It may sound funny to you guys that i am still unable to get, “Why this is so song praised, loved and aped ?”
After doing some research of my own, which basically consisted of net surfing, jabbering with some friends and strangers; i deduced that it is popular cause of crazy dance moves, catchy beat and lyrics .
Well yes, i would like to emphasis on lyrics cause the translation doesn’t even make sense . The video is too colorful like a modern art painting . And no one knows what it means . It’s funny how some creativity breaks some barrier and brings revolution .
PSY (Park Jae-sang ) has done a really great job . His song talks about the life of people of Gangnam , which is a neighborhood in Seoul, South Korea. His birth place is none other than Gangnam itself . Overall , this song is dedicated to his birthplace . In some way or the other i found the lifestyle of Gangnam district amusing , worth watching and enjoying .
In the end , i would just like to conclude this discussion with this; something which is distant , amusing and far beyond our mental grasp rise to fame .
I guess this is the law of attraction . Something which is hard to understand, all of a sudden becomes attractive and runs in fashion . This is the reason behind the success of modern art .
