kpop fav of the day: music videos from 2010 to 2012 #17, psy’s gangnam style

Oh yeah. You heard us right.

We’re definitely going there.

Every day until the end of May we’re counting down our favorite MVs from 2010 to 2012.

Doing… That Dance into the #17 spot is…

PSY’s Gangnam style.

Say what you will about Gangnam Style but PSY was a smart guy bringing this shit over here.

As he walked back to Gangnam-dong counting his fat stacks laughing all the way to the bank, it got people asking questions, like, “wtf even is Kpop?” and it, to this day, still has people looking at you funny when you say you like the genre.

“What, like Gangnam Style?” they ask with equal parts intrigue and uncertainty about the state of your friendship.

“Well, yes, but also, no,” you tell them as you put on your PNation playlist.

This MV is just PSY being unapologetically, well, PSY. And it’s fucking delightful. You sort of just sit there looking windblown, mouth open as you watch him, with his entire heart, do this in as many places as possible:

It taught those out of the kpop bubble the word oppa, for better or for worse.

And then there’s… this blowing up of the area where literally every boy group to exist after comes to shoot their MVs, which is kinda rude.

And… there’s also that.

Plenty of this.

And a little of this.

It’s iconic. And if you haven’t seen this music video yet, go pay your kpop dues and watch it now.
