PSY, the funky South Korean artist that moves and acts like our very own Bayani Agbayani, is now making waves across the Philippines with his new single "Gangnam Style" aka "Oppa Gangnam Style".
"Oppa Gangnam Style" debuted with millions and millions of hits every day, hugely because of its epic official music video and catchy tune.
The song is a huge mashup of things that are pretentious and whatnot. For example, at the opening seconds of the video, PSY can be seen sunbathing not at a beach, but on a children's playground; PSY is seen rocking at an elderly bus, instead of his own tour bus; sitting on what seems to be an expensive sportscar but is actually a toilet.
The video, which was uploaded on July 15, 2012, currently has 63 million hits and counting. It is also acclaimed worldwide by various media agencies and celebrities.

Gangnam is the richer part of Korea, more like the Beverly Hills of the US or our Global City or Greenhills or Rockwell, whichever suits your taste.
Not coincidentally, Hyuna of the South Korean female pop group 4 Minute, released her own version of "Gangnam Style", this time her singing the lead with PSY rocking on the background and at the chorus sections.

Hyuna's version of "Oppa Gangnam Style" heavily references the young women of Gangnam, from the cutesy voice to the catchy actions, showing insight to foreigners of what to expect at that side of Korea. Her version also gets more flak as people tend to misinterpret the idea behind her version.
Other names for this song include "Open Condom Style" and "Gundam Style".
Nelly Furtado sang a version of the "Gangnam Style" in her August 16 Philippine concert.
