Brace yourselves. Psy, the Korean pop singer/dancer/equestrian and brainchild behind ‘Gangnam Style’, has released a sequel to the radically popular hit. While the song, called ‘Gentleman’, has already hit the internet, the official premiere, including highly-anticipated new dance moves, has to wait until Saturday evening, when Psy will perform to an audience of over 50,000 at Seoul’s World Cup Stadium.
Despite the gigantic crowd and the, um, present situation regarding a certain neighbour to the North, authorities don’t seem too worried about any potential danger, says CNN:
Neither the government nor the concert organizers are concerned about any additional security measures for such a massive gathering of people in a public space, and tickets have been selling fast.
“The thought of danger never even occurred to me,” said Seoul resident Sungoh Bang who plans on attending the concert with a group of friends.
Now that that’s settled…
‘Gentleman’ has already found itself ranked as one of the top most searched keywords on South Korea’s online portal Naver, despite not having an officially released video.
The official premiere will be broadcast via YouTube live-stream on Saturday during the concert (5.30pm CST), presumably followed by thousands of video uploads featuring an eclectic range of cringe-worthy reenactments.
The question on everyone’s mind is: can any new dance move really outdo the revolutionary invisible horse motion that Psy and his legion of trailblazers produced in the original ‘Gangnam style’? The answer is no.
But get ready world, there will be new moves.
“I can’t tell you about the dance… all Koreans know this dance,” Psy told Reuters “but (those in) other countries haven’t seen it”.
Oh, that’s about to change.
