K-Pop: Gangnam Style

If there is one K-pop song that is synonymous with summer 2012, it's rapper Psy's "Gangnam Style."  Gangnam is an area of Seoul known for being ritzy, often compared to Beverly Hills, California.  Maybe that's why we've never been there.... 

The song is everywhere and its music video has exploded in Korea and around the world.  We hear the lyrics blasting from restaurants, night clubs and retail shops at least three times a day when on the streets of Busan.   The tune is catchy and the dance (miming riding a horse) is hilarious.  In a play next month we're performing a short part of the dance with our three and four year olds. Not kidding. 


Today my Friday morning got even better as I realized the Oregon Duck recently made his own video version of the hit song. 


I love the unexpected blend of my two worlds.  Go Ducks!
