"Gangnam Style" (Korean: 강남스타일, IPA: [kaŋnam sɯtʰail]) is a K-pop single by the South Korean musician PSY. The song was released in July 2012 as the lead single of his sixth studio album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1, and debuted at number one on South Korea's Gaon Chart. On December 21, 2012, at around 15:50 UTC, "Gangnam Style" became the first online video to record a billion hits on the Internet.[5] As of January 10, 2013 (2013 -01-10)[update], the music video has been viewed over 1.19 billion times on YouTube,[6] and it is the site's most watched video after surpassing Justin Bieber's single "Baby".[7]

The phrase "Gangnam Style" is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District of Seoul. The song and its accompanying music video went viral in August 2012 and have influenced popular culture worldwide since then. "Gangnam Style" received mixed to positive reviews, with praise going to its catchy beat and PSY's amusing dance moves (which themselves have become a phenomenon) in the music video and during live performances in various locations around the world. In September 2012, "Gangnam Style" was recognized by Guinness World Records as the most "liked" video on YouTube.[8] It subsequently won Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards held later that year.[9] It became a source of parodies and reaction videos by many different individuals, groups and organizations while also inspiring dance mobs in Paris, Rome, and Milan, with tens of thousands of participants each. On New Year's Eve 2013, more than a million people witnessed a live "Gangnam Style" performance in Times Square, New York City, by PSY and rapper MC Hammer;[10] as well as in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.[11]

By the end of 2012, the song had topped the music charts of more than 30 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Although its reception in Japan remained lukewarm, "Gangnam Style" topped China's Baidu 500 download list and was labelled by state-controlled media as having a "divine melody."[12][13][14]

As the song continued to rapidly gain popularity and ubiquity, its signature dance moves were attempted by many notable political leaders such as the British Prime Minister David Cameron, U.S. President Barack Obama, and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, who hailed it as a "force for world peace".[15] Its influence on political activism was exemplified by the short film Gangnam for Freedom, produced by the British sculptor Anish Kapoor to advocate the freedom of expression with the support of various human rights organisations such as Index on Censorship and Amnesty International.[16] According to the United Nations' news division, PSY has become an "international sensation" through his song "Gangnam Style".[17]

"Gangnam Style" is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District[18] of Seoul,[19] where people are trendy, hip and exude a certain supposed "class." The term was listed in Time's weekly vocabulary list as a manner associated with lavish lifestyles in Seoul's Gangnam district.[20] PSY likened the Gangnam District to Beverly Hills, California, and said in an interview that he intended in a twisted sense of humour by claiming himself to be "Gangnam Style" when everything about the song, dance, looks, and the music video is far from being such a high class.[21]

People who are actually from Gangnam never proclaim that they are—it's only the posers and wannabes that put on these airs and say that they are "Gangnam Style"—so this song is actually poking fun at those kinds of people who are trying so hard to be something that they're not. —PSY[22]

The song talks about "the perfect girlfriend who knows when to be refined and when to get wild."[23] The song's refrain "오빤 강남 스타일 (Oppan Gangnam style)" has been translated as "Big brother is Gangnam style", with PSY referring to himself;[24][25] "Oppa" is a Korean expression used by females to refer to an older male friend or older brother.[26] During an interview with The New York Times, PSY revealed that the Korean fans have huge expectations about his dancing, so he felt a lot of pressure. In order to keep up with expectations, he studied hard to find something new and stayed up late for about 30 nights to come up with the "Gangnam Style" dance.[27] Along the way, he had tested various "cheesy" animal-inspired dance moves with his choreographer, including panda and kangaroo moves,[28] before settling for the horse trot, which involves pretending to ride a horse, alternately holding the reins and spinning a lasso, and moving into a legs-shuffling side gallop.[29]

During an interview with Reuters, PSY claimed that "Gangnam Style" was originally produced only for local K-pop fans,[30] and he later said the same thing during a speech at the University of Oxford.[citation needed] On July 11, PSY and his music label YG Entertainment started releasing several promotional teasers for "Gangnam Style" to their subscribers on YouTube.[31][32][33] On July 15, 2012, the full music video of "Gangnam Style" was uploaded onto YouTube and was immediately a sensation, receiving about 500,000 views on its first day.[34] However, in Germany, an ongoing dispute between YouTube and the GEMA (the country's performance rights organization) regarding copyright issues has led to thousands of music videos including "Gangnam Style"[35] being blocked in the country.[36]

K-pop and the Korean Wave Main articles: K-pop and Korean Wave Search volume for K-pop since 2008 according to Google Trends

According to the news agency Agence France-Presse, the success of "Gangnam Style" could be considered as part of the Korean Wave,[37] a term coined by Chinese journalists to refer to the significant increase in the popularity of South Korean entertainment and culture since the late 1990s.[38]

Korean popular music (K-pop), considered by some to be the most important aspect of the Korean Wave,[39] is a music genre that relies on cultural technology to adapt to the tastes of foreign audiences and has now grown into a popular subculture among teenagers and young adults in many places around the world.[40] Although it has spread to the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of South America,[41] its reception in the Western world has so far been lukewarm.[42] However, social media networks such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have made it easier for K-pop musicians to reach a wider audience in the West.[43] According to Mark James Russell from Foreign Policy, while the Korean Wave "may not (yet) turn heads in Los Angeles or London," this could soon change because of "Gangnam Style".[41]

Reception Critical reception Professional ratings Review scores Source Rating About.com [44] Common Sense Media [45] Digital Spy [46]

The song has received mixed to positive ratings from music critics. Music journalist Bill Lamb from About.com praised the song for "spreading smiles and pure fun around the world in record time." He then writes, "take one part LMFAO's synth-based party music, another part Ricky Martin's Latin dance party and the rest a powerfully charismatic South Korean showman and you have the first worldwide K-Pop smash hit,"[44] while Ian Garland of the Daily Mail called "Gangnam Style" a "bizarre music sensation."[47]

Jeff Benjamin from Billboard became one of the first music critics to review the song when he published an article and reported that "Gangnam Style" has gone viral on the Internet. In his article, Benjamin introduced the reader to a couple of popular K-pop songs and wrote that "Gangnam Style" in particular, plays all the right moves sonically while "borrowing from LMFAO along the way".[19]

The next day, Hallie Sekoff of The Huffington Post quoted from the video's official YouTube video description that the song is characterized by its "strongly addictive beats", and wrote that this is not too far-fetched, considering "how obsessed we've found ourselves."[48] London's mayor Boris Johnson considered the song to be the greatest cultural masterpiece of 2012.[49]

Despite its popularity, a few music critics including Robert Copsey from Digital Spy criticized the song for being monotonous. Cospey wrote that "you could slap an LMFAO tag on the cover and few would know the difference"[46] and Paul Lester of The Guardian similarly labelled it as "generic ravey Euro dance with guitars". Lester described the song as "Pump Up the Jam meets the Macarena with a dash of Cotton Eye Joe"[50] while Robert Myers of The Village Voice dismissed "Gangnam Style" as an "inspired piece of silliness".[51]

South Korea and Japan Dancers performing "Gangnam Style" at the Gimje Horizon Festival

Cha Woo-jin, a South Korean music critic, told The Chosun Ilbo that "Gangnam Style"'s sophisticated rendering and arrangement has made it very appealing to the general public.[52] Choe Kwang-shik, the South Korean Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, told reporters that "Gangnam Style" had played an important role in introducing the Korean culture, language, and lifestyle to the rest of the world.[53] However, some have criticized the song for failing to accurately represent South Korean culture. Oh Young-Jin, managing editor of The Korea Times, wrote that the dance has more to do with Americans than Koreans.[54]

In Japan, the song has met with considerable criticism. When "Gangnam Style" first appeared in Japanese TV shows in July, the reaction from viewers was negative. As a result, PSY's Japanese record label YGEX cancelled a previously planned Japanese language re-release of "Gangnam Style".[55] According to The Dong-a Ilbo, a South Korean newspaper, the song's lukewarm reception in Japan could have been caused by a diplomatic conflict between the two countries[56] and the newspaper accused the Japanese media of keeping its people "in the dark".[56] However, Jun Takaku of the Japanese daily newspaper Asahi Shimbun explained that "Gangnam Style" had caused "barely a ripple in Japan" because PSY does not conform to the image of other "traditionally polished" K-pop acts popular in Japan such as Girls' Generation and TVXQ.[57] Erica Ho from Time magazine similarly noted that despite the K-pop musical genre being very popular in Japan, the country seemed to be "immune to PSY Mania" and she advised her readers who dislike the song to "pack your bags for Japan".[58]

Immediately after its release, "Gangnam Style" was mentioned by various English-language websites providing coverage of Korean pop culture for international fans, including Allkpop[59] and Soompi.[60] Simon and Martina Stawski, a Canadian couple living in Seoul who were among the first to parody "Gangnam Style" in late July, wrote that the song has the potential to become "one of the biggest songs of the year".[61] However, during an interview with Al Jazeera a few weeks later, Martina Stawski claimed that the worldwide popularity of "Gangnam Style" has been viewed negatively by some K-pop fans, because "they [the fans] didn't want K-pop being liked by other people who don't understand K-Pop".[62][63] This view is also supported by the British journalist and K-pop fan Promi Ferdousi, who wrote that the song has managed to "find its way into our clubs" while the best K-pop songs are limited to niche groups on social-media websites.[64]

Music video Synopsis PSY and Hwang Min-Woo in the playground scene in the music video of "Gangnam Style"

The video starts out with PSY, who is lounging at what looks like a sandy beach,[note 1] under a sun umbrella and holding a cold drink, but the camera zooms out to reveal he is actually at a playground.[65] The video then alternates between the playground, where a boy, Hwang Min-Woo, dances next to him; and a row of horses in stalls, where PSY performs his signature "invisible horse dance".[66] As PSY (and two girls) walk through a parking garage, they are pelted by pieces of newspaper, trash, and snow.[67] At a sauna, he rests his head on a man's shoulder, dressed in blue, while another man covered in tattoos is stretching. He then sings in front of two men playing Janggi (Korean chess), dances with a woman at a tennis court, and bounces around on a tour bus of seniors. The scenes alternate quickly until there is an explosion near the chess players, causing them to dive off the bench. PSY immediately walks towards the camera, pointing and shouting "Oppan Gangnam Style". The chorus starts as he and some dancers perform at a horse stable. He dances as two women walk backwards. He dances at the tennis court, a carousel, and the tour bus. He shuffles into an outdoor yoga session and on a boat. The camera zooms in on a woman's butt, then shows PSY "yelling" at it.[67][68]

