PSY: Gangnam Style. K-Pop FTW!

Yeah, well if you can’t beat them join them right? It’s taken PSY just 3 short months to rack up 160 million YouTube views. Where have you been?

You too will now be assimilated by the K-Pop super styling sensation of the one they used to call Bizarre Singer. The one the world now knows is PSY, the Gangnam Style guy!

Park Jae-Sang is better known by his stage name of PSY. He is a 35 year old rapper who creates ridiculous cheerful pop songs and who dances like a right bork, and who doesn’t give a toss about it! Me love the groovy groove sexy lady, gangnam style, oopa!

Me also love the video description long time too:  From 2 years of break, PSY is finally coming back with his 6th album ‘PSY6?’! The album’s weighty title song ‘Gangnam Style’ is composed solely by PSY himself from lyrics to choreography. The song is characterized by its strongly addictive beats and lyrics, and is thus certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy.

Dude, the man is going to be penetrating the very foundations of modern philosophy! And he is going to be doing it Gangnam Style! What a way to go 🙂

Here’s an alternate, but just as awesome version of the the song featuring sexy lady baby Korean singer Ms Hyuna. Super sexy long time too!

Park was born in South Korea on December 31, 1977 and later attended Banpo Elementary School, Banpo Middle School, and Sehwa(??) High School. He went on to attend both Boston University and Berklee College of Music.

He debuted in January 2001 with his full-length album titled PSY… From the Psycho World!, for which he later had to pay a fine due to accusations saying that the album contains “inappropriate content”. He was a rookie hip-hop singer that stirred up the Korean pop music scene with very blunt lyrics, peculiar dance moves and an unconventional appearance. Because of his unique style he was nicknamed the “Bizarre Singer”.

However, just five months after his album was released, Psy’s album was not allowed to be sold to juveniles as various civic groups complained that it potentially is a negative influence for the younger generation. Since then Psy has become a controversial artist as his second album Ssa 2 was banned in 2002 from being sold to those under the age of 19.

Later that year in September 2002, Psy released his third album by launching his new music on the Internet. The title song of Psy’s third album, “Champion”, saw great success as it was released just a few months after the World Cup games held in Seoul.

Why, thank you Wikipedia!
