Song + dance. How Korean dance “Gangnam Style” broke YouTube counter?

The very title of the song “Gangnam Style” — refers to the Gangnam district in South-Eastern Seoul. About this most densely populated and prosperous area, the author of the song knew firsthand — because he was born there on December 31, 1977. When Park Che sang began to write songs and perform, he took the pseudonym PSY (from the English. Psyho — crazy), which corresponded perfectly to his crazy ability to “light” and perfectly ernichat. So “Gangnam Style” is a set of “show-off” and antics. The song is sung on behalf of the guy who “frames” the girl. Both of them are “quiet” on the outside, but incredibly sexy and irresistible inside. As PSY himself said, the song is dedicated to the perfect girl who “knows when to be subtle and when to be wild.” Well, what we hear is ” Oops!”, in fact, not an emotional exclamation, but quite a meaningful Korean word “Oppan”. Literally it means “big brother girl”, but girls usually call their Boyfriends or idols. Translation — Ksenia from Khabarovsk: the Girl is quiet, but this is only a game, a Girl who dissolves her hair when the time comes, a Girl modestly dressed, but much sexier than a girl without clothes, a Reasonable girl. I’m a guy, a quiet Guy, but it’s just a game, a Guy who goes crazy when the time comes, a Guy with an idea, not muscles, I’m that guy. The main “lure” Gangnam Style” was, of course, not so much the song as the insanely funny video. On it PSY in invariable black glasses (which he does not remove even in the pool) every time appears before us in the most different places and amusing situations. By the way, for the filming of the video, the singer attracted other Korean “stars” — two popular comedians and singer henu. All this “bacchanalia” would not be so killer, if not for the marvelous and comical dance that PSY is constantly dancing in the company of cute Korean women. As well as through the video “the red thread” is the image of a horse (alive or carousel), and the main “PA” dance like the movement of the rider. The singer then “jumps”, clutching the imaginary “reins”, then turns over his head imaginary “whip”. It’s hard to believe where this plump Korean so much flexibility and drive! Psy himself admitted that he was shooting a video for his fans and did not expect that it is like a “virus” will spread on the Internet. Yes, and disrupt the enthusiastic praise on Twitter from celebrities such as Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Tom cruise… the Flywheel of success began to spin in July 2012 — after the video “Gangnam Style” was flooded on YouTube. Already on November 25, the creation of the Korean overtook the number of views of the clip “Baby” idol girls Justin Bieber. And on December 21 of the same year, it became the first YouTube video watched by more than a billion people. Probably for the first time since the “Macarena” dance left the clip directly to the people — all together jumped on invisible horses. The victorious March of the song was also facilitated by the fact that the singer gave it to everyone’s use — abandoning claims about copyright. In a matter of months, PSY became a world-class “star” for the first time in the history of pop music in Korea. “Gangnam Style” led the hit parade of Britain, and in the States reached the 2nd position. Although it is unlikely that the local audience understand the lyrics of the song anything but “sexy lady” (the rest were sung in Korean). However, for the correct perception is entirely missing and the clip. We have the same basurman text habitually altered in all sorts of indecent “Kondom-style” and “OPA! G… om became!”. What can we say about the glory of the singer at home! In February 2013, he was the one who had the honor to entertain the crowd in the square before the inauguration ceremony of Park Geun-Hye, Korea’s first female President… Meanwhile, the YouTube counter kept spinning and spinning until December 1, 2014 … broke. The thing is, he had his limits.— 2 147 483 647 views. When the number of viewed “Gangnam Style” exceeded this figure, the counter began to show an erroneous number. It was urgently recoded, and the video continued to collect its “harvest”. In the Wake of success PSY recorded another version of his superhit — “Oppa Is Just My Style”. Now it was performed from the position of a woman, and the main vocal part was given to the mentioned singer HeNe. Also in 2013, PSY has released two more funny songs clip — “Gentleman” and “Hangover” (the latter sung together with Snoop Dogg). Of course, such a stir as “Gangnam Style”, they did not cause, but their number of YouTube views can envy more than one material pop star.
