Psy’s Gangnam Style ‘vulgar, pompous and unbearable’?
Psy appeared "pompous" in the horse stable, beach and the sauna, repeating the phrase ‘Oppan Gangnam style’ in the music video, People's Daily reported.
It said that the song's global popularity may be attributed to its portrayal of the life of a "tall, rich and handsome man that many losers dream about".
Many South Koreans "yearn to live" in Gangnam, the "most affluent and dynamic area" in Seoul, but it is more often than not just a dream.
"Underneath the pompous and luxurious life shown in the music video of 'Gangnam Style' lies the sadness of losers," the daily said.
‘Gangnam Style’ is undoubtedly a "subtle social satire on the wide gap between the rich and the poor".
A large number of (Chinese) people like this song, but others find it vulgar and unbearable, it said.
An internet user said: "With more than 300 million views, I expected it to be a good song, but it turned out not. I do not know what you guys think about it, but I for one find it vulgar."
"Such a vulgar song will be popular just for a short time. Songs that last forever must be those touching your soul rather than such ostentatious songs," the user said.
Another internet user said that the song is quite catchy “but its music video and the cultural content is vulgar".
"Its popularity will accelerate the vulgarization of world cultures," he said.
