Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Sequel, ‘Gentleman’ Music Video Hits YouTube [Video]

PSY’s “Gentleman” music video has been finally released this weekend, and as expected, it’s fifty shades of amazing.

Everybody forgot about the growing tensions as eyes and hears were on the Korean peninsula on Saturday because of Psy’s new music video, “Gentleman,” the follow-up to megahit “Gangnam Style,” which premiered during a concert in Seoul.

On Saturday, the Korean rapper unveiled the music video for his new song “Gentleman,” the follow up to his incredibly famous hit “Gangnam Style” in, well, style.

The 35-year-old presented the highly expected music video at to a packed crowd at Seoul’s World Cup Stadium. Another 160,000 people watched it online, reports The New Yourk Daily News.

Those well-versed in “Gangnam Style” see quite similar faces like the dancing funny man in the yellow suit (aka comedian Yoo Jae Suk), the man in the cowboy hat who dances over the rapper in an elevator (aka entertainer/businessman Noh Hong Chul) and hoards of hilarious senior citizens. But, “Gentleman” has an added sexual twist, Billboard reports.

“Despite the new single being titled “Gentleman” the video showcases the K-pop king being anything but. He’s pulling chairs out from beneath beautiful women, making little kids cry and attempting to pull off sunbathing girls’ tops,” the site adds.

“That is, until popular and sexy K-pop singer Ga In shows up in a body-hugging football outfit. Now, the tables are turned on PSY who is having chairs pulled out from underneath him.”

Ga In is a member of K-pop girl group Brown Eyed Girls who had also reached success in solo career – her single “Bloom” peaked at No. 2 on the K-Pop Hot 100 in October and latest single “Brunch” just debuted at No. 36 earlier this week.

The energetic isngle features the spoken hook “I’m a mother-father gentleman.” However, it’s not like a Psy video without a crazy dance a-la “Gangnam Style’s” horse-riding. This time, the most prominent and noticable move is some kind of subtle hip-sway/pelvic thrust.

The song — a satire of a self-proclaimed “gentleman” trying to woo women at a party — includes much more English lyrics than the previous Psy’s hit in a clear nod to the singer’s newfound global audience.

“Let me tell you about myself. I’m such a charmer with guts, vigor and humor,” Psy sings in Korean before launching into the song’s English catch-line: “I’m a mother-father gentleman.”

“Gonna make you sweat. Gonna make you wet. You know who I am? Wet Psy!” he sings in English.

Despite the fact that “Gentleman” is heading straight to the top of the download charts on half-a-dozen South Korean online music sites, the reaction of the critics on social networking sites was mixed.

A snap poll of 2,000 users on Daum.net, a leading South Korean news portal, showed 38.9 percent rate the song as either good or very good with 48.3 percent of those thinking that it’s rather mediocre or dull.

The released music video has scored mixed reviews as well.

“Love it,” said Ryan Colin on YouTube. “Omg it’s completely the same as Gangnam style,” wrotes one YouTube user. “I liked the music .. but these girls who look like Asiatic dolls..Hummmmm…” claimed another one.