PSY and Noh Hongchul in the elevator scene in the music video of "Gangnam Style"

The chorus ends and he is seen at a parking lot, where PSY is approached by a man (Yoo Jae-Suk) in yellow suit who steps out of a red Mercedes-Benz SLK 200; they have a dance duel. He then appears in an elevator underneath a man (Noh Hongchul) who is straddling him and thrusting his pelvis. The man in the yellow suit then gets in his car and leaves. The camera pans and it shows PSY in a subway cabin, where he notices an attractive young woman (Hyuna) dancing. At one of the train stops, he approaches the girl in slow motion, and she does the same. They start to embrace. He then tells the girl "Oppan Gangnam style", and they horse dance along with some others at the train stop, commencing the second chorus. He also surfaces from a spa.[67][68][note 2]

PSY sings to the girl at a night club as people in various costumes walk behind them. He raps in a serious tone in an enclosed space, but when he says "You know what I'm saying" the camera zooms out, and he is actually sitting on a toilet with his pants down.[67] PSY and a large group of dancers do the horse dance and strike a final pose. After a brief reprise of the dance duel, PSY says, "Oppan Gangnam style", and the video finishes with a cartoon graphic.

Production

The music video shows PSY performing a comical horse-riding dance and appearing in unexpected locations around the Gangnam District, such as an outdoor yoga session and a hot tub. He wears several distinctive suits and black sunglasses with a mindset of "dress classy and dance cheesy".[69] It features a "skewering [of] the Gangnam image" by the "non-Gangnam PSY"; this parody would be recognizable to viewers familiar with Korean culture.[70][71] Although there are more than ten different locations featured, only two of the scenes are actually filmed in the Gangnam district. The sauna scene, elevator scene and bathroom scene were filmed elsewhere in the greater Seoul region,[72] and some shots were filmed in World Trade Center Seoul and the Songdo International Business District, which includes Songdo Central Park and International Business District Station.[73] The video was shot over 48 hours in July 2012.[67][68]

In K-pop, it is routine to have cameos by celebrities in a music video, such as in the dance scenes in the elevator and the parking garage.[65] Making appearances in the music video are:

4minute member Hyuna playing PSY's love interest and appearing in the two final dance sequences.[68][71] Big Bang members Daesung and Seungri appear in the video as two old men playing a board game in the park; they are the two men flying in the background after the explosion.[74][75][76] Hwang Min-Woo, a 7-year-old boy who is seen dancing at the beginning of the video. During an interview with CNN, PSY stated that "the night before the music video shoot, I was watching Korea's Got Talent and saw him dance to Michael Jackson. His moves were ridiculous. So we called him up and asked him to be in the music video, which was shooting the very next day, and he came and it all worked out."[22][68] He has been praised for his eye-catching dance moves that have received a lot of attention from viewers.[77][78] Comedian/television personality, Korea's Nation emcee Yoo Jae-Suk, in a dance duel with PSY.[68][71] Comedian/television personality, Noh Hongchul, dancing in an elevator with his trademark pelvis-thrusting, with PSY rapping underneath him.[68][71]

The music was composed by PSY and Yoo Gun Hyung, a producer in South Korea who has also collaborated with PSY in the past. Yoo also arranged the song while PSY was responsible for the lyrics. According to The Guardian, PSY has waived his copyright to the music video[citation needed][clarification needed]. Although this has not been officially confirmed, Arwa Mahdawi of The Guardian reported it was likely that PSY had simply refrained from taking legal action against parodies of his video. "Gangnam Style" is therefore a video that is "born to spawn".[79]

Following its July 15 release, "Gangnam Style" overtook Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" to reach the number one position on the YouTube Top 100 Music Videos during the week of August 28, 2012.[18][80] On September 1, it overtook Girls' Generation's "Gee" to become the most viewed K-pop video on YouTube.[81] Although "Call Me Maybe" has had unusually strong staying power, averaging over 1.5 million views each day, "Gangnam Style" increased to an average of over nine million views per day within just two months. This is mainly because "Call Me Maybe" remained largely a North American trend, whereas the popularity of "Gangnam Style" is not confined to the United States.[82] 61.6 percent of viewers were male, and those aged between 13 and 17 represented the biggest group.[83]

According to The Wall Street Journal, T-Pain was among the first to have "sent [the video] to the stratosphere" when he tweeted about it on July 29.[84][85] It was then picked up by Neetzan Zimmerman from the social blog Gawker, who asked "Did this underground Hip Hop artist from South Korea just release the Best Music Video of the Year?"[86] on July 30. This was soon followed by Robbie Williams,[87] Britney Spears,[88] Katy Perry,[50] Tom Cruise,[89] Joseph Gordon-Levitt,[90] and William Gibson,[91] who have either commented about or shared the video with their fans via Twitter.

The earliest video that caught the attention of media networks outside South Korea is "PSY Gangnam Style MV Reaction", which was uploaded by Katie and Mindy Anderson on July 18, 2012. The Andersons were subsequently interviewed by Evan Ramstad from The Wall Street Journal a few weeks later.[92] In his article published on August 6, 2012, Ramstad also included "Kpop Music Mondays : PSY Gangnam Style", a review and parody of "Gangnam Style" uploaded on July 23 by K-pop video bloggers Simon and Martina Stawski, a Canadian couple living in Seoul. This makes the Stawski's video the earliest parody featured in an American newspaper.[84] On August 8, 2012, Ramstad appeared on WSJ Live, and he mentioned the Andersons and the Stawskis again, before claiming that "a lot of Koreans are also making their own parodies of 'Gangnam Style'".[93]

On September 3, 2012, the number of daily views generated by "Gangnam Style" went past the five-million mark.[94] By the end of September, it had topped the iTunes charts in 31 countries.[95] The Dong-a Ilbo, a South Korean newspaper, quoted the following statement released by YouTube, "From July 15, when the music video was uploaded on the site, to September 28, the video was accessed by people in 222 countries, more than the 193 member countries of the U.N."[56]

"Gangnam Style" reached the milestone of one billion YouTube views on December 21, 2012. A spoof documentary by videographer Simon Gosselin[104] was posted on YouTube and had promoted 2012 doomsday rumors across social media services such as Facebook and Twitter that linked "Gangnam Style" to a fake Nostradamus prophecy.[105] On December 21, at around 15:50 UTC, the video's YouTube page updated with 1,000,382,639 views.[106] YouTube specially marked the video's accomplishments with a cartoon dancing PSY animated icon, added first by the site logo,[107] and later next to the video's view counter when it exceeded a billion views.[108]

Reviews

The music video of "Gangnam Style" has been met with positive responses from the music industry and commentators, who drew attention to its tone and dance moves, though some found them vulgar.[109] Another notable aspect that helped popularise the video was its comical dance moves that can be easily copied, such as the pelvic thrust during the elevator scene.[110] The United Nations hailed PSY as an "international sensation" because of the popularity of his "satirical" video clip and its "horse-riding-like dance moves".[111] As such, the music video has spawned a dance craze unseen since the Macarena of the mid 1990s.[112][113]

The World Bank's lead economist David McKenzie remarked that some of PSY’s dance moves "kind of look like a regression discontinuity",[114] while the space agency NASA called "Gangnam Style" a dance-filled music video that has forever entered the hearts and minds of millions of people.[115] Melissa Locker of Time noted that "it's hard not to watch again ...and again ...and again",[116] while CNN reporter Shanon Cook told the audience that she had watched "Gangnam Style" about 15 times.[117]

The German news magazine Der Spiegel attributed the popularity of "Gangnam Style" to its daring dance moves,[118] a sentiment similarly voiced by Maura Judkis of The Washington Post, who wrote, "'Gangnam Style' has made an extraordinarily stupid-looking dance move suddenly cool".[119] The video was also positively reviewed by Steve Knopper from Rolling Stone, who called "Gangnam Style" an astoundingly great K-pop video that has all the best elements of hypnotically weird one-hit wonders and hopes that "PSY gets filthy rich from this".[120]

Mesfin Fekadu of the Associated Press wrote that PSY's dance moves are "somewhat bizarre" but the music video is full of colorful, lively outfits.[121] Matt Buchanan and Scott Ellis of The Sydney Morning Herald wrote that the video "makes no sense at all to most Western eyes" and it "makes you wonder if you have accidentally taken someone else's medication"[122] whereas Deborah Netburn of the Los Angeles Times called it "one of the greatest videos ever to be uploaded to YouTube."[123] Kim Alessi from Common Sense Media considered the music video for "Gangnam Style" worth seeing for its caricature of contemporary Asian and American urban lifestyles, but also warned that "Gangnam Style" contains sexually suggestive images and "degrading messages" which could be inappropriate for children and teenagers.[45]

Following the release of "Gangnam Style", PSY made several performances on television and at concerts in Korea. Among the first of such performances include his appearance on the weekly South Korean music program, The Music Trend.[19] PSY also performed at several concerts prior to his departure to the US, including during "The Heumbbeok Show"[142] and the Summer Stand Concert in Seoul.[143] After returning to South Korea, PSY performed "Gangnam Style" during a free concert that he held outside the Seoul City Hall. More than 80,000 fans attended the event, leading to the closure of a part of the city center and an increase in subway operations.[144][145] While PSY was in the US, it was announced that he, as ambassador of the Formula One Korean Grand Prix, would perform "Gangnam Style" at the event during the 2012 edition.[146] At the event PSY taught Formula One drivers Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel how to perform the dance.[147]

