Day 28: Anything you’d like.
Surprisingly, I had to think about this one. But I found something fun to draw from something my friend Perry shared with me recently. Here ya go.
Who or what is that, I hear you asking. This was drawn from the art for the popular single “Gangnam Style” by K-pop (Korean Pop) artist Psy.
Here’s the incredibly awesome and weird music video (it’s worth the 4 minutes):
At the moment I’m writing this, the video has over 97.1 MILLION views on YouTube. It’s become popular outside of Korea for the strange and goofy music video, Psy’s ‘unusual’ dance moves (for which he is apparently known in Korea), and a lot of people find it pretty funny that it’s easy to misinterpret the chorus as “Open Condom Style” or “Gundam Style” (Gundam is a popular animé show featuring battling robots).
After looking up the lyrics, they are “Oppan Gangnam Style”, which, according to the internet, translates as “Oppa is Gangnam Style”. Gangnam is apparently the more affluent district in Seoul, Korea i.e. it’s where the rich folks hang out, and we can just assume that Oppa is some sort of reflexive pronoun.
The video has been parodied ad nauseam; some of them are worth checking out, but I’ll leave that to you, if you’re so inclined.
