Gangnam Style” first released on July 15, 2012, it entered the Gaon Chart singles chart at number one upon release. Within a month, it spreads all over the world and became the hottest K-Pop song! It has the most views in YouTube. It attracted 94,252,550 million hits as of today. The singer also became the first Korean musician to top the US iTunes music video charts, edging out superstars like Bieber, Katy Perry and Maroon 5.

“Gangnam Style” is a 2012 K-pop single by the South Korean rapper Psy, 34 year old. It has been featured in broadcasting networks such as CNN and Bloomberg, mentioned by numerous celebrities, and has also led to various user-generated parodies and reaction videos from all over the world. “Gangnam Style” is widely praised for its humour, catchy rhythm as well as Psy’s unusual dance moves that have introduced many people to K-pop. Upon its release, the song took off on virtually all Korean billboard charts, portal search sites and online music stores, but it began garnering international attention after the video went viral on YouTube during the third week of July 2012. The mass appeal of the music video has been attributed to its signature dance move known as “the horse-riding dance,” which combines the stylistic elements of shuffle dancing and hand movements resembling the posture of a horseback rider.

“Gangnam Style” is a Korean language colloquialism that refers to a luxurious lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district, an affluent and trendy area of Seoul. The music video depicts Psy dancing at various locations in Gangnam. The song is about “the perfect girlfriend who knows when to be refined and when to get wild.”
In colloquial Korean, “오빤 강남 스타일 (Oppan Gangnam style)” may be translated as “I love the Gangnam style” or literally “Your big brother is Gangnam Style”. The Korean word 오빠 (oppa) means “a female’s elder brother” but can be also used as a first-, second- or third-person masculine pronoun to designate a male who is elder or older than a female. Based on more recent cultural norms, the term has typically been used to refer to a boyfriend or male spouse. It is used as a first-person pronoun in this phrase. 오빤 (oppan) is an abbreviation of 오빠는 (oppaneun). 는 is a topic marker, which in this case means the implied subject of the sentence is the singer (오빠). The verb “to be” is omitted, as is often the case in such short Korean sentences. Thus the literal translation of “Oppan Gangnam style” is “Your big brother [is] Gangnam Style”.

This bizarre and comical horse riding dance has influenced everyone even the famous Hollywood stars such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Robbie Williams, etc.

Guess what.. Gangnam Style also gaining attention of our PM.

English Translation:

A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
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
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