On November 28, PSY visited Thailand and held his concert "Gangnam Style Thailand Extra Live" at the SCG Stadium in Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok. At the show, a part of celebration for the 85th birthday of Thai's King Bhumibol Adulyadej, he performed the song alongwith his other hits.[148][149] During the 2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards held in Hong Kong on November 30, he delivered a performance of the song on stage, joined by the video's co-star Hyuna and Yoo Jae-Seok look-alikes in yellow suits.[150] The track was one of three-song setlist on PSY's free showcase, held at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on December 1, 2012.[151]

Following the viral success of his music video, PSY left for the United States and performed "Gangnam Style" in various locations. On August 20, PSY posted on Twitter "Bringing #GangnamStyle to the Dodgers–Giants game this evening". Dodger Stadium presented a segment called "PSY Dance Cam" where they showed clips of the music video, followed by live shots of baseball fans dancing, and then PSY, who waves and does the dance.[158] Two days later, PSY appeared on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live show, and taught television hosts Carrie Keagan and Jason Dundas how to dance "Gangnam Style".[103][159]

On September 6, PSY appeared at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards performing his "Gangnam Style" dance alongside comedian Kevin Hart.[160] After the event, he would make several more appearances on US TV programs. On September 10, he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in Burbank, California, introducing himself as "PSY from Korea", before teaching Britney Spears the dance. He described the dance as "pretending to bounce like riding on an invisible horse"[69][161][162] and when Ellen told Britney she would have to remove her high-heeled shoes to perform the dance PSY protested that no, the point was, 'to dress classy, and dance cheesy.' On September 14, he appeared on NBC's morning program Today in New York City for its Toyota Concert Series, where he performed the song and also taught the anchors the dance.[163][164] The September 15 season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live featured a sketch based on the song and its video. Bobby Moynihan portrayed PSY, but was joined mid-sketch by PSY himself.[165] He also made his second appearance on The Ellen Show's September 19 episode to perform the song alongwith his backup dancers.[166] On September 22, PSY made an appearance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival to perform "Gangnam Style".[167] PSY, dressed in a black jacket, blue pants, two-tone shoes and his signature shades, appeared on the US national TV show The View on October 25 and performed the song for Barbara Walters and the ladies of the show who donned sunglasses and got out of their seats.

On November 13, he joined the American singer-songwriter Madonna on stage during her concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City and they performed a mashup of the song and her 2008 hit "Give It 2 Me". PSY later told reporters that his gig with Madonna had "topped his list of accomplishments".[168][169] On November 18, PSY, who rocked out in traditional Hammer pants, closed out the 40th American Music Awards show with a performance of "Gangnam Style", joined by surprise guest MC Hammer who brought in his own moves and PSY's horse-riding dance as the song mashed into his 1990s hit "2 Legit 2 Quit".[170] Jason Lipshutz of Billboard commented that "PSY's feverish rendition of 'Gangnam Style' accomplished what so few award show performances can: a palpable sense of excitement. The combination of the K-pop star and MC Hammer [...] was a stroke of genius that very few could have seen coming", choosing it as the best performance of the night.[171] The Tonight Show with Jay Leno did a special Thanksgiving broadcast with an all-military audience on November 22, and PSY dropped by as the musical guest. The singer sang the song and danced alongside the soldiers, going into the crowd for part of his performance.[172]

PSY performed "Gangnam Style" during the second night of KIIS-FM Jingle Ball concert at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on December 3, 2012.[173] He―wearing an all-red outfit including a sparkling, sequined top―sang the song at TNT's Christmas in Washington special, attended by the US President Barack Obama and his family, and held at the National Building Museum On December 9.[174] On December 16, he performed the song at the halftime show of the NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks in Toronto.[175] During the Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve event at Times Square in New York City on December 31, he was joined on stage by characters (Yoo Jae-Seok, Noh Hong-chul) from the song's video for the first part of the performance before MC Hammer appeared to perform a mash-up of the song and "2 Legit 2 Quit".[176][177]

After the release of "Gangnam Style", the American talent manager Scooter Braun, who discovered Justin Bieber on YouTube, asked on Twitter "How did I not sign this guy (PSY)".[178] Soon afterwards, it was reported that PSY had left for Los Angeles to meet with representatives of Justin Bieber, to explore collaboration opportunities.[18][109] On September 3, Braun made a public announcement that was later uploaded onto YouTube, saying that he and PSY have decided to "make some history together. [To] be the first Korean artist to break a big record in the United States." On September 4, it was confirmed that PSY was signed to Braun's School Boy Records.[179]

The music video for the song has gone viral and is an Internet meme.[180] Although PSY attributed the song's popularity to YouTube and his fans while at the same time insisted that he is not responsible for the song's success,[181] the South Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recognized the singer for "increasing the world's interest in Korea" and announced its decision to award PSY with a 4th Class Order of Cultural Merit.[182]

The phrase "Oppan Gangnam Style" was entered into The Yale Book of Quotations as one of the most famous quotes of 2012.[183]

Social

As the song's popularity continued to rise, it caused the share price of the song's music label YG Entertainment to gain as much as 50% on the Korea Exchange. DI Corporation, whose executive Chairman Park Won-Ho is PSY's father, saw its share price increase by 568.8% within a few months of the song's release despite making a year-over-year loss.[184][185] Soon, "Gangnam Style" began to attract the attention of several business and political leaders, including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon who recognized the song as a "force for world peace".[15] During his meeting with PSY at the United Nations Headquarters, he commented, "We have tough negotiations in the United Nations. In such a case I was also thinking of playing Gangnam Style-dance so that everybody would stop and dance. Maybe you can bring UN style."[186][187]

The song has been tweeted by the United Nations,[197] the United Nations Children's Fund,[198] the American space agency NASA,[199] mentioned by a reporter during a U.S. State Department briefing[200] and referenced by the President of the International Criminal Court Song Sang-Hyun during his speech in front of the UN Security Council.[201][202][203] On October 9, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson held a speech at the 2012 Conservative Party Conference where he told the audience that he and the British Prime Minister David Cameron have danced "Gangnam Style".[204] A few days before the conference, they had performed the dance at Chequers Court in Buckinghamshire.[205] During a Google Earnings call, Larry Page, the CEO and co-founder of Google, hailed the song as a glimpse of the future of worldwide distribution through YouTube.[206]

The American Council on Exercise estimated that dancing "Gangnam Style" will burn 150–200 calories per half-hour[207] and the song was used by Northampton General Hospital to promote hand washing as part of the 2012 Global Handwashing Day on October 15.[208] Swype, an input method for Android operating systems, included "Gangnam Style" in its list of recognized words and phrases.[209]

U.S. President Barack Obama revealed possible plans to privately perform "Gangnam Style" for his spouse Michelle Obama.[210][211][212][213]

In November 2012, a Maori cultural group from Rotorua performed a version of the Gangnam Style dance mixed with a traditional Maori haka in Seoul, celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations between South Korea and New Zealand.[214]

In Thailand, officials from the Dan Sai municipality in Loei Province shot a video of people wearing masks and performing "Gangnam Style" during the Phi Ta Khon "ghost" festival. According to the Thai newspaper The Nation, villagers and spiritual leaders from Loei province have felt "uneasy" and also "greatly offended" about this "Gangnam Style" performance which tarnishes the image of a 400 year-old tradition.[215] Another controversial incident was sparked by a "Gangnam Style" parody by officers from the Royal Thai Navy, which was not well received by some high-ranking commanders. Although Vice Admiral Tharathorn Kajitsuwan from the Third Naval Area Command insisted that "we had no intention to insult or make fun of navy officers in uniform", some senior officers have called it "improper". Kajitsuwan claimed that his subordinates had the right to upload the video to YouTube, although he did not expect them to do so. On October 1, 2012, he issued an apology to his colleagues. Commander Surasak Rounroengrom believes an investigation is unnecessary because the video caused no damage to the Navy, but he admits that there was some impropriety about military officers doing their "fancy stepping in uniform".[216]

mob in Manhattan, September 12, 2012.

Since September 2012, the dance has been performed by athletes in international competitions. These people include Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao,[218] Uruguayan footballer Edinson Cavani,[219] tennis player Novak Djokovic,[220] and Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle, who danced "Gangnam Style" twice during the West Indies' match against Ireland and then repeated the act during the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 match against England.[221][222] Bangladesh national cricket team also celebrated their ODI series win against West Indies with "Gangnam Style" dance on December 8, 2012.[223]

District3 and Rylan Clark, finalists of the British music competition The X Factor, lip-synced and danced to "Gangnam Style" in a promotion.[224] On September 27, Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google was reported to have danced "Gangnam Style" when he visited the company's office in Seoul. Nick Carbone from Time described it as cringe-worthy because "It's the same reason why you'd never want to see your dad planking on top of the family car".[225] The dance was also shown on the Argentine TV series Graduados, performed by the Argentine-Korean actor Chang Kim Sung.[226] In Fall 2012, a cover version of the song was performed on the Fox TV show Glee in the episode "Thanksgiving".[227]

In mid-September, the Brazilian singer Latino released the song "Despedida de solteiro" (The Bachelor's Party), which is supposed to be a cover of "Gangnam Style". Many felt offended by his disrespectful lyrics,[228] and some have called it a plagiarized copy of "Gangnam Style".[229] While PSY's original lyrics talk about the lifestyle of the Gangnam people, Latino's version is about a man that is enjoying his bachelor's party in a club, wanting (and having) sex with many women, so drunk that he says he does not know if he's really going to get married the next day.[230] Latino had stated that it was an authorized version.[231]

Political and environmental activism Screenshots from North Korea's parody of "Gangnam Style"

On September 18, 2012, the North Korean government became the first to use "Gangnam Style" for political activism when it uploaded a parody with the title "I'm Yushin style!" onto the government website Uriminzokkiri.[232] The parody mocks the South Korean ruling conservative party presidential-elect Park Geun-hye. It shows a photo-shopped image of the presidential candidate performing the dance moves of "Gangnam Style" and labels her as a devoted admirer of the Yushin system of autocratic rule set up by her father, Park Chung-hee.[233][234] A few weeks later, "草泥马 style" (literally, "Grass Mud Horse Style"),[note 3][235] was uploaded onto YouTube and other Chinese websites by the political activist and dissident Ai Weiwei. In his parody, Ai Weiwei dances "Gangnam Style" with a pair of handcuffs as a symbol of his arrest by Chinese authorities in 2011. According to the Associated Press, goverment authorities had removed the video from almost all Chinese websites the next day.[235]

