    It will be sad if he is a so called 'one hit wonder ' in the western world.
    He has a song called 'right now' from his previous album that a few people I know think is even better that Gangnam style.

    Still saying that the London Style video spin-off is superior.

    I was thinking the same thing, he's been a pop star in Korea for quite awhile. He may be a one hit wonder in "Murica, but his legacy will continue on in Korea.
     
  9. This could only be achieved by asian ppl, now with this move, they show to the world that they have a superior stupidity and bad taste than the occidental ppl, surpassing a canadian and the whole US combined....LOL the song its really bad, and not even the anime can match this. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!
     
  10. Funny how the Solve Media captcha reads 'one hit wonder' :p

    They don't buy it because they can download it or listen to it online >_>

    As much as I love the USA Hate Train (and that is exactly what the Murica BS is) Psy was an unknown in most every part of the world except for a few parts of Asia. Every other part of the world jumped on the Gangnam bandwagon when it came out and all helped make it popular not just the USA so expand your hate and add everyone else. There is a very good chance he will be a one hit wonder everywhere in the world and continue to be an unknown after this so hate the world.

    Is it only me that is utterly impressed with the technology behind this. Youtube is able to serve his video (nevermind the bajillion others) at 4000 times every minute. The bandwidth and disk I/O it must use to serve that video reliably and speedily. I mean I just buffered that London Style vid at 720p in 30seconds !

    That is really harsh to grade PSY as a one hit wonder as he was already very popular in Korea well before Gangnam Style came onto the scene.

    :(...
