We all know that ‘Oppa Gangnam Style’ of Psy garnered world’s attention. It even reached more than one billion views in YouTube, the #1 Most Watched Video.
YG Entertainment plans to release Psy’s new song on April. The question is, will it be another ‘Gangnam Style’? Now, Psy is said to be working on finding another taste of laugh factor to be added on his music video for the song. He wanted it to be far from ‘Gangnam Style’ attack. “We’ll need feedbacks that my new song is totally different from ‘Gangnam Style’s touch of humour, so we’re currently searching for that fun factor.”, said Psy.
Two great persons are also working for Psy’s new baby, Composer Yoo Gun Hyung, a “Gangnam Style” apprentice, completed the song in Los Angeles with Psy; and Yang Hyun Suk approved for the first version and added two cents for the 2nd and 3rd edits of the song.
April will be the month for our questions to be answered.

Ever since an October 2011 New York Times account of an absolutely ridiculous-sounding sold-out K-pop showcase at Madison Square Garden, I’ve been spending altogether too much time chasing the feeling that I got watching my first K-pop video. SHINee’s “RingDingDong.” I’ve been able to get that feeling pretty often. South Korea, see, has figured out pop music pretty much perfectly over the last couple of years. Throughout Asia, and in pockets of the West as well, the music coming out of a few different management companies in Seoul has become absurdly popular, and it’s done it by taking the musical and visual vocabularies of late-’90s American teenpop and amping them up into Blade Runner pleasure-bombs, looking and sounding like an optimist’s idea of the future. The clothes and hairstyles and camera-angles and cheesed-out CGI effects are all cranked up way past 10, and so are the songs’ hooks. If you have any love in your heart for willfully weightless, blissed-out, shame-free pop music, there is a whole lot to love in the 20 videos below. Read more
