Psy Releases “Gentleman”


Global Kpop star Psy had been hinting at a comeback for a few months and announced a very big worldwide exclusive live concert via YouTube for the 13th April. Psy released his newest single “Gentleman” digitally at 12:00 midnight in each timezone, and within minutes the song was topping charts in several countries including #1 in Vietnam, #2 in Singapore, #3 in Hong Kong, #4 in Cambodia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, and managed to reach a #25 ranking in the UK.


The release of the new single was celebrated with Psy during the “Happening” concert, with a dress code of the colour white, he wanted to symbolize the burning passion of fans who will light up the dark night sky at the concert. With over 50,000 people attending, Psy saw this as a perfect opportunity to flaunt some cash and flogged out a whopping $2.7 million to install huge LED TV’s to make sure everyone could see the performance, and bought in the visual contents team “Possible Production” who employed special effects staff from USA and Japan. The same team had previously worked with his YG labelmates Big Bang and 2NE1 during their world tours which were also huge hits.

Psy became a worldwide household name with his release of “Gangnam Style“, a video and song that went totally viral and now stands as the most viewed video in YouTube history with over 1.5 billion views. His latest single Gentlemen features a tagline and word play of “Mother Father Gentleman”, while the witty video features Korean variety show comedians Yoo Jae Suk, Noh Hong Chul, Gil, Park MyungSoo, HaHa, and Jung hyungdong. Gangnam Style became huge with its easy yet fun to dance choreography, but this time round he chose a dance that many Kpop fans will recognize as the Hip Sway dance from Brown Eyed GirlsAbracadabra“. This could also be the reason as to why GaIn from Brown Eyed Girls was his lead lady this time round, bringing some sassy cuteness to the music video.

Check out the video below. Do you think this will be another worldwide hit? Do you think it has lived up to the expectation of Gangnam Style?
