GANGNAM STYLE:

 226 TParadox, Sat, 5th Jan '13 11:38:25 AM Relationship Status: In another castle
When the traditional newsmedia notices it, it's already dead.

But the whole issue was that Psy got booked to perform for the President, and somebody did some digging in his history and found that about fifteen years ago the U.S. was involved in some S. Korean tragedy that hurt him directly, and he went off on a tirade about how evil the U.S. was and how we should all die.

Essentially the usual story about how there's no forgiveness anymore now that we have records of everything.

Just awesome like that
I do think it's kind of stupid for people to get so reactionary over something that was inherently an extreme emotional reaction. It's no different than how someone who was in a POW camp in Vietnam might harbor a hatred of Asians.

Exactly. It was a long time ago, and he was speaking from a painful place, and now over a decade later people are saying it totally means that if you put him on stage in front of the President, he will shoot the President.

Then they should do some research in Korean history and learn how past is past. Like how a death row inmate became president. Or how a daughter of a controversial dictator was popularly elected last month.

On a different note, here's another Infinite Challenge clip. I want to post this one because it's basically an exclusive interview on Psy.

Here, Psy and elevator guy Noh Hong-Chul talk together in a New York restaurant and reflect back on what happened up to now. Psy talks about how he met MC Hammer and Madonna, his featuring in Saturday Night Live, and how Korean celebrity Yoo Jae-Seok (yellow suit guy) joined the music video, etc.

This song has actually entertained me the more popular it gets. It gets funnier with each view, to me.

Odd effect, never had that one.

...and the original video's at 1.2 billion views. I would like to revise my prediction of two billion as being much more likely. tongue

Infinite Challenge episode. (Before you ask, these are Youtube uploads by MBC network itself, the network that hosts this program.)

This episode sheds light on what yellow guy and elevator guy were doing before they and Psy showed up in Times Square on New Year's Eve. Also features Ha Dong-Hoon (Haha), a German-born Korean singer/celebrity and a co-star of this show with the other two. This clip focuses on their arrival in New York (for the 3rd time for Noh Hong-Chul), and meeting up with MC Hammer and Psy a few hours before they perform. More clips will be uploaded in due time.

d Roy are you reading this sad

Here's the Times Square performance. Psy, MC Hammer, and the three friends mentioned above.

This goes back between the Korean program and clips from a US broadcast (featuring Ryan Seacrest).

[up][up] These hideous screeches of terror are far more terrifying than those that were made when Hide and Seek was sampled in a Jason Derulo song.

Anyways, I'm going to dance on a pile of symbolic ashes, if you need me.
