Actually I was amazed that it became a hit. I don’t know what made this song became so viral everywhere because for me, there’s nothing much in this song.. The song is ok., the horse dance is new but that’s all. Nothing so special about it. It didn’t replay in my mind over and over again. It’s my personal opinion, so for all Gangnam Style fans out there, no bashing please.

But still, I give my salut to Psy. He proofs that an Asian singer can succeed outside Asia even without English song.As I remember he took part at the song writing and create the dance move by himself. Good work Psy!