In order to show his solidarity with Ai Weiwei and to advocate the freedom of expression, the British sculptor Anish Kapoor produced the video Gangnam for Freedom, which features other prominent British artists as well as human rights activists from various international organisations including Index on Censorship and Amnesty International.[16] A few days before, the global grassroots network Students for a Free Tibet had uploaded a parody of "Gangnam Style" to show its support for the Tibetan independence movement. According to Max Fisher from The Washington Post, this parody of "Gangnam Style" was likely to be filmed in Dharamshala, the home of Tibet's government-in-exile in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.[236]

Greenpeace announced that it was "Going Gangnam, Greenpeace Style" in order to raise public awareness about illegal and unsustainable fishing practices off the coast of Mozambique. Activists from Greenpeace had parodied "Gangnam Style" onboard the organization's excursion yacht Rainbow Warrior.[237]

GCF Songdo Style

Songdo, a ubiquitous city 40 miles (65 km) west of Gangnam, was among five cities vying for the right to host the Green Climate Fund (GCF), a project developed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to channel $100 billion a year from developed countries to help developing countries combat climate change.[238] During its campaign to win the right to host the GCF, the country's Presidential Committee on Green Growth produced a promotional video entitled "GCF Songdo Style by Psy" in which PSY recommends Songdo as the host city for the GCF. He announces that a "new paradigm" will begin at Songdo with the GCF and the video heralds "The beginning of Songdo Style" while "Gangnam Style" plays in the background.[239][240] On October 20, 2012, the Board of the GCF announced that Songdo had won the right to host the fund.[241]

In December 2012, the Department of Health in the Philippines launched a "Gangnam Style" dance campaign against the use of firecrackers to celebrate the New Year.[242] Janine Tugonon, 2012 Miss Universe 1st runner-up, joined and danced on one of their campaign at Pandacan, Manila.[243] According to the Department's Assistant Secretary, Dr. Eric Tayag, the popularity of the song will attract people especially children to use safer means of celebration such as dancing "Gangnam Style".[242] In contrast, the Philippine National Police was confirming intelligence reports about a firecracker named "Gangnam bomb", which supposedly produced by illegal firecracker makers in Bocaue, Bulacan and apparently riding on the popularity of the song.[244] According to Chief Superintendent Raul Petrasanta, director of the Firearms and Explosives Office of the Philippine National Police, he did not know what the possibly dangerous[245] "Gangnam bomb" looks like.[244]

Muhammad Rahim al Afghani, a close associated of Osama bin Laden currently held at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, had also used the song to demonstrate his ability to gain access to popular cultural trends despite being confined within a top secret prison. In a letter to his lawyer, Muhammad wrote, "I like this new song Gangnam Style. I want to do the dance for you but cannot because of my shackles."[246]

Consequences

The success of "Gangnam Style" is a result of the build-up of South Korea's music industry that has been in the works for over 20 years,[281] and it has led to other K-pop artists positioning themselves for a similar breakthrough in the U.S. music industry.[282] Frances Moore, chief executive of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, brought up Gangnam Style as an example of how South Korea became one of the "most successful exporters of repertoire".[283]

Increased interest in the Korean wave

According to the news agency Agence France-Presse, the success of "Gangnam Style" has led to the further rise and spread of the Korean wave to other countries.[284] As the song continued to attract worldwide media attention, it also led to various broadcasting networks and national newspapers focusing its attention on K-pop and other aspects of Korean culture. For example, The Daily Telegraph published an article recommending its readers to try out everything from K-Pop to "K-Cars", "K-Phones" and "K-Cuisine".[285] The British multinational grocery and retailer Tesco reported that its total sales of Korean food had more than doubled as a result of the popularity of "Gangnam Style".[286] Kim Byoung-gi, the Korean Ambassador to Lebanon, wrote that "Gangnam Style" has helped bridge Lebanese and Korean cultures.[287] The French-born political commentator Tim Soutphommasane, a Research fellow at Monash University, agrees that the Gangnam phenomenon is "something worth studying". According to Soutphommasane, the world is only beginning to appreciate Gangnam Style as "part of a broader hallyu cultural wave coming out of the country [South Korea]".[288]

South Korea

In 2012, the South Korean government announced that "Gangnam Style" had brought in $13.4 million to the country’s audio sector, and it subsequently lanched a campaign to further expand the K-Pop music industry overseas.[289] According to the Bank of Korea, the country's services account recorded a surplus of USD 2.3 billion in the first nine months of this year, compared to a deficit of USD 4.5 billion last year. This was mainly due to the growing influence and popularity of K-pop songs such as "Gangnam Style".[290] However, the American journalist John Seabrook noted that by "satirizing standard K-pop tropes in Gangnam Style", PSY may have subverted the music genre's chances of making it big in the West.[291]

Music industry

Record executives in the music industry believe that music charts will increasingly be filled with YouTube-driven globalised acts from foreign countries. Sean Carey, a research fellow in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Roehampton, wrote that the flow of popular music will no longer be a single traffic route from North America and Europe to other parts of the globe, but will also move the other way as well.[292] According to Adam Sherwin from The Independent, the global web demand for Gangnam Style had short-circuited the "traditional reluctance" of radio stations to play foreign-language songs.[293] The song is also underlining a shift in how money is being made in the music business.[294] Although PSY earned more than US$60,000 from music sales of "Gangnam Style" in South Korea alone, he and his music label YG Entertainment have raked in almost US$1 million from advertisements which appear on YouTube videos indentified for using "Gangnam Style" in its content. The Harvard Business Review published an article written by Kevin Evers, who explained how "Gangnam Style" had changed Billboard's ranking methodology of its music charts. Instead of relying solely on radio plays and paid purchases, Billboard started to place a heavier emphasis on digital sales and YouTube views.[295] As a result of the change, Gangnam Style moved up to the top position of Billboard's Hot Rap Songs music chart.[296] According to The BPI's report based on Official Charts Company sales data, thanks to PSY's song and Carly Rae Jepsen’s "Call Me Maybe," pop became the UK’s favourite musical genre of the year, taking the lion’s share of the singles market (38.5%) in 2012.[297]

Online's No. 1 pick on the top 10 pop songs of 2012 list.[313] Digital Spy ranked the song No. 20 among the 20 best singles of the year.[314]

Upon its release, "Gangnam Style" was an enormous hit. The song went straight to number one on the Gaon Singles Chart on the fourth week of July, 2012, with 816,868 digital downloads,[330][331] and spent five consecutive weeks at the top position of the chart, tying it with IU's "Good Day" for the most weeks at number one single in the chart's history.[332] In addition, the song became the first place winner on various weekly chart shows such as M!

The single made its chart debut on the New Zealand Singles Chart at number 21 on September 3, 2012.[341] After two weeks, the song reached in the top ten and the following week topped the chart, becoming the first K-pop song and the first foreign language song in three decades to achieve that feat since German band Nena's "99 Luftballoons" hit the top spot in March 1982.[342] The song remained atop the chart for two consecutive weeks before being deposed of the top spot by One Direction's "Live While We're Young". After one week of the band's reign, "Gangnam Style" regained its number one position and stayed at the top spot for a further four weeks, tallying a total of six non-consecutive weeks atop the chart.

Mallika Rao of The Huffington Post wrote that the video was "apparently retrofitted here to work from a woman's point of view, but the main difference we're spotting is less invisible horse riding and more sultry side-eyeing."[450] As of January 2013[update], the accompanying music video has garnered over 230 million views on YouTube.[451]

The Website Counting Down to Gangnam Style’s Billionth Hit Turned to Porn Ads When It Happened Max Read View Profile Email Facebook Twitter Google Plus RSS

If you were counting down to "Gangnam Style"'s one billionth YouTube view on the site BillionCount.com, you might have been a little confused at what happened when the counter hit 1,000,000,000: it turned into a porn site: the "Xpress Cougar Dating Club." "When it was getting closer to 1 billion views I figured I had to do something with it," the site's creator told us.

BillionCount.com, a site set up solely to provide an approximate countdown to the exact moment at which "Gangnam Style" would hit one billion views, had been shared several thousand times on Facebook and Twitter by 10:26 a.m. — the moment when it estimated that the video had surpassed a billion. It now redirects to the self-proclaimed "#1 Sex Dating Site" on the internet, as many people noticed:

The website tracking when Gangnam Style would hit a billion views automatically turned to porn ads when it happened. Well played, Internet.

— Keith Calder (@keithcalder) December 21, 2012

The site is registered to a Eugene Hartley of Los Angeles. I emailed him to see what the story was. "To be honest it was just a serious project in the beginning, and at the end I wanted to promote Bitcoin [the independent digital currency] through it," he wrote back. "[I] couldn't find a real good way to do so. When it was getting closer to 1 billion views I figured I had to do something with it but wasn't really sure what." So he made a choice that webmasters have been making since time immemorial: "It was either let the site die off, or try to get some money through promoting dating sites."

And what better way to close out the year in the internet, really? A failed attempt at attaching a bitcoin promotion to the year's biggest viral video, now just a bunch of "adult dating site" ads.

The sound of a walrus pair mating was a distant second place, and Paris Hilton having an orgasm was third.Unfortunately gangnam style spurned a meme which spanned the internet in a matter of days. Its popularity is attributable to dull-normal Caucasians, who largely seem to find the "asian" pop aspect novel and funny. The producer of the sound does not mind, because he has made a fortune.The sound thoroughly appeals to 6-8 year-olds, although some teens have attempted exploiting and emulating the accompanying dance for kicks (or an attempt to get laid) at parties.Less enjoyable than Katy Perry, and marginally more enjoyable than a saucer of dog shit. May be used by the military as an interrogation technique when played on loop.My six year old brother loves Gangnam style.Look at that drunkard, doing Gangnam style.

What’s mean Gangman?

Mattiasohman

gangnam is an popluar party district in Seul, Korea.

