Gong Nam Style
Everybody on the planet knows the song, Gangnam Style. The world's biggest star is Psy. The funny thing is, when I go to Korea, I work in Gangnam. Before the song came out, the area didn't mean that much to me. It was groovy and all, but still it was no big deal. Now when I see a sign that says, welcome to Gangnam, I get all excited. The other day I was in a taxi and saw the sign and I wanted to jump out and take my photo standing in front of it. When Yun and I went to my cousin's wedding in Ireland, the second the Gangnam song came on, everybody jumped up and ran to the dance floor. They all knew every dance move of Psy's song by heart. I knew right then and there that this guy was huge. He's very hard not to like. I put the actual dance steps into my drawing just in case someone doesn't know the moves by now. The weird thing is, I didn't draw this in Gangnam even though I was in Seoul. I was in a different neighborhood at the time. I hope the Gangnam Style police don't give me a ticket when they see this drawing.
