If you are like me and like listening to the radio whilst working then you have probably heard of a song called Gangnam Style by PSY a Korean rapper. My family in Hong Kong has been listening to this song since August and kept telling me about it but I never knew what they were talking about until recently I kept hearing it on the radio. I am not going to lie, I love the song and the dance moves that go with it. It is just too funny and random.
You may noticed the singer is always wearing glasses, most of the videos I can find of him on YouTube he is wearing some sort of sunglasses so I am sure most people must think he has got a sunglasses fetish or something but as a matter of fact- no! He simply just hates his eyes so he is trying to hide them.
In the music video he only had two different pairs of sunglasses and yes I have watched it this many times just to learn the dance moves. Woops, I meant watch it so many times to check out his sunglasses. hehe.
If you ever wondered what Gangnam means it is actually a district in Seoul which is a city in South Korea. Gangnam is the place to go if you want to go out and party and it mainly attracts the younger crowd. The Gangnam area is supposed to be trendy, hip and happening with class but it is the people who go out there to socialise that give off this impression. People who are from there are not actually pretentious so this song it is just a bit of a joke and taking the mickey out of these type of pretentious people.
I wonder what brand of sunglasses he was wearing in the video? I bet he has helped to boost sales. Either way I like the song because it is so catchy and the dance moves just do it for me. I am going to have a Gangnam style dance off with my friends 😉 Click here to check out the full music video!