Dmksdks23

There is Korean district south of the Han River

sarang_kormom

Kangnam/Gangnam is a district located in Seoul city. Located near the river. Kang/Gang is RIVER nam is SOUTH. You can name it as a Beverly Hills or just Los Angeles or NY.

http://twitter.com/LuvDaKworld LuvDaKworld

what’s Gangman?

aliesh

Gangnam is a district in Seoul… Have you heard of Gangnam station and Gangnam shopping malls~~?

IceBeam

Not until now :)

peanut

sorry for interrupt.. i just know gangnam by watching running man where by there is an episode that they used gangnam station as their mission’s location.. i think for the beginner like me, you better watch running man because lots of infos about south korea you can get from that variety show..

beds

Gangnam is name of river

Fromseoul

This is a tip from a Seoul local.
Technically, ‘Gangnam’ means Seoul south of the Han River. (gang=river, nam=south)
But in general sense, when Koreans say Gangnam, they refer to a particular district called ‘Gangnam-gu’.
This district, or gu, is one of the most well-off areas in Seoul, and here you can see the fanciest buildings and the busiest workers and students in Korea. As you might expect,

Seocho

Not really. When people say Gangnam, they refer to the three gus that are south to the Han river, not the particular Gangnam-gu. In fact, one of the most popular subway station Gamnam-yeok is located in Seocho-gu.

Gabbygabby Gabby

Well, it depends on what they are saying. Usually Gangnam refers to the rich district called Gangnam-gu in Seoul, but sometimes it can mean all three districts. I believe this song is referring to the Gangnamgu district cuz this place is like Beverley Hills in Korea, a lot ritzier than those other districts below Han-River.

dd

Actually, Gangnam-yeok is located between Seocho-gu and Gangnam-gu.

Jes

Psy did an interview in which he explained “Gangnam Style”. He said it meant, and I quote, “Noble at daytime, and crazy at nighttime.”

Fromseoul

There are also many nightclubs where you can enjoy your nightlife. That’s why both the girl and the boy in the lyrics get excited as it gets dark. They’re looking forward to going clubbing after work, so to speak.

Seanmcloughlin7

Gangnam is a rich district in Seoul so he’s referring to himself as being a rich guy or a guy with gangnam style. 

christina

Not really. Psy explained that gangnam is a district that is noble on the day and crazy at night. So when he refers on himself. He meant that he is “refined” by day but crazy by night. Just like the type of girlfriend he is looking for.

JJ

This is weird and random but I know a guy called shane mcgloughlin and I thought you were him!

kat

 you mistranslated “뛰는 놈, 그 위에 나는 놈”…It has a proverbial meaning of “there is always a flyer above the jumper…”

ang

It’s great that Gangnam Style is getting a ton of play! A friend of mine noticed that the English translation here has a few inaccuracies (some major, some minor), so he made an attempt to correct it.
Here’s a revised one with some notes:
Oppa’s Gangnam style1
Gangnam styleA girl who is warm and human by day2
A classy girl who knows how to relax with a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart heats up by night
A girl with that kind of twistI’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you by day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts by night
That kind of guyBeautiful, lovely
Yeah you, hey, yeah exactly you, hey
Beautiful, lovely
Yeah you, hey, yeah exactly you, hey
Shall we take it to the limit?Oppa’s Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa’s Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa’s Gangnam styleHeyyy sexy lady, Oppa’s Gangnam style
Heyyy sexy lady oh oh oh ohA girl who looks quiet but who gets down when she gets down
A girl who lets her hair loose when she feels it’s the right time
A girl who keeps covered but is sexier than girls who expose it all
A sensual3 girl like thatI’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but who gets down when he gets down
A guy who goes completely crazy when it’s the right time
A guy whose ideas bulge bigger than his muscles
That kind of guyBeautiful, lovely

Heyyy sexy lady oh oh oh ohAbove the man that runs, is the man that flies4 , baby baby
I’m a guy who knows a thing or two
Above the man that runs, is the man that flies, baby baby
I’m a guy who knows a thing or twoYou know what I’m sayin’
Oppa’s Gangnam styleHeyyy sexy lady, Oppa’s Gangnam styleHeyyy sexy lady oh oh oh oh*
Notes:
Contraction of “Oppa IS Gangnam style” (NOT “the Gangnam style that belongs to Oppa”). Put as a contraction for accuracy. It’s shortened in the Korean.When words like “warm” and “human” are used (the literal translations) they hold similar metaphorical meanings in Korean as they do in English – friendly, approachable, natural, and so on.NOT “sensible.” There is a huge difference!Literal translation. This is a proverb equivalent to “every man has his superior.” PSY’s saying that his talent is a tier above everyone else; he’s in a different league. “Run” can also be replaced with “jump” – the intended meaning is the same.

..

i swore i heard one shot but i didnt see any in this lyrics so i was like maybe i was wrong. but thanks anyways! yours better!

Zinzi

‘oppa’ means one’s order brother close order male’s simple call. …..someone wanna be called for wanna be close some waman, wanna be feels like younger.

Koreannemesis

OH best comments are here! you guys are korean??

Oosyhyun

‘oppa’ -> ‘oppan’
‘oppa’ is noun.
‘oppan’ is noun+verb.
oppan gangnam style.=oppa is gangnam style.

IceBeam

But WHAT does “oppa” mean? Why isn’t that translated? Is that an area as well? Someone said it meant ‘elder’ but that doesn’t make sense.

And is it “oppa” or “oppan” or does it just sound that way?

Non Koreans want to know :)

Hye jin

I think I can give you an answer for that. ( I’m korean and plz understand my English is awkward)
When a woman calls a man older than her, in western culture, she calls his name cause it’s appropriate. But in Korea, it is considered rude to call the person’s name. When the man is a bit older than her(up to 10 years?) she calls him “oppa’ instead of his name.

oppa = noun
oppa neun = oppa is
oppan = the shortened form of ” oppa is”

IceBeam

Thanks for replying!

So Hyuna might call Psy “oopa”
Oppa psy?
So “oppa” does sort of mean elder.

Still don’t quite understand why he says oppa gangnam.
If we change gangnam to “Beverly Hills” you wouldn’t say “elder Beverly Hills” I don’t think :-)

Merr

He said that calling him psy is inappropriate. So you replace psy by oppa. Its like saying “(this) Mister is Beverly Hills style”, referring to himself. Mister being what a girl would call an older man in English.

http://www.facebook.com/annabellekim321 Annabelle Kim

Yeah, that’s right although oppa doesn’t mean mister. It means big brother whether as in a bro friend or your related brother. A-jus-si means mister.

Lee

hi there~ just wanna help you understand.

“oppa is gangnam style” dose not means oppa’s name is “gang nam style” you better notice more on “style”. I don’t perfectly know how to say(I’m korean),but it means oppa is one of the member of resident in gangnam.

if you live in Beverly hills you would follow it’s fashion style and living style extra… like Beverly hills, in korea Gangnam is one of the region with high population of richs. they tend to be admired by others for their highly treated culture.

http://www.facebook.com/annabellekim321 Annabelle Kim

Well, oppa doesn’t nescessarily mean elder. It means big brother whether as in a bro friend or your related brother. A-jus-si means elder or mister. And it’s oppan as in english would be oppa’s. And the ‘s is a contraction for oppa is, not a possessive. Also, the gist of the song is he a nice classy guy who loves the sexy, classy women of Gangnam. (Fact: Gangnam is ONE of the high class, wealthiest districts of South Korea. So all that translated is “Big brother’s Gangnam style”.

Jay

Oppa always means elder. An oppa is an male who is slightly older than you (if you happen to be female), who you consider to be as close as a brother.

Now, what’s confusing is that a girl can call an older guy “oppa” even if she DOESN’T consider him to be a close friend/family member/boyfriend/etc. There are too many different examples of when this might happen, but for this song, think of an American “sugar daddy.” Any girl can start calling some random older guy “sweetie” or “daddy” or “baby,” even if she doesn’t know him at all, because she wants to use him, flatter him, and make him buy her things. Now, this song doesn’t explicitly talk about that sort of thing, but I’d say it has a twinge of it, what with the “Gangnam Style” being being rich, having expensive designer clothes, the song being from a man to a woman.

http://www.facebook.com/annabellekim321 Annabelle Kim

Thanks, but I know, I’m Korean. I know you’re just trying to help, and I acknowledge that. But it seems that you misunderstood what I meant. Even if it was what I meant, notice I wrote necessarily, not isn’t or never.

http://www.facebook.com/william.d.ziemer William Dean Ziemer

I doubt there’s a language that can be translated verbatem into another language. To learn another language, you do better to focus on the idea being translated rather than each individual word.

http://www.facebook.com/william.d.ziemer William Dean Ziemer

For example, You wouldn’t want to translate, “Who’s your daddy?” word for word into another language. You would only confuse those who you were trying to comunicate with.

jnzooger

Oppan Gangnam style…would be like Older brother is Beverly Hills style.

http://www.facebook.com/william.d.ziemer William Dean Ziemer

Concise! I like it Jin.

http://www.facebook.com/sam.pak.39 Sam Pak

sorry but “neun” can’t be translated as verb.It’s suffix after a subject.In korean a verb does not come btn a subject and object.”는” 은 접속사입니다.

sarang_kormom

“Oppa” is way how to give respect to someone who is older than you. (If youre a girl). In Korea they call their older brother or a guy who is a close friend OPPA if your a GIRL.
Boys who has older brother or a friend that is a BOY calls them HYEONG.
Unlike in western countries they call people by names whether if their older or younger than you except for relatives.

CakeyAsian

Freaking… It means BROTHER!!!! you can’t look it up? OPPA!
Edit:… I’m Korean too…

Rammy

For the non-Korean speakers, it sounds like it basically means he (“he” being “Oppa,” or the older dude) is still badass / cool / trendy. Gangnam Style being a reference to Gangnam District which I is considered a trendy / upper-class / wealthy area of Seoul. This is clearly with a good sense of humor since he’s a goofball :)

CakeyAsian

ok….

elle

oppa means older brother if you are a girl. however, in slang terms, girls call their boyfriends oppa b/c it’s an affectionate term. and guys like it. kinda like how americans say “daddy” or “papi”…

Asd^

Actually, oppan isn’t noun + verb, its noun + topic particle, so it comes down to “oppa is gangnam style”, but its literally like “about oppa: gangnam style” there isnt a verb in the sentence.

