(Artist) PSY (싸이)
« on: August 21, 2012, 05:09:06 PM »
He's taking the world by storm with Gangnam Style, so this forum needs a thread for the now internationally acclaimed rapper/singer/songwriter,

PSY



Stage Name: PSY (싸이)
Real Name: Park Jae-Sang (박재상)
Birthday: December 31, 1977
Label: YG Entertainment
Official Website: http://www.psypark.com/


Quote from: Wikipedia
"He is popular for his humorous videos and stage performances, for example, he performed on stage as Lee Hyori (a popular female Korean artist) in 2006. He has appeared on numerous variety programs, including Good Sunday: X-Man and The Golden Fishery.

PSY received his education in the United States, graduating from both Boston University and Berklee College of Music.[1] He is currently signed with YG entertainment. In 2012, the choreography for his song "Gangnam Style" was praised in international news, and has received over 39 million views on YouTube."

I am truly impressed by the effect of Gangnam Style. While other artists have tried to break into the world markets for years with very limited success, in just a matter of weeks PSY's Gangnam Style is being sung and danced by people all over the world. It's AMAZING!! Check out his appearance last night at the Dodgers Stadium in LA, where adults and children alike danced along to his extremely catchy hit song, doing PSY's now-famous "horse riding dance".





After the Gangnam Style music video, the following version was released featuring 4minute's Hyuna. Beware, your ears may not be pleased.

Man, this song has blown up to phenomenal proportions! People in America are beginning to catch on to it. I'm sure PSY never thought his song would be that viral. I mean celebs like Nelly Furtado covered it during one of her recent concerts, Bieber's agency wants to collaborate with him (even heard Bieber wants to do his own version, eck.  :smhid) PSY even got to perform it at the Dodgers Stadium.



I guess it's become like the new "Macarena". XD They're having an Atlanta flashmob this Saturday at Lenox Mall. Rei, you should check it out! Unfortunately, I have to work that day.  :thumbdown:

It really has become the new "Macarena" I wonder how long it'll be till we're sick of it. XD Fortunately for them PSY can speak English. The funniest thing about all this is that PSY puts all kpop singers/groups who tried to break into the US to shame. I mean BoA failed, Se7en failed, Wonders Girls hasn't reached as far, and SNSD ??? PSY didn't even try.  :lol:

Here's one. Gotham style!

By the time we all meet again, the craze will have passed... We could record individually and put together the JPH!P version XDDD Those who live close to each other could do group dance parts and Dai can do the elevator thing in Canada XD  Show how international JPH!P is with an all-over-the-world OPPAN JPH!P STYLE ^o^

I'm serious!!! Isn't anyone else up for this?  :rofl:

e-girl, we could do the Atlanta part  :on woohoo:


Btw, found this very accurate progession of addiction on FB. It's funny coz it's true (at least that's exactly how it was for me XD):

Actually, I enjoyed it a lot the first time I saw it. I remember listening to the audio for the song a day before the MV was released and not liking the song too much. But I kept hope that the MV would be great and would give me something to enjoy, as I had gained a little faith from "Right Now" MV. When the "Gangnam Style" MV launched, I loved it instantly, it just has so many entertaining things (including HyunA) to not like it immediately!

Woot!  :twothumbs Btw, they changed the flashmob location to Piedmont Park, Lenox Mall wouldn't let them do it there. Oh well, I still can't go. :P

I found this funny video. Usually when people do misheard lyrics videos, most of it is pretty dumb with repetitive and nonsensical words but I applaud this guy for actually finding English words that actually match the sounds of every Korean syllable in the song. Not to mention his vocals are pretty good. :lol:
