What is ‘Gangnam Style’ and What are the Translated Lyrics? [VIDEO]

YouTube

Move over LMFAO, there is a new dance in town, and it’s from halfway across the planet! It’s called “Gangnam Style” and it’s from Korea from the artist Psy. The dance is hilarious, as you’ll see, and the song is pretty catchy, but it is 98% Korean, so what the heck does it all mean and what is he saying when translated to English?

Gangnam Style” is Korean slang referring to the upscale fashion and lavish lifestyle associated with trendsetters in Seoul’s Gangnam district. It would be similar to the word “swag” in English.

Since the majority of the song is sung in Korean, it’s difficult to understand what the song is actually about and watching the video gives us little insight beside the lyric “sexy lady”, and as it turns out, the translated lyrics don’t help much either:

Oppa’s Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humanly during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
You know what I’m saying

Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

So, there you go, it’s just a catchy song with a fun dance and no meaning, enjoy it because I’m sure you’ll be sick of it soon…Oppa’s Gangnam style!