QQ

Great job!!
BTW, I’m livin’ in Gangnam. lol
So, I’m the man with Gangnam style!! lol

Jay

Nah! You just live there and have a hell of a lot of debt.

lolwatsauce

zeynep ayz

dear koreans please stop doing music. this isn’t your job.

Kimchiman

this ‘Brother’

http://twitter.com/CocaColaKungfu To Infinity & Beyond

anyone got them lyrics in phonetic korean i wanna sing a long

Sav

i love this video!! lol!!! its so funny! and the song is soo catchy!!

Mr. Bear

Anyone else noticed that the Korean for “I’m a man who knows a thing or two” sounds a lot like “I don’t know” ?

http://twitter.com/Geronomnom Geronomnom Pinskov

because it was translated wrong, it’s more like “Baby baby I’m a man who knows things.”

http://www.facebook.com/annabellekim321 Annabelle Kim

Haha, well now that you mention it… Its technically “ah-nun-nom” though. Well, how you spell it phonectically.

kyu’s wife

oppan gangnam style..wop..wop..wop..

Waygookin

The literal definition of ‘oppa’ is older brother (as said by a younger sister, younger brothers say hyung). But Koreans often use family terms such as this to show respect or a close connection (for example, Koreans will use the words for aunt and uncle to refer to older people, even though they are unrelated). So it’s very common for a Korean girl to call her older male friends or her boyfriend ‘oppa.’

The literal definition of ‘kangnam’ is south of the river (kang = river, nam = south). But in this case, kangnam is referring to a district in Seoul that is famous for its wealth and its nightlife.

Style just means style.

Putting it all together, he is basically saying to all the ladies (he is ‘oppa’) that his ‘syle’ is hip and wealthy (kangnam).

choi

In Korean, the term 오빠 (“oppa”) is used by a female to refer to an elder male, it literally means “elder brother”.

http://cisudenitheworld.blogspot.com/ Endroine

Doesnt he say saram hea or something, not sana-i ? And saram means person, never heard of the word sana-i. And im pretty sure i have heard all the ways of saying guy or person or something o-o

Novo

‘sana-i’ means a guy too, but have a little different nuance.
It means a guy who is manly, brave… that kind of man…

http://cisudenitheworld.blogspot.com/ Endroine

oooh! thanks for the inf =3

http://www.limonbay.com/ Piercing

Thanks for the lyrics!! I love this band!

cpei

trackback from my blog, i copied and shared ur romanized and english lyric! Thanks for sharing~ :D Like this song so muchhhhhh

CakeyAsian

It’s OPPA not OPPAN!

Haneul

in the song he says oppan. Oppa neun, oppan. get it?

CakeyAsian

No, in the song, he said oppa gangnam… not oppa neun… OPPA GANGNAM STYLE. OPPA. The `is` is NOT included in the original lyrics!

diqi

You’re wrong.. the correct is OPPAN.. oppan is an abbreviation of “oppa neun” that means “oppa is”

CakeyAsian

Then why does he say OPPA? If it was oppan, he would’ve SAID oppan…

SariRainMJ

He does say “oppan”. That’s why so many people hear “open.”

CakeyAsian

Well, then you should go tell that to him, because he must be saying it wrong then… Especially in the other videos where he only says it.. instead of singing it.

CakeyAsian

And really… Who has to romanize STYLE?!

Seung Yu

Instead of “I’m a guy” which wouldn’t carry the implication of ‘macho man’ of 사나이, I suggest using “Real man” or “Macho man.”

Jay

Yep….. “I’m a guy” doesn’t sound quite right. I would say “I’m a man who” or “I’m a male who.”

Jeff

Here is the meaning of “Oppan Gangnam style” once and for all:

The word “oppa” (literally older brother) is an informal title like
“daddy” and “mommy” in English. This title, “oppa,” can be used only by a
girl when she calls out to or talks to either (1) her real older
brother in her family, or (2) a male friend slightly older than she is
(not older than, very roughly, 10 years, in which case the title
“a-jo-ssi,” literally uncle, would be more appropriate). For the second
use, the older male friend does not necessarily have to be her
boyfriend, although he can be. “Oppa” conveys a sense of warm
friendship, so all Korean guys love to be called “oppa” by younger
girls–especially by those they find attractive. As for what the
difference between “oppa” and “oppan” is, “oppan” simply means “oppa
is.” So “Oppan Gangnam style” means “(girls!) Older brother is Gangnam
style,” and Gangnam is the richest district in Korea full of expensive
condos many of which are well over US $2 million dollars.

Also, just in case some of you are curious, as for titles boys use, boys
similarly use the title “hyung” (literally older brother) to call out
to or talk to either their real older brother or a male slightly older
than they are and likewise use the title “nuna” (literally older sister)
to call out to or talk to their real older sister or a female slightly
older than they are.

The reason Koreans use titles instead of names even when talking to
people slightly older than they are is that Koereans are heavily
influenced by the philosopher Confucius. He taught people to respect
older people because older people, in general, possess more life
experiences and thus more wisdom than younger people do. This age
etiquette shouldn’t sound strange to people of western culture either,
for even westerners, in general, think it is rude for a child to call
his or her parents by first name. Koreans extend this age etiquette to
all spheres of relationships in which any age difference exists. Even a
mere one-year difference matters especially among students and the
younger one must refer to the older one using a title, or just as
commonly, by using a name followed by an appropriate title (for example,
Jason oppa! Paul hyung! Mary nuna! John a-jo-ssi!).

Haneul

Thank you for knowing what you’re talking about!
Just… thank you for not just looking it up on google translate or something. thank you for actually understanding.

Style over substance should be a logical fallacy. It doesn’t matter HOW it’s said. It matters WHAT is said.

If you want to slam him for using homophobic slurs without knowing anything about the person in question, do that, but spare us your idiotic ‘concern’ and vapors there, cupcake.

The fainting couch is in the other room. Use it, m’kay?

Saying this guy is jealous has no substance, and adding insults on top as filler didn’t do much to add substance to it.

i was stationed in korea for a year… good luck learning hongul!!! plus since the past 10 years that i have been back, this has been the only real time i would need to have translated i suppose

You mean “Hangeul”. Takes a couple of days to learn the script.

Bong kyoon on

I only signed up to thank you for that explaination.
That was fascinating!

JJ Project

Ingy

Right lets all fucking love Jeff, Jeff the teacher of korean language!!! BORING!!! I HATE YOU FUCKING JEFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haha

hahhahahhahahha!

Vnoa Zol

FYI wikipedia is written by people and not coincidence. even moron like yourself can write in it.

Wiki-tributor

Sure, but then, non-morons like myself will correct your mistakes and repair your vandalism. FYI.

Vnoa Zol

proving yourself to be a non-moron has just proven yourself of being a real moron. how did u come up to conclude that i was vandalizing wiki. FYI, i am used to be a topnotch Wikify Project -editor who correct your correcting mistakes activities.

Travis Dykes

From your reply, Im getting that either your first language is not English or you have little grasp of English grammar. If its the second option, why are you calling people morons?

Vnoa Zol

from what you have said 1.) are you trying to prove that you are an english language teacher? coz i am not here to defend myself on that matter. i was only telling “boo boo” that while he accuses “Jeff” of plagiarism from wiki then i made him aware that wiki’s articles are written by people that even a moron like himself can write in it. 2.) i call “boo boo” a moron bcoz literally a.) his name means “stupid” in my native language which is equal to “A person of subnormal intelligence” which is moron of course. b.) in my little grasp of Korean language Jeff’s explanation is absolutely right in which to “boo boo” he just looks even so stupid.

So from your reply and intervention, I am getting that you are either policing this space or simply a gay faggot.

NB: i can speak, write & communicate in simple english, spanish, korean, arabic, filipino and malay. how about you professor?

Guest

is it possible to be a non-gay “faggot”?

Vnoa Zol

for some reason, yes.

JoshGroff

I was under the impression that bundles of sticks can’t feel emotions. Thus forth, faggots can not be gay.

Ingy

A FAGGOT IS A SAUSAGE THING!!

Youseff

Write at least one word in Arabic if you can!

*you’re*your*

You may be able to speak simple english, but you seriously shouldn’t pick up the bad text talk language habbits. It makes a post hard to read, as well as making you look like the pot calling the kettle black.

Chances are I wouldn’t have bothered and would have carried the misconception with me. By someone having posted it, I was interested enough to continue reading. Google and Wiki are good sources, but often times, I’m simply not interested enough in something to follow up.

Chae

Oh, even better.

To not care about other cultures IS ignorant – ignorant of the values necessary for the future of society as a whole.

Ciyxx

i call bullshit! Its not ignorant to not care about other cultures. What is ignorant is to think that everyone else has to care because you care!

????

Ignorant:uninformed; unaware;due to or showing lack of knowledge or training

So being ignorant doesn’t mean you don’t care, it just means you don’t know and go around showing your lack of knowledge. But not caring? That’s just plain stupid. There are 7 billion people in this world. If you don’t at least respect cultural differences, you’re going to lead a very sad, very lonely life.

Guest

Very nice and loveable song….I like its Music & Dance Style too.!!

Ciyxx

i call bullshit! Its not ignorant to not care about other cultures. What is ignorant is to think that everyone else has to care because you care!

cm

@Chae: No. Being ignorant does not equal being uninterested. I’m interested in several things: computer programming, music composition, mathematics, and Japanese culture to name a few. I am uninterested in a staggering number of things, most other cultures included in that, as well as history, politics, and law. As you say, this is because I’m “ignorant of the values necessary for the future of society…”. I contend that I am indeed fully aware of the “values necessary for the future of society,” some of which are history, politics, law, and culture in general, but I perceive the world in relation to numbers, data, audio. I could care less about most everything else, and to change apathy is to change one’s interests determined by the construct of one’s mind. I advocate diversity and open-mindedness because they help us to understand new perspectives in order to make strides in our own personal quests for knowledge, whether those adventures lead to making public policy or conducting scientific research. And so to imply that you’re open-minded by caring about other cultures and simultaneously criticizing another person’s interests (or lack thereof; it’s the same) seems pretty contradictory, doesn’t it?

kota

so wait.. out of all you just said, you’re pretty much saying not to criticize someone for not caring, cuz people who don’t care are going on a personal quest for knowledge? just how does that work??

sarita

true

JoshGroff

To simplify it, different people care about different things, just because you don’t care about something doesn’t make you ignorant.

