South Korean Pop sensation PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ has created a big buzz on YouTube within a few days of its release in July this year. The music video has become the second most watched video ever. However, as per John Hirai, head of music at YouTube’s Korea-Japan branch, the South Korean video would become the most watched one on YouTube in about a month.

Though ‘Gangnam Style’ is rocking everywhere almost across the globe perhaps India has not been introduced to it. Again, it is also a matter of proud for the Asians as the single number this time has made a buzz in international pop world from South Korea.

So far the music video has been viewed over 730 million times on YouTube and a number of world political and entertainment biggies including Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt, the British Prime Minister David Cameron and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon have shown their great interest tapping to the tune of “Gangnam Style”. Even Moon hailed the song as a “force for world peace”. The video debuted at number one on the Gaon Chart, the national record chart of South Korea.

The title “Gangnam Style” is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District of Seoul. PSY’s singing and amusing dance moves in the music video has earned laurels.

After trending in YouTube, PSY (34) has so far performed live in various locations such as Madison Square Garden, The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Samsung commercials.

The crazy signature step of the song, the horse-riding steps have become a smash hit and its cultural impact has been seen at many places throughout the world. The song has so far already crossed the record of singer Jennifer Lopez’s dance hit “On the Floor” from the second position. Of course, for now, it still trails behind Canadian teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, which has had over 795 million hits, but is expected to surpass this record soon too.

The number has also been recognized by Guinness World Records as the most “liked” video in YouTube history.

English Translation of the Song

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humane during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh
