Telltale signs of a global/viral hit: The PM mentions it in his National Day Speech, the internet is populated by 247365 different parodies of the song, and your four-year-old nephew, who barely remembers his ABCs, starts to repeat the chorus of ‘Oppan Gangnam Style’ like a broken tape recorder while mimicking its iconic dance moves at every family gathering. True story.
Thanks to his summer hit song, which is best remembered for its horse-like dance moves and catchy dance beat, Psy quantum-leaped his way from relatively unknown B-list singer to A-list global star -- and everyone loves a rags to riches story. Is it even any surprise that he is also now the most famous South Korean personality? We bet on our last dollar this won’t be the last you hear or see of him though. Rumour has it the K-Pop star is now working on a collaboration featuring Justin Bieber. And you know what they say when you put the current King of YouTube (Psy) with the former-reigning King of YouTube (Justin Bieber) together – you can only expect an epic hit of cataclysmic proportions. Amen.
