With all this ‘Gangnam Style‘ craze, it brought me back some years ago, when a friend of mine got obsessed with this one k-pop group called S.E.S . I don’t understand the language, but it had a nice beat to it, and, the girls looked mighty attractive, which is why my friend was obsessed with them. In any case, this is the one song that I could stand to listen.
Just wanted to let you guys hear this tidbit I discovered whilst browsing the vast inter webs. Feel free to right click this link and listen to the sheer impressiveness.
Gangnam Style/Disco/Beethoven Mash Up
Okay, what? I don’t understand a word of this. I’m an American of Filipino descent. The only words of this song I understand are “Heeeeeeeey, sexy lady!” That’s it. But that doesn’t stop Gangnam Style from being today’s Earworm. I hate Korean dramas. I hate Chinese dramas. I hate Filipino dramas. I hate all Asian dramas. Except maybe Japanese anime. That’s something mostly every Asian loves. But then there’s the music. Chinese power ballads. J-pop. K-pop. WHAT IS THIS?! All things Korean have taken over the minds of my generation, but thankfully, it hasn’t caught up to me. I first caught wind of this song when JustKiddingFilms (A YouTube group of film makers, known for being hilarious) made a parody of the song. It definitely helped that the extremely gorgeous Geo Antoinette (http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4bc4nMujn1qc06bjo1_500.jpg) and the insanely hot Holly Lee (http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lrg3y1Xgk81qa4jmro1_500.png) are in the video. But it’s really funny, so here it is. And then, I saw a picture on Facebook posted by WongFuProductions (Another YouTube group of film makers, known for being hilarious and very dramatic). This is said picture. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/540362_10150981849136767_88683596_n.jpg This post led to another parody video called Gundam Style. They replaced all the faces with Gundam heads. Now THAT, is hilarious. Oh, and here is the actual video and song.
The girls in this video aren’t too bad, either. Heh. And finally, the English translation to the song. Within the comments section on YouTube, I learned that oppa is what some girls call a love interest in Korea, because it makes the guy feel manly. And Gangnam is a suburb of Seoul, so Gangnam style is the style of Gangnam. Yes. That literal.
