PSY has beaten my “boy” Bieber’s Baby on the Youtube all-time view list.
Sure, it has catchy tunes, interesting animistic dance moves, minimal social satire in the lyrics, but can anyone please explain to me why this stuff is so contagious that it has reached almost every age group in every corner of the world? Really this is a legit question, cause honestly I thinks is a valuable question to ask.
Just want to throw that out there, please comment below, post on fb, or email me at koshimomo@gmail if you think you know the answer.
