PSY and Soju are two South Korean icons that took the world by storm last year. The number of views on PSYs Gangnam Style video has now passed 1 Billion and sales of Soju outside of South Korea has increased hugely. Within the video above you’ll notice only small references to the iconic dance from 2012, which maybe a good thing. Each of the 13 shots within the Video range in difficultly from Level 1 (easy) to Level 5 (close to impossible).

PSY is joined in the videos by an unknown blonde haired girl, which shows that the video is aiming towards Western viewers not just Koreans. Gag Concerts Brownie also has a cameo. All the writing is in both English & Korean, which is another sign that the video is aimed at no only Koreans. Also the rumor is that PSY has been paid $3million for his Endorsement of Chamisul Soju over the next year, money well spent? ( Link)