Actually, this is really close to Japanese culture — pretty much the same thing with social titles, just different words.

*Emily Cruz*

Whats jealous and faggot

Explainer

Jealous comes from the verb, “jealousy,” or, “to be jealous,” and refers to an envious emotion which also accompanies a simultaneous maliciousness or conscious/subconscious wishes of an ill-fate for the other party.

yup thats me

what does this look like a dictionary club?

Aimee

nyehehheheh XD

oh yeah

Aimee

nyehehheheh XD

oh yeah

Explainer

A “faggot,” is literally a bundle of sticks. It used to refer to an old lady who was evil or disliked. Later on it was used to refer to an old lady who was a burden on her family/carers.
Nowadays, “faggot,” is usually used to refer to a male (usually homosexual) who enjoys receiving erected penises either on his body or in various body cavities, or who engages in sexual activities with penises.
I hope this was helpful and informative :-)

http://www.facebook.com/DaveSmith354 David James Smith

A faggot can also be an approximately spherical ball of meat and onions, usually served with either mushy peas or onion gravy. I think the bundle of sticks is the older definition though.

NocturnoCulto

Okay yeah so it’s just like Japanese folk using senpai/oni-chan/ ___-kun, etc. depending on age-specific circumstance in relationship, makes sense. sinec the Confucian influence applies throughout East Asia, its logical they each have their own parallel. Do the Chinese possess their own manner of prefix/suffixes such as this?

kp2012

Sure, Confucius was Chinese. And the Chinese equivalent of Oppa is 哥, pronounced ge1 (Putonghua) or go1 (Cantonese)

Dudes seriously I can not stop listening to this! What makes this so epic?! It is true that Gangnam Style is so epic and crazy to dance too. A three point five song is like getting a C+ so that is a good grade for a song. This song is hilarious when the person is in the elevator rofl! XD this song should deserve an A- in my own little opinion. I know the dance it is extremely hilarious. Oppa Gangnam Style!!! Also I play Free Realms as Roselyn Pearlflower so see ya on the game folks :)

Thank you for the explanation. In India they also use terms such as -ji (i.e. Sawmiji, Babaji) or in Japanese -san (i.e. Siroko-san, Yoko-san) It’s a lovely practice.

Zack

Awesome description and right on. One more thing to add is that he’s poking fun of the Gagnam riche (think Bev Hills) hence the funny dance and attitude, i.e. it’s totally ironic which makes it cool. He’s basically saying look at me, I’m a simple goofy boy, and way better than the superficial Gangnam people. Really a clever song, glad to see he hit it big.

anonymous

thanks! this was super helpful.

Kevin Song

dude take a chill pill

jec0514

Thanks! That explains a lot of the meaning behind the song and its lyrics. I know a little about Korean culture since I have some cousins who are half Korean. I love this song! Saw and heard about this song for the first time on “The View” talk show one day by chance (since I rarely watch the show…lol…); loved it!!! I think it’s stupid though that some people are taking the dance-offs to an extreme and using violence over it. I mean it’s a good dance song, and has okay lyrics, so why not just have fun and dance it off? (lol) instead of shotting and stabbing each other over it.

Nani

you should know they do not call oppa to their mother or father, for that they use omma and appa.. and older brother is hyung… oppa is only for girls to use calling their brothers, friends and boyfriends…

http://twitter.com/hunterray55 pwned apple

For all those people that are criticizing this guy, half of us wouldn’t even think of helping people out by giving info

Effram

I am baffled as to why people would downvote this. I thought it was really informative.

kelly.edge

what the heck are you saying

TonyB

Explained very well. I’m a former soldier stationed in Korea around ’08-09. I loved, as a “Westerner,” seeing the respect everyone had for each other in day-to-day life. That being said, for us “Westerners…,”

The dude is cat-callin’ to the “hey, sexy ladies.” Hey honeys, I’m Gangnam Style, like, I’m from Compton/Badass, Hollywood/Rich-Famous.

Nat-Geo would explain it as one male species attempting to show his financial prowess in an effort to lure his mate.

TonyB

I also believe he mentions in the lyrics that he may not have big muscles but his ideas are big. Meaning he knows he lacks typical male attraction traits but “pleads” to the ladies to make a deal with him, trade brawn for brain, a real man for a “Gangnam style” man who compromises his manhood by begging women to be with him.

Ingy

Jesus, shut up, Jeff, if that is even your real name, you don’t have to write 50 paragraphs for the meaning of “oppa gangnam style” if i wanted an explanation i would just google it!!!! SO SHUT UP!!!!! There is only three things you can say with comments: 1) You can criticise the thing shown above.

2) You can congratulate the thing shown above.

3) Agree or disagree with someone’s comment.

BUT YOU NEVER EXPLAIN WHAT THE THING ABOVE MEANS BECAUSE NOONE WANTS TO KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!……except stupid Zack.

Thank You for that AWESOME explanation, I thought this song was just another STUPID trend, but the song means something to me now. I have always thought that people of Korean, Chinese, Japanese, etc., decent have some much more respect for people than other cultures, they are also more mentally advanced, that is why they are all so much smarter and work harder (generally, but probably with a few exceptions).

terrific

http://twitter.com/Geronomnom Geronomnom Pinskov

Jeff explained it pretty well.
And all of those who might question this lyrics translation should be at ease. The lyrics was translated quite well,
except “on top of running man is the flying man”, because it directly came from a Korean proverb and has a lot of cultural context. What does this mean in English? “Diamonds cut diamonds”, “There may be blue and better blue” can be the closest. In this context a Korean man in Gangnam style is MOST LIKELY the “better blue” than just blue (regular Korean man), because he’s got such swag and style, so the following lyrics “Baby baby, I know some about you (NOT ‘a man who knows a thing or two’)” says he’s superior to the other regular Korean man. Yes, so this “Oppa” in Gangnam style is showing off to the girl he is flirting with, as you suppose.

Rofl

@19df38c45646a4eec1a6c9a816d21706:disqus
basically you told us that koreans are retards, since none in western world have words like these, for situations like these.

Lofr

Maybe it is the Western world which has the problem buddy. Only in white culture is being respectful seen as a bad thing. The opposite of pretty much everywhere else on this planet.

shallow song. all about materialism, sex, blink-blink.
no soul at all.
no wonder young kids nowadays are getting so shallow & degrading in morale, behavior, attitude, and minds..

Hyori-Woo

Is not OPPA it is OPPAN. a short form to say I AM (oppaneun) so when he says OPPAN GANGNAM STYLE
it can be most closely translated to I AM GANGNAM STYLE. and fits more to the meaning of the lyrics/video.

koreanfan

oppa doesnt only means elder brother for a girl to call a guy, but is also being used to call your boyfriend. normally in love relationship, the girlfriend will call the boyfriend “oppa”. n the bf also will refer to himself as oppa. like, gf: hi oppa. how are you today? bf: hi. oppa is good. oppa is eating now. smthg like this =)

Gangnam style si kuya, Gangnam style

Si Nene ay mainit at mapagmahal sa tuwina
Simpleng babae, alam kung paano magsaya sa pag-inum ng kape
Babaeng mainit magmahal sa pagdating ng gabi
Babaeng may ganyang pagbabago

Ako’y isang lalaki
Lalaking mapagmahal tulad mo sa tuwina
Lalaking isang lagok ang kape kahit na mainit
Lalaking naguumapaw ang pagmamahal sa pagdating ng gabi

Yan ang uri ng lalaki

Gwapito, kaibig-ibig
Ikaw nga, Hoy, Ikaw nga, Hoy
Gwapito, kaibig-ibig
Ikaw nga, Hoy, Ikaw nga, Hoy
Ngayon atin nang wakasan

Gangnam style si kuya, Gangnam style
Gangnam style si kuya, Gangnam style
Gangnam style si kuya

Eh- Gandang Babae, Kuya ay Gangnam style
Eh- Gandang Babae, oh oh oh oh

Ang Babaeng tahimik ngunit mapaglaro sa kanyang laro

Ang babaeng nilulugay ang buhok sa pagdating takdang oras

Ang babaeng tinatakpan ang sarili ngunit masmaganda kung makikita lahat.

kapansin-pansin ang babaeng ganyan

ako’y isang lalaki
Ako’y lalaking kalmadong tingnan ngunit mapaglaro sa kanyang laro

Ang lalaking sobrang baliw kung ang takdang oras ay dumating

Ang lalaking naguumapaw sa ideya kaysa kalamnan

Yan ang uri ng lalaki

Gwapito, kaibig-ibig
Ikaw nga, Hoy, Ikaw nga, Hoy
Gwapito, kaibig-ibig
Ikaw nga, Hoy, Ikaw nga, Hoy
Ngayon atin nang wakasan

Gangnam style si kuya, Gangnam style
Gangnam style si kuya, Gangnam style
Gangnam style si kuya

Eh- Gandang Babae, Kuya ay Gangnam style
Eh- Gandang Babae, oh oh oh oh

Sa taas ng tumatakbong lalaki ay lumilipad na lalaki, bata bata

Ako’y lalaking alam ang isa o dalawa

Sa taas ng tumatakbong lalaki ay lumilipad na lalaki, bata bata

Ako’y lalaking alam ang isa o dalawa

Alam mo kung ano ang sinasabi ko.

Gangnam style si kuya

Eh- Gandang Babae, Kuya ay Gangnam style

I think this lyrics misses some nuance from the vocabulary that Psy intentionally chose.

