i get its being overplayed and hyped especially for those that heard/knew about it a long time ago and probably heard it a billion times already where they're sick of it, but there are tons of people who seem to recently be hearing it for the first time. If youtube views are anything to judge by, it seems the masses are JUST hearing it for the first time.

Fair enough, but here in SoCal the shit gets mad reps.

I ain't tryin to hate, I love me some Korean shit, but its a bit much (I thought the 'like a G-6' hype from Asians was a bit over the top however, so who am I to judge?).

I think it is time however for an Asian version of the Eurovision song contest.

i think the Koreans are more proud than anything else. I think sometimes as a minority in a place it feels like (even if its not true like in NY where we like Korean stuff, and in Japan where Korean everything is super popular) that everyone is looking down at what you like, your food, your music, etc. So when something like this hits and everyone likes it, it feels good. Everyone is celebrating your country in a way.

When PSY performed in NY the other day there was utter joy from the koreans on the street, and my korean friends think its the coolest thing ever that people like a KPOP artist. It's just all feel good.

Japanese feel the same about Darvish or Ichiro, like that. That it's one of their own and the place they like a million things from has now embraced one of them.

I honestly can't believe how crazy this has blown up.

I was at a karaoke bar in SF this weekend. Pretty tame up until this white dude walks up and just kills it with this song. Everyone was going bananas. I have to give dude credit, he did a hell of a job. He was dancing and singing and it was pretty fun to watch

That would be badass in the right bar.
