imtheonlylp: Am I really missing something about this Gangnam Style hype? I watched the video (noticing its 337+ million views) and wanted to punch myself in the face - with a parking lot - after a 20 story fall. I will never get that 4 mins of my life back. So someone please enlighten me to what I'm missing here?


That you just wasted another 2 minutes of your life, that you will never get back, by posting that.

The hilarity of Gangnam Style is the hip action and locations.

Lollipop165: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Lollipop165: It's cute.

I really don't understand the appeal of Gangham style though. I mean, its a cute song, but whatever. It's just Japanese LMFAO.

What am I missing here?

notsureiftroll.gif

/Japanese and Korean pop are significantly different
//even if Korean pop is pretty popular in Japan right now

Trolling? Because I mistook K pop for J pop? An honest mistake :-)

It still sounds just like LMFAO to me. I was at a party on Saturday night and everyone was just going on and on about Gangham Style. I mean, I like dance music, but I don't really get what all the hubub is about.


The Japanese and Korean languages sound very different.

/doesn't get what the hubub is about either
//there's way better k-pop groups out there
///but they all lack the endearing whimsy of j-pop

Just wanted to double-check that I wasn't missing something really important or some hidden message. You never know, could be something of massive importance at some point in life.

I don't get it either. I'm sorry, I don't. I mean, they are clearly talented. But I would never buy something like this, or listen to it over pretty much anything else I have.

There's a lot of humor in the video. The guy is taking the piss out of people who are saying to be from that area of Korea. Consider how many locations start out looking like he's awesome, and it turns out to be mundane - a day at the beach? Nope, kids park. A throne? Nope, toilet. Sexy ladies? Nope, chuck testa.

Did you think Rain is sitting in a corner somewhere plotting to kill Psy? I mean he did everything he could to break into the US, movies, fight Colbert and all he had to do was dance like a horse over a pop beat.

Yes, it reminds me of the 1960s "club jazz" that was played at every waterhole with a stage. As usual, it's not new, it's just revisitation of an earlier style

/"brit" blues of the the 60s (Stones, T rex, Mayal) were like this
//So was The Eagles 'Cowboy Rock' a revisit to country
///and "rock n roll" of the 50s re-did RnB

I was young enough to see Macarena take off...and not only did I not "get it", I ignored it.

Krymson Tyde: The first time I heard the original was on NPR, I thought the words "Oppa Gangnam style" was "open condom style"

Yeah, didn't make much sense to me either.


It's hotdog condom style

I used to be afraid I was going to get old and that I'd no longer be cool and hip and into the latest thing to burn up Twitter. I had no idea what this Gagnam Style thing was until a day or so ago.

But instead of being sad that I'm too old to be cool, I just think, "hmm what the kids are into today is freaking dumb".

It looks exotic to people who are unfamiliar with Korea or Asia in general. For them, it's kind of like a video from an alternate reality appeared on youtube.

If you're more familiar (or jaded) with East Asia, this is not likely to excite you much.

But at least it's not as annoying as the macarena was back in 1995.
Which btw is almost 20 years ago, I hope you all feel just as old as I do now.

He explained what Gangnam is right there...

I believe oppa is a word that kind of means "older brother", but in many Asian cultures, you can call older guys "older brother". Some girls call their boyfriends "oppa", from what I hear.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: The Japanese and Korean languages sound very different.


Yet both languages, when learned in childhood, totally destroy any chance of speaking comprehensible English.