A girl who is tender and big-hearted
during the day

A girl who is classy enough to take her time to enjoy a cup of coffee

A girl whose heart burns fiery when the night comes

A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a macho man (“Sanaye is not a common everday word for “man”. It is used only when to imply “strong and manly”)

who is as warm as you during the day
I’m a macho man who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down

I’m a macho man whose heart bursts when the night comes

I’m that kind of a stud

Beautiful, lovely

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

Beautiful, lovely

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

Now let’s go til the end

Oppa’n Gangnam style, Gangnam style

Oppa’n Gangnam style, Gangnam style

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

Oppa’n Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa’n Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but parties
hard when to party

A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes

A girl who keeps covered but is sexier than those who bear it all

That kind of sensible girl

I’m a macho man who seems reserved but parties when to party

A macho man who goes completely nuts when the right time comes

A macho man whose ideas bulge bigger than his muscles

That kind of man

Beautiful, lovely

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

Beautiful, lovely

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

Now let’s go til the end

Oppa’n Gangnam style, Gangnam style

Oppa’n Gangnam style, Gangnam style

Oppa’n Gangnam style

Oh, Oh, Oh

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

Over a running turd (Nome is a very contemptible word for “man”), is there a
flying turd, baby baby

I’m a turd who knows a thing or two

Over a running turd, is there a
flying turd, baby baby

I’m a turd who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying

Lol. A lot of non kpop fans complain of not knowing what oppa is. Just a tip, if you really want to know more about the word “oppa”, try watching korean series (romance) :) You can see how oppa is used by girls there :D

DJ Sycho

Awesome

Justanother Kpopfan

I’m really tired of people abusing Gangnam Style.

“The Korean slang ‘Gangnam Style’ refers to a luxurious lifestyle, associated with Gangnam district, an affluent and trendy ar
ea of Seoul.”

Gangnam Style isn’t something you use to caption pictures of a middle-aged Asian man doing embarrassing things, or a replacement for “swagger”.

The music video shows PSY dancing a comical horse-riding dance and appearing in unexpected locations such as an outdoor yoga session and hot tub. The “skewering of the Gangnam image” by the “non-Gangnam PSY” is recognizable to Korean viewers, but those less familiar with the cultural context have found the video “fresh” amidst the teen pop idol groups increasingly popular with overseas viewers.

That’s it. Psy is showing us the complete opposite of Gangnam Style. That’s the joke.

And Hyuna’s version? She’s imitating the girls in Gangnam by being overly cute, and Psy is acting like guys in Gangnam who’re attracted to these sorts of women.

Jamie

I’m Korean, and I think the translation really makes sense, when i compare it to korean lyrics. Best translation :D

dhea chachdablek

oppa gangnam style

SmileyPAIN

The meaning behind the horse dance is that in Korea when someone says “lets go ride a horse” it is the equivalent to “lets go have a drink and have a good time.”

GyonG

Many people explained what is ‘oppa’ but ..
Oppa is used when girls call (slightly elder) guys, and also used when the guys refer themselves.

So, “Oppa is gangnam style” means:
“Hey girls, I am gangnam style.”

sejin

This is exactly perfect. i’m korean, and Oppa means i’m(psy) gangnam style

jcuevas

jcs-direct translations never work! as you know “grapefruit” is not “uva fruta”, but “toronja” in spanish! we should never dismiss learning a new language as USStateDept Dec2011 convocatory shows(mandarin,arabic,korean-prof profficiency-BloombergTV)

Romanized???? wtf what does that mean…cause that’s not romanian!!!!

Anonymous

*sigh* “In linguistics, romanization or latinization (or romanisation, latinisation: see spelling differences) is the representation of a written word or spoken speech with the Roman (Latin) script, or a system for doing so, where the original word or language uses a different writing system (or none). Methods of romanization include transliteration, for representing written text, and transcription, for representing the spoken word. The latter can be subdivided into phonemic transcription, which records the phonemes or units of semantic meaning in speech, and more strict phonetic transcription,
which records speech sounds with precision. Each romanization has its
own set of rules for pronunciation of the romanized words.”

Jeff , In bulgarian languige the meaning is the same like in korean. Oppa – batko – it mean some like a older brother from 2 up to 10 y.

Kevin

In the line: “A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee”
I would use “lesiure” rather than freedom. It’s actually the more literal translation and it fits better in meaning.
Freedom = 자유 (Ja-yu)
Leisure = 여유 (Yuh-yu)

The explanation below of some of the lyrics is much appreciated. Not unexpectedly, the lyrics do not reach the compelling level of the melody, choreography, and visuals. Psy has been around for a while but his “Gangman style” effort shows that novelty, invention, and energy have found a new prophet in pop music. I hope that Gangman style is not a one-hit wonder, but the first of many high energy pop compositions.

Hope

1) Obviously, it’s not ‘NOBODY’ who cares, because a lot of “SOMEBODIES” are commenting, cupcake.

2) If you don’t care, then why did you post, moron, and in an argumentative way? People who don’t care about something ignore it, but not you, cupcake. Nope you had to jump in, and like the scumbag idiot you are, whine with a sneer about something you supposedly don’t care about.

Are you just stupid, a hypocrite, or both?

Here is the meaning of “Oppan Gangnam style” once and for all:
The word “oppa” (literally older brother) is an informal title like
“daddy” and “mommy” in English. This title, “oppa,” can be used only by a
girl when she calls out to or talks to either (1) her real older
brother in her family, or (2) a male friend slightly older than she is
(not older than, very roughly, 10 years, in which case the title
“a-jo-ssi,” literally uncle, would be more appropriate). For the second
use, the older male friend does not necessarily have to be her
boyfriend, although he can be. “Oppa” conveys a sense of warm
friendship, so all Korean guys love to be called “oppa” by younger
girls–especially by those they find attractive. As for what the
difference between “oppa” and “oppan” is, “oppan” simply means “oppa
is.” So “Oppan Gangnam style” means “(girls!) Older brother is Gangnam
style,” and Gangnam is the richest district in Korea full of expensive
condos many of which are well over US $2 million dollars.
Also, just in case some of you are curious, as for titles boys use, boys
similarly use the title “hyung” (literally older brother) to call out
to or talk to either their real older brother or a male slightly older
than they are and likewise use the title “nuna” (literally older sister)
to call out to or talk to their real older sister or a female slightly
older than they are.
The reason Koreans use titles instead of names even when talking to
people slightly older than they are is that Koereans are heavily
influenced by the philosopher Confucius. He taught people to respect
older people because older people, in general, possess more life
experiences and thus more wisdom than younger people do. This age
etiquette shouldn’t sound strange to people of western culture either,
for even westerners, in general, think it is rude for a child to call
his or her parents by first name. Koreans extend this age etiquette to
all spheres of relationships in which any age difference exists. Even a
mere one-year difference matters especially among students and the
younger one must refer to the older one using a title, or just as
commonly, by using a name followed by an appropriate title (for example,
Jason oppa! Paul hyung! Mary nuna! John a-jo-ssi!)

It’s funny to me that this is considered legit music in Korea. I mean I love the song like everyone else, but I only like it cause it’s funny and all the dancing stuff. These comments are going on for so long (like on most comment sections about songs) because there’s always some guy who thinks his opinion is the best and anyone else’s is stupid.

Thanks for the information. Personally, I think the fact that most Americans don’t know 95% of the words in the song is why it is so popular, as well as it being extremely catchy.

6. PROFIT

Since you’re clearly too stupid to use Google, he pretty much said he likes the song and that the dancing part is his favorite.

gangnam style is ranked 2nd in america and 1st for the year in Korea. It is much like a Korean party rock anthem.

WHY CAN’T I READ IT IN KOREAN?!?

http://twitter.com/xiogen Xio Gen

You mean Hangul? Because most people can’t read Hangul and it’s hard to type in Hangul.
If you want to read it in Hangul, you could just copy and paste it into a Hangul romaji program.

Not telling

true Jeff

Vagina sex

Well that just ruins the whole song

A sensable girl like that

A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays

A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes

A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles

That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

if you think that i am a keyboard you are wrong so can you stop looking at me? thanks

PSY is a moron

In a sane world, South Koreans like PSY would recognize that they would be living in North Korea if not for American blood and treasure, and they would show a little gratitude.

optimus prime

i dont think america have ever fought north korea, trust me im an auotbot

Hello, most people who appreciate Jeff. Unfortunately, you all are stupid, because you could have just search it your self the information. And Who thinks Jeff is smart, well don’t tell me about it because obviously he copy and paste form any dictionary website or other ones. EVERYONE CAN DO IT TO, LAZY PEOPLE! No wonder this world doesn’t progress.

optimus prime

we’re all lazy its simple. jeff did research and published it here meaning he is the least laziest of us all here, he is our master and we must worship him

Meh

Meh, overrated song. Not even that great. And don’t bash me for my opinion. It’s not like I’m forcing it down your throat. It’s my OPINION, it’s what I think and I don’t need society to dictate what I can and cannot think. So if you want to curse me for my opinion, just know that I’m entitled to my opinion just as much as you are to your’s. So thanks, and have a nice day.

this song has subliminal msgs and its sad to see allot of kids singing and dancing along there was a man and i will not say his name he said the end of the world will be when the horse man dances and there will be 9 zeros following so this song has the man dancing with horses and the views will almost hit a billion and that equals 9 zeros after the one….. wake up people!

دختری که خودش را پوشش می دهد اما سکسی از یک دختر که bares آن را تمام است
یک دختر sensable مانند آن

من یک پسر
کسی که آرام به نظر می رسد، اما زمانی که او نقش بازی می کند
کسی که می رود به طور کامل دیوانه است که در زمان مناسب می آید
مرد است که امده ایده ها و نه از عضلات
این نوع از مرد

Logypop

The song isn’t really that good… If people knew what it meant they wouldn’t listen to it. I asked these Korean ladies an they said it was a social commentary on gangnam, a region in Korea. Similar to Hollywood.

Brandon

the beat was ment for the korean dictionary cause when you try to say it in enlish you’ll never get it to blend right

jeni

No

Curious

Although the song and the video definately weirded me out originally, I like this song, and this translation make me like it even more. :) Thanks for the translation!
