뮤직: 젠틀맨

OK. My friend insisted that I’d watch the latest Psy video. And so I did, this morning! I must say that Psy is not among my favorite korean artists in term of music so I wouldn’t buy it but I must also say that his videos are quite entertaining. He’s very creative in his way. You can say a lot of things but you cannot say his videos leave you completely indifferent! It got over 4 million views in a couple of hours!!!

So I watched it and as always, it has this crazy sweet flavor! It starts off with Psy walking around with four 3rd age valets carrying around his stuff. When you know Korean society, it is a totally absurd situation that goes right against major Korean values such as respect for elders. On the contrary, just like in African societies, younger people would reach out and help older people carrying their stuff. The video then switches to a kids’ playground where Ha Dong Hun is showing off his best (but extremely tiring) dance move. If you follow Running Man every week since the beginning, like I do, you don’t need to see his face to recognize him! haha (no pun intended!^^) Then we see Psy playing tricks on girls at the gym and tea house (with No Hong Cheol in the background and his famous dance move from Gangnam Style music video). Then Yu Jae Seok, who is submitted to a natural and urging need, rushes to the elevator in his laminated yellow suit but Psy presses all the buttons to slow down the elevator. At this point in the video, we understand that Psy’s character is everything but a gentleman. Psy borrowed his main dance move from Brown Eyed GirlsAbracadabra. We can see him show off his flexible hip moves in company of HaHa and Yu Jae Seok who is wearing a Narsha’s Abracadabra style wig. Then on we can see appearances from Park Myeong Su, Jeong Jun Ha and Jeong Hyeong Don. At 1:31 appears beautiful Ga In, Brown Eyed Girls maknae, and follows a “seductive” face off between the two that ends up with main choreography at the golf court.

Although the song is different, the feeling is the same. We can see a lot of similarities with Gangnam Style. Same kind of music with an English hook (mother father gentleman), same kind of song pattern, same kind of video editing. There are more celebrities featuring and it has clear references to his previous hit but also to variety shows such as Running Man. Several featured locations in the video were used at some point in Running Man. Also, obviously the “arrogant” dance move from Abracadabra is repeated all along with a little MJ‘s topping. One person is missing BIG TIME here, Jo Kweon!!! That is the big question. WHERE IS JO KWEON??? Where they scared he might have stolen the show??? Everybody knows he rocks the dance like no other! He’s unbeatable.  Overall, not much risks taken here. If it worked once, why not twice but I don’t believe there is a chance for this becoming as big as Gangnam Style though or  could it be?.. Will it reach 1 billion views this time  too? To conclude, I wish him success.
