Hello people and patients!
It's time to take a look back in time and describe our experience with the world's greatest kpop sensation: Psy!
His 2012 hit Gangnam Style quickly took over the world leaving everyone doing the infamous horse dance.
So what are our experiences with this worldwide phenomenon?
I was very surprised when Psy´s gangnam style became a hit. Because I subscribed to YG at Youtube, I had already listened the famous horse-riding song before it went viral. I liked the beat but the song just wasn't my cup of tea. Then one day I was late for school, I remember rushing to class when I heard some kids listening to Gangnam style, I was shocked!! How could they possibly know that song? Two weeks later Psy was everywhere: CNN, Tabloids etc. Now every time I mention that I listen to K-pop a lot of people say they know one song too, It´s called gangnam style.
This is kind of a funny story because when Psy took the charts by storm, I didn't even listen to kpop. I remember that I didn't get why everyone liked it so much. Eventually I started to like it too. But now that I listen to a lot of other kpop I don't think it is that special anymore. I know a lot of kpop songs that I think are way better!
I clearly remember finding this whole ordeal very...odd. I wasn't into kpop really, in fact I had never heard of it. I was under the impression that all Chinese people make weird music and do awkward dances. How wrong I was!
What is your 'Psy experience'?
With the official debut of I.O.I. coming up very soon I thought it would be a good idea to look back on some of the performances of produce 101. As you can imagine this post features all the spoilers, so if you have not watched the show yet go watch it no...
Dear patients and readers, In Korea, being polite is very important. This means you have to know how old someone is, what their status is and how their position compares to yours.
