Gangnam Style Infographic–Mashable

Last month we came across an awesome music video called Gangnam Style by PSY. We love creating infographics so we thought why don’t we just put something together to celebrate when his video hits a 100 million views on Youtube?

Enjoy!

Gangnam Style defines the rise of k-pop, and this time has galloped into the U.S, hurdling over record after record. PSY’s satirical look at the wealth gap in Seoul, South Korea could be overlooked by the flashiness and freshness of his music video, but “Gangnam Style” is more than just an aspirational way of life…

  1. Only problem I have with this post is the background. the radiating rays remind me of Japanese Imperial flag which has same connotation as Nazi’s Swastika to Koreans and other Asian countries that were annexed by Imperial Japan.
