For this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week we’ve chosen “Gentleman” by PYS (싸이). It was release just last night during the huge 50,000 concert at the Seoul World Cup Stadium and streamed live via Youtube. Here are our reasons for choosing “Gentleman” for our song of the week (they are very simple this week):

  • Firstly it’s PSY
  • Secondly the dance is similar but different from Gangnam Style.
  • Finally the video is corny, crazy and something you can watch time after time.
  • On the negative side; it’s got some Gangnam size boots to fill and it may not match it’s bigger brothers popularity. Plus the obvious product placement is a little un-kpop
