Sorry this shit came out so late, we were swamped with the T-ara shit blowing up in everyone's faces added to general laziness and/or life. All excuses aside, we're probably going to use this weekend to push out reviews/commentary on all the groups that have made debuts/comebacks in the past few weeks. AKF oppa kicked it off with his reviews of D-Unit and m-flo's Square One, so without further ado I officially declare Review Dump Weekend in session.
Here's the review for PSY's wildly popular Gangnam Style.
PSY's Gangnam Style comeback was pretty well anticipated due to the number of high profile collabs and featurings he was making for his return to the music scene after 2 years of hiatus. When I found out that he was going to have Hyuna AND Yoo Jae Suk in his MV, I was extremely pumped.
Thankfully, PSY delivered on all accounts with Gangnam Style and its MV. The MV is, for lack of a better word, a simple clusterfuck of "WTF" and dance bits spread in for flavor. But even "simple" is misleading, it's anything but. Take a look for yourself the bits I found the most funny/bizarre.
|Yes, that's PSY in a sauna with a bunch of gundals (Korean gangsters, aka Yakuza/Mafia).|
|He blows shit up just cause he can.|
|PSY can appreciate a fine piece of ass just like the rest of us here at AKF.|
|Like I said, zero shits. Literally.|
|Yoo Jae Suk's role boils down to a random dance battle challenger. He does all his|
famous dance moves (including the Grasshopper dance!!), so that's something at least.
|At first it looked like Hyuna was going to be a random love interest, but realized PSY ain't no|
cradle-robber. She's just eye candy to be danced with in the MV.
|Surprise cameo by Noh Hong Chul was hilarious, especially with his creeper face.|
|He even got Baby PSY-look-alike to join.|
The song itself is quite good. Ignore the typical
I personally don't have much to complain about this song, only that it's rather basic structurally for someone of PSY's ability. He's still a jjangbak performer, so his lives make the song 100 times better. Just take a look at his performance at the Yeosu Expo, people went APESHIT even more so than his lives for Right Now!
I could say more about the song, but everyone's too busy wanking about how popular it is around the world. While I love PSY and think it's great that the man that gave no fucks about an American debut made more waves with this MV than SNSD did with their Letterman/Kelly performances (and he happened to do it with Hyuna, the other person who gathered a surprising amount of attention with her Bubble Pop solo), people really REALLY need to hop off his dick with the "Global Superstar" shit. Let's not even get started about the YG stans suddenly using Justin Bieber as part of their bragging rights.
|"Seriously, get out of here with that shit."|
Great song, random RANDOM WTF-worthy schizo MV about PSY galloping Gangnam Style up and down Korea generally giving 0 shits.
- addictive summer jam
- random MV
- Yoo Jae Suk, Hyuna, Noh Hong Chul cameos
- lives are JJANGBAK
- basic song structure
- underwhelming use of Yoo Jae Suk & Hyuna
Excuse me if I don't make sense or if this is a shittier review than you're used to getting. I drank and I'm sleepy.
