What made that gangam style shit so popular?

Oct 12, 2012 @ 03:47


i don't get it. is it supposed to be funny? is it like one of those ironic things for white people? like, they don't actually like it, but pretend to because that's the joke? its got like 500 million views.

like a 27 inch zenith, believe it

Cause it's Korean and catchy.

It's so ridiculous how can you not like it? Look at the dance. The dance is catchy and the tune is catchy. Look at the video, the dude goes from dancing in a barn with chicks doing yoga, to an elevator with a guy dancing on top of him. Random and catchy, recipe for success in todays culture.

I refuse to even watch it. I see enough of that shit floating around me to pay attention and "Get" the joke.

i didn't say i didn't like it. i'm just seeing it on all those fuckboy 'meme' sites and niggas on tv are doing the dance and i can't tell whether or not it's an ironic thing or people actually like it. remember rebecca black had the longest trend on twitter and the most views on youtube last year just because she sucked. this is the next generation.

He's going to have a 15 min thing in America but in Korea this dude will be one of the greatest. But yeah that shit is annoying as fuck.

^that shit is insane...there are no audiences like that in america anymore. i wonder if that's the only song they went nuts too tho. i can't even find another song by dude.

It did get annoying pretty fast

Although, no Kpop single will ever get big like Gangnam Style did. SNSD can't even surpass 100 million views and they have a much bigger fanbase. YG Entertainment fans outside of Korea didn't give a shit about PSY until now.

That's how they are with all their pop stars, man. Fans will send letters written in their blood to some of these people.

He's released several albums before this and was pretty well known in Korea. Making it in the US just made him even more notable.

IMO, it's along the same lines of acts in recent memory such as crazy frog and Schnappi the crocodile... It's famous because it's catchy, that's the whole point of a gimmick
Oct 12, 2012 @ 04:26
It's catchy & people like catchy annoying shit.

Chicks barely dancin, glancin every chance they get, like - oh shit, he's so HANSUM

Oct 12, 2012 @ 04:29
fuck these zipperhead gook fuck tunes
Oct 12, 2012 @ 04:39
To be honest, I dont know shit about Kpop. but that crowd was intense.

The only music i heard from Korea for a while is Big Bang.

It's just a dance craze. One of the many that are here and gone the next day, only to pop up in a VH1 "Remember the ___'s" music countdown show

Koreans did the American pop song better than Americans do.

Catchy beat + easy dance

Shit's just like Americana.

Damn straight. They sound super late on a lot of it though. Their shit still sounds like Mariah Carey shit from 2005.



Or Disney Channel shit from 2007.

Most K-pop is super generic, not necessarily bad(see: catchy), but it's hard to tell most of it apart from other stuff, especially when you don't know what they're saying.

Perfection. No other females in SK even come close to IU or Younha. Younha was perhaps the best live artist I've seen, until I see Ingrid or IU... maybe.

Younha is incredibly underrated. No one ever talks about her, IU gets more recognition like any idol because she's cute but she isn't *nearly as great as a soloist as Younha is
